Retained Selection

Contingency Recruitment can be highly effective when the appropriate solution requires recruiting from a selection of CVs of pre-qualified, high quality, active candidates.

A more proactive approach is Retained Selection, when there is a need to identify and considerably widen the search by exploring the vast, hidden, inactive candidate pool.

Rather than a full Executive Search, which can be considered prohibitively expensive or unfeasible, Retained Selection works especially well when the timing is crucial or niche skillsets are essential for a role.

Working closely with you, against agreed objectives, timeframes and milestones, we dedicate significant time and resources to generate brand new candidates specifically for your role. We target, engage and interview them, and ultimately deliver an exclusive shortlist of candidates typically only considering your role, together with our detailed interview notes. As this process can be cross-border, we harness modern technology and utilise video interviewing, thus removing the need for hefty travel costs that often accompany Executive Search.

This service line constitutes a significant proportion of our client instructions, from repeat clients who have complete trust in our capabilities and rely on us to solve their recruitment challenges time and time again.
