The Role:

We are in search of a qualified and resourceful Recruiter to add to our global Talent Acquisition Team. Reporting to our Global Recruiting Lead, this is a new headcount to add much needed resources to our US recruiting team for general recruiting and will also have accountability to oversee our global diversity recruiting initiatives. This role is 100% remote and must reside and have the right to work in the US. (We've been 100% remote since 2007 and we know how to do it right!)

At Acceleration Partners we understand that our business thrives when our people thrive, and that starts by hiring the right talent professionals. We have three core values that we apply to everything we do: Own It, Embrace Relationships, and Excel & Improve. The ideal candidate will have multiple years recruiting experience which aligns to all of these values and with some exposure or working experience specifically with diversity recruiting. This person will have a history of owning it, assuming personal responsibility for all projects she/he participates in, to ensure we are providing the best resources and support for all of our team members. She/he will also have a history of embracing relationships within a firm and across all levels. And, this person will have demonstrated the desire to Excel & Improve by consistently evaluating refinements to the talent acquisition process showing a passion for continued learning and improvement.

This individual will be responsible for candidate sourcing, communication, and hiring for a variety of positions on our growing team. This is not your typical in-house recruiter, at AP our recruiters are very high-touch and involved in the selection process alongside our hiring managers and teams.  This highly visible role will require an ability to juggle multiple work streams with competing priorities, a high level of attention to detail, good judgement, the and the confidence to work with hiring managers of all levels, including the C-suite, and guiding them on the best practices to filling their open roles.

Over the next 4-5 years, we are anticipating 3-4x headcount growth around the world in the Americas, EMEA, and APAC. This is a great opportunity for someone with a passion for fast-paced professional level recruiting and a strong interest in shaping our diversity recruiting practices. It is anticipated that at least 50 - 75% of the time this position will be focused specifically on diversity recruiting. This role will require the ability to manage multiple stakeholders and influencers while working autonomously and remotely.
