The RoleRole Overview
Working with our RPO client, as Talent Advisor, you will play a key role in a division of labor model, serving as the client facing representative for Decision Toolbox. You will manage the requisition process from cradle to grave, interacting with experts responsible for different pieces of the process. Your mission will be to manage communication and workflow, ensuring our efforts result in quality and timely hires and client satisfaction. Demand will ebb and flow, however, we anticipate that you will normally manage between 30 and 40 requisitions. For some positions, you'll be responsible for finding the candidates to fill the openings. For difficult to fill positions, you'll have recruiters and sourcers backing you up and doing the heavy lifting of finding talent for you.
Daily Role Execution
Reporting to the Client Success Manager, as Talent Advisor, you will leverage the breadth of your skills along with tools, techniques, and competitive intelligence as you work closely with multiple departments, levels and titles at your assigned RPO client. You will be responsible for planning, developing, and implementing recruiting strategies that provide a qualified candidate pool and result in a steady flow of successful hires. You will build relationships with hiring managers and other stakeholders, taking a partnership approach to meeting their needs.
Internally, you will work with your supervisor, recruiters, writers, sourcers and others engaged in developing the talent pool, as well as with quality and operational staff members. Typically, when the client opens a requisition, you will reach out to the hiring manager and begin building a relationship that will ensure a successful and positive project outcome.

More Good ReasonsSetting you up to be exceptional
DT has awesome trainers and we provide initial and ongoing training through modules that include culture, process, products and our proprietary ATS / CRM. We've also implemented an internal online university, DTU and DTSU ('S' for sourcing), to provide on-demand access to resources, including the latest sourcing techniques and trends, best practices, process videos, working referrals, courting candidates, compliance and more. You bring the talent and experience and we'll ensure you have the tools and training needed to succeed.
Mix of site and virtual contacts
Overall the model at DT is virtual with the exception of those who work on location with clients. You will work at the client's site but most interactions with the DT team will be remote. Even though the team works virtually, our culture is strong and we will wrap you in a blanket of community and collaboration. You will be a known, respected and valued member of our team.
Big corporations offer career pathing, but at DT we offer "lifestyle pathing." Most of our team tend to stay in their roles because our model fits so well with their lifestyle. At the same time, there may be opportunities to take on additional responsibilities, such as stepping up to a senior or supervisory role. While our recruiters love working with candidates, Talent Advisors truly enjoy supporting hiring managers.
Trifecta of organizational culture

- Rewarding those that earn it. This means you, your team -- everyone. We work hard, play hard and help the customer reap the success we all can enjoy.
- Seeking new ways to solve problems. Change is hard, but success is soooo sweet. We encourage everyone to lean in, invent and then reinvent. We value courage because we know the best ideas just might make your palms sweat.
