Headhunters share tricks of the trade


What are non-executive recruiters looking for in a board candidate? What do they want to know about you? And how does your ‘pitch’ really come across?


These were just some of the questions up for discussion at our recent Meet the Headhunters WOBChat online event.

WOBChat is an interactive fortnightly MEMBER ONLY online session giving participants the chance to meet, network, share and learn in a facilitated and friendly online environment.

Just under 90 WOB members logged on for the interactive session with guest headhunters Vanessa Jolly and Jeremy Wurm, who shared an insight into their work and what they are seeing in the market currently.

Jeremy and Vanessa also both spoke strongly about the importance of having a targeted board CV and a strong LinkedIn profile to be noticed by a search firm. 

WOB offers the following webinars and webcasts If you need assistance in these areas:

  • Board CV Workshop | 31 August - 9 am – 11.30 am

  • LinkedIn Series Webcasts: Karen Tisdell, LinkedIn Profile Writer, Designer & Trainer shares her expert tips to make sure you are in charge of your story and how it is presented on the world's premier professional networking platform.

We're running another Meet the Headhunters

As the recent Meet the Headhunters event had so much interest, WOB is running another Meet the Headhunters webinar on 22 September where we will discuss:

  •  The search process: What’s in demand; is it women? Is it particular skills?

  •  Tips for candidates wanting to be known by their firm

  •  Advice to a candidate that makes it to interview and beyond
