Based on the success of the search

Contingency Search


Contingency Search ist ein erfolgsbasiertes Rekrutierungsmodell, bei der wir als Headhunter bzw. Rekrutierungsagentur nur dann bezahlt werden, wenn wir auch einen Kandidaten erfolgreich vermitteln. Dazu nutzen wir unsere umfangreiche Datenbank und unser großes Netzwerk, um geeignete Talente zu finden, die optimal auf Ihre Stellenausschreibung passen.

Der Hauptunterschied zwischen dem Retained Recruitment und dem Contingency Recruitment besteht darin, dass der Personalvermittler nicht die “Verantwortung” für die Suche nach dem richtigen Talent übernimmt und kein spezieller Rekrutierungsservice angeboten wird.

Contingency Search – when you are always hiring new candidates

Contingency search, or performance-based search, is often used for jobs that do not need to be filled urgently or for jobs that the client fills on an ongoing basis. Contingency Search means that at RadixNetwork we search for candidates on a purely merit-based basis. As opposed to an exclusive contract with Retained Search.

The advantages of the success-based search model are that a fee is not due until the employment contract is signed with the candidate. In addition, you as the client have the option of commissioning several personnel consultants in parallel. On the other hand, you as a customer have no guarantees, as is the case with the retained search model, for example. In addition, the applicants can be presented to the competitors in parallel.

Whatever type of recruitment model you choose, we at RadixNetwork are here to help. If you would like to discuss the best option for your situation, please do not hesitate to contact us.
