Unlike traditional recruiting companies we will assist you through the recruiting process, as well as take an active and advisory role during candidate selection, striving to ensure the long term success of the placement.
Retained Search Services
A Retained Recruiting model is preferable in cases where a company has a pressing need for a key position to be filled within a small time frame or in many cases confidentially. The positions filled under this arrangement are normally of strategic importance to the organization and quite often are for leadership positions. For this type of need, the advantages of a retained search are significant. A Retained recruiting assignment is given priority status in terms of the level of consulting talent assigned to the search and the time and resources that are dedicated to the project. A retained search will always involve the direct oversight of a Partner and in many cases will be conducted by a Partner. Candidate profiling and testing is offered as a complimentary service for all retained recruiting assignments.
The fees for a retained search are typically higher than in contingency assignments, given the level of energy and resources that a search firm invests in sourcing quality candidates. Retained Search fees are normally paid by the client over three set time periods (beginning of the search, at 45 days and then again at 90 days) as previously established milestones are met.
Contingency Search Services
Another popular option is a Contingency recruiting approach. By utilizing The River Group’s Contingency recruiting services a fee is not due until we have successfully completed the search and the prevailing candidate has begun work. One of the benefits of a contingency recruiting model is the flexibility in which the fee agreement can be structured. We will consider your requirements, timelines, goals for the position, company culture, etc. and develop a fee arrangement that will meet your needs.
We believe our role is to supplement your search efforts and we feel this approach has contributed to the strong relationships we have with our client’s HR organizations.Our value is in taking the “tough to fill” positions off your plate and enabling your HR team to improve efficiencies by focusing on other staffing projects that are critical to the success of the company.
