The Senior Regional Recruiter

The Senior Regional Recruiter reports to the Regional Talent Manager.  The Senior Regional Recruiter will be self-directed, self-motivated, and work to develop, track, and fulfill the recruiting mission of the talent management department.  The Senior Regional Manager will work collaboratively with other leaders in talent management (recruiting, scheduling, human resources, and training) to ideate, develop, and implement an industry-leading strategy for the company that will include measures for attracting, selecting, and hiring needed talent additions. Initially, the Senior Regional Recruiter will focus on immediate and near-term needs: (a) filling 10 critical key and professional positions (across the executive and professional specializations); (b) filling another 12 to 18 anticipated professional hires throughout the company; (c) sourcing the much-valued summer college intern program hires (20 to 30) and fall intern program hires (another 5 to 10). Importantly, while knowledge of construction trade 'craft' hiring is essential, the Senior Regional Recruiter will not initially focus on craft recruiting.
