Container Search Recruiting

A Container Search is the best of Retained and Contingent search combined. You’ll receive unparalleled service under a shared-risk model. The client pays an engagement fee upfront and Purple Tree guarantees three exceptional candidates to choose from. If we fail to deliver, your engagement fee is returned

We begin with intensive research into your company to understand your goals and the challenges you face. Next, we develop a strategy to attract candidates who will find long-term fulfillment as a member of your team. We will interview all key stakeholders to understand their concerns and expectations then we’ll work with your HR department to ensure efficiency and cooperation throughout the process. If requested, we visit your facilities and interview executives in-person.

When to use a container search model

Your search is taking too long

If your search has been open more than three months and you’ve found few or no viable candidates, a Container Search may be appropriate. A container search model provides the benefits of our in-depth search services and a guarantee that you’ll receive qualified candidates in about 4 weeks.

Your competition is fierce

If the market is competitive for your talent pool, a container search is the right choice. The best talent is rarely found on Monster or Yahoo job boards. Purple Tree Recruiting’s comprehensive service helps you locate and attract highly-skilled candidates in competitive industries.

Your need passive candidates

Many organizations seek to hire candidates who aren’t currently active in the market. Often these high-performing individuals are the most valuable and highly sought after in the industry. If you’re struggling to access and recruit these ideal candidates, container search is a perfect option.

Your position is difficult or complex

If you require comprehensive support in hiring top industry talent for a complex role, Purple Tree’s container search offers the combination of value and service. Whether your challenges come from within or without, Purple Tree will use data, communication, and technology to navigate obstacles and turn problems into opportunities.
