Types of Recruitment Firms

Executive search (retained search):

Executive search companies specialize in recruiting Board Level personnel. The executive search firm receives a fee for conducting a thorough search based on investigative market research and networking. No advertisements are placed nor is there a reliance on a database as due diligence is stressed in finding a candidate. The typical fee structure for this type of recruitment is a fixed fee with payments of 33 percent on position being issued, 33 percent on delivery of a shortlist of candidates and 33 percent for final delivery.

Contingency search / executive selection:

Typically these agencies concentrate on senior management positions (say, assistant vice president and above) and specialist recruitment. Contingency search companies in Indonesia rely on advertising, research, professional networks and databases to locate candidates. These companies match candidates to the clients' needs and supply them on a success-based fee structure. Some companies may charge administration charges or deposits but more often than not the company will only pay a fee if it hires somebody. The typical fee structure is to charge 20 percent of the first year's total annual gross income.
