Hire Smarter with PeopleScout

In today’s ever-changing talent landscape, the importance of hiring a strong, adaptable and resilient team has never been greater. And despite the ongoing pandemic, many organizations have experienced a rising need for top talent to face ongoing challenges head-on. If your organization is in need of additional hiring support but are concerned with recruiting costs and keeping pace with urgent hiring demands, PeopleScout’s Direct Hire solutions can help.

PeopleScout offers contingent and retained search solutions to support your internal recruitment team and hiring managers as part of our Total Workforce Solutions service offering. Our team of senior recruiters specialize in direct placement hires for our clients, from white collar, mid-tier roles to niche opportunities, and everything in between.

Our Direct Hire solutions are built on partnership. We get to know your business and your roles so that we can develop a solution that meets your needs. And, if your needs change, we have the flexibility and scalability needed to respond to shifting business objectives—whether that means leveraging the expertise of our experienced recruitment professionals during demand periods of peak hiring volume, for special projects or hard to fill positions or quickly disengaging when hiring volumes decrease or a project ends.

PeopleScout’s comprehensive approach, along with our significant expertise and experience, offers you peace-of-mind, allowing you to focus on growing your business.


Contingent Search

Contingent Search

The contingent search model is the most commonly used direct hire solution and is primarily designed for mid-tier and lower-level roles. The cost per hire fee is based on volume and the exclusivity of the positions. With our contingent search model, we only receive our fee once your candidate is hired.

Retained Search

Retained Search

The retained search model is primarily used for executive search and hard to fill, niche roles. With our retained search model, a portion of the fee is due upon requisition release and the remainder of the fee is due upon hire of the candidate.
