The Execu|Search Group – Why Work For Us?

The Execu|Search Group was founded in 1985 as a recruitment firm focused on serving accounting firms, boutique hedge funds, and private equity funds. Over time, our firm has evolved into a full-service Recruitment, Temporary Staffing, and Workforce Management Solutions firm integrating a broad range of industries. We’re proud to say that we’ve helped over 27,000 companies find talent and have connected over 62,000 people with new jobs.

In addition to earning a spot on the Inc. 5000, we’ve also been named to Staffing Industry Analysts' lists of Fastest Growing Staffing Firms and Largest Staffing Firms in the U.S. due to our expanding roster of staff and offices across the east coast. Although we’ve become one of the largest privately-owned recruitment and staffing firms, the entrepreneurial environment we established back in 1985 is still a major facet of our culture today. It allows us to provide truly customized services to all of our clients and candidates while offering professional growth opportunities for each of our employees.

We believe in rewarding hard work through financial and professional growth.  After starting a career with us, many employees have risen quickly through the ranks due to a strong worth ethic in many of our promotion levels.

Meet our leadership team here!

From monthly jean days and company softball, dodgeball and basketball teams, to ping pong tournaments in our NYC rec room, charity runs/walks, and firm-wide community initiatives, Execu|Search promotes teamwork and believes in rewarding hard work.

As the driving force behind our community initiatives, staff members participate in community events, volunteer their time to a variety of causes, and make donations to a wide range of organizations. We encourage staff to get involved as volunteers and supporters of community organizations and offer all staff members an extra day off to volunteer their time.


Our company values are at the core of everything we do:

Integrity - Be ethical, honest and accountable

Flexibility - Be open to new ideas, people and opportunities

Partnership - Serve as a partner to everyone you work with

Service - Be proactive, responsive, and focus on quality service

Community - Remember the importance of supporting those around you

To recognize our top performers, we developed “The Chairman's Circle,” a firm-sponsored incentive program designed to:

  • Motivate and challenge our employees
  • Reward individual sales performance
  • Recognize outstanding service
  • Celebrate the successes of the firm

We provide incentives for members of our firm who demonstrate high levels of performance and service. As our way of saying “Thank you” to the employees who make it possible for us to remain a leading force in the industry, we invite selected staff members and a guest of their choice to attend a weekend getaway at a major resort, with airfare and hotel accommodations covered by the firm. This "Chairman Circle" excursion is a reward for superior service and is also an opportunity for us to reflect upon and celebrate our successes.

    Growth Opportunity, ability to earn a lot of money (base/commission), the leadership team, and the company culture.


    Expensive healthcare benefits and 401k doesn't match.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing! The leadership team genuinely cares for its staff, and their development within the organization. It's inspiring.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Execu|Search Group (New York, NY) in July 2017.


    The internal recruiter reached out to me on LinkedIn and set up a phone call with me where we discussed my background and more about the job opportunity. I was then brought in for an in person interview about a week later. I met with the recruiter first, then with the members of the team who I'd be working with. It lasted about 2 hours after which the recruiter met with me and scheduled a second round interview. For the second round I met with the director of the team and the COO, and I shadowed the team. This also lasted about 2 hours. Within the week I got a call from the recruiter offering me the position.
