Search Tiers

A LEVEL OF SERVICE THAT BEST FITS YOUR NEEDS

Offering 2 levels of executive search service, a partnership with DB Search Group will provide a high results-oriented solution that is designed to fully cater to your current particular senior and executive leadership needs, and an optimal model to scale your company in the best way that’s right for you.

TIER I – ENGAGED SEARCH

TIER I – ENGAGED SEARCH

This level combines our retained model with a hybrid contingent model twist.  Unlike contingent search, it’s an exclusive and confidential search designed for clients with time-sensitive, precision-based needs for a critical top position to be filled for their organization with a higher level of Leadership talent.  Also unlike contingent search, we devote greater amount of time and resources on the procurement of high-level candidates in this model, screening them through rigorous vetting and providing our client a full-scale talent acquisition process.  We have a 100% fill ratio with this model.

Here’s where it becomes the hybrid model.  As an engagement investment, the client pays only ¼ of the total fee upfront for resource allocation and to start the search process, however the remaining majority of the fee is paid contingent upon the successful hiring of our candidate, and it has a 6-month replacement guarantee.

TIER II – RETAINED SEARCH

TIER II – RETAINED SEARCH

This level is used for all highest priority searches with the greatest urgency tied to filling them with a top Executive Leadership hire.  As our ultimate partnership model, our firm acts as a full extension of your company’s internal Talent Acquisition team and takes on all of its responsibilities from start to finish.  This is a fully uncompromised, highly effective search process where we devote the greatest amount of time, energy, and resources to this exclusive and confidential search, and dedicate a set number of recruiters solely toward the successful placement.  The client has full exclusive rights to all presented candidates during this process and they are not shown to any other companies until fully released from the search process by the client.

The performance-based fee is paid in three 1/3 installments; 1.) upon signoff on the start of the full-scale search process, 2.) upon presentation of our finalist candidates, and 3.) upon the candidate’s start day as a new hire.  We currently have a 100% fill ratio with this search and it has a full 1-year replacement guarantee.
