Common Questions about Headhunters

Do headhunters get a cut of your salary?

A common misconception is that headhunters get a part of your salary. In fact, it’s actually the company that pay that additional fee directly to the headhunter. So, no it doesn’t come out of your salary.

Is it worth it to pay a headhunter?

Many large companies still find that it’s worth paying a headhunter to do the hard work for them. They typically charge around 25-30% of the employee’s annual salary, which makes it a worthwhile cost to eliminate the headache of the hiring process.

What’s the difference between a headhunter and a recruiter?

Headhunters typically hire for managerial and executive positions on behalf of a company, whilst recruiters may help to find employees at all levels of a company.

Can I use a headhunter to find a job?

Headhunters work as a separate entity from a company and hire on behalf of them as a third party. Though, it is possible to sometimes approach a headhunter if you feel they’d be able to find you a suitable role (it can be a win-win for everyone in this case).
