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:

  • Interact with candidates via our internal database, job boards, social networking, portfolio sites and networking events
  • Thoroughly interview candidates and qualify them for open positions
  • Consistently build and nurture a pipeline of best talent in the area

Here’s what your career could look like:

  •  Recruiters can move into a more client-facing role as Account Executives, if they enjoy customer service, and have strong knowledge of the creative industry
  • Recruiters and/or Account Executives can move into a sales role if they love the thrill of the hunt and have killer negotiation skills
  • Account Executives and Sales Professionals can move 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 MOST successful here if you:

  • Have a minimum of 2 years experience in the staffing industry, ideally in the digital, creative, marketing or technical space
  • Hold a Bachelor’s Degree from an accredited institution of higher education
  • Demonstrate strong planning and organizational skills
  • Are comfortable engaging with strangers over the phone, in person, or via email

  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!
