Founded in 2006, NICHOLSON HEADHUNTING is a leading boutique firm in executive search, and the exclusive Alliance Partnership International affiliate in Argentina.

Located in Buenos Aires, we provide the best practices of a global search company, combined with the entrepreneurial responsiveness of a boutique firm. We serve the recruiting needs of well-known clients, working across all industries and functions. We specialize in the recruitment of C level, Senior and General Management. Over 80% of our engagements are repeated business, which is testimony to our result-driven approach, working in a proactive and trusted partnership with our clients. Our work is governed by the highest standards of quality and ethics.


Global best practices, maximizing innovations

The Alliance Partnership International provides Nicholson Headhunting with unrivalled global reach, access to an international pool of high-calibre executives, the cross-sector expertise of our consultants and the opportunity to exchange best practices and the latest innovations in executive search.

Dedication of a Partner to the process

Our personal attention set us apart. We engage ourselves in the execution of each engagement from one end to the other.

Long term partnership

We elevate executive search from a transactional relationship to a long-term alliance, partnering with our clients to understand the hidden opportunities and challenges of their business.

Unbeatable equation Cost/Quality

We provide the same processes and methodologies used by the most recognised multinational Headhunting firms, but we are more flexible, and our fees are 25-30% lower than the rates applied by them. Thus the equation cost/quality is superior versus other search consultants.
