How We Work

Lucas Group tailors our search services to the requirements of individual projects, enabling our teams to best help clients and candidates achieve their business and professional goals. Across our practice groups we offer a variety of Retained Recruiting, Contingency Recruiting, and Contract Staffing services designed to assist clients in meeting their specific hiring and staffing requirements.

Regardless of the approach, Lucas Group’s knowledgeable search experts, collaborative culture, and rigorous methodologies drive competitive advantage. Discover what’s right for you and your business.


Contingency Search
Sometimes it makes sense for companies to only pay when the process is complete and your new hire is on board. Contingency recruiting is particularly appropriate for businesses looking to fill mid- to upper-level positions on a non-confidential basis. With demonstrated precision and insight, Lucas Group can help you drive business success utilizing our contingency recruiting model.


Retained Search
When time, complexity, impact and confidentiality are critical, many clients choose Lucas Group. Particularly appropriate when the need is urgent, the hire will have an impact on company performance, or new opportunities emerge that must be quickly addressed, retained recruiting represents a commitment from both sides and sends a strong message to candidates that you highly value the opportunity.


Contract Staffing
The same Lucas Group culture and methodologies that have made us North America’s premier recruiting firm in the executive search world, apply to our contract staffing work. Many of the same clients who engage our executive recruiting services also turn to us for their contract needs when they experience spikes in seasonal workloads, want access to specialized professionals, or seek to improve cost management.
