TalentSum is partnering with a leading Bethesda, MD-based advisory firm with expertise in risk analytics and financial modeling for the mortgage and financial services industries to identify a Head of Talent Acquisition and Recruiting.

Known for providing expert practitioners and specialized business solutions to some of the world's leading financial institutions, banks, and commercial mortgage originators and servicers, this growing consultancy seeks an experienced and results-driven Senior-level Recruiting Leader who is passionate about finding the best talent and driven to build up a successful and strategic recruiting function. This is a key “hands-on” position reporting to the Chief Executive Officer.

Sound exciting? We encourage you to read on....

As the recruiting leader, you will drive and implement the recruiting effort for the firm. You will execute the entire recruiting process from role development to sourcing and closing, and ensure a high quality experience for all candidates. You will partner with SME/Team managers and business development executives to understand and anticipate their upcoming needs and priorities.

You will network online and offline with potential candidates to promote the firms' brand in the appropriate talent communities, reduce time-to-hire, and ensure the firm is able to attract and hire the best professionals.

Over time, you will implement your own new processes, strategize, and build up a world-class recruitment process and team to ensure the firm is hiring top experts and technical professionals to help the firm achieve their goals. The primary, longer-term objective will be to create a pro-active, high-impact recruitment function that drives rapid, high-quality hiring across the organization.

This is a virtual position that can be located anywhere in the US., but has the ability to occasionally visit (when appropriate) the Maryland-based head office.

Our ideal candidate is extremely comfortable running and building up the full-cycle recruiting effort. They are a natural people leader, passionate about building great teams, and are able to define strategy, develop processes and create metrics and reporting to make sure the recruiting engine is running efficiently.

The ideal candidate will not be afraid to roll up their sleeves to source, screen, and interview. They will bring creativity and process to attract top tier talent, deliver a strong candidate experience and employment brand. This is a great opportunity to make an impact, build up a recruiting function, and scale a talent acquisition and recruitment practice within a growing multi-industry consulting firm.

Our ideal candidate will bring considerable recruiting and mortgage/banking knowledge to help inform recruiting best practices, screening, and candidate management - enough to be a highly reliable recruiting partner able to work closely with executives, develop strong relationships with subject matter experts, create alignment with internal business development partners, and ensure a great hiring experience for all candidates.
