Engaged Search - Let us find the talent you need
Few things are more important to the success of your business than getting key hires right. We specialize in finding sales, managers, and executives that will drive top line sales growth and improve your bottom line profitability.
Engaged search provides the expertise and high-end service level of retained search, with a strong pay-for-performance aspect.
Our fee structure includes a flat engagement fee to start the search, but the vast majority of our fee isn’t earned until your new hire starts.
We understand that working with an executive recruiter is an investment and we’ve designed our 4-stage Recruiting Blueprint search process to ensure you get a strong return on your investment.
Of course, we also offer a guarantee. Yet, we prefer to get it right the first time, which is why our last replacement was over a decade ago.
You can learn more about each of the 4 stages of The Recruiting Blueprint here, but the best way to learn if we’re the recruiting partner for you AND that we're worth the investment is to book a no-obligation Discovery Session to learn if Building Gurus is the right recruiting partner for you.
