The Caveats -- every opportunity has them! We want you to be aware of the following:
- We can't guarantee a particular volume of assignments, although we will do our best to provide you with the volume you want. But you may, for example, see high volume for two months and then see low volume during the third month.
- Assignments may come on short notice.
- You may have more than one assignment at any given time, depending on the scope of those assignments and the volume you request.
- Some assignments may involve 100% sourcing, so you should truly enjoy sourcing.
The RoleEach assignment will be different, so we'll look to you to be flexible. For each assignment, you will become an extension of the client's talent acquisition team and you may engage in any combination of recruiting activities, from gathering requirements from the hiring manager to supporting post-hire onboarding processes.
If you're the person we're looking for, you'll look forward to the variety:
- You may do full cycle recruiting or focus on just one aspect, such as sourcing or response management.
- You may work in Recruiting Machine, DT's proprietary ATS, or in the client's ATS, or both.
- One assignment may last two weeks while another lasts six months.
- You may work very closely with the client, or you may have a more independent, autonomous role.
Specific responsibilities could include any of the following:
- Participating in discovery/brainstorming sessions with the hiring manager.
- Sourcing candidates using database searches, social networking, email campaigns, cold calling and other methods.
- Placing ads using the client's system.
- Screening candidates, sometimes using tools you create for that purpose.
- Presenting the best candidates to the hiring manager or human resources contact.
- Conducting background checks.
- Scheduling interviews and possibly arranging travel.
- Helping negotiate and mediate offers.
- Providing orientation and/or training.
- And more.
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.
Virtual is its own reward
Overall the model at DT is virtual and everyone loves it. You may work at a client's site on some assignments, but otherwise you'll be in your home office. When our Chairwoman meets with a client, she calls it a "mascara day." If your assignment calls for you to spend face time with the client, you'll need to dress the part; otherwise it's come as you are.
Big corporations offer career pathing, but at DT we offer "lifestyle pathing." Our Recruitment Partners tend to stay in their roles because our model fits so well in their lifestyle. At the same time, there may be opportunities to take on additional responsibilities, such as Project Manager or Team Lead.
Trifecta of organizational culture
Throughout Decision Toolbox and our parent company, Engage2Excel, we drive employee engagement and company success through three simple but powerful steps:
- Living what we do. In short, we dig what we do. It's as much a calling as a company because we ignite the inner accomplishment that drives pride, inspires others and makes work fun.
- 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.
Decision Toolbox has been delivering RPO since before it was an acronym, and we're recognized as a thought leader by organizations such as SHRM, PIHRA, and the NHRA. Backed by robust technology, we support a nationwide list of clients in just about every industry vertical, including smaller startups as well as major names like Makita USA, EviCore Healthcare, Republic Services, 99 Cents Only Stores and Canon USA. We're confident enough in the effectiveness of our approach that we offer a 12-month candidate warranty, unrivaled in the industry.
We are a recruiting company that serves clients across industries. We have specialized teams in order to make sure we have the best recruiter on every position. That means we'll welcome your expertise in specific areas, but you also may take on searches for positions across the board.
Our comprehensive benefits offering includes medical, dental and vision insurance; prescription drug coverage; a wellness program; flexible spending accounts; a 401(k) plan; paid time off; and more.
Success FactorsWe are picky about bringing on people who are tenacious, resourceful, highly motivated independent thinkers who demonstrate initiative and regularly go "above and beyond" the call of duty.
On every assignment, you will represent Decision Toolbox and we'll depend on you to exemplify the highest standards of quality and professionalism. You'll answer to multiple stakeholders, and that will require a certain finesse and political savvy. You'll need to remain flexible, solution-oriented and upbeat, and take a proactive approach to integrating into their organization seamlessly. In the end, both the client and the candidates should feel they had a positive experience.
In addition, in order to be an outstanding Recruitment Partner, you will:
- Bring a proactive approach to continuous learning, and remain open to accepting and using feedback.
- Position yourself as a value-adding consultant, even on a project like a pure sourcing play.
- Learn new systems and tools quickly, and remain diligent about complying with DT and client processes and SOPs.
- Bring the instinct and emotional intelligence to ask the difficult questions.
