Exec Capital has broadened its fractional team, offering comprehensive recruitment solutions across a variety of senior management positions. This initiative builds upon the company’s introduction of fractional CEO roles in 2023, aimed at making top-tier professionals more accessible to start-ups and small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The programme’s extension now encompasses additional executive positions, such as Chief Marketing Officers (CMOs) and Chief Financial Officers (CFOs).
At the vanguard of executive recruitment, Exec Capital responds to the increasing demand for adaptable employment arrangements from both candidates and corporations.
The firm provides a bespoke hiring service, featuring an array of recruitment solutions from executive searches to specialist role headhunting. These services facilitate the appointment of executives in senior roles on a flexible, fractional basis, ranging from one to four days a week, under both short and long-term contracts. This model is particularly well-suited to businesses undergoing rapid growth or those seeking a cost-effective strategy for enhancing their executive team.
Recent studies indicate a 20% rise in the recruitment of fractional executives from 2022 to 2023, a trend that is anticipated to continue. The shift towards part-time and fractional positions is enabling executives to achieve a more satisfactory work-life balance. Fractional recruitment allows organisations to access leading talents without the risk of executive burnout.
With no requirement for a long-term commitment, fractional executives afford businesses the chance to evaluate candidates prior to making a permanent hire. Various industries are increasingly adopting fractional recruitment as a more economical method to attract top talent. It serves as a solution to fill skill gaps or provide interim coverage for absent employees.
Fractional recruitment for C-suite positions is particularly appealing to individuals transitioning between industries, enabling those from unconventional backgrounds to enhance their expertise in specific roles. Exec Capital has noted a rise in professionals moving between sectors and disciplines.
The concept of the ‘fractional executive’ is not limited to those climbing the career ladder; it also appeals to seasoned professionals in the later stages of their careers who are seeking greater flexibility and new challenges. The fractional team at Exec Capital includes experts with sector-specific knowledge, ranging from supply chain management to private equity.
