Executive Search

Executive Search


Finding the right candidate for that crucial leadership role is not an easy task. This person is often responsible for leading the organisation into the future and making decisions that affect employees, clients and even communities. The ideal candidates to achieve those mission-critical objectives comprise the top 5% – 10% of the workforce. Most of these potential candidates are already employed in leading organisations and have to be identified using industry networks and a variety of specialised search techniques.


Aviant Corp’s Executive Search provides a rigorous process to research and identify the most powerful senior management solutions. In a fully consultative process, we take care to understand your culture, organisation and candidate requirements. We then use this insight to leverage our global network of industry advisers as well as our extensive candidate database, to provide you with only the most relevant candidates for the key positions in your organisation.


The Executive Search process is best suited to senior leadership positions such as;


  • CEOs & Presidents
  • Senior & Regional Directors
  • Vice Presidents
  • Senior Corporate & Regional Roles
  • Hotel Development & Owners’ Representatives
  • General Managers & Directors

How it works


Being a highly intensive and detailed process, Executive Search assignments take approximately three months to complete, although this varies depending on the role and organisational requirements.
