Are you a self-driven and motivated recruiter able to manage a full recruiting desk, or an exceptional sourcer who loves finding talent others just cannot locate?

 Are you tired of working the same skill sets day after day, and would having a variety of requisitions to support motivate you?

 Can you handle supporting multiple opportunities that blend roles and industries simultaneously and have the discipline to manage your week to achieve objectives?

Are you looking to stay working from home, and would like to join a firm where that has been our model since 2010?

If you answered “yes” to these questions, @Orchard is looking for people like you to fill several roles.

@Orchard is a talent acquisition consulting firm based in Chicago, IL, with an exceptional client list of blue-chip companies, fast-growth emerging firms, and Federal clients. We are seeking motivated “agency-style” recruiters, able to use innovative sourcing methods, state-of-the-art tools, and networking to find great talent. Our clients, demand the best and need results fast. As a Talent Consulting firm, we do not force-fit clients to one solution, our work spans full-time placement, executive search, contract staffing, and RPO.

  • Build a trusted relationship with candidates, and maintain status communications with them at all times to ensure success.
  • Create clear, concise, but detailed candidate profiles to accompany resumes submitted to our clients.
  • Manage multiple searches, often across several skill profiles and clients simultaneously through great time management every week.
  • Conduct all candidate-related activities from within our applicant tracking system (ATS), to ensure appropriate transparency and compliance.
  • Support and partner with colleagues from across our virtual team to ensure we provide exceptional candidate flow for all of our clients.
  • Join a close-knit team that looks to build each other as opposed to constantly compete against each other.

Your background will include the following qualifications: 

  • Bachelor’s Degree (preferred) or equivalent professional experience
  • 2 years or more of experience as a sourcer or recruiter, working within a fast-paced environment such as an agency setting providing permanent and staffing placements, or a fast-paced growth company with aggressive hiring objectives.

  • Demonstrated experience in candidate engagement and management through an applicant tracking system with strong attention to detail.
  • Experience supporting complex and time-sensitive search initiatives, requiring a disciplined approach to delivering qualified talent with urgency.
  • The ability to deal with shifting priorities and demands with calmness and to proactively engage with a virtual team to ensure we work smart as well as hard.
  • Strong written and oral communication skills, in particular with respect to professional emails to clients and candidates, as well as demonstrated ability to articulate client capabilities against requirements in a structured screening document.
  • The ability to handle sensitive and confidential information from clients and an understanding of the limitations related to classified work.
  • Self-starter with the ability to work independently with minimal supervision and be accountable for your own delivery and success.
