Superior customer service is the foundation upon which Options Consulting Solutions was built. We appreciate that our success depends on earning your trust and we work hard to keep it. We sort, sift and dig systematically through our professional networks, industry connections and our customized database of qualified professionals with a single purpose: to uncover top talent that will drive results to your bottom line.

We take pride in acting as an extension of our clients.  Prior to beginning any search requisition, your OCS Consultant, along with a secondary point of contact, will conduct an on-site visit to gain a clear understanding of your specific culture and recruitment needs. We will also determine your organizational structure and the “wow factor” that separates you from your competitors.  When a recruitment mandate is expressed to us, we follow a standardized recruitment process that has facilitated our ability to reduce client costs, increase the speed in which we deliver results while still producing high caliber candidates.

We adhere to our “7 Step Process”:

  • Needs Analysis
  • Research
  • Sourcing and Recruitment
  • Assessment
  • Presentation and Interview
  • Acceptance of Match from Client and Candidate
  • Follow-up

We understand how important it is to qualify our candidates and have created a fundamental principle to ensure that our candidates are qualified, motivated and invested in the specific job opportunity you are offering. Based on the original search criteria, candidates will not be submitted to you unless they:

  • Have met at least 80% or more of the skills you require
  • Are willing to accept an offer in the specified salary range
  • Are motivated by more than the monetary value of joining your company

Contingent Search

A search requisition is undertaken and our fee is due and payable only after a candidate is represented and takes a position with the client.


Engaged Search

As a specialized recruitment service the engaged search involves a partial payment prior to completing the specified search request.


Retained Search

As a specialized recruitment service the retained search involves a retainer (up-front fee) required to perform a specific search. A deposit equal to one third (1/3) of the total search fee is due and payable on initiation of the search request.  Once the candidate(s) are selected for the initial interview, one third (1/3) of the total search fee is payable. The fee balance is then earned and will be invoiced upon the candidate’s date of hire. The OCS Professional Retained search means the client will operate on an exclusive basis with OCS.
