Best of 2022 – Hidden Job Market

Welcome to 2023! For over 5 years now, we have been monitoring and sharing the most valuable job ads from the Internet every week to provide you with the best job opportunities within our “Hidden Job Market” community. In 2022, we found over 3256 job ad gems from all around Europe for experienced international managers and executives!

What is the hidden job market?

The so-called “hidden job market” consists of opportunities that:

  • are difficult to find (due to how / where they were published)
  • rarely see the “light of the Internet” (“hidden away” on Intranets or closed platforms)
  • are distributed by word of mouth
  • are handled by Executive Search firms
  • come directly from companies that contact us to recommend senior candidates

Every week, our Career Angels team spends several hours going through websites and hundreds of search results from job ad platforms to source these gems – we do that, so our community doesn’t have to as it’s our mission to actively support experienced job seekers.

Summary of 2022

In 2022, we managed to publish in our closed group “HJM – Hidden Job Market for Experienced Managers in Europe” with over 6,800 members 3256 hand-picked job ad gems, including 864 fully remote opportunities!

The Hidden Job Market group

The purpose of the group is to give experienced managers and executives access to these so-called “hidden job market” and “real” job ads in Europe – with an emphasis on opportunities for English-speaking, international candidates that have minimum 10 years of experience.


We want to share hidden job market gems from a variety of sources, so we’ve teamed up with partners like:

Element: Element is, in our opinion, the best recruitment system (ATS) in Poland. As part of their Job Monit functionality, you can access the largest database of recruitment needs on the Polish market! For us, they select about 70 fresh offers for experienced managers and executives in Poland each week!

ShareHire: Share Hire is a pioneer in recruitment referral programs available online and via SMS. For several years now, they have been at the center of the digital and social media revolution in the area of attracting new employees and engaging existing ones! Every month, we select some of the most interesting job ads that are available only via their platform.
