Retained Search

No margin for error.

When working on a retained basis with Blue Signal, you can expect top-tier service and a guarantee on your search fulfillment. If you grant our firm exclusivity, we can prioritize your search and ensure the best coverage for your business needs.

With today’s job market, companies cannot afford to hold out on qualified, exceptional talent based on cost alone. However, with Blue Signal’s Retained Search you pay the lowest overall price per hire.

After agreeing on search terms, you pay a small fee upfront to retain us in conducting the search. The remainder of the fee isn’t due until the start date of your perfect hire. This service is the best deal for your dollar – containing all the same services we offer to each of our clients, but with a bigger guarantee on ROI.

Blue Signal’s retained search division guarantees job fulfillment within 25 days – meaning more money back in your pocket. Some searches can take months to fill when you use other firms. With our retainer search division, you operate with Blue Signal on an exclusive basis. This means you receive additional search services and prioritization on your open requirement. This 25-days-or-less turn around means a quicker time to hire, faster time to productivity, and overall better satisfaction rates for hiring managers and candidates.

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?”
