Recruiting Specialist: The Strategist
Avra Talent Partners
- 🇺🇸 Anywhere in the U.S. 🇺🇸
The Company’s mission: AVRA Talent Partners is focused on disrupting the traditional recruitment industry through the decentralizing of expertise. This means instead of one recruiter, running the full lifecycle on every open role assigned to them, AVRA has dedicated recruiting teams that consist of Coordinators, Interviewers, Headhunters, Domain Experts, all led by a kick-ass Strategist.
Why this role exists: Part-project manager, part-recruiter, one-hundred percent extreme-ownership-taker, the Strategist is a key part of what makes AVRA different than a traditional recruiting firm. The Strategist leads a team of 3-5 specialists, each who specialize in one of the five disciplines of hiring, and focuses on helping lead their team to find the best candidate for each open client role.
