This allows them to serve as trusted advisors and secure best-in-class talent quickly that can solve immediate business challenges for our clients.

Our contract staffing services also offer the ability to hire on contractors full-time after a certain contract period is completed, allowing you to retain the institutional knowledge the consultant acquires during the assignment.

Retained Services

In addition to contingency searches, we also offer specialized, retained services which provide more personalized attention and highly customizable search strategies. We supply varying levels of reporting depending on your preference, with progress updates that are even more comprehensive than our thorough contingency services.

Frequently used for high-level executive searches where a swift timetable and detailed reports are paramount, our process from search initiation to accepted offer can be completed in as little as six weeks.
