Keller Executive Search is an executive search and recruitment firm offering comprehensive headhunting solutions. Our headhunters specialize in headhunting top leadership talent. Keller Ireland helps companies find the most qualified talents for senior leadership positions and executive jobs. Our search services are bespoke and are tailored to meet the needs of the client and their organisation.
Executive search can be a time-consuming process. It can also require an ample amount of resources that HR departments in small- to medium-sized businesses may not have. Partnering with Keller Ireland to perform the search on the client’s behalf prevents companies from taking away resources from their HR team and causing strain. Instead, they can focus the resources on other business projects.
When headhunting for a leadership talent, such as a new CEO or a board director, it is simply not enough to focus on their talents and experiences. Other factors, including management style, personality, and cultural fit should also be taken into consideration. Failing to do so may result in the candidate failing to integrate into the company.
Our executive search services cover businesses and organisations in major industries in Ireland. However, we are also well-equipped to assist clients to fill niche positions or help companies find candidates for their leadership teams despite being in a sector where there is high demand but low talent availability.
Our recruitment services are bespoke. This means our executive search consultants tailor the search strategy to fit the needs of clients and the business. We can also limit our search to local talents or expand the headhunting process to include global prospects, depending on the client’s preference.
Our consultants are readily accessible before, during, and after the engagement. This allows clients to easily raise any issues that may arise during the search process, which gives us ample time to address the problem before it causes any unnecessary delays.
In addition, our consultants also value transparency. As such, we regularly update clients on the progress of the search.
Our consultants also place great importance on being discreet. We do not practice sharing the personal and confidential details of clients and candidates with unconcerned parties. This strategy prevents any leakage of sensitive materials that may put the company, the client, and the prospect at risk of backlash.

Keller can help organisations find the right person to become part of their leadership team. To do so, we need to have an understanding of what the company expects in a candidate for their team.
In the initial phase of the executive search, we, the client, and relevant stakeholders meet up to discuss the job requirements and the kind of person they are looking to hire. The client must also discuss whether they want the search limited to candidates living locally or expand the headhunting to include global talents.
Once these hiring parameters have been agreed upon, we will begin searching for candidates through both traditional and non-traditional recruitment channels. We will also utilize our extensive network of contacts for candidate referrals.
Talents who show interest in the position will go through extensive assessments, which involve background checks, credit checks, reference checks, and a confirmation of past performances and skills. Candidates who pass the assessment are then shortlisted.
During the final phase of the engagement, we will present the clients with the shortlisted candidates. The organisation has the option to perform its own evaluations and interviews before hiring an executive. Should the client fail to find a suitable candidate, we will offer to redo the search for free, as long as there are no changes to the hiring parameters.
