Contingency Search Fees for contingency searches are based on 25% of the candidates first years Anticipated Annual Salary, however this can vary depending on the geographical location being sourced, the industry and the specific talent that is being recruited, as well as the number of positions being filled. Candidates in a contingency search are usually identified through an existing database or from public job boards. The search process is usually less structured than with a retained search, and less about an exact fit and more about getting potentially qualified candidates in front of the client so that the client can make his or her own final assessment.

Retained Search For when you need TCR to dedicate their efforts to your specific needs and position/projects are to be filled in a specific and critical time frame. TCR will charge a fee equivalent to 25% of the placed candidates first Years Anticipated Annual Salary, including bonuses and/or premiums. A retainer fee is charged for consulting services that is not contingent on the hiring of a candidate. One-fourth of the fee is due when the assignment begins. A second fourth is then billed when TCR presents potential candidates. The remaining balance is then due upon completion of the assignment.
