Exclusive and Retained Recruitment

Exclusive Recruitment

Exclusive recruitment is when you grant us a period of exclusivity to fulfill a role – and only pay on success. We take a detailed brief, you complete a “Job Fit Survey” – and we find and match candidates against this.

Is exclusive recruitment right for you?

In a candidate-short market, successful recruiters and companies need to engage with both active and passive job seekers. This takes time and investment. Making decisions without a sufficient level of insight, engagement and rigour in the recruitment process can be costly, particularly if new hires leave within the first year.

In most cases, we recommend retained recruitment to deliver the best and most cost-effective results. And if you’re looking to build teams, stabilise your hiring costs, and streamline your hiring process, then consider our Managed Service.

Graham has consistently gone above and beyond the call of duty before, during and after my most recent engagement with D&G. He has by far exceeded my expectations in terms of professionalism, attentiveness and getting the job done superbly; he is an extremely safe pair of hands. Needless to say he has a natural personability which makes difficult situations seem easy.

James Higgins

Founder & CEO

I have worked with Graham on several recruitment hires over the years. He is diligent and attentive when assessing the needs of both employer and employees and his contribution to BoardEx over the years has been immense. Looking forward to working on future projects together when the opportunity presents itself.

I have known Graham for a couple of years now and find his work to change the perception of recruitment in the BI space exemplary. His work to build a community of like minded professionals in the BI space is fantastic and provides a valuable service above and beyond the expectations of the recruit.

Retained Recruitment

Retained recruitment isn’t just about finding people for permanent roles – it’s finding and engaging the right people who will stay, add value to your organisation and you retain your IP for longer.

Reliable recruitment to build sales, technology and leadership teams

When clients engage with us on a retained recruitment basis, we can invest the time and money needed to recruit the right people for you. We embed your brand and company values throughout the process to attract people who will not only fit, but excel in your organisation.

✔︎ 96% Retention Rate after 12 months

We don’t believe the widely-accepted benchmark of a 70% retention rate is good enough. It’s costly for your organisation – and we’ve proven that we can do much better than that. We consistently deliver a 96% retention rate after the first year, and 90% after the second year.

✔︎ Low risk recruitment with our free replacement guarantee*

We reduce risk from the process by offering a free replacement service if a candidate leaves within the 12 months*. (*Terms and conditions apply.)

✔︎ Powered by TAG360 Methodology and Digital Platform

We’ve invested in award-winning technology and streamlined an exceptionally rigorous recruitment process to find, engage and prepare the right people for you.

It’s what we call TAG360, and it’s the way intelligent recruitment should be done to save you time, money and speed up your hiring process. Reliable, in-depth, efficient, cost-effective – and delivers for the long-term.

Our candidates are looking for careers – not just jobs, and often grow into other more Senior roles. This saves our clients having to re-spend on hiring. Retention is the key to lower recruitment spend, TAG360 is the key to “getting it right first time”.
