Our retained search offering

We pride ourselves on having a clear and well-designed process to help support clients with their staffing requirements. This simple step-by-step program demonstrates how we see both client and candidate through the journey of employment.

The built environment from a recruitment perspective relies on the ability to network and deeply engage with candidates of the highest calibre. These are candidates whom are in huge demand with a significant track record of adding considerable value to organizations within the industry.

When there is a requirement to hire externally for a strategic position, retained search is the most effective method.

A retained search benefits from the following:

  • Specialist market mapping
  • Exclusive candidates
  • Dedicated search consultants
  • Managed advertising campaign
  • Full candidate screening and shortlist delivered
  • Fixed fee to help manage budgets more effectively

"I have worked with consultants exclusively at Harper Harrison to help with our hiring and expansion needs at Empiric. They spent a significant amount of time up front to get a solid understanding of not only our business here, but also the company culture which is so vital to our hiring process. Harper Harrison used their extensive network to identify strong candidates and only put forward candidates with the relevant experience that she felt would fit well within our business. It was clear that they had taken the time to make sure that all candidates being put forward had a genuine understanding and interest in the business and the work that we do, while also only putting forward candidates that had demonstrated a real passion and drive. 
All candidates that were put forward had also been fully vetted by Harper Harrison before they were presented to us, including references and ‘right to work’ checks, which was extremely useful when we had made our decision to offer one of the candidates a position and allowed us to move very quickly.
I was very satisfied with the process from start to finish and would happily work with Harper Harrison again."
