Hi everyone,

Can anybody recommend a headhunter for an executive level position (specifically in IT)? Thanks.

Try to place your CV at hh.ru, and they'll come to you shortly themselves.

no they won't, not if you're looking for a job from the hidden market.

Strange, for me they do it regularly...

Ultimately it would depend on the Recruitment company. We only use HH as a last resort, if all other options to find a candidate have failed, which is fairly rare.

Yes, I'm aware of hh.ru and it can be a helpful recruiting tool. But if anyone can give me a person or agency that he/she could recommend, based on experiences of either working for or with an executive recruiter or recruitment agency, that would be very helpful. Thanks.

Three that we have dealt with in the past are below. None of the positions were IT though:-

I have experience in a moscow based recruitment agency and you're right about hh. It's better for management positions and the such but you'll want to get in touch directly with the agencies as an executive. Try Odgers Berndtson and Kelley Services as well. It's depends largely upon what is needed right now so it's probably best that you
1. contact as many different agencies as possible
2. Get in touch with HR in relevant companies.
3. try to meet other people in your sphere and at your professional level because that seems to be the real trick to getting a job in this city

Best of luck.
