Executive Search Process

Our executive search process is a meticulously crafted journey, designed to identify, engage, and secure top-tier leaders who align seamlessly with your company’s vision and values.

“At Next Genexec Search, we understand the challenges of finding top talent in today’s competitive landscape. That’s why we offer a boutique approach to executive search, focusing on hi-tech industries to deliver unparalleled expertise and results. Unlike larger firms constrained by extensive client lists, our specialized focus allows us to access a wider pool of exceptional candidates. With a commitment to personalized service and tailored solutions, we strive to be your trusted partner in navigating the complexities of talent acquisition.

Performance-Based Search Fees

At NextGen, we believe that the traditional time-based fee structure of large retained executive search firms lacks alignment with actual performance metrics and the success of the hire. With our commitment to transparency and fairness, we propose a performance-based fee model that prioritizes delivering results.

Our fee structure is designed to reflect the effort, complexity, and resources invested in securing the right candidate for your organization. Rather than upfront payments based on arbitrary timelines, our fees are tied to specific milestones that signify progress and success in the search process.

Here's how it works:

Initial Deposit

Upon engagement, a nominal initial deposit secures our services and kickstarts the search process.

Candidate Shortlist Approval

The second invoice is issued when you, the client, receive and approve the candidate shortlist, signaling readiness to proceed with interviews.

Employment Commencement

The final invoice is due upon the commencement of employment for the new hire, ensuring our fees are directly linked to the successful outcome of the search.

Furthermore, our commitment to accuracy and transparency means that we only provide a fee quote after completing a thorough Discovery Step, ensuring that our pricing accurately reflects the scope and complexity of your specific needs.

With NextGen, you can expect clear, honest, and straightforward fees tailored to your unique requirements. Our average fees for different types of searches are as follows:

  • Succession Bench Search: $150,000 to $250,000
  • Retained Search: $75,000 to $150,000
  • Engagement Search: $45,000 to $75,000

Choose NextGen for a fee structure that prioritizes performance and delivers value at every step of the hiring process.”
