Mid Level

Overview: <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">At TalentMinded, our corporate mission is to create a competitive advantage for our clients by helping them recruit the right talent to build their culture and grow their business.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">As an employer, our mission is to help develop the next generation of talent acquisition leaders. We believe there is a critical gap in recruiting and that there is a short runway in many agencies and in-house recruiting roles. We want to change that.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">This is so much more than a traditional I.T. recruiting job. This is an opportunity to gain exposure to multiple industries, to the inner-workings of start-ups and mid-sized companies and to gain transferable skills. We are experts in our field backed by years of experience working with every company, in every industry. We&rsquo;ve experienced all recruitment models and tactics &ndash; so we guarantee you&rsquo;ll learn a lot and get access to knowledge, networks and thought leadership. At the same time, we love people with a passion for ideas and those that are always raising the bar! That means your ideas will be heard, often implemented and most importantly appreciated and celebrated.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">We are partners with our clients. Many companies in our industry claim this, but we truly are valued partners. We have an innovative and new way of working with companies that is an extension of our clients and we continue to grow with them. We get involved in their corporate events, branding, social media and much more. We always feel like we are part of the team and a big part of what makes them special. Where possible we are on site and client facing, involved in workforce planning and as part of the creative process. Recruitment is changing at lightning speed and we&rsquo;re determined to keep our clients (and TalentMinded) on the leading edge of current trends. </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">All this to say, we are looking to add to our awesome team. We&rsquo;re hiring for a Senior Talent Advisor to work remotely (onsite is available too). Part sourcer, part interview aficionado and all efficiency. You have experience in recruiting tech talent including Developers, Engineers, UI/UX, PMs, BAs, etc. You &ldquo;get&rdquo; the SaaS, tech culture and know how to assess fit. You may even consider yourself a bit of a techie too. And more importantly you have an aptitude for learning quickly and can think on your feet. </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">This role is perfect for someone who has 5 or more years of full-cycle recruitment experience either in IT staffing or within a technical company. You&rsquo;ve been exposed to the world of recruiting and you like it, but you don&rsquo;t love the agency culture and environment or working onsite 5 days a week. Recruiting can be better and there are awesome career opportunities if you can grow in the right environment with the right leadership.</span></p> <span style="font-weight: 400;">This role is core to our business. We need you! You are going to continue to make us fabulous and you are a key part of making us grow.</span>
