As the name suggests, this search is where the client retains the search firm to conduct the search. This includes market mapping, candidate search, selection and onboarding assistance. The search firm typically uses a team of consultants, project managers, and researchers to conduct this search. The search is commonly structured in a 3 tiered goalpost framework but can be customized to fit particular search requirements and client needs. Following these 3 goalposts the search firm invoices the client roughly 1/3 of the agreed upon rate.
Types of searches most ideal for Retained Search
• Searches for C-level or high-level stakeholders within the organization (e.g. CEO, Production Site Head, Head of Sales, Country Manager)

• Searches where partial or full market mapping is necessary in order to make a hiring decision
• Stakeholder(s) need full visibility and trackable accountability on all aspects of the search activities and results
