It’s with that in mind that Hireology is looking to add a Talent Acquisition Manager to the People Team.

Reporting to the VP of People, the Talent Acquisition Manager will be responsible for managing all staffing operations for the company, including managing candidate pipelines, reporting on staffing to plan, implementing innovative and proactive recruiting processes and practices, and hiring the highest-performing diverse and inclusive team.  The ideal candidate will be a highly motivated self-starter with a passion for building teams.
