The premium package is a retained solution, or a “retainer”; whereby much like from the moment an Accountant or a Solicitor is instructed, you are paying for a guarantee of the consultants’ time. A percentage of the fee is paid up front and then at agreed points along the process. This is a completely transparent process and our award-winning combination of advanced technology and cutting-edge methodology produces in-depth candidate assessment, streamlining the recruitment process. This in turn reduces costs and commercial down-time and increases new employee retention. This service comes with up to a years’ guarantee and a 96% retention rate after a year in post. Video interviewing and psychometric profiling form part of this package. This is generally a great option for more senior permanent hires, though the package can be tailored according to requirements.
An exclusive agreement is whereby the Client agrees that they will use only Contrast for their recruitment (this can be agreed on a per vacancy, agreed timescale or ongoing basis). This package includes all of the elements of the Contingency offering, plus a job profiling service; whereby the Client can complete a job profile tool, drawing out the elements of what makes an ideal candidate match for the role(s) in question. As with contingency, no fee is paid until the appointment of the individual(s) and there is a full refund guarantee in place over 10 weeks following the appointment. Depending on volume, frequency and candidate availability, this option offers better value for money than the silver offering, as there is flexibility to agree a reduction in fee(s) if exclusive. This service covers temporary, contract and permanent recruitment.
