Understanding Our Service Model


A Customized Approach to Recruitment

When you set out to hire mid-level to C-suite personnel, you have three basic options. You can recruit in-house using your HR department, hire an executive search firm, or utilize contingent recruiters.

When you outsource your recruitment the traditional options of contingency and retained firms can leave you choosing between high-retainer fees and ill-fitting candidates. This is why we employ a different service model.

More Economical Than a Retained Search Firm, More Focused Than a Contingent Search Group

Specializing in recruiting for accounting, finance, human resources, marketing, and sales operations roles, Menlo Partners Staffing is a container firm, a hybrid between contingent search and retained search recruitment models.

Our employer-paid fee is contingent upon hiring one of our applicants, which is a percentage of the first year’s annualized salary. To start your search process, we require a non-refundable deposit. The deposit is then applied to your invoice when you make a hire.

Benefits to Our Hybrid Service Model

Here are a few reasons to make us your placement agency partner of choice:

  • We combine the consultancy, high touch, and personalized service elements of retained search firms with a more affordable fee structure. Our pricing is scalable, which allows for greater application throughout an organization.
  • Every position is sourced from scratch for tailored, on-target results. Potential candidates are screened for each individual role. We don’t just send along a job description and website for review; we match job seekers to your opportunity specifically.
  • With limited client engagements, you have our undivided attention. We don’t take a volume-based approach to orders.
  • Our people first” approach creates a better candidate experience, resulting in applicants with higher commitment levels throughout the search process.

Let us help you find the perfect candidate.
