At Summit Search Solutions, we recognize that no two organizations are exactly alike, and that our clients may have different needs at different times or for different roles. Our tiered service options, tailored for nonprofit and higher education recruiting, enable clients to customize the level of support we provide to suit their specific circumstances and preferences. Following is an overview of the service options we offer. Download the printable PDF here.
Full-Service. Guaranteed. The Comprehensive option is most often selected for high level executive searches in complex environments. These searches often involve work with multiple stakeholder groups (Board of Directors, hiring authority, search committee, etc.) The process begins with on-site listening sessions and proceeds through prospectus development, advertising, passive candidate outreach, development of the candidate pool, assessment, due diligence for finalist candidates, selection, negotiation, and onboarding. The search consultant is typically on-site multiple times during the process and plays a hands-on role with the search committee and hiring executives. This model can be implemented virtually as well. The fee is a percentage of starting compensation or a fixed fee. There are no additional administrative fees. Expenses are charged back at cost. This service is guaranteed.
Customized Search. Unique to the Industry. Sourcing Plus is a modified search that focuses on marketing the position, attracting a high-quality candidate pool, and working with the client and/or search committee in selecting the best candidates to pursue. Sourcing Plus follows the comprehensive model up through the selection of finalist candidates. After finalists are selected, the client takes the lead in managing pieces of the search. Services are provided on an hourly or fixed-fee basis. There are no additional administrative fees. Consultant travel to your site is optional and charged back at cost. Expenses are charged back at cost. Sourcing Plus offers a partial guarantee.
Build the candidate pool for search success. Sourcing Basic focuses on marketing the opportunity and building the candidate pool. Candidates that are submitted to the client are pre-qualified based on key criteria jointly determined by the client and Summit. Summit leads the process up through the client’s selection of semi-finalist candidates. Services are provided on an hourly or fixed-fee basis. This service is offered virtually. Expenses are charged back at cost. Sourcing Basic does not include a guarantee, but we will negotiate a discounted rate to continue sourcing if it is necessary.
