WHO WE’RE LOOKING FOR
You’re a cultivator of connection. Your magic lies in your ability to truly get to the heart of who people are. You ask deep questions and engage in meaningful conversation with ease. You’re strategic and agile—you see challenges and roadblocks as opportunities to exercise your creativity.
Our mission is to flip the script on recruitment. To do that, we aren’t just looking for people with a recruitment background. We’re looking for people who are passionate about creating exceptional experiences. From your first interaction with a candidate, to their first day at their new job—you’ll create unparalleled interactions at every touchpoint. As a Recruiter at Avanta, you’ll be integral to helping shape and evolve that experience.
WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING
Most candidates we work with are happily employed, but open to new opportunities. You’ll spend your time connecting with the best talent out there, listening to them, and matching the right roles with the right people.
- Coordinating candidate interviews and preparing candidates.
You’ll coach candidates on how to show up, with feedback tailored to who they are and the company they’re meeting. You’ll share techniques for navigating salary conversations and prepare them to confidently answer questions.
We don’t just keep our fingers crossed after an interview. We check in, listen intently and help candidates get some clarity around whether this is the right role for them.
You’ll always be on the lookout for ways to make our clients lives easier and to continually improve our own process. Everyone on our team is empowered to communicate, implement and lead so we can work better cross functionally. You’ll also be a part of regular postmortems and retrospectives where we make a plan to do even better next time.
WHAT YOU WON’T BE DOING
- Cold calling for new business
- Sourcing and reviewing candidates
- Reference checking
- Posting jobs
- Acting as a point of contact for clients
We know you want to spend your time connecting with candidates. We have an entire team to support you with everything else. We make it so easy for you to spend your time doing what you do best.
WHO WE ARE
We’re an executive recruitment firm in Vancouver, BC—but we’re not like every other search firm out there. We work with businesses across North America on an entirely different model. We operate as retained search consultants, so we get paid up front by our clients, which means we get to partner and collaborate with their internal HR team (or other firms) instead of being in competition with them.
Every day is a new adventure at Avanta—you’ll be meeting and conversing with fascinating leaders within top organizations across North America, raising the bar for executive recruitment and contributing to a growing culture and business. You’ll be part of a dynamic team that is committed to personal growth and development. We set big goals and we smash them. We’re in constant evolution—always looking for how we can do things better. If you see yourself as the missing piece to our team, we want to hear from you.
