What makes retained search different from other types of executive search?

Retained search is distinct in its focus on mid-level positions that present specific challenges, such as niche skill sets or roles in challenging locations. While executive search is more targeted towards senior-level roles like C-suite and directors, involving a more in-depth assessment process, both retained and executive searches are highly tailored. Retained search is especially useful for confidential hires, offering a dedicated approach to meet these unique demands.
