After more than a decade working with leaders at the CIO, CTO, VP, and Director level, WTS is uniquely positioned to support Executive Searches in Information Technology. Unlike our retained search counterparts, WTS’s Executive Search Team works exclusively on Contingency and Contained searches, affording our clients a lower cost per hire and greater flexibility in the hiring process. Given that experts estimate that Retained Searches are successfully completed less than 70% of the time, we believe a more flexible and cost effective approach makes sense for you, our customer.

Contingency Search

Engaging our team of seasoned search professionals on a contingency search is exceptionally easy – so easy that we can get started on your search in just three easy steps:

  • Partner with a talented Account Executive who will work with you to define parameters and goals for a successful search.
  • Execute a Contingency Search Fee Agreement
  • Let our team do the leg work of identifying, engaging, qualifying, and delivering outstanding talent

That’s it. Our team will narrow down the talent pool to a present a focused group of qualified applicants, and work with you as you interview candidates and iterate through the hiring process. The end result is a flexible, affordable, and highly effective hiring solution that works with you and your business goals. And the best part – you only pay if we deliver!

Contained Search

Looking for a higher level of commitment and focus from your staffing partner without the enormous commitment of a retained search fee agreement? Our Contained Search model offers the best of both worlds – a fully committed and transparent recruiting model and a fee that is predominantly deferred to the end of the hiring process. Our approach to Contained Search is simple, affordable, and highly effective:

  • Partner with a talented Account Executive who will work with you to define parameters and goals for a successful search.
  • Execute a Contained Search Fee Agreement and make a 20% deposit against the estimated placement fee.
  • Engage with the Assigned Search Specialist who will partner with you through the hiring process and make sure we’re delivering exactly what you’re looking for in a technology executive.
  • Receive weekly search updates, status reports, and profile reviews as we iterate towards an ideal candidate and successful hire.
  • Select your new technology executive and close out the search process

Not only is our model exceptionally effective, but our Contained Search clients also enjoy the peace of mind that comes with a 120 Day Unconditional Guarantee – if the applicant doesn’t work out in the first 120 days – for any reason – we’ll find a replacement or refund the contingency portion of our fee. Guaranteed. Ahhh…doesn’t that feel better!
