For Animal Health companies and organizations looking to hire top talent in the employment marketplace, Animal Health executive search services are an excellent option for identifying, recruiting, and hiring the very best candidates. No matter the economic conditions, top talent is always in demand. Think of it this way:

  • During recessionary or down economic times, the number of top candidates in the market are the same. There are not fewer top candidates just because there is a recession.
  • During down economic times, top talent is less likely to explore other employment opportunities for two reasons. First, their current employers are doing everything they can to keep these professionals, and second, these professionals are more likely to “hunker down” and not explore other opportunities.
  • During good economic times, top candidates have multiple employment opportunities from which to choose, and as a result it is more difficult to get their attention and also keep their attention.

As a result, Animal Health companies must be proactive in their efforts to find and identify the best professionals for their open positions. However, finding them is only the beginning of the process. They must also actively recruit these professionals to consider both their opportunity and their organization. However, a challenge arises when companies do not possess the time, resources, or the expertise necessary to fill their important, high-level positions with the type of candidates they want to hire.

This is where Animal Health executive search services of The VET Recruiter can help. The VET Recruiter can give you a competitive advantage over other Animal Health employers in the marketplace that are also trying to hire top talent to meet their staffing needs.

We strive to open lines of communication between employers and job candidates throughout every step of the Animal Health executive search process. That’s because we know how important time is during the process. The more quickly that all parties can communicate, the more quickly that an employer can find the right candidate, engage that candidate, and ultimately, hire that candidate as an employee.



While time is certainly important, we at The VET Recruiter also believe that timing is also critical. Since that is the case, we make it a top priority to keep our clients informed throughout the process. We recognize that communicating the correct information is only the beginning. The information must also be communicated in a timely fashion. That way, the communication benefits everyone involved, and it becomes a win-win situation for all parties.

  • Interview the hiring manager for clarification of needs.
  • Research to locate the logical talent pool.
  • Check our existing databases for leads.
  • Source to narrow our research results.
  • Qualify candidates by initial telephone interview against the necessary job essentials.
  • Sift the potential finalists from the wishful thinkers, window shoppers, tire kickers, and the underqualified.
  • Perform in-depth interviews with potential finalists.
  • Conduct reference checks, if requested by the client. (Most clients prefer to perform their own reference checks.)
  • Arrange and coordinate the interview schedule.
  • Prepare and counsel nominees for interviews by spelling out employer needs, culture, organizational fit, hiring authority, personality, etc.
  • Debrief candidates after each interview, answering questions, etc.
  • Debrief client hiring authority after each interview, assessing strengths, weaknesses, incompatibilities, etc.
