Why would a hiring organization choose a retained search which involves paying money upfront, as opposed to a contingency search that requires no payment until the candidate starts? The most common reason is that a closer partnership between the hiring organization and 180 Engineering is necessary for a given position. For example, perhaps the situation calls for an intensive executive search or a confidential executive search. Or maybe the talent acquisition need is quite specialized, requiring the hiring organization and 180 Engineering to work closely together.
Although less than 20% of 180 Engineering’s searches are retained, we approach these scenarios with a heightened level of service and have achieved 100% success by placing exceptional talent with our clients.
