Fees & Deliverable Models
Classic retained search model (3 installments) with clear deliverables @ 30% of first year package or fixed fee based on 100 day model.
Legacy model, retained with four instalments paid over 12 months; engagement fee, shortlist fee, completion fee and impact fee (12 months after start date) this allows us ensure the placements get performant asap!
Succession mapping/competitive benchmarking model, unsure what talent is in the market as you plan your business needs we offer a research plus placement model allowing you gain insight and market knowledge regarding your space - gives you the comfort and knowledge what the talent landscape looks like when you may have an internal candidate to compare against.
Build your own model, we are always conscious of clients particular moments of evolution and always keep an open mind to discuss building a tailor made model for their special needs! From two instalments fixed fee, to incredibly tight timescales, to extended guarantees - its important to but it all out there to ensure we can hit all your pressure points and eliminate any pain!
I always believe in ensuring that both the client and I are confident when stepping into a search process that we share matching expectations on what the ideal candidate looks like.
To help facilitate this I prefer to use a ten day bench-marking process whereby we get to explore the market before engaging in a challenging search process.
This allows us to engage and go once we are satisfied about the depth of talent in the market or cool off the search before time and fees are wasted in the case of narrow or challenging talent pools.
This is particularly useful in start-up searches, business transformation searches or when the market place is less known.
