Our placement mechanisms

Recruiting new talent for your company can be an extremely time-consuming process, as well as an expensive endeavour. At Prodrill we pride ourselves in adapting to your needs. Saving you time and money is one of our highest priorities. There are mainly two types of recruitment models, contingency and retained. Both have differing merits and are priced accordingly.

Contingency Recruitment

Is very straightforward. It is where we will charge a fixed percentage fee per placement, that is agreed before commencement of the process, payable on the successful candidate’s start date. If you have a position that you’re looking to fill as soon as possible your vacancy is managed within our vacancy pool, and an experienced recruiter is allocated to work on your behalf.

Whilst contingency recruitment can be effective for certain disciplines or level of roles, it may not provide you with the bespoke approach that you may need when candidates are not readily available; including technical specialists, senior or executive appointment and roles which have proved difficult to fill using the contingency approach.

Retained Search Solution

Also called an Executive Search Arrangement or Retained Recruitment. It is a personalised, tailored made recruitment plan where Prodrill works close with the HR department, department heads, and other stakeholders such as the board of directors to fully understand the qualities needed for the right candidate. This is an exclusive arrangement and a percentage of the agreed fee is paid up-front with the remainder payable at different stages of the recruitment journey. Undertaking a retained search requires a more considered approach, which includes detailed planning during the initial stages.

We would recommend speaking with Louise Wood our Managing Director who can provide a detailed solution package for a Retained Search Solution.
