Contingency Search

The Contingency search engagement structure provides our clients the benefit of our years of experience and access to our rich network of candidates. Contingency searches can be exclusive or non-exclusive at the discretion of the client. The engagement structure for a contingency search requires no up-front fee thusallowing our clients to see candidate resumes before incurring any cost. Contingency searches employ our methodology honed by over 22 years in recruiting which is driven by identifying targeted candidates that meet our client’s specific needs and driving the process to close. This is organized into the following three key steps: Define, Target and Close.

Co-Tained Search

Co-tained search is a hybrid engagement structure developed by Jacob Management Group to allow our clients to increase the priority of their position. This engagement structure is used for mid-level searches which require a high degree of urgency. The co-tainer secures the search priority at the same level as a retained search. Co-tained searches are exclusive and fees are due in two installments, an up-front non-refundable co-tainer, with the remaining fee due upon candidate start.

Retained Search

Retained search is usually the preferred search method for Senior Executive Level searches. This engagement structure signals a deep level of commitment that allows us to provide you with an enhanced level of services & candidate evaluation. Retained searches also garner stronger attention from senior-level executives, many of whom will only consider retained searches, because they know the company is serious & focused. Additionally, because of your clear commitment, these exclusive searches are given priority status both in time and team assignment.
