Under our retainer agreement, our search process and your new key hire's successful fit are both guaranteed.


Mitigating the risks you take

When the positions you need to fill are not quite as critical to the future of your organization and a bit less urgent, contingent searches may be the perfect road to acquiring stand-out talent. It is a flexible option suited for small and growing businesses.

With our Contingent Search option, Headwaters Search taps into our existing network of known candidates who have the skillset, motivation and cultural fit you require. When we find an exceptional candidate who matches your requirements, your new hire's success is guaranteed for thirty days or we repeat the process at no additional charge.
