What is a mandate in executive search?

Besides the general terms and conditions, the mandate agreement is a contract between the Company, which has to fill a vacancy and the executive search consultancy (contractor). The mandate agreement specifies the details of mandate outlining a.o. – based on the job description – the time lines, the search process, expenditures, contact persons, payment terms and conditions and applicable law.
