What is a Retained Executive Search?
Retained Search is a type of recruitment search where a client partners with the recruiter, shortlisting the best and most qualified candidates.

In a retained search, a percentage of the agreed price is paid up-front with the remainder payable upon successful completion of the assignment. If the assignment is not completed, the payment is refunded in full. With fill rates at 85-95%, this option offers a measure of certainty and a full commitment to fill the vacancy.

Benefits of using Retained Search:

  • Placement takes Higher Priority
  • High search quality with higher success rates
  • Candidates with the exact skill set are shortlisted
  • More proactivity with a wider selection of candidates
  • Access to resources that are not available in house
  • Highly Customized Search
  • Most Vetted Candidates resulting in genuinely-qualified candidates
  • Transparent process with feedback and real-time updates
  • Quality candidates from a streamlined process
