About EBC

Ethos BeathChapman (EBC) is a global group of executive search experts in Australia, Asia and EMEA, with a broader network beyond. We connect exceptional people to exceptional companies. In Asia, our multidisciplinary expertise covers specialised functions across Banking & Financial Services, Accounting & Finance, Technology, Legal & Compliance, Insurance, Industrial, Life Science, Supply Chain and Procurement, Consumer & Healthcare recruitment markets, among others. Part of Will, EBC has ten offices worldwide in Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, China, Philippines, Netherlands and the UK.

The Role:

As a Director or Senior Director at EBC, you will be in an exceptional role unlike elsewhere: being a Director within the EBC family is to hold a truly executive level position. Whether managing a team (Practice Leadership) or developing your ‘owned’ market remit (Market Leadership), you will hold massive responsibility to directly resonate and evolve EBCs DNA, ways of working and deliver both personal, team and company-wide consistently exceptional performance.

At full Directorship level, some of your main deliverables include but are not limited to:

  • Following a Plan - alongside senior management, design and deliver upon strategic business plans including components such as revenue and profit growth, client strategy and business mix, and so forth.

  • Leading your Team and Influencing – here at EBC we don’t look for managers, we look for inspiring leaders. Lead from the front with EBC DNA, behaviours and performance by plunging yourself into our progressive ways of working, learning our AI technology, state-of-the-art cloud-based CRM platform and engaging heavily with our cutting edge talent engagement, marketing, data analysis and research functions that set EBC uniquely apart to take already strong performers to exceptional performance levels. Fixatedly look at ways to develop your team’s skill-sets, abilities, ways of working and ultimately, their outcomes. For Market Leaders not directly managing, assist where required to help build wider abilities in the business, mentor where appropriate and drive business development activities across related consultants.

  • Knowing your Clients – hold macro level account management duties for key clients as well as micro level personal business development where necessary. Mentor your team to maintain, create and develop client relationships, as well as be able to ‘go to market’ with innovative solutions.

  • Following your Entrepreneurial Ideas and Passions – where required, contribute to our digital transformation strategy internally and press wider scalability initiatives. Never let yourself or EBC become stagnant. Become a forward-thinking systems expert and get yourself ahead-of-the-curve with latest methodologies, ways of recruiting and headhunting. See the chance to take on extra responsibility as opportunities to develop yourself, learn new skills, become more able and impact the business.

Experience and Qualifications:

At executive level, you will have at least 10-12 years of experience, the most recent operating in similar high impact roles.

You must be able to demonstrate advanced leadership and fee generation abilities within a particular market, as well as be able to speak fluidly and passionately about the world of recruitment, headhunting and most importantly, the opportunities and key current day levers therein.

EBC endeavors to always perform at the highest levels whilst being agile and mature enough to operate differently. This must be a shared philosophy that speaks to your entrepreneurial mindset. Personality traits such as high passion for market expertise, outstanding work ethics, collaborative nature and exceptional execution are also a must.

Our Culture:

A career with EBC revolves on several key principles. Firstly, joining a mature, high performing group of experts requires people with a strong strategic, highly focused and collaborative approach both internally and across all clients and candidates. Secondly, our commitment to new ways of working and enablement, data-driven decision-making and AI technology is not just held by upper management but is lived and breathed throughout the organisation. We aim for all new joiners to hold good passion and commitment to innovate, share new ideas and work in forward thinking ways like these. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, we are a boutique who values internal relationships as much as external. Being persistent in delivering a world-class service and interactions across colleagues, clients and candidates alike is paramount.

Throughout your journey, we are committed to your success. On hand you will always have the high powered and finessed support – not just from the experienced mentors on your team at your doorstep, but also the supporting technology, our lead network and our best-in class enablement support function.
