What is Retained Recruitment and How Can It Benefit Your Business?
Retained recruitment is a specialised approach to hiring where a recruitment agency is exclusively engaged by an organisation to fill a specific executive or highly specialised position. Unlike contingency recruitment, where agencies only receive payment upon successful placement, retained recruitment involves a formal agreement and an upfront fee for dedicated services.
By opting for retained recruitment services, your business gains numerous benefits that can have a significant impact on your hiring success and overall organisational growth.
Commitment to Excellence and Results
When you engage a retained recruitment agency such as Serve Recruit, you establish a committed partnership focused on delivering exceptional results.
