Is a contingency search appropriate for you? It really depends. If you want the flexibility to source for candidates on your own, while in the process work with a highly trained recruiting team, then this may be a good option for you. This often makes sense in a tight labor market, when quiet often most of higher caliber candidates have already been absorbed in direct hire opportunities. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t any highly skilled contract employees available to meet your needs, it just means that you may have lesser options to select from and you may have to entice them with a direct hire option for them to consider your opportunity.
In this instance, you often get access to candidates that are hidden from the marketplace and also only pay us a fee if you hire from us.
