Speaking from my own experience on the ARIN board when we had a similar transition to make, I’d say that “recruitment professionals” are an unmitigated disaster.  They’ll find you a set of generic and mediocre candidates, none particularly prepared for the task.  After two false starts using “recruitment professionals” we gave up on them and hired someone we knew was capable of handling the job, and who wouldn’t flake out.  And that’s worked out really well for us.
