A retained executive search will likely cost you a minimum of £10,000 and can cost £100,000 or more — typically one-third of a candidate’s first year total cash compensation. If the cost of not filling the role with the right candidate is significantly higher than the cost of the search, then you may be ready to consider investing in the services of a retained executive search firm.
