Search Options

Retained Search

This plan is well-suited for high-level searches with a great sense of urgency and confidentiality. As leading plastics industry recruiters, our pricing is simple: 1/3rd of the estimated fee is required upfront, 1/3rd when the first slate of candidates appear, and the remaining after the position is successfully filled.

Engagement/Priority Search

Ideal for all levels of positions that require a degree of urgency and/or confidentiality. This plan offers the best of both worlds of a retained and contingency search. Also called a performance-based retainer, a nominal down payment is required upfront, and the remainder is due once our candidate begins employment with you.

Contingency Search

As plastics recruiters, we know your challenges and needs. This is why our contingency search solutions cater to your search requirements with the low urgency and would only require a review of our current candidates that are on file. The best part is that no money is required upfront and you have to pay only after our candidate begins employment with you.

Our skilled team of plastics headhunters helps you hire top talent in the industry so you can grow.
