Exclusive service (or retained service) differs from the contingency service in that the task of recruiting for a specific position is exclusive to the one agency. In our opinion, this is a much better method for both client and agency. The client will get a more considered detailed offering of prospective candidates in an agreed timescale. Therefore, one would expect the quality of the candidates to be of a higher standard. The recruitment consultant is assured of getting the commission (subject to a suitable candidate being placed) and is not under time pressure to meet the clients requirements. Some agencies will only operate on an exclusive basis as the non-exclusive service can incur costs for the agent with no guarantee of success. Please be aware that the costs for both Contingency and Exclusive services are roughly the same!
