Recognized as industry leaders in recruitment for management, professional, and senior level positions, MRI Cedar Rapids recruiters have the experience and skills to fulfill your placement needs. Using our Accelerate Recruitment approach and our proven methodology, we locate the best candidates and present your opportunity in a way that attracts them to your organization.

We recognize that a one-size-fits-all approach isn’t in the best interest of our business partners. Instead, we approach each recruitment relationship with an agile and accommodating purpose to provide customized solutions.

Contingency Search

We know your most valuable asset—your people. With contingency search we can provide full-time employees to you as they are discovered by our expert Cedar Rapids Recruiters. Pay staffing fees only after we find you the right employee.

Retained Search

Also considered ASAP Searching, we put a dedicated team on your search to find you the right candidate as quickly as possible. Retained Search is best for sudden disruptions in your work flow. Retained Search requires a partial up front fee.


Contract Staffing provides flexibility and expertise to solve your challenges with surprising speed. Contractors can make an impact on projects, expertly fill temporary openings, and provide special skills or experience when you need it.

We can help you with your search

Contingency Search

Designed to fulfill both individual search assignments and ongoing openings, full payment isn't required unless the position is filled.

Don’t let unexpected resignations, hiring freezes, and long and complex hiring processes bring your organization to a slow crawl with over-worked staff and impossible to reach objectives. Turn to contract or contract-to-hire solutions to acquire the skills and experience you need—fast! Bring on experienced contractors who will help keep your critical operations running and your results on track.

There is no financial commitment required to initiate this type of search.

This allows you the opportunity to “test” a new search consultant, and is a good way to stay aware of top talent as it becomes available. The fee is a percentage of first-year earnings, payable when the candidate starts employment.

Retained Search

A dedicated search team fills your position within a specified period of time.

If your need is more immediate, or the talent’s skills more in demand, we can dedicate a team of professionals to focus exclusively on your specific solution. In return for a small commitment fee up front, you will receive a complete, customized search action plan. Your retained search is our top priority.

This plan is for an urgent situation, or for a sensitive case in which confidentiality is paramount. We serve as your company’s directed recruiting resource. Fee is computed at a percentage of the offer letter, which includes base salary and realistic bonus for the first year. You pay us one-third to initiate the search, one-third when the candidate accepts, and the remainder when the candidate begins employment.

Contract Placement

Designed to fulfill both individual search assignments and ongoing openings, full payment isn't required unless the position is filled.

Depending on your company’s unique situation, you may be in the market for a part-time or full-time employee for a set, limited amount of time. At MRI, we understand that while these employees are temporary, they should still be the top quality candidate.

Contract Employees found by MRI’s award winning team in Cedar Rapids can be used to fill season employment positions or be used for special skills in which they’re experts!
