Lead5 provides our executive members with potential opportunities and verified opportunities.
The average executive search takes 150 days. Lead5 has proprietary algorithms that identify potential opportunities often before the formal search process kicks-off. Therefore, a potential opportunity represents the earliest possible window when a candidate can insert themselves into the search process. If the company decides to recruit for this type of opening, our candidates are there first.
Lead5 also identifies verified opportunities that are being actively sourced by the company. We provide key company, investor, or recruiter contacts for direct access for these opportunities. In total, Lead5 creates awareness of executive openings that for decades have been hidden and only offered to executives on a need-to-know basis.
Lead5 members have the ability to post confidential comments to opportunities such as recruiters assigned to particular search projects, whether or not a company is considering internal candidates, or other general intel related to the opportunity. Lead5 works best as an active community engaged and sharing leads and data. If you know of updated intel on a particular opportunity please post a comment, add an opportunity, or email the Lead5 team directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the Contact link on the site.
The Lead5 Recruiters section is an aggregate list of the top 50 retained executive search firms in the United States along with highly credible boutique search firms with specific expertise by industry and function. Lead5 regularly audits these recruiters for updates and additions/deletions. Each recruiter is coded by their specific area of focus across industry, function, and region. This gives Lead5 members the ability to easily discover which recruiters they should be in contact with for their particular job search.
