Our search options

Our contingency search is unique and includes many of the benefits found in a retained search without any up front fee payment from our client. We dedicate our time and efforts to meet and screen individuals and only send through highly suitable candidates. We introduce qualified legal talents from our database as well as actively target and headhunt new potentials in the market.

Clients are charged a service fee only upon successful placement and after the start of employment. With each successful placement, we attach a fixed fee of 35% (calculated based on the annual guaranteed income).

Working closely with HR and hiring managers, we discuss the job requirements and provide a market map of the potential talents in the market. We work on an agreed time schedule for the hire and provide a shortlist of candidates who we have met and carefully screened to match the job requirement.

Clients are invoiced an agreed amount once at the start of our search which is typically 1/3 of the total expected service fee. We start immediately after our initial meeting and require no further payment until we successfully complete the assignment.
