Opportunity: Westwood has experienced significant growth since its inception 8 years ago, both in terms of the number of recruiters employed and the number of clients/engagements served.  As a result, there is a distinct need to expand the capabilities of our existing Research function.  At Westwood, the Research group is a critical part of the team and is responsible for providing support to the recruiters with information essential to the completion of the search or consulting effort. More specifically, Research at Westwood is responsible for the execution of candidate identification, organizational mapping, competitive intelligence and market analysis.  As such, the Research group plays an active role in developing and broadening the knowledge base of the firm.  This hire will be an integral part of the broader Research team.
