Looking for the perks of a Retained Search without the financial risk? A Container Search offers the best of both worlds: your job opening will receive priority treatment and you will have access to all feedback and analysis, but should you place a candidate outside of our search efforts, we will transfer your deposit funds to a future search.
A Container Search is a hybrid search service between two common models: contingency and retained. Clients pay an upfront fee to a single recruiting firm in order to secure their time and resources. This fee acts more as a deposit, one that can be reallocated or transferred to a future search should the position close or be filled by alternative methods.
As clients begin to strategize and prioritize their hiring needs, they tend to move away from the more general and surface-level recruiter-client relationships and opt for a trusted partnership with a single recruiter or search firm. A Container Search offers a chance for that necessary trust-building to occur, while reducing the financial risk harbored in retained agreements.
Most container relationships will evolve into retainers as trust builds and staffing is more appropriately planned.
Benefits of Working with an Outside Recruiting Firm
The average annual salary of a talent acquisition manager is $65,000, according to Glassdoor. And that’s just their salary expense. Bringing in a third-party recruiting firm gives you an entire team of talent acquisition managers for a fraction of the cost.
You could spend countless hours researching the market, identifying top-tier candidates, convincing them to come work for your company, screening them, interviewing them, onboarding them, etc. all on top of your routine tasks, assignments and projects, or you could let us do it.
Build a Partnership
The best recruiting firms become an extension of your in-house HR department. We understand your culture and values, are there providing feedback and recommendations throughout the process, and feel more like a partner than a transaction.
