January 24, 2023 – 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. Executive search consortium Talentor International recently expanded its presence in Australia with the addition of Carrington Associates. Led by managing partner Sachin Khisti, Carrington Associates recruits senior leaders for technology, operations, and senior executives roles. The firm’s clients are large commercial businesses that are mostly in the branches of IT services, telecommunication, manufacturing, and financial services. Carrington Associates offers a six-month guarantee period for senior placements.
When discussing why Mr. Khisti decided to join the Talentor network he said: “I want to develop and grow my recruitment, especially in the field of senior executive search, and the Talentor network was recommended to me by a partner from India.”
“My interactions with the Talentor team are very positive and I feel the network will add value to my business,” said Mr. Khisti. “It’s a great way to get an insight into local perspectives on a global map. The world is flat and nothing is more valuable than learning, sharing, and mentoring aspects in a global setting in today’s time. Money can’t buy that.”
Ranked fifth in the Index of Economic Freedom, Australia is the world’s 14th largest economy. Australia was the only advanced economy not to experience a recession due to the global financial downturn in 2008–2009. The powerhouse mining and financial services industries dominate the Australian Stock Exchange, just as they do the Australian economy.
Founded in 2003, Talentor’s client base spans a range of sectors including digital, IT, medtech, fintech, financial services, and consumer goods. The organization focuses on executive search on an international level, leveraging the local know-how of its partners.
New Member Firm
Talentor recently added South Africa People Power Placement (P3). Operating since 1990, the firm is led by managing partner and founder Auguste Coetzer. Over the years, Ms. Coetzer has gained credibility as an executive search recruiter in terms of delivery, cross-cultural sensitivity, and being a top biller.
