Recruitment Terms of Engagement
IRES protects clients interests by beginning each search on a solid, firm, principled foundation that minimizes conflict while allowing sufficient incentive to professionally focus on each search so as to see it through to completion within the anticipated time frame.
Retained Executive Search
All executive recruiting assignments are conducted on a retained search fee structure. Our retainer arrangement provides you with the highest priority service, routine progress reports, around the clock dedication of your executive search team regardless of time zones, and a complete suite of metrics and accountability reports along with detailed, individual candidate assessments.
A retained search assignment requires one third engagement payment to initiate the search, one third upon receipt of a candidate short list and first interviews, and final third upon hire.
Our process encourages an inclusive approach where your lead human resource officer, decision-making managers, and IRES’ senior recruiter work as a team for the duration of the project.
Contact us for more information on our retained executive search suite of services.
Modified Retained (hybrid retainer)
An IRES original concept. The Modified Retainer blends components of contingency and retained search payment structure, while eliminating much of the time-consuming production of metrics and reports allowing for a smaller engagement entry fee, while concentrating efforts on the candidate slate development process.
