The two most common approaches to recruitment for executive roles are retained search and contingency recruitment.


Retained search is ideal for senior roles which require a rigorous search process and a consultative approach to mitigate risk. A retained search for an executive role is led by a senior partner and typically includes extensive research, formal stakeholder meetings, facilitation of search committee discussions, executive briefs and advertising programs, partner-led interviews, formal candidate presentation, offer negotiation, psychometric assessments, and reference checks all within a retained fee.


Organizations that wish to hire a senior executive through a streamlined process that does not require the same level of consultation, stakeholder engagement, or extensive research may wish to opt for a contingency recruitment process where the fee for service is contingent upon success.


Meridia works with our colleagues at KBRS (Knightsbridge Robertson Surrette) to offer both services to our clients. Contact Kevin Stoddart to learn more about these approaches and which will best serve your needs.
