As an Executive Headhunter, you will be responsible for sourcing strong candidates and assisting Account Managers with coverage for their open orders. We work with some of the largest and some of the smallest businesses in Canada, in every province. Our business is mostly in engineering; we work with EPCM firms, Oil & Gas Companies, Mining Organizations, and Energy Generators & Distributors. We also work with one of the largest water park building companies in the world!
Reporting to the Director of Recruitment, you will be consulting with our Account Managers to begin most days with an opening strategy on whom and where you'll be sourcing the strongest candidates. Training is provided for the first few days that will familiarize you with the best practices for presenting candidates with opportunities.
You will be involved in developing a pool of applicants by posting positions through various media, then pre-screening and interviewing candidates to determine their skills, qualifications, and career motivations. Throughout the process of interviews, you will be informing applicants of progress through and managing unsuccessful applicant files/resumes for future positions that may arise.
Ultimately, you'll be involved in the most rewarding part of the job: closing orders with successful placements, where both the client and the candidate have exactly zero reservations of working together!
