Headhunters and HR consultants in spain: The definitive list of all Headhunters, Senior Executive Search and Executive Recruitment firms in Spain (Bar

Over the last weeks, I’ve been gathering updated information on all available headhunting and executive search firms available in Spain. This list is focused mainly on Executive Recruitment and Top Level Management, meaning that the list intentionally leaves out many firms dedicated to technical or mid-low level management positions. The list includes: executive search firms in Spain, executive recruiting, headhunting in Spain, headhunters, Top management recruiting , Human Resources consultants in Spain, HR firms in Spain, and cazatalentos (the literal translation of “HeadHunter” in Spanish).

This list of Spanish recruitment companies will be very useful to people abroad trying to find a job in Spain. For each entry, I’ve researched also the way to send them your CV (either if it’s online or by e-mail). This information is detailed on my Excel File you’ll be able to find at the end of this post

This is my excel file. Here you’ll find a the same list of all available Headhunters or Executive Recruitment firms in Spain but each entry with the e-mail address where you’re supposed to send your CV.

Hola Pedro, buena recopilación. Te lo has currado y eso merece elogios para empezar.
Si aceptas alguna puntualizacíón, es normal mezclar metodologías y eso nos ocurre a muchos profesionales de los RRHH. Por ejemplo, Hay Selección hace selección por anuncio en prensa y pertenece a Ray&Berndtson, que son la otra empresa del grupo que hace búsqueda directa o headhunting. Si buscas un puesto de alta dirección, lo llevará R&B y si ves el anuncio en prensa, pues Hay Selección. Yo diría que deben pertenecer a listas distintas.
Otro ejemplo al azar: los especializados por sectores. Si trabajas en consumo o distribución, te interesa Essential Services, que son pequeños, pero llevan mucho en esto; y si te interesa la Industria Farmacéutica O la Biotecnología, entonces Eurogalenus, que también están muy especializados en eso.
Además, hay una asociación americana que se llama AESC que a los miembros les hace auditorías, recomendaciones y revisa sus acciones.
En fin, espero que te sirva, porque no todos hacen de todo y algunos grandes con mucho nombre pueden no serte los más útiles.
Saludos, Joan.

Hola Luis, muchas gracias por las puntualizaciones. Efectivamente tienes toda la razón, en esta lista no he realizado una segmentación por sectores/idustrias que ayudaría muchísimo a los lectores.
Agradezco tus aclaraciones.
Un saludo

From experience, as a foreigner living in Spain and looking for a more senior level position here, headhunters are for the most part a waste of time. I recommend networking through associations and friends, as well as researching what companies are here that you are interested in and contact them directly or via your contacts. If you still have free time, then try headhunters but don't make them your first port of call. I did when I first arrived, spending a lot of time sending them emails, registering on their websites, following up with them on the phone and from all of this I had only one interview with an actual company. The other search options I mentioned were much more fruitful.

This is a very useful list for any jobseeker abroad. Business consultancies such as this one - - are also very useful to be aware of, as they can provide support to those with in demand skills and can also offer expert advice to all clients and the successful running of business.
