We take away the uncertainty and unpredictability of output that a standard recruitment firm delivers by presenting tailored retained search and selection services through unrivalled data mapping techniques.  We also guarantee each hire for 12-months to each of our select clients in the Financial Services sector.  

Imperium Commodity Search is a specialist in recruitment project mapping/project management and offer a full 360 degree managed recruitment service, taking ownership of advertising, sourcing and candidate negotiations/on-boarding.  We believe the contingency market can often represent an over-brokered and under-serviced recruitment model that leads to speed over quality and often a race to the bottom.  Our retained search solution offers our clients a full partnership on strategic and critical hires where we take the full responsibility of getting the right candidate on the desk in a time-efficient manner.

Imperium Commodity Search operates on a strict framework and workflow for our clients utilising our retained search function.  Prior to any search taking place, we take time to meet our clients and understand their business structure, culture and what makes them tick to ensure that we are not only resourcing the best passive talent in the market, but that we are screening our candidates on a fit way beyond their CV.  A true recruitment partner has to be able to extend a brand as though they are one, and only with a true understanding of the brand can they begin to provide a true value added and suitable recruitment solution. 

Our retained searches consist of an end to end, consultative and surgical level approach. Let us be clear; retained searches guarantee a dedicated team of consultants, headhunters and researchers, specific to your firm and hire, until we have placed the position with you.  

Our consultants are proud to have a 100% fill rate on retained searches.

We predominantly reach out to candidates directly for mandates that we are working on and only advertise roles to ensure our clients have full visibility of the talent landscape for shortlisting.  

Once engaged on a particular position we support all candidates throughout the recruitment process providing a full briefing on the opportunity, the company and all of the people involved in the hiring process.
