Search Guarantee Options & Costs

Search Guarantee Options & Costs

Searches in positions of leadership in the enrollment arena have never been more critical to the future financial stability of your college or university. You cannot make the mistake of hiring the wrong person. However, that is what occurs often in higher education today.

For searches managed by Scott Healy & Associates, clients have a variety of replacement guarantees to select from:

Option I (Most popular with our clients).
If the professional selected for your position leaves the institution for any reason, SH & A will conduct another search at no cost to the institution other than the actual cost of the search, i.e. advertising, etc. The costs for this option will depend upon the budget the institution can afford.

Option II
This option comes with a three-year replacement guarantee and is most used by clients who have a history of their people leaving certain positions in less than two years. Should the successful candidate leave the institution in year one, SH & A will conduct a second search with no search fee; should the successful candidate leave the institution in year two, SH & A will conduct another search at 50% of the original search fee; and if the successful candidate leaves the institution in year three, SH & A will conduct another national search at 65% of the original search fee. No other search firm in higher education offers a three-year guarantee of service. The costs for this option will depend upon the budget the institution can afford.

Option III
SH & A offers a fixed-fee search option for selected positions based upon the needs of the institution. The costs for this option will depend upon the budget the institution can afford.

The most important aspects of hiring Scott Healy to oversee the entire search process are his many years of leadership experience in higher education as a senior leader in the enrollment management arena, and his communication with the firm’s 17,000+ professional network in higher education. The network includes many enrollment professionals who have asked the firm to be included in the network. Dr. Healy has been well known in higher education for more than four decades and is able to attract many fine professionals through his extensive network of colleagues in the field.
