Executive Search Options

Retained Search
For difficult positions, the client has determined that a fee will need to be paid to successfully fill the role. Retained searches are best used when the client needs confidentiality such as an incumbent that needs to be replaced or during a restructuring period or with high visibility.

Contained Search
This model is most frequently used when a position will require the full resources of the HRD  Recruiting and Research team but does not entail the degree of confidentiality and/or targeted approach of Retained Search. A portion of the fee is paid to mobilize the full resources of the HRD team.


Exclusive Contingency
For difficult to fill positions where the client is certain a fee will need to be paid. Often clients want to take an active part in managing the search and have the confidence that HRD can complete the assignment.
