Company Description

TalentFront is an outsourced recruiting firm -- we work with companies that are growing that do not have internal recruiting.  We serve as their talent acquisition team providing everything from job description development to offer support.  Our services include sourcing, screening, coordinating face to face interviews, and helping our client hiring managers make the best hiring decision they can.  We wear our clients' brand and identify ourselves as being a part of the client's hiring team.  After building a recruiting engine for our clients, we then teach them how to build and fuel their own recruiting engine going forward.  

In addition to what we do, we are a startup with a strong entrepreneurial flavor.  We are a remote team, which requires strong communication skills and a belief that colleagues will do what they say they will and keep their commitments.  We ask a lot of ourselves and of each other, backstopping one another all the time.  We are building our business and working it at the same time.  Who we are today is not who we are tomorrow, which requires flexibility and adaptability. If this kind of an environment appeals to you, we hope you will read on.  

Job Description

Our Operations Associate position is tailored to someone who has a strong detail orientation. You will be responsible for performing a variety of recruiting administrative duties including maintaining candidate records, arranging and scheduling phone and/or on-site candidate interviews, posting jobs on internal and external websites, and performing operational recruiting tasks as assigned.  You will report to the Operations Manager. We are a remote first environment although we have a preference for those who are located in the eastern time zone. 

You will:

  • Post positions and update these postings as needed.
  • Open projects in LinkedIn to correspond with postings.
  • Share and edit client-specific job descriptions, strategies, interviewing and reference check templates as Google Documents.
  • Utilize our web-based applicant tracking system (ATS) to maintain candidate data and reporting.

  • Perform other duties as required by the recruiting team.
