Executive Retained and Exclusive Search

Executive retained and exclusive search is the foundation of BioSearch's service offerings. With its confidential search process, BioSearch takes a personalized approach to presenting the unique talent required for these key positions. Leveraging a proprietary database of more than 20,000 respected biotechnology and pharmaceutical professionals, BioSearch uses a 360-degree approach that matches candidates to your unique job requirements.

Milestone-Accountable and Results-Based Approach to Your Retained Search

Our fee structure is based on performance milestones, which means results precede payment. The BioSearch model is one of shared risk, and payments are based on three milestones: (1) initiation of the contract, (2) presentation of qualified candidates who are ideally matched to the position, and (3) successful completion of the search.

BioSearch can augment your talent acquisition process with contingency recruiting - a service that allows BioSearch to fill your mid-level positions on a non-exclusive basis. Our meticulous approach to sourcing for passive and highly qualified candidates will provide you with timely placements who are prepared to join your team now - with the passion to grow into key managers and leaders.
