Orion Project Retained Search

Outsourcing a retained search project helps alleviate internal resourcing pressures. Through incentivising an expert recruitment firm with a global reach and 35 years’ experience in your sector, you will be able to tackle peak activity and hire staff for these difficult to fill roles.

When it comes to staff recruitment, time is money and empty seats do not deliver projects. Direct recruitment is effective, but resourcing is not a linear activity with consistent volume and talent pools are dynamic and difficult to secure. When recruitment becomes a primary concern for a business, it is time to consider a supplementary approach to bolster capability.

When Orion are awarded a retained search, we allocate senior recruitment specialists to deliver candidate shortlists against committed timelines. Our team utilise an extensive range of recruitment methods that we retain to delivery suitable resources for you.
