Retained Search

Retained search is a comprehensive consulting service suited to mission-critical, sensitive, highly specialized, or leadership hires. Retained search consultants act as advisors to their clients and go beyond simple recruitment as a service to guide a search from the initial definition of the role to assisting in the integration of the new hire with the team. Often characterized by their deep understanding of both their client companies and the candidates, retained search consultants possess comprehensive insights that enable them to become close partners with their clients, significantly impacting their success.

As a boutique, The Locke Group is deeply invested in our clients, making us a natural choice to lead their most critical searches. We possess rich knowledge of the industry down to the team and individual level and can offer our clients both valuable intelligence and access to hard-to-reach talent.
