Direct placement solutions

ConnectPoint Search Group offers you two different approaches to direct placement:

Priority Search

This innovative solution combines the power of a retained search with the flexibility and low risk of a contingency search. It’s a partnering arrangement, where we—and you—make mutual commitments to optimize the effectiveness of the search and ensure that you see the best candidates in the agreed-upon timeframe. ConnectPoint Search Group Priority Search includes:

  • Dedicated ConnectPoint Search Group time and resources to ensure the success of your project.
  • In-depth interviews of candidates before they are submitted to you.
  • A guarantee, beyond our standard, that is commensurate with our mutual investment.
  • Complete background checks, including credit history, driving record, criminal history, reference checks, and education verification.
  • Skill assessments.
  • Custom company/position candidate profile assessments.
  • Interview preparation and debriefing assistance.
  • Offer and acceptance negotiation assistance.
  • Candidate coaching against accepting a counter-offer.

Contingency Search

This risk-free search option gives you access to ConnectPoint Search Group’s deep pool of candidate relationships, search expertise, and more than 75 years of combined Connector team experience. Contingency search includes:

  • No cost unless you hire one of our candidates.
  • In-depth interviews of candidates before they are presented to you.
  • Complete reference checks.
  • Interview preparation and debriefing assistance.
  • Offer and acceptance negotiation assistance.
  • Candidate coaching against accepting a counter-offer.
  • A 90-day replacement or pro-rated refund guarantee, provided payment within ten days of hire.

Contract staffing solutions

We shine when it’s crunch time. You know what we’re talking about: You’ve got a critical project that demands extra headcount. You need someone to step in when one of your people is away, or when you’re searching for their replacement. Or perhaps your business cycles with the seasons. For as many reasons as you may need contract workers, ConnectPoint Search Group is your go-to resource for finding them. Our Connectors span diverse practice areas—in accounting, finance, IT, human resources, marketing, administration, and more—and have deep domain expertise and local market experience (averaging 13 years or more), allowing them to find the exact candidates who will fit your project, your company, and your culture. You get one Connector as your single point of contact, but behind the scenes, you actually get them all, working together as a winning team.

We meet, screen, interview, and reference check every contract candidate we present, and background check every candidate we place on contract, all at our own expense. Most are either professionals we work with on an ongoing basis, or direct hire candidates with whom we already have relationships. No one else has such powerful inside-track connections to put to work for you.

Plus, our contract staffing solutions make it, well, ridiculously easy to get started. We—not you—function as the employer of record. We handle all payroll functions. We pay all payroll taxes, professional and general liability insurance, workers compensation, and unemployment benefits. You simply pay an hourly rate, while getting the convenience of a weekly invoice, and the added savings and flexibility of turning fixed costs into variable ones.

If you’d like to learn more—and see real-life examples of bill rates, pay rates, and costs for a contract professional—simply contact us. We’d be happy to help.
