@Orchard LLC has been asked to assist a fast-growing Federal Contractor with an established business development pipeline that would necessitate doubling the size of the firm within 12-months, to recruit a Recruiter with the dynamism, creativity, and business savvy to identify, engage and deliver talent needed to be successful. The Recruiter will join an established team tasked with driving a successful recruiting strategy supporting a number of channels including highly cleared resources for the Intelligence Community (IC).

Our client wants to hire a motivated and energetic recruiter, looking to put their stamp upon a function, someone with great recruiting skills, but also the ability to collaborate for success with BD/Capture, Proposal Teams, and Delivery to build an exceptional company.

As the Recruiter, you will;

  • Source scarce talent, including those with high-level clearances, and innovate to ensure engagement with prospects conversion to candidates, and ultimately employees.
  • Provide market intelligence to inform business leaders and the TA team and constantly seek out approaches to give the firm an edge possible to compete.
  • Deliver innovative sourcing and candidate attraction strategies to meet a dynamic and variable staffing environment.
  • Actively manage the entire recruiting lifecycle through to onboarding new staff, with great professionalism, clarity, and an emphasis on quality.
  • Conduct all activities in a manner compliant with all regulatory requirements, including working within applicant tracking technology and providing thorough documentation.
Your background will include.

  • Evidence of success supporting all levels of hiring, including technical and functional roles.
  • Familiarity with the Federal business development process, including examples of working closely with Capture teams through the proposal process, and working with subcontractors and prime contractors to elicit information and provide insights needed for success.

  • Familiarity with emerging trends in talent acquisition and a recognition of the importance of both branding and candidate experience.
  • A strong understanding of how to recruit in a manner compliant with regulations such as those set by EEOC and OFCCP.
