Exclusive Contingency

Exclusive Digital Marketing contingency recruiting search is a logical and attractive combination of both contingency and retained fee structures. This is among the best type of working relationships. This type of digital marketing recruitment is strongly recommended when you prefer a contractually committed and fully engaged search relationship, but you do not want to commit to a fully retained search fee structure.


In the digital marketing contingency search, the client pays an engagement fee of $5,000 prior to the start of a search. The balance of the fee becomes due after the candidate begins employment. The service charge is 30% of the candidate’s first year’s compensation.

Other Expenses

We do pass on “at cost”  client approved expenses: These are inclusive of the digital marketing candidate’s travel to interview at the client, client requested job advertising, background check, degree verification, drug tests, etc.

We do not charge “administrative fees” to cover phone charges, printing, typing, copying, etc in our digital marketing searches. We view these as normal and customary parts of the service we provide.
