Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How do your accounting and finance search services work?

A typical engagement starts with clarifying the positions you need to fill and discussing your company’s unique requirements before building job descriptions requesting skill sets aligned to your key business objectives. Then, we get to work – we use our network to find promising candidates and perform a vetting process designed to narrow the pool of job seekers to the most qualified and motivated applicants.

Once we have refined the prospect list, we walk you and the applicants through the interview process, keeping both parties engaged and informed at every step to ensure a good experience. Finally, once you have identified a desirable applicant, we help you check their references and negotiate a compelling yet fair compensation arrangement.

How much do financial executive search services cost?

We offer financial executive search services under an exclusive contingency search model. In other words, our clients hire us to do the work of finding and recruiting candidates and only hire applicants that are the result of our mutual efforts. This approach ensures a respectful and collaborative executive search experience because both parties have an equal stake in the project’s success.

We charge a 10% monthly retainer fee up-front, then 50% of the balance when the candidate begins employment, and the remainder after they have completed 90-days of employment. Our total fee varies depending on the position and compensation.

The CEO’s Right Hand also offers a 90-day guarantee. If a candidate we place is terminated within 90-days, either voluntarily or involuntarily, we will find a replacement candidate at no additional cost.
