Just a Little Summary (for the Age of Twitter)
- Role: Talent Acquisition Consultant
- Company: HireClix
- Reports to: Strategy Consulting Leaders
- Comp: Salary, Plus Generous Benefits
- Location: Our creative, ad-agency-stype HQ in beautiful Gloucester, Massachusetts, or your home office anywhere in the US. We’re looking for the best person, and location is open. If you’re located outside of the States, get in touch for the future, we’re growing.
The Work at Hand
We’re looking for people who run into burning buildings. Heroes. Problem solvers. The kind of people who respond with “Oh, absolutely – and we need to fix that” when people talk about the messy state of talent acquisition. People who’ve found ways to improve talent acquisition at their employers, and loved it. That want to do that again. Because it’s fun. Because you have a sense of mission. That fixing it changes lives, companies, economies. It makes things better. All you need is a place to stand.
At HireClix, we’re that place. Ground to stand on. And colleagues to stand with. We share your sense of mission. We hate the status quo. We have seen the difference between poor and great hiring, and know how to improve it. And the industry seems to agree - we’re growing at a rapid clip.
Who You Are
Passion matters. We love it. That said, we need someone with a certain set of skills...
- A record of solving problems in talent acquisition
- You’ve mapped and fixed some processes, advocated for technology changes, developed new sourcing strategies, bulked up the employment brand.
- An insatiable curiosity – you may not sleep much, because you want to know all the things.
- 5+ years of talent acquisition experience – the bulk of it on the corporate side.
- A sense of humor and perspective.
- Experience working with a variety of TA technologies.
- Comfortable working with clients from CHROs to recruiting coordinators
- Self-starter approach - you won’t be told “what” to do, we want to you bring the ideas
- Flexibility. Adaptability. Things change often. You’ll be working on multiple projects with multiple clients at the same time.
- You’ve got solid office tech skills (Excel, PowerPoint, maybe G Suite, Asana, etc etc)
- Project management – you, my friend, know how to herd cats when it’s necessary.
A Day in the Life
You will be working with clients – the majority of them enterprise level – and there will be times you’ll need to travel (up to 50% of the time) for meetings, presentations, etc. Some of the work at hand:
- Process mapping
- Technology evaluations
- TA tech implementations (ATS, RMP, CRM, you know me)
- Employee surveys (for branding, skills assessments, etc.)
- Recruiting program development - referrals, university, military, diversity
- Vendor evaluations – we tend to work with lots and lots and lots of TA tech vendors, and we’re always looking for more tools for our clients’ tool kits. You’ll get to geek out and play with tech.
A company's always about the people. They set the culture. You can have all the marketing, bling, yadda-yadda you want, but… if your people aren’t great, then it all falls apart. That, or it is just terrible to work there.
We are not like that. Our team is made up of a bunch of smart, maybe a little off-center, creative, funny people. We have dogs in the office - and they’re hilarious. That helps.
We like each other. And, as a bonus: we do great, great work. Like “our competition steals our ideas and even our stupid acronyms” kinda work. Our clients like us, too. When one of our contacts goes to a new job, and finds out what it’s like to work with our competition?
Yeah, you guessed it: they fire said competitor, and call us in.
...are amazing. When our brokers were here, for enrollment, they kept pausing to say (in kind of a shocked voice): “Not all of you understand: nobody gets benefits like this anymore.” Medical, dental, and vision. Generous life insurance. Company paid volunteer days. Company matched retirement plan. Flex medical plan. Random, and very fun, events (ask us about the Vendor Olympic sometime). Beer, wine, cider, etc in the fridge. Lots more - along with super casual work environment where the best idea wins. Have a dog? Bring ‘em in.
More importantly: work at a place you’ll actively look forward to coming to everyday. It’s like working with a bunch of your friends. In the end? That’s the biggest benefit.
We Hope to Hear from Your Awesome Self
