Committed Search

The most cost-effective search.


Our Commitment To Clients

  • In return for our client's commitment to us, we give them an almost full Retained Search firm service at Contingency Search fee costs - giving clients a unique value for money investment!

  • No hire - no fee.

  • Fees of only 18% of the first year's annual gross salary and max bonus potential.                                (Typical retained firm fees are 33% of the entire dollar value of a candidate's package, including benefits). 

  • We present two shortlisted candidates usually within four weeks after turning stones globally as needed. 

  • We typically assess 10-20 candidates before an in-depth half-day assessment of four.

  • We present clients with five key reports on each shortlisted candidate:-           

         -  A, in-depth career and position match Summary.            - Their Resume                                                                           -  A Leadership Competency Assessment report                  - A Personality & Character Summary                      

         -  References fresh from direct candidate managers. 

  • Positions included in this category would be property General Manager (With title variations), Country, Area, Regional and Corporate Managers/Directors/VP, SVP, COO, CEO, MD, or similar titles. 

  • This category also includes specialist property roles, such as a Michelin-level Executive Chef, and Professionals engaged in unique client/customer experiences.

Our Client's Commitment to us.

  • In return for our depth of service and low fees, and serious about our handling their search:

  • Clients appoint us exclusively for eight weeks (Having exhausted internal search and ads and will not work with other search or recruitment firms on this assignment during that period). 

  • Make an up-front non-refundable Admin payment of $3,000 (At COO level and above, US$5,000).

  • This Admin payment is fully deductible from our placement fee, costing clients no more than that fee.

  • Our policy affirms no placement - no fee.




We conduct Bespoke Search Globally.

A greater depth of work is conducted strictly confidentially at a Contingency level fee.

  • An up-front Admin payment of only $1,500, fully deductible from our placement fee, is charged.

  • No appointment - no fee.

  • Assignments are exclusive to us for 4-weeks.

  • As included, our fees are only 15% of the annual gross salary and max target bonus or commissions.

  • We present clients with three critical reports:-                                                                                                                      -  Career and position match Summary (Interviews based on leadership competencies).                                            Resume       -  References fresh from direct managers.    


Our Approach To All Executive Search 

  • We never try to sell a client to a candidate or a candidate to a job.  

  • If we owned your business and would hire the candidate, we'll, with total confidence, market them to you. 

  • However, if we are not 100% sure we'd hire them for our own business, we will not present them to you.

  • This is a far greater depth of service than any Contingency Search firm at a lower price because you committed to us and received an almost complete Retained Search firm level of service.

Fee Payment Terms & Replacement Policy
Our fees are payable within 30-days of a candidate's starting date.
There are no rebates of Fees or Admin charges paid.  
However, we will be pleased to provide an additional shortlist of two candidates at no charge, within 30-days, where possible, if a candidate resigns or is terminated for reasonable cause in the first 3-months from their start date. 
Reasonable cause only applies if such reason falls under the definition of the national employment laws in the country they are hired.  
Employees who resign claiming Constructive Dismissal or for being asked to carry out duties incompatible with their job description is not paid by the terms of their employment, are made redundant due to Covid, or otherwise are let go for any other reason than for a legal breach of national employment or other criminal acts - do not qualify the employer for replacement candidate services.  Such separation circumstances do not fall under reasonable cause for replacement candidates at no fee. 

In some countries such as the EU, local law may require value-added taxes to be added to our invoice to our services if our office is in the same country or regional union. Otherwise, all our fees carry no such taxes.
