For senior level roles, our clients often prefer to work with Recruiters who have performed in the past for them utilizing a retained or contained agreement. By working exclusively with one firm on such searches, our valued client receives a higher level of service. With all methods, retained, contained, and contingency, clients have come to rely on Burrell Associates  to provide not just resumes, but also insightful, consultative information about the market in general.

Executive Retained –  Executive Search provides companies with a dedicated resource to find best-in-class executive talent with the qualifications and experience directly in response to a career opportunity with one of our exclusive corporate clients.
