You only pay us if you hire one of our candidates. Because contingent search allows you to work with other firms, we do not provide exclusive services. When we find a candidate that matches your profile, we will present them for consideration.
Contingency searches are ideal for low to mid-level managers and personnel. Some of the benefits of a contingency search include no upfront financial commitment and the flexibility to hire outside Alberts Executive Search from any source you choose.
Some of the drawbacks include no performance guarantee, no candidate exclusivity (candidates are presented to other contingent clients simultaneously), and a limited candidate guarantee.
Our most popular option with a 98% success rate, a dedicated search represents a specific and devoted commitment from Alberts Executive Search to present a minimum of three to five in-profile candidates typically within 30 days from beginning the search.
You receive a dedicated search team that performs original research, makes dedicated recruiting calls on your behalf and conducts full behavioral and chronological interviews with each candidate prior to presentation. Each candidate is recruited specifically for the search, and each candidate is presented exclusively to the client, meaning Alberts Executive Search never sends a dedicated candidate to two clients at once. Alberts Executive Search requires an exclusive agreement to begin a dedicated search and a final success fee is due at its conclusion.
Dedicated search is ideal for Mid-Level Management openings, team lift-outs and critical time to fill roles. Additional benefits include a performance guarantee to present in-profile candidates within a certain period of time, a full 90-day replacement guarantee, a dedicated project team and weekly update calls upon request.
A retained search represents a total commitment from Alberts Executive Search to present a minimum of five to eight in-profile candidates typically within 60 days of beginning the search, and ultimately as many candidates as required until the role is filled with the perfect fit.
We work closely with our clients to develop and organize a turnkey hiring strategy. This includes the development of a formal job description, organizing and executing a confidential recruitment campaign, conducting full behavioral and chronological interviews and screening and assessing all candidates in a consistent fashion.
Alberts Executive Search meets each candidate in person, and/or attends client interviews to facilitate the process at our clients’ request. Each candidate is recruited specifically for the search, and each candidate is presented exclusively to the client. We also check professional references and coordinate credit and criminal background checks as well as a DiSC Personality Assessment. Alberts Executive Search requires an engagement fee to start the search and a success fee at the completion of each retained search.
Retained search is best for SVP, EVP and C-Level roles. The main benefits of a retained search include a total commitment from Alberts Executive Search to fill each search, in-person interviewing and interview facilitation and thorough background checking, meanwhile saving you time and money.
