DerrJones Recruiting Solutions

Executive Recruiting Services

A successful executive recruiting project starts with a strong client relationship. There are two critical players in the hiring process from the client side and a cast of supporting characters. Human Resources and the direct hiring manager are the drivers of the process and it is essential for us to understand their requirements, not only in terms of the objective requirements but even more importantly, the subjective side of the process - the "fit" between a candidate and the culture of the organization. Studies have shown that when people fail in a new position, it's not because of their technical or functional ability - it's because there is lack of alignment with the corporate culture.

Whether we're working on a retained or contingent executive recruiting project or on a permanent or temporary staffing assignment, you can count on DerrJones to provide you with exceptional service throughout the search process. Here's what you can expect:

  • Regular communication on the status of the assignment.
  • Market intelligence. We'll let you know what we're hearing about your company and the opportunity in the marketplace.
  • Presentation of candidates who fit your requirements. This means candidates who have the skills you're looking for as well as candidates who will be a good fit with your organizational culture.
  • Candidates who are highly committed to the prospect of working for your organization.
  • Candidates who understand the salary range for the position.

Sometimes our clients are looking for a little extra help with a staffing project. Our consulting services provide services that are custom tailored to your needs. We can "unbundle" our services in many ways. If you need help screening resumes, interviewing, checking references, or developing a perpetual candidate pool, we can help. Our pricing varies based on the scope of the project.

Executive Recruiting FAQ's - For Employers

How are your fees determined?

Permanent Staffing

DerrJones provides clients with several fee options, including retained search, contingency search, and a third fee plan that combines the two. Regardless of the method chosen, fees are based on a percentage of the first year's cash compensation. Our retained services are billed in three installments: one-third is billed when we initiate the assignment; one-third is billed in 30 days; the final third is billed in 60 days. Under the contingency method, the total fee is billed upon the candidate's acceptance of an offer. The third plan provides for one-third of the fee to be paid upon initiating the assignment, with the balance due upon placement.

Contract/Interim Placement

Contract rates are negotiated based on a number of factors, including the duration of the assignment, the skills required, and the contractor's desired hourly rate. DerrJones works with our clients to determine appropriate rates for the assignment, based on market conditions.

Is there a benefit to selecting the retained option?

When DerrJones works on a retained basis, you are guaranteed dedicated resources to work on your assignment - and we continue to give the assignment top priority until the search is completed. While DerrJones provides a guarantee on all placements, clients opting for retained services receive an extended guarantee.

What is your guarantee policy?

DerrJones provides a 90 day guarantee on all contingency placements, and a six month guarantee on retained assignments. If a candidate leaves to accept another position or is terminated during the guarantee period, DerrJones will replace the candidate at no charge to the hiring organization.

How is DerrJones different from other recruiting firms?

At DerrJones, we believe that we have two client constituencies: the companies that we work with and our candidates. We place significant emphasis on honest and consistent communication to both of these groups. We challenge you to ask our clients...and to ask our candidates about our process. When you do, we're confident that you will consider DerrJones for all of your recruiting needs. Put DerrJones recruiting power to work for you. Keep your business...ahead of the curve.
