What is the benefit to working on retainer or exclusive terms?

It costs no more to work with a recruiter on a retainer basis that it does to work with them on any other basis. The same is true of exclusive recruitment contracts. The difference comes in the timeline for hiring, as a retainer or exclusive hiring contract allows much more time and – thus – allows for a much more thorough candidate research process. Recruiters need a commitment from employers before they spend the time required to adequately source quality candidates.

Remember: Retainers and exclusive agreements cost no more than contingent recruitment!

What is the downside of working on a contingency basis?

Contingent recruitment (sometimes called non-exclusive recruitment) means that the recruiter is competing for candidates and leads either with other recruitment agencies or even with the Client, should they advertise the open position on a job board or any other self-promotion avenue.

This way of working does not produce the best result for the client. The downside of working on a contingency basis will mean that the recruiter will only get paid should they successfully fill the role. Working this way means that the recruiter has to be quick – they simply do nothing more than a quick database search and get as many CV’s that look good to the client as possible so that their chances of filling the job opening increase.
