The work you do will directly impact our success and that of our clients. It's a little bit of matchmaking, a lot of creative and strategic thinking, and a healthy dose of research and data.</p> <p>Reporting to the Lead Sourcing Strategist, you will take ownership of your assigned roles, diving deep to uncover the fascinating details of the role and the company to target and engage the best-fit candidates.</p> <p>This is a fully remote position.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Who you are</strong></p> <p>Whether it's a puzzle, lego, or mystery, you like bringing the pieces together to form a whole. You are looking for an opportunity to channel your strengths, expand your skills, and bridge both heads-down and (virtual) people-facing skills. You have a background in business administration and a couple of years of experience in any professional environment. You are a curious problem-solver who is highly analytical, detail-oriented, and driven. You enjoy exploring data, making connections, doing the research, and seeing the impact of your work.</p>
Responsibilities: <p><strong>What's in it for you?</strong></p> <p><strong><em>Impact and autonomy.</em></strong>&nbsp;You want to be part of the future of talent acquisition, establishing TalentMinded as a global market leader, one client at a time. You want to make an impact, one role at a time and make connections between dream job and dream candidate. This is a chance to see the results of your efforts, measure the effect you have on our growth, the speed at which we work, and our position as<br />thought-leaders in talent acquisition.</p> <p><strong><em>Exposure and variety.&nbsp;</em></strong>You will work on roles for local tech startups, global enterprise organizations, and scaling midsized companies. You will gain exposure across every industry, sourcing for technical, professional services, operations, administrative, and executive-level talent.<br />&nbsp;<br /><strong><em>Professional development.</em></strong>&nbsp;This is an opportunity to build a talent acquisition career outside of your typical recruitment role. Previous Sourcing Specialists have moved up to Lead positions or into Operations and Project Management. You will have access to courses, coaching, and collaborative peer support.</p> <p><strong><em>An AWESOME team.&nbsp;</em></strong>We have an incredible team working hard to act as collaborators, champions, and friends to one another. This is an environment where your ideas will be heard, often implemented, and, most importantly, celebrated. We help take the stress off others, offer flexibility when needed, and maintain a positive work culture through hard work and many team bonding activities.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>What you will do:</strong></p> <p>●&nbsp;&nbsp;<em>&nbsp;&nbsp;<strong>Be the answer to our sourcing search.</strong>&nbsp;</em>You will live for finding a needle in the haystack. You are genuinely excited about being able to find information in unusual places. Everyone uses LinkedIn and Indeed to recruit. You can't wait to find all of those other places, the elusive candidate's hiding spots.</p> <p>●&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<em>&nbsp;<strong>Be empowered.</strong>&nbsp;</em>We have invested in the tools and technology to help facilitate this work. But we need you to push it to its very limits and capitalize on its functionality. You will apply every bit of research, sourcing, Boolean string, SEO, and Google knowledge to generate lists of potential candidates for multiple positions every day. There's a talent shortage, and we are the bridge between employer and employee; you will actively seek out where candidates are collaborating and communicating.</p> <p>●&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;<strong><em>Be TalentMinded.</em>&nbsp;</strong>You will enjoy the benefits of working with a highly networked, incredibly talented group of people. Help us build our brand, and we will help you build yours.</p>

You have strong organizational skills to handle multiple concurrent activities and work successfully under pressure. You can plan, execute, and measure tasks, prioritizing based on their criticality to a project and the business. You understand that success is in the details. You notice things that others don't. Your critical thinking skills help to inform your decision-making, and you hold yourself highly accountable.</p> <p>●&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;<strong><em>The drive.</em></strong>&nbsp;Your aim is for zero. Zero unopened emails. Zero Slack messages waiting for a response. Zero unanswered questions - yours, ours, or potential candidates'. It's a lofty goal, but one, your meticulous nature and your passion for starting each day with a list of new roles to research motivates you to aim for.</p> <p>●&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;<strong><em>The technical skills.&nbsp;</em></strong>We track and report on all our data, sources, and research in spreadsheets and you need to do the same. You are data-driven and know how to apply your findings. You are a boolean search string expert. You are deeply familiar with LinkedIn.</p> <p>●&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;<strong><em>The interpersonal skills.&nbsp;</em></strong>You can work with anyone at any level of an organization. You thrive as part of a remote team and have exceptional communication chain management.</p> <p>●&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;<strong><em>The growth mindset.</em></strong>&nbsp;You love to learn. You are passionate about growing your knowledge, and you are excited to see what you can achieve with us. You are technically-minded and can quickly come up to speed on different systems. We are continuously testing new technologies, and you have&nbsp;the curiosity and initiative to try out the features and functionality, determining how to best apply the tools to save time.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Why you should join TalentMinded: Purpose, empathy, technology, and humanity.</strong></p> <p>In less than seven years, we have created a new category in recruitment services, and we are recognized by clients for the impact we make on their talent acquisition efforts. We save our clients hundreds of hours, thousands of dollars, and countless headaches. We support scaling startups and growing<br />mid-sized companies, building unique, individual relationships, and genuinely getting to know how we can help each Hiring Manager we work with.</p> <p>Our promise to candidates is a positive experience. We want to connect talent with the roles they dream of. By building out an authentic understanding of who our clients need and what's exciting about the opportunity, our Chief Storyteller carefully crafts our candidate-facing content from jobs to email responses, from blogs to hiring manager spotlights. Real people read each resume submitted for every role we are working on. In addition, we maintain open and transparent communications with candidates to ensure they know exactly where they are in the process.</p> <p>We love technology, but we also value the importance of face-to-face connections. And while that's not possible right now, we can't wait to come together as a team with our clients, our network, and job seekers. We have effectively transitioned into a fully remote team, and we use multiple platforms to engage clients and candidates. We've built a coaching channel for job seekers online and successfully pivoted our Women in Tech Sales (WITS) Bootcamp and Next Generation Talent Acquisition Meetups to an online format. We are also quite adept at virtual escape rooms, bingo, and birthday celebrations on Zoom.</p> <p><strong>More about why people join TalentMinded:</strong>&nbsp;<br /><strong><em>We 10X your experience.&nbsp;</em></strong>You will work with multiple companies in some of the most impactful industry sectors, primarily in North America but globally as well.
