Jobs in Africa | What is a Headhunter?

Working in the Africa Jobs space, we often come across situations when calling a potential candidate, where, after introducing ourselves as a “Headhunter”, receiving a confused (or fearful, depending on the definition they have in their mind) response from the Candidate, asking “What’s that”? The cultural diversity of each country in Africa is so phenomenal that we take it for granted that when speaking to someone in English, that they will understand the meaning of the titles we use locally.

What is a Headhunter? (Using CA Global Africa Recruitment as an example)

A Headhunter is a term informally referring to Recruiters or Executive Search Consultants. Headhunters in Africa have come to play a more strategic role for finding the right caliber of staff for companies. Headhunters manage both clients and candidates. If you’re in the market for a new job in Africa (candidate), or if you’re in the market for a top class candidate in Africa, to start at your company (client) a Headhunter will have all the resources at hand to get the right job for you or the right candidate for your company!

Basically, a Headhunter will streamline the process for you. They do research on the Africa Jobs market and will also have access to client staffing details, intricate knowledge of where in Africa; companies are expanding to as well as information about what companies in Africa have skills shortages, etc.


Here’s an example to put you into perspective: A CEO plans to resign from their company and wants to look at job opportunities without anyone knowing. They approach their Headhunter who then tells the CEO about a CEO job in Africa, perhaps Zambia. The CEO thinks the job opportunity in Zambia sounds interesting and he has all the skills so wants the Headhunter to present his profile to the company. The Headhunter then calls the client to highlight the CEO’s skills and discuss interview times.

Unless you have a relationship with all the decision-makers in your sector, like a Headhunter does, you will not be able to market yourself better than what a Headhunter can.

Here are some of the top Headhunters in Africa:
