Most of our competitors in the search industry ask for money up front and another slice for producing a shortlist. We’ve never been comfortable with this approach on the basis that we wouldn’t pay it ourselves. Our fees are based on successfully completing the assignment.
Our success rate means that we don’t need the safety net of making money out of an unfilled role. Our fee rates equate to (or are less than) those charged by database recruiters. A bespoke service for off the peg prices.
