How It Started.
With technology disrupting the industry, new competitors entering the market, increased demand for equality, diversity and privacy and a shift in client expectations - how can executive search firms and executive recruiters remain competitive and top of mind?
Over the last 12 years, we have watched as executive search firms and executive recruiters approached marketing as an inconsistent stop and go practice with a patchwork of initiatives and campaigns, only to yield little to no results.
So we decided to change that.
How We Got Here.
With over 12 years within the executive search and executive recruitment industry, we saw this skills gap within almost every search firm. There was a need and a place for marketing in search, but not on a full-time basis. So we took our years of marketing expertise, fueled by our entrepreneurial spirit, and brought marketing as a service exclusively to search firms on a retainer, per-project or subscription basis.
We work exclusively with boutique executive search firms or independent executive recruiters to help support their marketing. We believe that specialization will always win, and this is why our core focus and client base is specialized search firms - not generalists.
Retaindly offers digital marketing services for executive search firms and independent executive recruiters including:
