All hiring decisions matter. At the executive level, the stakes are even higher. That’s why every TalentRISE retained search is partner-led and laser-focused on finding leaders who are the absolute best fit for your business while offering you the flexibility, transparency and value your organization demands.

Our FlexSEARCH offering — an à la carte menu of strategic services for retained executive search engagements — allows you to buy our candidate identification expertise; search methodology, tools and insights; and leadership consultation either as a whole, or as components on flexible terms…and with predictable pricing. This enables you to find, attract and engage C-suite, director, and senior manager positions in the most efficient and effective way possible.

“The searches were tough because of the skill sets we required and also the locations. In fact, in some of the searches, other recruiters had failed, but TalentRISE produced results.”
