Executive Retained Search
|Business moves fast, so do we. As Minnesota-based executive recruiters, we have access to the most highly qualified, fully vetted, local candidates. We’re very persistent in our search for performers in the executive space. Our rigorous sourcing and evaluation process can dramatically reduce the amount of time it takes to hire the right talent.
Typically, the retained search is ideal when focusing on C-suite, officer-level positions, and other roles that are expected to deliver immediate lift and long-term value to the organization. Here is our advice on how to choose the right recruiter contract. Finding, vetting, and securing the perfect candidate at the executive level
Benefits Of A Retained Executive Recruiting Contract
With a retained recruiting agreement in place, you unleash the full force of your recruiter to assess and rank all potential candidates, including your own internal staff. At SkyWater, we use a “Short List” process to rapidly and successfully identify the true finalists for a position. We look at organizational vision and workplace culture as well as job requirements. That allows us to sift through our vast networks of top talent, bringing in only those individuals who can hit the ground running and make a long-term, positive impact within your organization.
When you enter into a retained contract with a reputable headhunter, you’ve hired a recruiting expert who will not only put their all into finding you the best candidate, they’ll be committed to making your team strong. You’re the priority, above any contingent searches. Keep in mind: reputable retained recruiters are invested in building a long-term partnership with you that will, in turn, result in your glowing endorsements of them to others.
What We Hear From Our Clients
We’ll find, vet, and secure executive talent with the skill set you’re looking for – but we won’t overwhelm you with a multitude of candidates. You’ll only see your best choices based on your specific requirements and company culture. Our goal is to make the recruiting and hiring process more focused, efficient, and effective. We help you start with your Short List ™.

“Julie was an absolute delight to work with. She presented exceptional candidates that were right on point for what we were looking for. Her follow-up and ongoing responsiveness were also exemplary. I don’t normally use placement firms for hiring but if we were ever to have a need again, I would definitely call Julie.”
