McDermott + Bull Executive Search seeks to continue its aggressive growth by recruiting experienced search professionals who desire to achieve exceptional results – personally, professionally and financially. We value people with the right set of skills, the motivation to succeed, and the ability and desire to become a well-respected, trusted advisor to CEOs and senior executives as a professional search consultant.
LOCATION: We are expanding and are looking for MD’s to join us across the US.
SCOPE OF RESPONSIBILITY
McDermott + Bull offers its Managing Directors the opportunity to develop their own client list and practice, with the help of the company’s robust resources, executive coaching, and strategic support. Our Managing Directors spend most of their time developing and improving client relationships, and they are able to utilize the McDermott + Bull research and recruiting team to assist in conducting the initial candidate identification and screening process. Contrary to many executive search firms, McDermott + Bull believes that the process of identifying candidates can be streamlined by utilizing a research and recruiting team that focuses on this part of the process, leaving the Managing Director with more time to project manage their search assignments, work with final candidates, and assist their clients in building out their executive teams. We fully believe that the best-performing companies are made up of individuals that not only bring the right skills and experience, but also the right cultural compatibility.
