Conduct search assignments on an exclusive, retainer contract basis only.

The search firm commits to complete the assignment professionally and to the client’s satisfaction.

Retained recruiters are paid by their clients in stage payments under contract, which are not solely dependent upon placement.

The hiring organization wants a recruiter who will make a dedicated effort on its behalf to filling the position. A retained search takes priority over all contingency searches.



Retained executive search consulting:

• It is critical to hire not just any qualified person, but the most qualified person available.

• The hiring organization wants an independent third party to thoroughly screen candidates, through extensive interviews, before finalists are presented.

• The hiring organization wants to evaluate internal candidates against who might be available outside and using the retained recruiter to put both internal and external candidates through the same process assuring both internal and external candidates are treated equally and fair; without bias.

• The hiring organization wants the retained executive to approach prospective candidates on a confidential basis.

• The hiring organization wants to establish a close working relationship with the recruiter, so that the hiring process takes into account nuances of the hiring organization's culture and issues related to the job vacancy.

• A retained consultant will never present a candidate to more than one client at a time. A contingency recruiter, on the other hand, often presents attractive candidates to as many clients as possible.
