Pierpoint’s Container Model is what we call a Hybrid: a cross between contingency and retained search.

If you typically use traditional contingency agencies for some of your hiring efforts, you will find our Container model a better solution. The Container model is typically half the cost of contingency and can be applied to one position or many, making it ideal for difficult or specialized positions.
