The field of organ transplant medicine is a specialized field that requires your hiring team to have a basic understanding of the world of organ transplant. Retained search simply means we charge an upfront fee to our client (to begin the process) to conduct a comprehensive & measured search. Instead of contingency search, we’ll work for you directly to fill the vacant position within your organ transplant team. We will operate on an exclusive basis meaning the job will only be filled through our transplant staffing agency. Our team of recruiters work very closely with you and will take their time and use an agreed methodology to find the best person for the job. The process is usually rigorous with a shortlist of anything from three to ten names being presented before interviews commence. In a perfect world, Transplant Recruiters, Inc will be able to present at least five candidates with the ideal skills, location, salary, etc. and all the client has to do is pick the one(s) they like the most.
Most clients reserve retained contracts when they are looking to fill high profile positions like transplant administrator/director, program managers, surgeons, or physicians (hepatologists, pulmonologists, nephrologists, pharmacists etc) or other senior positions within the program and sometimes when all other cheaper search options have been exhausted.
