Contingency or Exclusive
Contingent Recruitment Engagement means Sol Executives, LLC is competing on the Search with other agencies or the client (should the client have advertised the role on a job board or their website etc.) Sol Executives will only get paid should we successfully fill the search Position.
Exclusive Search Engagements are where Sol Executives, LLC has the Search Exclusively; but still only gets paid upon successful completion of filling the Position. There are huge benefits in working this way over Contingent recruitment. This allows Sol Executives, LLC time to complete the search process most effectively and as a result the client gets a better quality hire at the end of the process. Our fee for this search is the same as that of contingent but the quality of the process is greatly enhanced.
With Exclusive Search Engagements Sol Executives, LLC can produce a client report (weekly or bi-weekly as requested) detailing exactly which candidates are being considered. We will show the stage of discussions with those candidates in process so our client can see at a glance the work underway on your behalf. A transparent, and highly accountable partnership is thus created.
