Why Female Executive Search?

How do businesses and female leaders benefit from working with us?

Female leaders advancing global business

Companies with greater gender equality at a senior level are proven to be more profitable.

Yet despite the indisputable evidence that female leaders build better businesses, there is still a need for female voices to be heard.

That’s why CEO Worldwide, experts in international executive recruitment, created Female Executive Search – to connect the very best C-level female candidates with the global businesses that value female leaders.

Every executive in our community is certified against stringent criteria by CEO Worldwide for their experience and leadership qualities.

CEO Worldwide – challenging recruitment industry norms

CEO Worldwide was started in 2001 to challenge the lengthy and expensive process of recruiting international executives.

Frustrated with commission-based fees and inflexible contract terms, the team committed to:

  • Fixed recruitment fees, payable on successful placement - no surprises, finders’ fees or percentage commissions based on candidate salary
  • Flexible contract terms – contract, interim or permanent, to suit each client
  • A selection of suitable candidates supplied to clients within 10 days
  • A 100%, 12-month replacement guarantee

Since 2001, CEO Worldwide has gained a reputation for its ability to match candidates to urgent requirements, alongside its cross-border placement expertise. Its Investors on Demand service can also connect businesses with investment, when it is needed most.

In 2018, CEO Worldwide was named in Forbes' list of the best 250 US executive recruitment firms.

With over 17,000 certified executives on its global iCEO™ database, including hundreds of women CEO and female leaders, CEO Worldwide is uniquely placed to source the very best candidates for your executive position.
