Parade can provide you with a variety of professionals that have targeted skill sets on a per-project basis. That means you don’t have to go through the pains of hiring and firing as workloads fluctuate. More importantly, you can intelligently manage your overhead and bring in professionals when they are needed to accomplish any phase of a project.
Besides our Crown retained search platform, all other searches are performed on a contingent basis. Meaning, we only collect a fee if we successfully place a qualified candidate. We have a set fee for direct placements or permanent hires. However, when hiring a contract consultant, each position and candidate will differ depending on skill set, duration, budget and volume. We make sure that consultants are paid reasonably and that you are getting the maximum return on your investment.
It starts with a brief conversation to get a better understanding of your firm’s culture, values and goals and to see how our services best suit your interests. We’re extremely confident that our flexible approach and resources can be a welcomed asset to any firm.
We understand how rapidly things can change in this industry and have experience placing top candidates quickly. The time frame for successfully finding the right employee will vary based on our current employee base and your specific needs. We can alter the process based on the timeline at hand, but we always remain committed to placing select, qualified people.
We can provide a consultant for as short a period as one day, but typically it makes financial sense for both of our firms to work with consultants for at least one week.
We conduct thorough reference checks for each candidate. Some clients also request a drug screen, criminal background check or other screenings for security purposes which we can also provide for a fee.
Our contract-to-hire option provides an opportunity for you to work with an employee and determine if they are someone you want to hire permanently. If you are not satisfied with an employee, we will replace them quickly to ensure that your projects don’t suffer. We also offer guarantees to protect your financial interests for permanent hires.
