WHAT IS A CONTINGENT SEARCH?
A contingent search is a professional recruiting service where a company does not pay a fee unless they hire a candidate represented by the recruiting firm.

WHAT IS THE FEE?

Why not try to fill the position on my own?
WHY NOT TRY TO FILL THE POSITION ON MY OWN?
Many companies do not have internal recruiting departments and can use online recruiting tools like Indeed, LinkedIn and Zip Recruiter at a fraction of the cost. These tools are very powerful and can certainly prove successful, however, it’s important to keep in mind they only target candidates who are actively seeking a new job. Through decades of experience, we have found a majority of placed candidates are passive job seekers. Using a trusted recruiter taps into a completely different inventory of candidates.

Will I receive a high level of service even if I don’t pay until I hire a candidate?
WILL I RECEIVE A HIGH LEVEL OF SERVICE EVEN IF I DON’T PAY UNTIL I HIRE A CANDIDATE?
The contingent recruiting service is performed by a recruitment company for free until the day a candidate represented by them takes a position with their client.
Our recruiting team understands the challenges of working on this basis and may also compete with the client’s internal HR department, advertising, direct applicants and one or more other recruitment companies.
These challenges motivate our recruiting team to do their best work, to represent the best candidate or candidates and to do so faster than the other channels.
As an example, if a vacancy is hard to fill, there will likely be only a few candidates qualified for the position. Providing a solution before everyone else is vital for a successful “no win, no fee” recruiter.
A successful placement is based on experience, network, and resources of the recruiting company. Our experienced team and recruiting process ensures a quality candidate, and a consistently high level of service.
