(SENIOR) STAFFING SPECIALIST

CHICAGO, IL
What You’ll Do and the Impact You’ll Make:

Who You Are:  
LOVE people!
LOVE data, too!
Are comfortable pushing to get clarity on requirements and are exhilarated by “staffing tetris” i.e. solving the everyday puzzle of aligning team members with project opportunities.
Are 80% problem-solver, 20% magician (in that you pull rabbits out of hats), and 10% chameleon (in that you can tailor your message for your audience).
Understand the impact that staffing projections have on forecasting and decision-making.
Like the detail work but are able to balance it with the ability to think strategically about the larger picture. In other words, you like the trees AND the forest!
Employ an "ownership" mentality and take pride in your personal brand.
Care deeply about making an impact and evolving the central staffing function.
Embody the phrase “cool as a cucumber.” Oh, and you’re a great listener, too!
That said, you bring a sense of urgency to time-sensitive situations.
Are an influencer. You inspire people.  The only thing better than your ideas is your ability to get them across. 
Are supremely diplomatic. You build and foster relationships like nobody’s business across the whole organization.
Are a wrangler. Getting to the right staffing decision often entails connecting with lots of people and getting them to converge on an answer.  You have a magic lasso and are able to corral people to make decisions.
Leave it all on the field. Single. Day. 

What You’ll Do:
Work with our company to understand staffing needs for their accounts, including client related processes and dependencies.
Act as a liaison between Client Management, Central Staffing, and Recruiting to ensure clarity of requirements and organizational alignment.
Partner with Client Finance team to ensure alignment on target margins for contract or full-time hires
Provide regular status updates and reporting to Client Management Team (and Geo Leads if applicable) on the candidate pipeline and staffing status
Engage External Staffing Firms and/or RPO to quickly identify viable candidates that meet our Client’s Requirements.
Partner with Central Recruiting team to drive strategy to pipeline for key roles that have been identified as likely future requirements for clients
Create and drive process and workflow to best organize our efforts to support key clients inflow of current and future talent needs.
Continuously define and refine internal processes to ensure repeatability across projects and accounts, especially as new situations or scenarios are encountered.
Uphold our staffing process and hold stakeholders accountable.
Keep up-to-date with upcoming client sales pipeline and pending opportunity wins, to manage upcoming demand 


What We’d Love to See 
Always up for a challenge and excited to navigate them with a positive attitude
Past experience in Resource Management or relatable field (ie. Recruiting or Operations)
Experience in a consulting or staffing firm/agency environment is a plus
Strong communication and problem solving skills
Ability to multi-task, adapt quickly to changing demand, detail oriented and a strong work ethic.
Team player
Very competitive salary and benefits!
Great company to work for!
Full relocation package is available!
