Place & Search
Term Used Globally

Place & Search

A service segment of the Staffing Industry that incorporates certain activities of staffing firms and executive search firms. The ‘Place’ part of the definition ‘Place & Search’ refers to the bringing together of a job seeker and a prospective employer by a third party staffing firm for the purpose of effecting a traditional employment relationship, for a fee. Also refers to the process of arranging such a relationship. This term is often substituted by the terms ‘direct hire’ (in the US) and ‘permanent placement’ (elsewhere). The ‘Search’ part of the definition ‘Place & Search’ refers to any one of a variety of unbundled sourcing research services provided by third-party executive search firms (sometimes referred to as ‘headhunters’) involving the identification of potential candidates at competitive firms, pre-screening, reference-checking, and other search-related research. ‘Search’ could also refer to the hiring activities undertaken directly by corporate recruiters, though our definition of ‘Place & Search’ refers exclusively to those services provided by third-parties.
