- Retained Search – Retained search firm’s fees are typically paid in thirds. The first 1/3 paid upon acceptance of search, the 2/3 upon provision of the candidate shortlist and the final 1/3 paid upon completion of the search. Redstone Commodity Search aims to offer a structure weighted on the completion fee. We reduce the upfront risk for our clients by requesting 1/3 upfront and the rest upon successful completion of the search. We work closely with you to set the parameters of the search, a strategy for identifying, screening, evaluating and hiring the desired candidate. The Redstone Commodity Search Retained methodology uses the full search capacity of an in house resourcing team and targeted advertising campaign to provide a shortlist of the most appropriate and available candidates along with our recommendations.
