Retained executive search represents a clear commitment from both sides and sends a strong message that the hiring company highly values the opportunity.

When time, complexity and confidentiality are critical, retained search is a sound option, and clients and candidates alike trust Mode 3 Executive Search.

We have helped negotiate advancing career moves for prominent business executives within freight forwarding, logistics, supply chain & shipping.

Retained search is particularly appropriate when the need is urgent, the hire will have a significant impact on company performance, or new opportunities emerge that must be quickly addressed. We understand and thrive in that environment.

We only present retained search opportunities that truly fit with the needs and the goals of both the candidates and the hiring company. As such, we consistently provide the best in speed, quality and successful performance outcomes.

Employers often feel that the amount of time and effort invested in recruiting good people means they must be gaining access to the best talent ‘on’ the market. However if you are not using a credible, capable head-hunter as a primary recruitment strategy for key appointments, then you are unlikely to be hiring the best talent ‘in’ the market.

Research suggests that at any one time as much as 80% of workers are ‘passive candidates’. That is to say that they are not actively seeking to move jobs, but would happily consider an opportunity if the circumstances were right.

By questioning common convention we have developed a pricing model that challenges the methodologies and out of date fee structures of traditional retained search firms. This enables us to eliminate a hugely significant proportion of up-front costs and risk, with the majority of our fee centred on a successful outcome.
