Recruitment Services

FCR offers four types of recruitment services: Retained, Engaged, Contingency and Temp-to-Perm/Consulting. Each of which is described below.

Retained Searches receive our highest priority and work best for executive-level staffing needs. This is how it works: We negotiate a fee agreement based upon the anticipated total compensation package. FCR requires a 30% non-refundable deposit of the total fee to initiate the search. We receive a second installment of 30% upon presentation of three candidates and the balance of our fee is due 30 days after candidate’s start. We have exclusivity on this search until filled and will be paid for any candidate hired regardless of its source.

Engaged Searches are best utilized for high-visibility or “tough-to-fill” positions. This is how it works: We negotiate a fee agreement and you provide an up-front commitment of $7,500.00 to begin the search. FCR will provide at least three qualified candidates within 30 days receipt of commitment. We give each other exclusivity on this search for sixty days; our candidates will only be presented to you and we will be the only agency to conduct the search. We invoice upon written acceptance of the job.

As part of our service for Retained and Engaged Searches, we provide a due diligence package which contains a signed candidate consent form, degree verification and references.

Contingency Searches are best used for less urgent placements. This is how it works: We negotiate a fee agreement and our service fee is payable only when you hire our candidate. We invoice upon written acceptance and the replacement warranty is predicated on receipt of our fee within 20 days from date of invoice. So that we are clear, we place the same priority on our client's contingency search as they do. If it is a priority to you, it is a priority to us!

Temp-to-Perm or Consulting Assignments are excellent options for many clients. Benefit’s include:

  • The ability to start candidates quickly.
  • A great way to “Audition Talent”.
  • Ensures the right match for your position and organizational climate and culture.
  • An alternative to hiring freezes or tight budgets,
  • That it is perfect for short-term assignments, sabbaticals or to cover extended absences.

Temp-to-perm or consulting assignments have the added benefit of incorporating our service fee into a bill rate that will not adversely affect your Overhead or G&A rates. This is how it works: Once you approve the candidate and we agree on the bill rate, you issue a Purchase Order (PO). The candidate works at your location and you approve their weekly timecards which are passed through us to our back-office partner. We monitor and report to you all hours billed and any other approved charges, such as travel. Many of these assignments are three to six months, but often go longer.

Recruitment Methodology

FCR has a well-defined recruitment methodology. We use a variety of techniques to identify and recruit impact players. As part of that process we co-develop a Staffing Plan which sets forth the job description, identifies specific job requirements and defines the hiring process to be employed throughout the conduct of the search. We have learned that establishing these parameters up-front is critical to the success of the search.

Using the staffing plan as a baseline, we go directly into the marketplace to isolate potential candidates in the target niche along with searching an extensive in-house candidate database. FCR works closely with our clients to ensure that we have targeted the proper mix of corporations and we are vigilant that we do not violate sub-contracting or teaming arrangements. We utilize a number of Internet search techniques in the conduct of our business. The development of a well-crafted staffing plan, coupled with a blend of direct and indirect recruiting and hard work has made us Your Trusted Staffing Partner since 1999.

FCR utilizes a three-step process to (1) identify and qualify, (2) interview, and (3) present and close the candidate.

Step One: We identify and qualify potential candidates targeting specific firms as well as using our in-house data base and knowledge of the market place. We score each candidate against the staffing plan. We priority rank and schedule the top candidates for detailed interviews.

Step Two: Detailed candidate interviews focus on job history, tenure, achievements, salary and the reasons for job changes. We gather other key metrics such as their academic achievements, goals, strengths, weaknesses, and management capacity. As a result of the interview FCR priority ranks the top candidates.

Step Three – Present and Close the Candidate: FCR submits candidates electronically to our clients. Each submission contains a detailed description of the candidate and a current copy of their resume.

We prepare candidates for your interview process and debrief them after each meeting. During this part of the process it is our intention to act as a conduit of information so that a decision can be reached efficiently.

We also work to “close” the candidate. It is a delicate process, especially during the resignation period because impact players are in short supply and they are subject to aggressive counter offers. We focus on “the counter” throughout the process and are particularly diligent during the resignation period. In short, to the best of our abilities - we deliver a candidate that meets your critical needs.
