The chemicals industry is increasingly competitive when it comes to finding executive members of staff.
And, if you want to promote growth and success in your chemicals business, it’s absolutely essential that you have experienced, talented and knowledgeable individuals at the helm.
So, if you’re looking to bring in new C-level executives, or senior management professionals into your business, you need to have the assurance that you have every necessary process in place to find the very best talent.
As such, you might be considering bringing in a specialist chemical executive search consultant.
When hiring someone for any service, it’s always worth considering the cost vs the reward.
To help you understand whether you need specialist chemical recruiters to support your search for the top-level position in your business, we’ve outlined everything you need to know before you decide.
What do manufacturing recruitment agencies do?
The key thing to consider here is the difference between a generic recruiter, and a specific chemical industry recruitment specialist.
An executive search consultant who specialises in this area will have an in-depth knowledge of the various sectors that make up this constantly growing area of industry, and will therefore have a strong understanding of the type of person you’ll need for your business.
What’s more, as they are already familiar with, and embedded in the chemical industry, they’ll be able to tap into their network of contacts, to find the individual with the experience and skill that best suits your needs.
Compared to a generic recruiter, it’s a far more targeted and successful approach, which is more likely to bring you the most rewarding outcome, which brings a huge amount of reassurance when recruiting to these high-level roles in the chemical industry.
In recent years specialised chemical recruiters have become an increasingly valuable asset, helping to place individuals that can have a transformational impact. Here at SPS International, we’ve worked in this sector for years and have successfully placed leaders in a range of organisations.

What are the benefits of using a manufacturing management recruiter?
Finding a high-level candidate for a senior position in your chemical manufacturing organisation can be a challenge. Especially when, at this level, the criteria, competencies and experience for the right candidate is likely to be very specific.
The likelihood of advertising for this type of role and ending up with the perfect CV on your desk is quite small.
So, let’s take a closer look at the benefits of using a specialist chemical recruitment agency to support this process.
Access to a Network of Candidates within the Sector
Any reliable chemical executive search consultant will have a pre-established network of individuals within the sector, who they can call on to help support the recruitment process. They’ll have contacts who can be used to locate and identify candidates with the exact experience that will suit roles in your organisation.
What’s more, as they’ve built strong relationships with a range of individuals within these areas, they will be in a position to approach individuals who might not necessarily be looking for a new role, and who therefore would be unlikely to respond to a job advertisement.
Expertise and Industry Knowledge
When looking to hire at an executive level, an individual with specific industry knowledge and experience within a similar role is more likely to hit the ground running, have a good understanding of how your organisation works and drive growth. A good executive search consultant knows this, and will have similar industry knowledge to be able to search out these very specific individuals.
This in-depth know-how can help them identify the best candidates for the job and provide valuable insights and advice to organisations throughout the hiring process.
Time and Cost Savings
While there is a price tag attached to hiring anyone for a service, you can actually end up saving money and time when hiring an executive search consultant.
They can create job descriptions, identify potential candidates, conduct initial screenings, and coordinate interviews, which can save you significant time and resources.
What’s more, you’ll have the assurance that the rigorous recruitment processes used will help to avoid a bad hire, which comes with very costly financial implications too.
Match Your Competitors
If you’re looking to drive growth and success in your business, it’s absolutely key you have people who have the capabilities and skill to do that in your senior management team. So, if you do have a vacancy, it’s key to ensure you fill it with the right person, in order to keep up with your competitors.
And, as we’ve seen in recent years, more and more organisations in the chemicals industry are calling on executive search experts, like the team at SPS International, in order to place highly qualified individuals into their organisations.
