Client Services
Contingency and Retained Search for Apparel, Textiles and Nonwovens
Coley Company delivers both contingency and retained search services. Manager to Director level searches are typically handled on a contingency basis. Vice President and C-level position searches are best handled on a retained basis.

Our process allows us to find that true ‘A-Player’ required for your team to succeed. We work closely with you to clearly define the tangible and intangible skills needed for the position — a critical step in achieving the highest level of success for our clients.
Contingency Search
Coley Company provides more detailed and thorough contingency search services than other firms. While working on a contingency basis, the last thing you need is more resumes of candidates that do not fit your position. We typically recommend one or two qualified candidates for your opening.

When you consider our candidates, you can be sure they have the skills and track record you seek. Our referrals are successful due to our thorough background investigations. We call our candidates references from their previous 10 years of work experience before an offer is made. We will provide you with a complete summary of their reference comments highlighting the candidate's strengths and weaknesses.

Retained Search
  • Need the highest search intelligence in the marketplace?
  • Have a mission critical search that must be handled confidentially?
  • Need to let the industry know your search is very critical?
If so, then our retained search services are your best option.

The Coley Company retained search process is unique. We only require an engagement fee to be paid at the beginning of the search process. The balance of our fee is paid once the candidate starts to work for your team. We earn our referral fee after we provide the results you are seeking.
