Executive and Managerial Recruitment in Luxembourg (FAQ)
What is an executive search agency?
An executive or managerial recruitment agency specialises in finding rare and highly qualified profiles. Headhunters apply a method of research called “direct approach” to connect with directors, executives or technical profiles that meet their clients’ needs.
Why entrust executive searches to a recruitment agency specialising in direct approach?
- Time saving for the HR department
- A targeted short-list of candidates
- An assignment carried out by consultants familiar with the Luxembourg job market
- Expert advice and support from professional and experienced recruiters
Working with an external recruiter
Here are the various stages in the collaboration process between the client and the executive search firm:
- Gathering information about the company: group, sector of activity (industry, finance, IT services, etc.)
- Identifying recruitment needs
- Advising and analysing the feasibility of the recruitment assignment in terms of market realities
- Creating a job offer and a job description
- Activating the search through candidate database, professional networks, etc.
- Extending the search for candidates outside Luxembourg
- Direct approach to existing professionals
- Interviews conducted by consultants
- Presentation of a short-list of candidates to the client
- Accompanying the client and candidates to interviews
- Helping with negotiations up to the signing of the employment contract (permanent contract)
- Following up of candidates throughout their trial period
Why is it difficult to recruit a qualified employee in Luxembourg?
Some factors making executive recruitment difficult in Luxembourg :
- Labour shortage: According to several studies by Statec, the OECD and the UEL (Union des Entreprises Luxembourgeoises), Luxembourg is facing a labour shortage that is forcing companies and recruitment agencies to extend their search beyond the border (France, Germany and Belgium) but also further afield. The whole of Europe is facing a shortage of labour, affecting both technical and academic professions.
- The attractiveness of the Grand Duchy: Despite the beauty of the natural and urban environment and the multiculturalism that attracts foreign workers, several factors are holding back potential candidates from a career in Luxembourg:
- Regular traffic jams on the A1, A3, A4, A6 and A13, which lengthen the working hours of cross-border workers.
- The high cost of living, particularly property prices.
- Aggressive methods used by recruitment agencies, which have made candidates less receptive to being approached by recruiters.
- A less competitive impatriation package than other European nations or financial hubs.
How to recruit an executive or senior manager in Luxembourg?
- A thorough understanding of the labour market in Luxembourg
- Impeccable work ethics
- A genuine interest in your business and your company
- A team of experienced consultants
- An independent agency with flexible methods
- A firm that focuses on both the assignment and offers expert advice to the employer
- An approach based on finding the perfect match between candidate and employer, not on receiving masses of off-target CVs.
