Retained Search

We proceed in a highly efficient and consultative fashion to find the perfect match between your needs and the skill sets of our candidates. Our retained executive search team is able to quickly deliver the most qualified candidates for your consideration.

Trust our retained search experts for your critically important hires

When time, complexity and confidentiality are critical, retained search firms are a sound option, and many clients choose Lucas Group. Retained search is particularly appropriate when the need is urgent, the hire will have a significant impact on company performance, or new opportunities emerge that must be quickly addressed. Retained executive search represents a commitment from both sides and sends a strong message to candidates that the company highly values this opportunity.

We understand and thrive in that environment. As one of North America’s premier retained search firms, we provide our clients with speed, quality and guaranteed performance outcomes. Our performance-based pricing structure ensures that you get what you pay for…and a whole lot more.

Focused, dedicated service that drives exceptional results

A critical difference with Lucas Group is that the retained search recruiter you meet at the outset of the relationship is the person who will be your single point of contact throughout the relationship. We buck the practice of many other retained search firms who fly in one team for the proposal presentation and then turn the actual search over to a different group. Our retained executive search consultants remain with you every step of the way, meeting you at the beginning and following through with you and the successful candidate long after the hire.

With Lucas Group, one knowledgeable expert serves as your central point of contact and is committed to and accountable for filling that position. The result of that singular dedication is an extremely high success rate for retained executive search. And isn’t that what you’re after—results?

Our retained search recruiters are true business partners with your company

For critically important hires, getting everything right the first time is crucial for success. We listen to all of the dynamics involved in the retained recruiting process, ensuring that everyone in your organization—from the hiring manager to the head of HR—and our organization, are on the same page. By clarifying expectations and minimizing misunderstandings at the outset, we ensure that your organization moves efficiently through the retained recruiting process.

Delivering competitive advantage in a retained search firm.

Business intelligence is a critical component of successful retained searches. To ensure that the candidate you hire will ultimately drive business success for your company, our retained search experts invest up front in comprehensive research. We assess both the position and the corporate strategy. Our comprehensive research evaluates the strategic, financial, political, cultural and operational aspects of the company and the hire. We understand the process. We understand the industry. We understand what it takes to deliver results that will exceed your expectations.
