What will your day look like?

You will assist and coordinate activities related to the full life cycle of a lateral candidate, including creating job requisitions and postings, maintaining candidate files in the applicant tracking system, coordinating interview schedules, compiling candidate feedback, and preparing standard offer letters. Under the supervision of Talent Acquisition Managers, you will communicate directly with search firm agencies, associate, and partner candidates, and internal stakeholders to ensure a seamless candidate experience.  

In your role as a Talent Acquisition Coordinator, in addition to maintaining a high volume of interviews, you will manage the conflicts and background checks, as well as collaborate with the Talent Acquisition Managers on special projects including but not limited to market intel.
