Miami, Florida
07/10/2017

Job Description:

We’re looking for smart, funny, energetic and competitive individuals who are passionate about helping our creative talent find great jobs. You’ll be joining a financially-strong, privately-held company that was named one of America’s Best Recruiting firms in 2017 by Forbes.

At Onward Search, we provide you with the tools and training you need to hone your skills, grow your industry connections and promote your personal brand. We also foster an entrepreneurial spirit and encourage our team members to bring new ideas to the table and to actively seek out their ideal career paths.

While we are a metrics-driven organization centered on growth, we’re equally focused on improving our workplaces based on our teams’ wants and needs. This employee-driven culture guides the way we conduct ourselves such as our relaxed dress code, our penchant for snacks and games in the office, and the causes we support. We also love getting together outside of work, whether that’s at regional company-wide events, after-work celebrations or for our annual Chairman’s Club trip to the Caribbean which rewards top performers from across the company.

Here's what your day will look like:

  • Locate new business opportunities by communicating and visiting with prospects and clients
  • Lead generation, using your sophisticated understanding of social media and various online technologies, to identify key prospects
  • Ongoing account management, including client contact with all managerial levels to figure out a candidate's fit for the assignment and viability to support specific current and future client needs
  • Serve as an industry advisor to clients as it relates to staffing and marketing trends in the digital marketing and creative fields

Here’s what your career path could look like if you excel in this role:

  • Sales Professionals can be promoted into Director-level Management, running either the Recruitment or the Sales teams
  • Directors can eventually run their own teams as Managing Directors, after leading strong performing teams on either the recruitment or sales side of the house
  • Managing Directors can move into Regional VP positions, after showing they can motivate a team to deliver for our clients and change the lives of our candidates
  • Onward and Upward to the Executive Leadership team!

Requirements:

You’ll be very successful here if you:

  • Have at least 3+ years of sales or account management experience in the staffing industry
  • Have experience in the marketing, advertising, digital or creative space
  • Demonstrate strong planning and organizational skills
  • Perfected the art of cold-calling and cold-emailing
  • Developed a sales philosophy that allows you to take a shared approach to business development
  • Hold a Bachelor’s Degree from an accredited institution of higher education

If you’re interested in joining a growing staffing agency with great momentum; if you’re hungry to advance your career just as much as the careers of others, then we want to hear from you. Apply today!
