The term headhunters refers to professional recruiters that find ideal candidates to fill company vacancies. Some agencies concentrate on providing multiple workers for entry level positions. A special project, the opening of a new retail store, or factory workers needed for the overnight shift are often staffed via recruiting agencies.
Others focus on finding bright and experienced talent to take leadership and executive positions. High-level positions need to be filled as quickly as possible. Vacancies in key roles make a company vulnerable. The competition will hurry to announce a new product knowing the company cannot follow the example.
Whether it is a senior management position or one that requires a chief executive, the company has to scramble to temporarily complete those duties. That requires overtime costs, junior management professionals attempting to rise to the challenge, and a delay in progress.
