What is Retained Recruitment?

"Retained recruitment" has emerged as a popular buzz term in the field of headhunting. Typically, with other agencies this service involves a higher fee However, we have a different approach. In any other industry, your commitment would be rewarded with a discount, which is why our retained service is discounted to actually be cheaper than our standard recruitment. 

Recruiters often boast about their retention rates, citing figures around 96%. While these statistics may be impressive, we take great pride in our executive retention rate, which stands at a remarkable 100%. This achievement reflects our commitment to finding the right candidates who not only meet the job requirements but also thrive in their roles for the long term.

We believe in delivering exceptional results and ensuring the utmost satisfaction of our clients. 

  1. Personalised Solution: We begin by scheduling a meeting to understand your specific requirements, timelines, and preferences. This allows us to tailor our approach and develop a customised strategy for your recruitment needs.

  2. Market Information & Salary Benchmarking: Our team can conduct research and provide you with valuable insights into the market, including salary benchmarking. This information helps ensure that your remuneration packages are competitive and attractive to potential candidates.

  3. Psychometric Assessments: We collaborate with trusted providers to offer psychometric assessments as part of our recruitment process. These assessments provide valuable insights into candidates' aptitudes, personalities, and suitability for the role, enhancing the quality of our candidate selection.

  4. Interview Questions and Guidance: We can assist you in developing effective interview questions and provide guidance on the interview process. Our expertise helps ensure that your interviews are structured, comprehensive, and focused on assessing the most critical aspects of the candidates' qualifications.

  5. Discreet Headhunting: With our extensive network and industry connections, we can discreetly reach out to potential candidates who may not be actively seeking opportunities. This enables us to identify exceptional talent while maintaining confidentiality for both candidates and clients.

  6. Interview Attendance: If desired, we can attend interviews either in person or remotely. Having us present provides an additional layer of support, expertise, and objectivity during the interview process.

  7. Follow-Up Meeting: Once a candidate is selected and onboarded, we arrange a follow-up meeting involving you, the candidate, and our team. This meeting allows us to ensure a smooth transition, address any concerns or challenges, and ensure that the candidate is settling in well.
