A retained search is particularly appropriate when your position or project is urgent, and the new hire will have a significant impact on your companies performance, or if new opportunities emerge that must be quickly addressed.
A retained search option represents a commitment from both parties and sends a strong message to your potential candidates that the company
highly values this opportunity.
For when you need SMR to dedicate their efforts to your specific needs and your positions need to be filled in a specific and critical time frame,
SMR charges a fee that is equivalent to 25% of the placed candidates first Years Anticipated Annual Salary, including bonuses and/or premiums.
The retainer fee is charged for consulting services that is not contingent on the hiring of a candidate. One-half of the fee is due when the
assignment begins, and the remaining balance is then due upon the candidates start date.
Should a candidate, placed by SMR Services Group, Inc, on a retained search, be terminated for cause within 90 days of placement,
SMR guarantees to provide a replacement search at no additional charge.
