sales recruiter - contract role



re:work is hiring! (well, for part-time work) We’re looking for a no-nonsense sales recruiter/talent specialist who will prepare our candidates for sales interviews and facilitate their placement into sales roles. This is a contract role for at least March and April, and could lead to opportunities beyond. We’re looking for between 3-5 hours/week, starting in early March.

We’re a young nonprofit, and you’ll be the second part-time hire. We’ll pay an hourly wage (based on experience), but you should be in it for the mission, rather than the money. You’ll work directly with Employer Relations and leadership.

So, what would you be doing?

  • Reviewing and understanding each candidate’s background/experience

  • Assessing candidates’ interview strengths & weaknesses

  • Communicating to candidates where & how they can improve

  • Running mock interviews with candidates, tailored by where they’re interviewing

  • Ensuring candidates enter interviews with confidence & come away with an offer

What do we need from you?

  • To embody our values: perspective, merit, respect, courage, communication, flexibility

  • Experience. You’ve done this before, working on entry-level sales roles

  • Hustle. You put in the effort to get offers in front of candidates

  • Honesty. You need to tell the truth to both leadership and candidates, even when it hurts

  • To be able to legally work for a nonprofit on top of other job(s) you hold

Bonus points for:

  • Pre-existing relationships with Chicago tech employers/HR teams

  • A unique professional and educational background
