Frequently Asked Q’s

Really? Yes! Due to the fact our Search professionals are setup in a satellite capacity, the company has limited overhead, allowing us to charge 15% or less for all executive search placements. Give us a call, we might just exceed your expectations[/cl_text][/cl_toggle][cl_toggle is_active=”0″ title=”Do I pay up front?”][cl_text custom_typography=”0″ custom_responsive_992_bool=”0″ custom_responsive_768_bool=”0″ css_style=”{‘margin-top’:’35px’}_-_json”]All our searches are retained, so yes, we require an engagement fee to begin the search for your next executive. This is typically a third of the full fee, allowing us to absorb up to 70% of the financial execution risk. The majority of our fees are due only after your candidate has been hired.[/cl_text][/cl_toggle][cl_toggle is_active=”0″ title=”How come?”][cl_text custom_typography=”0″ custom_responsive_992_bool=”0″ custom_responsive_768_bool=”0″ css_style=”{‘margin-top’:’35px’}_-_json”]This is the difference between Executive Search and Contingent Recruitment. Most every major purchase in life require your engagement via a downpayment. Houses. Private Jet’s. Vacations. All are paid for to secure your commitment. Our dedicated search professionals work on 1/2 searches a month unlike traditional recruitment companies that frequently have their consultants work 5-10 searches per month. This guarantees clear, concise focus and is why our fill ratio is close to 100% through over 500 searches.[/cl_text][/cl_toggle][/cl_toggles][cl_toggles accordion=”1″ css_style=”{‘margin-top’:’15px’}_-_json”][cl_toggle is_active=”0″ title=”Why should we choose Crown Search Group?”][cl_text custom_typography=”0″ custom_responsive_992_bool=”0″ custom_responsive_768_bool=”0″ css_style=”{‘margin-top’:’35px’}_-_json”]We understand leadership and operations. EVERYTHING rises and falls on leadership (John C Maxwell). ALL of our team have either run their own enterprises or been in senior leadership for over a decade. Quick turnaround: 4-8 weeks from start of the search to signed offer. Deep ties in the Canadian leadership community: from our network we have garnered unrivalled access to the top of the top executives across Financial, Technology and O&G markets. Almost 100% fill ratio over 500 searches backed by a 12 month guarantee. We stand behind our work.[/cl_text][/cl_toggle][cl_toggle is_active=”0″ title=”Do you offer a guarantee?”][cl_text custom_typography=”0″ custom_responsive_992_bool=”0″ custom_responsive_768_bool=”0″ css_style=”{‘margin-top’:’35px’}_-_json”]Yes 12 months. So, if during the 12 months following the executives start date, the individual decides to leave the corporation, we will redo the search without further charge.[/cl_text][/cl_toggle][cl_toggle is_active=”0″ title=”How long does the process take?”][cl_text custom_typography=”0″ custom_responsive_992_bool=”0″ custom_responsive_768_bool=”0″ css_style=”{‘margin-top’:’35px’}_-_json”]Most executive/retained search firms around the world take up to 4 months. Whilst this may occasionally be our timeframe for some CEO searches, we’ll generally have found your CEO/EVP/VP/Director within 2-3 months. Because of our satellite reach and operational agility, we generally hit the mark every-time![/cl_text][/cl_toggle][/cl_toggles][/cl_column][/cl_row]
