In legal recruitment, headhunting seems to mean pitching opportunities to potential candidates before knowing anything about them. At Foxwood, we don't claim to have the "perfect" opportunity for someone based solely on their high level details.
Our process delves deep into what is important to each person individually. We take the time to understand their professional pain and professional goals so that we can match candidates with clients based on information, rather than assumptions.
Our methods have proven highly effective in the recruitment of candidates who are perhaps skittish and not actively looking for new opportunities, and our non-assumptive approach has been praised by lawyers at all levels. We regularly hear from senior partners that, in their 20-30 years in private practice, we were the first recruiters to ask them what they wanted.
While our competitors are pitching opportunities, we get to work on filling them.
