Level 3: SRS – Socius Retained Search
Retained Search is very different to Contingency style recruitment.
Retained Search is generally carried out for Senior and Executive level positions where there is a general shortage of high quality people in that sector.
The most significant difference between retained search and contingency recruitment is the method in which they generate candidate’s.
Retained Search follows a process to identify, convert and recruit, highly talented and highly sought after individuals whose talent the client would like to acquire. A quality Retained Recruiter will identify a search strategy which will target companies known to employ the talent the client is seeking.
Retained Search operates under an exclusive contract with the client, which means that there is buy-in from both parties. By maintaining this exclusivity it means that Socius acts as an effective and consistent Ambassador for the hiring firm.
