Contained Search

A “contained” search represents a hybrid blend of a traditional contingency search (total fee collected only after placement of qualified candidate) and a retained search (guaranteed fee collected up front or in stages based upon pre-determined time frames or deliverables).

{Contingency + Retained = Contained}

The standard fee in Contained Search is based on the total annual expected compensation for the position and comes with a Full Replacement Guarantee and payments are billable in 2 installments. The first payment is a deposit to initiate the search and the final remaining balance payment is billable upon the candidate’s start date.
