A very good article that serves to define the difference between contingency recruitment and what we do at Jepson Holt, retained recruitment.

Summed up in one sentence - "I’d take three candidates delivered by a retained recruiter, after a comprehensive market search, over 30 CVs delivered by a gaggle of contingency recruiters, any day of the week".

Please read the article if you are responsible for talent acquisition in your law firm. If we don't place someone for you after you have purchased research and paid a fee it is because what you are looking for does not exist, at least you know though and we can work with you to tailor the search to produce results.
