WHY RETAINED SEARCH?

The success rate for contingency searches is less than 32%. Retained searches, in contrast, deliver successful candidates over 90% of the time.

I believe so passionately in the use of the retained search process for key roles in my clients’ organizations. I wish everyone understood the vast difference between the retained and contingency search models. Each model has a different place in recruiting and can be used effectively. However when our clients call us, it’s because they need a position filled quickly — and with the very best candidates in the market, not just the easy-to-find candidates out there.

It’s not just the fee structure that is different. Our entire approach and process is different. – MaryJeanne Scott

We work on a small number of searches to give you all of our attention

Retained search firms work consultatively for a select number of companies to ensure an exceptionally thorough recruiting process with a high degree of success. Because contingency firms are transactional, they must work on a much larger number of searches. They have less time to spend screening their candidates and may represent the same candidates for multiple positions.

Retained search firms provide you with qualified, meticulously screened candidates who are interested in your company and your opening.

We are obligated to fill your position
