In an age of digital transformation, technology companies are growing more rapidly than ever.
According to studies from Tech Republic, 67% of tech hiring managers said they wanted to increase their headcount in 2019, yet 41% struggle to find talent with the right skills.
The challenge becomes even greater when you start looking at senior-level employees like CIOs, CTOs, and VPs. The more demand you have for people capable of taking on leadership roles in things like Digital Automation, Salesforce, and even HCM operation, the harder it is to fill the gaps in your team.
Specialist recruitment companies like Resource on Demand are on-hand to help today’s tech organisations thrive in a skills-short environment. What’s more, to give you even more opportunities to find the right people for your team, we’re now offering a different kind of recruitment assistance: retained executive search.
What is Retained Executive Search?
The retained executive search service from ROD is an extension of the high-quality executive search we’ve always offered our clients.
The difference between executive search, and retained executive search is that when you keep our services, you develop an ongoing relationship with the ROD team, complete with guidance that comes directly from our founder, Lee Durrant.
Our retained executive search service isn’t just about filling a single role in your team but making sure you have a recruitment partner by your side to support every step of your growth. If, like many tech businesses today, you’re looking for opportunities to grow and expand your headcount, ROD retained executive search may be the key.
In exchange for a retainer fee, we’ll have an exclusive contract with your organisation, which allows us to be your eyes and ears in the tech industry, constantly searching for candidates to fill both your available roles and your talent pipeline.
ROD can be your first point of contact when it comes to building your team, both now and in the future.
Why Consider Retained Executive Search?
ROD has always been committed to providing our clients and candidates with the best possible tech recruitment experience. Through the development of our retained executive search service, we can assist you in overcoming a range of common pain points.
For instance, if you’re the entrepreneur behind a new tech startup, an experienced C-Suite will empower you to accelerate your growth and scale your business up. ROD’s retained executive search service will ensure you can access the CIO, CTOs, and experienced CEOs you need to bring your vision to life.
On the other hand, if you’re in the process of scaling an existing company, having a retained executive search service available to you will ensure that you don’t have to worry about finding the extra talent you need for consistent growth. The ROD team will continuously be working to find new senior candidates for your pipeline.
Retained executive search services:
- Provide access to both passive and active candidates with the skills you need to grow your business.
- Offer in-depth background knowledge into the tech space. ROD’s co-founder, Lee Durrant, will be working directly with you to find the right talent. He has more than 17,000 followers on LinkedIn, and over 2 decades of experience in tech recruitment.
- Help you prepare for long-term growth by ensuring you always have access to a diverse range of talented candidates to choose from.
Your retained executive search service from ROD can even subtly find replacements for senior executives that are no longer performing or people who are preparing to leave your business. We handle the search process with care, reducing the risk of disruption to your workforce.
