How to hire a headhunter - contingent, selection and search


First and foremost, is the need to understand the different types of services provided, and which one best suits your needs.

Let’s start with the basic ‘contingent’ service. This can be an attractive proposition for employers because fees only become payable once someone starts a new job. The recruitment firm uses its skills and database to match potential candidates to the vacancy. The downside is that you’ll have limited access to all potential candidates, and may not see some of the best. Only those who are actively looking for a new role and have registered with the recruitment firm will be in the running. Expect to pay between 15 – 25% of the first year’s remuneration package for this service
