Contingent Recruitment

Rutherford’s contingent recruitment services allows you to gain access to our sizable network and candidates database. 

How Contingency Recruitment Works

Our contingent recruitment service lends itself to a quick-delivery service which is built to meet your short-term recruitment needs. 

​Drawing on years of expertise in compliance, financial crime, legal and cyber security recruitment, Rutherford Search provides to its clients an array of search services, all based on what is best for the firm's needs and overall situation. Retained search, contingent recruitment or even interim services: our recruitment agency adapts its solutions to your needs. 

Rutherford's contingent search services come with the following advantages and processes.​

  • An initial consultation with the client on requirements. This consultation will include a detailed briefing and advice on role positioning and best market approaches.

  • Quick service delivery. We have an extensive network of candidates against all legal and regulatory skillsets: we can then deliver high calibre, pre-qualified, executive-level talent in the most efficient timeframes. 

  • Candidates that mostly came through referrals. 

  • An extensive database search. We maintain and thoroughly search one of the deepest and most sophisticated libraries of top legal and compliance professionals. 

  • Selective advertising. We meticulously choose the most relevant platforms to best promote the client organisation. 

  • Expertise. Our team has over 40 years of experience in identifying and engaging high-quality regulatory and legal talent. We are also one of the UK’s most recognised recruitment suppliers of lawyers and regulatory professionals for leadership and specialist positions. 

  • Our consultants have deep market knowledge and sector experience. 

  • Screening interviews. All of our candidates are interviewed by our Rutherford consultants before being sent over to the client. Only relevant CVs are submitted with full biographies and necessary recruitment information.

  • Full process management. Our team will provide end-to-end recruitment process management, including client and candidate liaison, provision of feedback, scheduling, contract negotiation and our post-start date aftercare program, which reduces the probability of failed hires.

  • Reduced risk on cost for the client. Since contingent hiring is a performance-based model, clients will only pay a recruitment fee if the correct candidate is secured.

Alongside our contingent recruitment services, our recruitment agency also offers Retained Search services alongside Contract and Interim Search Services.
