We are looking for a Recruiter to join our Travel Nursing team! MUST HAVE EXPERIENCE STAFFING TRAVEL NURSES OR LOCUMS TENENS business to be able to quickly discern substantive clinical skills of nurses and make offers quickly.

We service specialty medical practices; long-term care, post-acute care, and rehabilitation facilities; and hospitals throughout the United States. We have hundreds of positions that go unfilled and we need a person who likes to move fast! You will recruit and screen for LPNs and RNs.

VitalHire is a boutique, technology-enabled staffing firm where everyone is treated like family. We are known for our well-matched assignments as well as our unique ability to service variable staffing requirements with minimal advance notice of hiring needs. We specialize in temp-to-hire and contract placements. This is not a sales role to obtain new business. You will be taking care of existing accounts. However, you must love to talk to people and find joy in helping get people matched to great assignments. This position also requires great organization as you must know the status of your nurse pipeline and your contract durations to maximize renewals and retention of nurses.

We move fast as a team, so the right candidate must be quick, efficient, and embrace technology to achieve a more productive result. We are paperless and love technology, so if you rely on paper, you are not the right candidate.

We desire to make the staffing process better, so we regularly change and improve when something isn't working. We are small and nimble, fast and efficient, and don't let paralysis by analysis impede our performance. The ideal candidate can pivot on a moment's notice, loves change, loves contributing ideas, and even geeks out over a process improvement or learning a new technology. We call it high intake and high output. If that describes you - we want to meet you!

We operate in a iMac/iOS computing environment and use Google Suite business applications as well as other ATS and technologies to support the staffing workflow. The ideal candidate must be able to hit the ground running in this environment.

This is a FULL TIME, W2 direct hire position and entirely remote. As such, you must have a distraction-free, productive work environment. Hours are flexible and encouraged as nurses sometimes are most available before their AM shift or before their night shift.
