Service Headhunting

Challenging recruitment

Headhunting is the perfect service for you when you are looking for an efficient recruitment service and the profile you need is exceptionally competitive, challenging or the number of specialists is limited. Headhunting refers to the process of identifying the employees with the competence that corresponds to our customer’s open position, contacting the carefully chosen individuals and mapping their interest towards the open position.

Headhunting is always implemented in a high-quality and thorough manner, respecting our customer’s brand and the candidate experience.

Benefits of Barona’s headhunting service

Business sector and labour market expertise

Barona is active in 11 business sectors, and each business sector represents the top of its field and the latest know-how. We know the competence requirements in each business sector inside and out. We are constantly constructing competence networks and know what kind of know-how our customers need.


Efficiency and quality

Headhunting is an efficient recruiting tool, as due to careful background work, we will only contact select persons who suit the company and open position. This way, we can combine the right people with the right tasks and companies in a high-quality manner.

Candidate experience and employer image

Our discussions always begin with the individual, with the candidate experience in mind: we do not assume what the individual wants to do. Instead, we map out their personal wishes, motivational factors and work-related goals in a wider manner. Not everyone is interested in a linear career path. It is more important to clarify right away whether a candidate is at all interested in considering a new job, and whether the open position and organisation are an interesting option.

Examples of headhunting services

After the discussion and initial mapping with the customer, we start the headhunting process. Due to the good labour market situation, we will contact a relatively large number of people to find one suitable. As a result of the headhunting, we will present the customer with the persons who are genuinely interested in the position and who have the best skillset for the task. After the presentation, the customer can meet and interview the people it wants to meet, just like in all our other services. Headhunting can be done traditionally as a “quiet search” and as a hybrid search. In hybrid search, we carry out the normal recruitment process alongside headhunting, and we can direct the headhunted people to read more about the company and job from the job ad or from a possibly created separate recruitment site.
