Retained search

We offer retained services at contingency speed. Payment terms are one-third upon engagement; the balance is performance based and paid on the start date.

We WILL present you with a short list of qualified candidates. We WILL NOT fill your box with a ton of resumes. We know that what you want is simply to choose from a small group of quality candidates. Other recruiters might not be sure what you want, so you end up interviewing numerous people. When you retain Winston Dunn, you will be saved from the madness of sifting through a multitude of resumes from a variety of search firms. We will save you time. Upon engagement, we will conduct a collaborated needs analysis with you about your company and the potential opportunity.

Once we come to an agreement on the needs analysis, we will then provide you with a timetable of all tasks to be performed. These tasks include a listing of all companies targeted for the search, a date that you can expect three to five qualified candidates, references from the candidates, and interview dates available. We will also provide you with a weekly activity report.
The internet provides fast access to bad candidates. Recruiting provides slow access to great candidates.
Very few recruiters know how to make passive candidates move. We are better at this than our competition. Generation X candidates control the market and will almost always tell you that they are not looking but to let them know if you get something better. As search consultants that specialize exclusively in the insurance industry, we are trained to discover a passive candidate’s “career wound.” By truly understanding your company’s unique culture, spirit and philosophy, we can share your enthusiasm with potential candidates who currently work for your strongest competitors.

Search firms can become a public relationship arm for the company they work with. With Winston Dunn, there are no marketplace rumors. We can either keep information confidential, or only release the information that you want out in the market.

Once an offer is extended and the candidate accepts, we will then conduct the transition component of the retained search. The consultants at Winston Dunn will stay in contact with the candidate when they give notice and until 90 days of employment with the hiring company.
