Gig Description

Senior Talent Acquisition Specialist

Location: Dubuque, IA

Cottingham & Butler was built upon driven, ambitious people like yourself. “Better Every Day” is not just a slogan, it is a promise we make to ourselves and our clients.

Our company is growing and we need your help! We have been hiring hundreds of new employees every year and we expect to continue growing at a similar rate. In order to sustain this growth, we need additional recruiters on the team. 

This role will be responsible for managing specific target niches and will get to know the key companies and players within the niches. The position is primarily outbound and requires someone that is proactive with networking, cold calling, and relationship building. It is a high-profile position and will give you the opportunity to partner with top executives in the company.

What does it take to be successful in this role? You will need to be an out-of-the-box thinker that is capable of producing innovative ways to attract top-tier talent. You will be communicating with a wide variety of people every day, from executives and managers to applicants and new employees. There will be a strong emphasis on building talent pipelines. Preference will be given to candidates with 3+ years of experience in a full-cycle recruiting role and a proven track record of success with sourcing and hiring passive candidates.

Our team supports offices across the United States; therefore, some travel is required. If this describes you and you are ready to make a change, we’d love to talk with you!
