Staffing Consultant - Agency Recruiter
Finding People for Jobs, and Jobs for People
As a Staffing Consultant, you will find, interview, and qualify job seekers for temporary/contract roles with companies and organizations in your local market. This is a full-cycle recruiting role. From sourcing to placement, you will run the entire recruiting process. You will spend your time engaging in conversations with job seekers, whether it be over the phone, via email, or in-person. You will build strong relationships with job seekers by coaching them throughout every step of the job search process – from resume editing tips & tricks, to interview pointers, all the way through post interview breakdown and accepting a new position. In the time not spent finding the next great candidate for the job, you will be meeting with your team to discuss open positions, posting advertisements for open jobs, and learning to utilize online sourcing tools and resources.
To be a successful Staffing Consultant, you must be resourceful, have strong personal initiative, and be a fantastic judge of character. It will be up to your individual discretion to determine the right job fit based on the job seekers capabilities and business character. Beacon Hill will rely on you not just to find good candidates, but to select them from among the many individuals who will be vying to become Beacon Hill candidates, and then to match them with the right companies, jobs, and work environments. You will not just be reading resumes. You must look beyond that and read people.
This is a relationship focused sales position; the harder you work, the more results you will see. Every day you’ll come
in ready to hold yourself accountable to your goals and build your book of business.
