Our Fee Structure
When a company utilizes a retainer relationship with a recruiter, it is on more of a trusted partner basis. The recruiter is being hired and paid as an outside extension of a client’s internal team. With this type of arrangement, recruiters are constructing a dedicated search and process to find the right candidate. The focus is on quality and appropriateness for the position. The best interests of the client are at the forefront – where they should be. With a retained search, recruiters are anxious to get the word out about the company that has the position(s) available. They are protected from predatory competition from other recruiters because they usually have an exclusive working relationship with their clients. If you choose to go this route, a highly discounted flat-rate fee is paid up front, in full to begin the search.
All searches come with a guarantee period ranging from 60 days to 180 days (depending on the position). If any type of retainer is paid up-front and the candidate hired is not the firms referral…a full credit of all monies paid will be issued immediately which may be used Company-wide, for any position, with no expiration date.
