Contingent Recruitment (non-exclusive)

Contingent non-exclusive recruitment is senior management recruitment, with payment of the fee contingent on the hiring a referred candidate – part of the commission at the beginning of the hiring and smaller part at expiry probation.

Normally this method of non-exclusive recruitment is recommended when;
• positions are low level and non-critical to the organization
• many qualified candidates will be available
• if a large numbers of positions has to be filled
• when speed is a greater priority over quality
• if clients’ hiring manager wants to control screening process and interviewing candidates
• as it is non-exclusive; broader exposure to candidates results in high volume of resumes from multiple sources
• up or down tuneable candidate flow depending on needs and urgency

The disadvantages often attached to contingent recruitment (non-exclusive recruitment), we do not want to leave unmentioned, are;
• time consuming
– clients’ intensive cooperation and involvement in reviewing large volume of resumes, control screening process and interviewing candidates
• risk of misrepresentation
– misrepresentation of clients’ business due to misinterpretations, lack of information, candidates judgement will be based on their experience with the recruiter
• non-exclusive recruitment
– this means also; resumes are send also to competitors and best candidates will go most likely to the highest commission payment
• contingency recruiters have the incentive to negotiate compensation on behalf of the candidate
• limited sourcing often only candidates that are on the market
• potential disputes between agencies that have submitted the same candidate
• lack of commitment from agencies as priority will be the quick-wins

As we strive for quality, customer integration and customer satisfaction, we build relationships based on trust and integrity. With sensitive issues as recruitment, we do NOT want to be linked with (fast) poor or partial solutions! Consultdustry is a contingent recruitment partner that match, candidates and companies to achieve mutual success for both. A procedure that will suite and benefit us too.
