Contingency Search

Contingency search, where payment is on successful delivery, is a service often in use for vacancies where the goal is delivering a permanent or interim hire.

ConsultRPM's process will quickly lead to successfully identifying and delivering quality candidates, individually and extensively qualified for the particular position/s concerned.

To ensure we connect with the best talent every time we utilise a combination of the following:

  • Market networking and head hunting
  • Use of our existing candidate database and contacts
  • On and off line advertising, targeted for each role
  • Market contact referrals

We maintain a high quality and extensive database which is continually being added to by registering specialist professionals from the market. We remain in close contact with our candidate contacts in order to allow us to deliver on our interim requirements in a matter of hours and often several days for permanent positions.

Within each of our specialist areas we have spent and continue to spend significant amounts of time researching and mapping the best talent within them, giving us a head start when initiating any vacancy or campaign.

Often our clients will use our services exclusively in order to allow us to approach the best and most appropriate candidates for the opportunity, bringing together all of our findings in-house first before presenting the very best shortlist available. The result gives a selection of candidates to choose from, all who have the skills and experience required, typically doing the same role at a competitor and interested in the vacancy proposed.

We have the ability to advise on the specialist market concerned, using our intellectual property and experience to ensure quality advice to our clients. Our track record of delivering top talent is excellent, please see referrals, this often consists of providing results on the most challenging of specifications in the particular sector.

If you wish to discuss a current or proposed requirement with us please call or email us now, we look forward to working with you.

Our Clients


ConsultRPM have filled at least 10 compensation and reward vacancies in our team over the last few years, at all levels. They are my supplier of choice and I heartily recommend their service, they communicate extremely well and source quality candidates for my roles. In short they always seem to realise what I need and find the person quickly and effectively with the minimum of interviews required for each placement - what more could I ask.

Head of Reward, Financial Services

ConsultRPM's Search & Selection team have filled our ***** Director position successfully. They provided the shortlist before the deadline, all of whom were excellent applicants and from which we have attracted an excellent win from *****. We are very pleased with the results and I will recommend ConsultRPM in the future to my contacts.

Managing Director, Investment Bank

I have used ConsultRPM twice now in two months, the firm having been recommended by a contact who had used them for several years he told me. The first role, having a highly specialised skill set had eluded our normal suppliers. Within three days we had a great candidate at interview and hired them the next day, they have worked out excellently and we have another person waiting to start now in an Operations Manager position. I will definitely be asking them to source other staff and am happy to speak with others to confirm their knowledge and ability to provide the right people to date.

Pensions sector

ConsultRPM has provided reliable and consistent applicants for our project team vacancies over the last 4 years, now becoming our exclusive supplier and "go to" agency for all roles. Their guarantee, which appears to be backed up in practice gives me peace of mind that if there was ever a problem they would make sure they fix it. Not to mention the fact they really help us to choose the best fit and have advised me to hire or not to hire based on thorough understanding of the candidates they represent. If I want to move roles in the future I would ask them for their help first, as everyone we have hired has been complimentary about the service given.

HR Consulting

ConsultRPM have given a great service to my recruitment needs, we have doubled the size of our specialist sales team in 18 months. At least 60% of those staff were from ConsultRPM who have provided the strongest performing new members from our competitors to date. I would have no problem in recommending them as understanding what we need and getting it right first time, an unusual quality!
