May 24, 2019 – Executive search consultants are seeing an increase in hiring mandates from around the world. To meet demand, they continue to develop new practices, hire new recruiters and open new locations. Global recruiting consortiums, meanwhile, are taking advantage of a resurgence in certain geographic areas.
Ms. Tao’s focus is the chemical industry. Prior to joining ZW HR Consulting, she was a consultant with Career International. Before that she gained executive search experience with Research Consulting.
Qingdao is located on the coast of the Yellow Sea in the western Pacific Ocean. It is part of the Shandong Province, which has seen substantial change in its economic landscape in recent years.
“The Qingdao office will strive to integrate the resource advantages of the headquarters and offices all over the country, seize opportunities, focus on the whole country and face the world,” said Ms. Tao.
ZW HR Consulting provides recruitment solutions focused on mid-senior level professionals. Originally founded in Shanghai in 1998, ZW HR has since grown to have 12 offices across Asia and over 200 employees. In 2012, ZW HR Consulting became the exclusive member of InterSearch Worldwide.
InterSearch China is the Chinese branch of InterSearch Worldwide, a global alliance of executive search companies. Established in 1989, the organization has close to 90 offices in 50 countries.
Recruiter Rankings: Global 30
This year Hunt Scanlon Media reviewed an exhaustive list of global recruiting providers and culled it down to the top 30 global talent providers that now dominate the recruiting business worldwide.
Just recently, InterSearch Norway named Ingvild Myhre, an experienced board and technology leader, as its new chairwoman. “Ms. Myhre has extensive boardroom level experience,” said Trond Hess, CEO of InterSearch Norway. “She has also held several top-level executive positions with large, high-profiled Norwegian technology companies. That is a perfect match for us.”
Ms. Myhre is a partner with consulting firm Agera Norge. She said she is looking forward to her new position. “Being able to contribute to positioning our best men and women for top-level executive positions is something I find both important and exciting. Diversity within senior executive committees and boardrooms is equally an aspect I believe will be of great importance going forward.”
