Retained Partnership

At IDEX Consulting, we understand the cost and business implications of getting a key appointment wrong, especially in a senior appointment or key hire. So to combat this, we developed our Partnership (Retained) Solution. A fully tailored recruitment solution, designed to provide you with the best market insight and intelligence, allowing you to make the right hiring decision, ensuring you get the best person for the job.

Working in partnership with IDEX, we will ensure that you have full control of the message being communicated to the market and that you gain access to the “passive” talent in the market, allowing you a greater choice of candidates than traditional recruitment solutions.

Key Benefits of IDEX Advanced Solutions:

  • Your expert Consultant will be focused purely on your project, without distraction, to ensure that every capable candidate is mapped out for you.
  • You will be provided with a full breakdown of suitable individuals, both active in the market and the "hidden" talent, suitable individuals who are not active "fly below the radar", allowing you a wider choice of the best candidates. 
  • Candidates generated during your retained search are often not “active” and will remain exclusive to your process, reducing the competition for this talent.
  • We create a bespoke “Candidate Information Pack” detailing your company’s culture, ethos, challenges and goals. This creates a positive candidate journey and ensures the candidate is fully committed to the process, reducing the risk of losing your chosen candidate.
  • Option to access to our bespoke suite of technology, including Video CV's and Video Interviews, to save you further time in the process.
  • You can have a dual branded campaign created for you, both on and offline to maximise the exposure of the vacancy.
  • Access to a suite of Psychometric tests to scientifically back up your interview process.
  • For larger volume hires, we are able to offer the creation of a Microsite, a dedicated recruitment site to streamline the recruitment process further.
  • The process is uniquely designed to maximise the result, resulting in a more time / cost efficient process and minimum impact to your business throughout.
