FAQs About Services

Executive search firms help businesses and other organizations find the leaders they need to succeed.

Recruiters working for these firms explore a wide array of candidates and scrutinize the most suitable ones based on the organization's specific priorities. This may include factors such as the candidate's qualifications, geographical preferences, professional behavior, and so on.

A retained search is an exclusive hiring method in which an organization contracts with a single search firm to fill a specific target job position.

The main disadvantage of using a retained search is that the employer must make an initial payment to the firm upfront.

Although the benefits are much more appealing, the process of retained search can be quite complicated for employers. They have to manage only one search firm exclusively, and this firm becomes the company’s brand representative. The search firm has the responsibility to uphold the company’s confidentiality throughout the hiring process, which is a crucial aspect to take into consideration.

The contingency search approach is when a company contacts multiple recruitment agencies to help them find employees for different job roles. The good thing about this approach is that employers don't have to make an upfront payment to anyone. Only the agency that succeeds in finding the right candidate for the employer gets paid.
However, a contingency search may make you feel scattered and stressed.
When multiple agencies try to find candidates for a single employer, they fail to understand the company's intricacies or the job role. Therefore, the employers must brief the recruiting agency on every minute detail, which is time-consuming.
Lastly, the retained search results are 100% guaranteed, whereas, in the case of a contingency search, no recruitment agency can be held responsible in case of failure.

Our search method is a unique blend of the retained and contingency search methods, which takes the best aspects of both to create a process that favors employers.

Under our system, employers must make an upfront payment (engagement fee) to start the search. The engagement fee is decided at the time of the contract agreement and is typically a percentage of the expected overall fee.

The remainder of the search is executed based on a contingency search process. This means that we only get paid the balance of a placement fee when we complete the search and deliver results to our clients. If we are not able to find the talent you need for the position, then there are no other fees owed.

“From the first contact with me, through the interview process and eventual hire date was a consummate professional. They know their client's needs well, and did a terrific job of coaching, supporting and guiding me through the interview process, while keeping the important channels of communication flowing with the employer, their client. I would wholeheartedly recommend Proactive as a recruiter from either a client/employer or potential employee perspective.”
