Retained Recruitment
Why Retained Recruitment Is the Best Option For Clients Looking for Executive Level Employees

Finding a suitable candidate for a job is usually a task that many people think of as an easy one. However, in reality this process is not easy and it takes a lot of effort in search, persuasion and leverage of connections and networks so that the right CVs are being sent to the client's office. While some candidates may look suitable for a position on paper and even interview well, the question is did the client see all the "best fits" in the market?.

When a traditional contingent search (fee paid on success) is used and multiple agencies are involved there is often a competitive rush between the agencies to quickly send through any and all suitable, and not so suitable, candidates to the client in the hope to get a lucky hit. Once a shortlist is created by the client, all other agencies without candidates in the process will move on, often leaving many candidates without any feedback and the client interviewing a poorly selected selection of approximate fits made up mostly of candidates who were visible in the market, actively looking and applying to job adverts whilst the "A" list superstar employees are hard at work achieving great things for their current employer and blissfully unaware of other greater opportunities that are available for their tremendous skills. Ultimately a recruitment strategy that is not planned well and does not have the full commitment of the employer and search agency could lead to a mis-hire and more expense, in time and money, in starting the search again.

How Does A Retained Recruitment Service Help The Process Of Recruiting Employees?

A Retained recruitment service adopts a process of building a relationship between the client and recruitment company and therefore guarantees a better overlook of the marketplace - ensuring the best quality of "A" list superstar employees being identified, approached, persuaded and presented to the client. Operating on an exclusive basis, the recruitment process adopts a fully focused approach in a process that is rigorous and contains a shortlist of anything from three to ten names being presented to the client before the interviews take place. From the results that this type of recruitment brings, every company will be left with ideal five to ten candidates to choose from as the most tailor-fit and suitable profiles for the job position.
