Retained search

Retained Campaign Methodology

A retained search campaign is a true partnership between TPP and your organisation. It maximises the proactive work we can dedicate to the search, ensuring we reach into as many networks as necessary through face-to-face meetings, telephone and e-marketing. This approach includes the following (which can be tailored to your preferences): 

  1. We will meet with all relevant parties to discuss your vision for these roles. A timetable is agreed, the job description finalised, and advertising options discussed (TPP market, as standard, all job opportunities online both on job boards and on professional/social media.

  2. We will take these roles to market, contacting people both already known to us and freshly discovered through extensive research. In this period we encourage applications and invite the most relevant to a meeting with us. This ensures that by the time we present our candidates to you they have all been met, interviewed and assessed, not just for their skills but also for their personality fit and empathy for the goals of your organisation. We will also have checked their legal status regarding ‘ability to work’ and qualifications in line with UK law and the more extensive TPP terms of business.

  3. We present a long-list of the most suitable candidates to your selection panel with a report containing a summary of all notes and observations from our assessments. Together we will examine all candidates in turn and help you to make a decision of whom you would like to meet at interview. TPP will then update the successful candidates and prepare them for interview with you, as well as manage the unsuccessful candidates and provide them with useful feedback for their future applications. Whether applicants are successful or not, TPP ensures their application experience is a positive one.

  4. We will continue to work with you and the candidates throughout the process. We are able to co-ordinate psychometric assessments. Once a candidate is decided upon, TPP will lead the offer process and then remain in contact with you and your new staff member for a minimum of six months to help you develop your partnership from its early stages into a productive and proactive working relationship.
