Contingency Based Consulting
(No-exclusive search)

Contingency based (or Success based) consulting operates on the same basic principles as Retainer based consulting, but involves a different level of commitment from the client and from SMC. In a contingency search, the client chooses not to use SMC exclusively, and as such, there is no up front fee paid to SMC. Our fee is completely dependent on the efficacy of our search, and there is no commitment on your part to hire, or even meet, any candidate we introduce.

Due to the success based nature of the search, candidates introduced in a contingency search may be introduced to other clients as well. This approach is often used to augment an existing Human Resources department, without committing to a single outside agency.
