From the Almanac

The term Headhunter describes a company or individual that provides employment recruiting services on behalf of the employer. Firms hire headhunters to find talent and to locate individuals who meet specific job requirements.

In the United States, the Association of Executive Search and Leadership Consultants (AESC), represents search firms who work on exclusive and retained basis.

The German equivalent to the AESC is the Bund Deutscher Unternehmensberater (BDU).
