We are not a typical staffing company

We have very high standards because our clients do…and we are committed to being different.



About the Opportunity

To fuel our rapid growth, we are focused on adding additional virtual support to our team to provide assistance with internal support activities. Our Talent Management Team in Dallas, Texas USA is looking for a part-time sourcer / recruiter to begin supporting recruiting projects as needed and on demand.

The Virtual Recruiter role was created to provide assistance in support of our internal and external recruiting efforts. All work is project-based and project-specific. Details on current projects will be provided directly to the contractor supporting the work. Your contributions are a critical input to the achievement of the recruiting operations team’s goals and objectives. The job requires attention to detail and precision in following Argus Talent Services’ standard operating procedures.



Total Rewards

COMPENSATION

The part-time contractor compensation rate will be competitive and commensurate with background, skills and experience.



Essential Job Functions

Our Internet-based operational model separates the Sourcing function from the Recruiting function. We already have sourcers who find and communicate to potential candidates. They also post jobs based on the pre-determined sourcing strategy. They are amazing at generating a lot of buzz about a posted job opportunity; and, they generate a lot of work volume by communicating to targeted, potentially qualified candidates.
We need another Virtual Recruiter who will manage the next phase of the recruiting process, including,
  • Review the resumes received and critically evaluate the candidates to identify those who are highly qualified
  • Reply to the candidates who are NOT highly qualified using professional templates so they are not waiting for feedback

  • Evaluate and score the responses on the questionnaires received from the highly qualified candidates
  • Update a comparison spreadsheet with the responses received from the highly qualified candidates
  • Reply to the candidates NOT selected for next steps using professional templates so they are not waiting for feedback
  • Communicate with the highly qualified candidates selected for next steps
  • Schedule and coordinate phone interviews with U.S.-based screening managers
  • Track all candidate information and activity updates using Google Sheets for import into the ATS
The role will require,
  • Good English language skills to interact with candidates by Skype calls when needed, e.g. to confirm schedule phone interviews
  • Proficiency with Google Mail, Google Documents, Google Sheets for data management and communication
  • Solid prior recruiting experience as described in this role description
  • Familiarity with recruiting for management, professional, IT, consulting and similar skill sets

  • Source resumes, profiles, CVs, etc. for candidates
  • Build target contact lists of qualified candidates
  • Evaluate candidates for minimum qualifications
  • Identify highly qualified candidates
  • Track all candidates (e.g., name, email, phone, position) in internal applicant/candidate tracking tools
  • Communicate and correspond with candidates to invite to review jobs, reply to inquiries, complete questionnaires, etc.

  • Some projects will be time sensitive however and may need to be completed during U.S. business hours
  • Project hours will be required on-demand, as work requirements create the need for additional support
