Contingent Search

Free to initiate - only pay if you hire.

When working on a contingent basis with Blue Signal, you start with a free consultation. After intake, we will start searching for your job and present you candidates with no up-front costs. Although more costly to hire, this plan comes at no risk to your funds, and you only pay once you have found your perfect candidate.

With today’s talent shortage, companies cannot afford to waste time on qualified talent in such a competitive market. However, with Blue Signal’s Contingent Search, our average search start to placement is 31 days. Not only do we cut the wait time, but we also take a lot of the workload off your hands at no initial cost to you. We pre-screen, cross reference, and conduct initial interviews with each candidate before presenting to you, so you know that your time spent on your search is not wasted.

One of the main objections recruiters face when talking to hiring managers is budgetary. With Blue Signal’s Contingent Search option, you front no cost when establishing a search with our firm, and only pay upon search completion. That way, you pay for what you get – no strings attached.

Working with Blue Signal, you can be sure that your candidate has been vetted through our 12-step interview process, and your own, before ramping them up to hire, reducing the overall risk of a bad hire.

HR Director

Emerging Technology Firm

Blue Signal exceeded my every expectation in a search team. I will not introduce them to competitors — I’m hoping they focus on new markets and remain my secret weapon for unicorn talent.

GM Director

Industrial Technology Firm


Blue Signal understood our hiring needs extraordinarily well. Each candidate forwarded to date has been one worthy of strong consideration. Remarkable, considering I’ve spoken to some 40 to 50 Blue Signal candidates by now. Clearly, significant vetting is done up-front by Blue Signal. In the past, via other providers, I’ve been used to a “hit rate” - of below 50% for truly qualified, considerable candidates. With Blue Signal I have undeniably spent more time interviewing real candidates and less time overall in the hiring process since there’ve been no ‘wasted’ interviews – no “why am I talking to this person?”
