Retained and Contingent Search

Our retained and contingent search practice delivers game-changing talent who bring fresh perspectives, enhance your team culture, boost  execution, and who can help launch new products and services.  Our repeat business and referrals tell us we’re doing something right and we encourage you to ask our clients directly.

Flexible Arrangements

We offer several tiers of packages that balance fees, services, guarantees, and number of hires, so we can find a solution that works for you.

Design for Success

When we initiate a search we go deep with the hiring manager and team to understand business needs, personalities and culture, and the ideal candidate profile. We co-create compelling candidate information packages, employer branding content, interview processes, onboarding program design and/or leadership coaching. This highly collaborative and extended recruitment cycle not only identifies the best talent, it creates “white glove” candidate experiences and improves overall candidate success.

Our recruiters are experienced and carry a reasonable workload, allowing them to make quick progress on your critical hires.

  • As a result, most hiring managers want to meet most of our presented candidates, giving you greater choice.
  • We also offer valid & reliable assessments to help you select between your top candidates, boosting your success rate with new hires and helping you hit your goals.
  • Our retained packages include onboarding program design and/or leadership coaching for the new hire and/or hiring manager. This ensures a faster time to contribution, greater retention, long-term success, and stronger employer brand. Contingent packages may add these services for a fee.

“Recruitment is a challenge when you’re a rapidly growing tech firm in the hyper competitive market of Vancouver. To meet this challenge, we’ve partnered closely with Mark at Adaptive Talent to grow our world-class creative team.

Mark has spent the time up front to ensure he understands our business, our culture, and what makes a great Finger Fooder. He has acted as an extension of our brand at every interaction, growing awareness of Finger Food Studios throughout the Greater Vancouver area. He has been flexible in ramping up and down recruitment efforts, has acted quickly on mission critical needs, and has provided guidance and advice in navigating the labour market.

The creative team here at Finger Food Studios has grown tremendously in the last couple of years, as we adapt to the ever-changing world of AR/VR/IoT and more. Our relationship with Mark and Adaptive Talent has been a vital factor in us building one the best creative teams in the city.”
