When your search is senior enough, critical enough or unusual enough, there is simply no substitute for the commitment and dedication you will see when engaging our RetainedPlus service. If you have a search that you know will present far more difficulty than an average hard-to-fill opening, going retained gives your recruiting partner the motivation and confidence to put all of their eggs in your search's basket. When the relationship is cemented by a retainer, the level of mutual commitment allows us to go even deeper and spend even more time making sure every possible qualified candidate is uncovered, and also gives both sides the confidence to fully invest in the relationship. We're in this together.
If you're looking to hire a plain ol' Account Manager with two years of experience, RetainedPlus is not for you. Any firm that suggests a retainer for a standard role should be eliminated from your consideration set. But there are times when a higher level of service is warranted.
