Retained Search

Senior Management and General Manager appointments are our strongest candidate base. We provide Retained Search Services for these assignments with a bespoke agreement on fee percentage.

  • 1/3 of the estimated total fee to be calculated on agreed total package is paid upon signature of contract
  • 1/3 of the estimated total fee is then paid upon delivery of the short list
  • The remaining 1/3 of the fee is paid upon acceptance of offer

Engaging HES Global as your Executive Search partner, as part of our services you will receive:

  • A priority search with a personal approach
  • A list of candidates being considered with an in depth evaluation report as to suitability
  • An agreed short list of targeted candidates for full interviews, referencing and briefing
  • Coordination of the entire interview process
  • Negotiation of offer process according to your criteria

Contingency Search

Our Contingency Search service pertains to roles for Department Heads, Executive Committee level as well Middle Management. We offer a beneficial Partnership Agreement based on successful completion of all assignments, which offers two tiers of fee options:

  • Exclusive Assignment for 30 days to HES Global, with a discounted fee
  • Non-Exclusive assignments

Our preferred type of assignment are Exclusive to HES Global for 30 days.
The Exclusivity fees are more competitive as an incentive to give HES Global first call and total exclusivity as sole recruitment consultancy for a period of 30 days.

Our Non-Exclusive fees are higher as the market will be somewhat diluted due to multiple recruiters working on the assignment, hence making it more challenging to complete.

For all Contingency searches, admin fees for 1/4 of the estimated fee are due in the event that:

  • The assignment work continues beyond 30 days
  • The client decides to appoint an internal candidate after this period without having disclosed the existence of the internal candidate at the start of the process or key appointments.
