Retained Search


We recognise that sometimes key appointments require a more creative and search led approach depending upon their sensitivity, complexity and availability in an ever challenging candidate climate. 


Coyne & Associates’ model is centered around talent IN the market not just ON the market, thus ensuring we identify the best possible candidate profile in the appropriate vertical.  Client collaboration is key in this instance and we really tune into your business, understand what good looks like in your organisation and ensure we deliver the best solution.  As part of the briefing we will undertake industry analysis, cultural assessment and the evaluation of existing senior leaders and management dynamics.


Coyne & Associates has the capability to undertake a calculated, targeted and retained campaign to deliver a suitable shortlist.  Retained search is a focused, proactive method of recruitment, which guarantees the completion of the hiring process in a defined and agreed timescale.  A key feature of our retained search is the allocation of our time and resources to the campaign in question.  Priced according to individual customers unlike traditional search firms, our retained fee structure is weighted heavily to success. 


​Additional benefits to our Retained Search model include:

  • ​Data on the size and scope of your targeted talent pool
  • ​Market intelligence on your competitors - their services, product portfolio, business strategies
  • ​A true indication of your EVP for branding purposes
  • ​An informal, but up-to-date customised remuneration guide
