To better serve our clients’ specific needs, we have developed three separate organizations: PinPoint Solutions, Westport Intl, and Scarlett Surveys. Through these three companies we define the right framework and search time to deliver optimum results while managing client costs. Because we offer a solution based approach versus the typical transactional approach, we build more accountability into the relationships with our clients.
PinPoint Solutions is a premier contingency search firm with over 100 years of combined recruiting expertise on staff. Our combination of experience in third party recruiting firms and in directing internal staffing functions for Fortune 500 organizations gives us a unique perspective and customer orientation not typically found in our industry. We understand the complexity involved in filling a particular opening. Organizational upgrading, diversity, and international expertise are only a few of the issues that may need to be addressed in finding the right candidate. Our Executive Recruiters function as external business partners for the organizations we represent and take a search approach to Contingency.
Our contingency group takes a search approach to every job they work. Our recruiters directly source candidates utilizing our corporate database, job boards, online research tools and cold calling. Identified candidates will be screened and presented to the client based upon the position profile. A critical piece to any contingency assignment is feedback. Direct recruiting is very time consuming, and proper feedback is essential to finding the right skill set. The more engaged our client is the better our results will be. Since our recruiters typically work several contingency assignments at a time, those clients with quick and detailed feedback loops rise to the top of the priority list.
Contingency search has no upfront costs and we are only paid when a candidate is hired. Our typical fee is 25% of first year base salary. We offer a 90-day guarantee: If for any reason the hired candidate does not work out, we will fill the position again for free. This solution is typical for individual contributor and manager level roles. A contingency search has one recruiter assigned to it. The recruiter has access to all of our advanced recruiting tools and our research database. They will be your single point of contact through the entire process. The recruiter assigned to your position will have expertise in the practice area that corresponds with your search.
Function: At PinPoint Solutions, our Recruiters are very much generalists in the field. We pride ourselves on our ability to service each client on a multitude of different openings. Through the years, we have become functional experts and have established strong candidate networks in the following areas experiencing high demand.
Industry: Our organizational expertise has traditionally been in Manufacturing. Most of our resources and networks are geared in this area. However, we do have an in-house research department that can provide additional support and candidate generation on anything outside this industry. See industry chart
