The Trend is UP!

We are happy to report that our exclusive Recruiter Confidence Index has moved sharply to high level over the last 12 months. Now over 67% of recruiters are confident that the executive job market will be strong over the next six months (see Chart Below). As important, the number of recruiters not confident is at all- time lows, suggesting that demand for executive talent is strong across most industries. There are few pockets of weakness.

Recruiters also report that over 40% of companies are looking to add new executive jobs over the next six months and ExecuNet’s exclusive Executive Job Creation Index is at all time highs. This is a far cry from 12 months ago at the depths of the pandemic.

All said, the market shows every indication of remaining solid for the rest of the year which is a good sign for all.

We will continue to keep you posted on market trends and in July will be providing a view of the top growth markets for executive talent.

With executive talent so dear, we’d be happy to work with you to fill your positions or put you in contact with decision-makers who are hiring. Just give us a shout.
