WHAT ARE THE TOP 3 RECRUITMENT SERVICES WHICH YOU PROVIDE?
Retained Executive Search
We come from an executive search background – a necessary training for mapping, targeting and discreetly approaching fast track high performing sales executives in niche markets.
This approach has served our VC/investor clients well who seek competitor and market intelligence in addition to A Player Candidates with niche I.T. and business sector experience or for more established I.T. brands entering new territories across Europe.
Contingent/no cure, no pay
While this is more common in the U.S. than continental Europe, we do provide this service when appropriate i.e. depending upon the niche market and client proposition.
As we track talent in key I.T. markets, this service allows us to provide an experienced sales candidate who has decided to look for a new opportunity e.g. as a result of a company sale/ merger etc.
Some of our high engagement relationships and retained customers commenced with a ‘no cure, no pay’ service.
The ‘retingency’ fee model, a midway point between retained and contingency as the name suggests, has become more popular in recent years.
Rather than the standard search fee model of retainer, short list and placement fees paid in three equal tranches, a retingency project allows for what we term a lower ‘engagement fee’ in advance providing a level of commitment and funding of research followed by the majority paid only on placement.
