Calling all current and/or aspiring Recruiters! 

Are you looking to play an integral role in the growth of a dynamic, profitable, and mission-driven start-up? If so, please read on...

Who (or what) is Percy?

Percy is a next generation recruiting firm that sits at the nexus of HR/tech and recruiting. With a mission to humanize the hiring process, we leverage proprietary technology and skilled recruiters to provide “white-glove” service for both the candidates we support and the clients we serve. We focus on building long-term relationships with companies that have high-volume and ongoing recruiting needs, which allows our business model to share the desired recurring revenue properties of SaaS (software as a service) platforms. 

Since Percy primarily recruits for entry-level sales and customer service positions, we play an invaluable role in helping job seekers navigate the labyrinth of modern day job hunting. Most of our candidates do not benefit from a college degree or years of professional experience, which is why we provide value-add services such as interview coaching and resume reviews. We treat our candidates with dignity, coach them up, and help them climb the ladder of upward economic mobility.

If you are looking for an opportunity to deploy capitalism for the greater good, look no further. Help us humanize the hiring process for entry-level workers nationwide!

What role does the Recruiter play?

We believe recruiting is a team sport, and as such, we have designed this role to fit in our overall team structure. As a Recruiter at Percy, you will NOT be responsible for business development or candidate sourcing, which means no cold calling and no cold emailing.

Percy’s Recruiters work to build relationships with candidates and support their overall hiring journey. In this role, you will have the opportunity to guide candidates toward well-matched roles and coach them through the interview process. 

 

How about career development?

 

As a Recruiter at Percy, you will benefit from a supportive culture where feedback and discussion are always encouraged.

 

A typical growth path involves first mastering the core recruiting skills and then developing team leadership and account management skills through gradual exposure and coaching. With time and development, you will have the opportunity to grow into the Account Manager / Lead Recruiter role if you so choose. 

 

The smaller nature of our team also provides ample opportunity to contribute more broadly. If you are curious about marketing, people operations, or other functions outside of recruiting, this position will provide you the opportunity to “dip your toe” into those functional areas through small projects and structured support. As such, the Recruiter position can serve as an on-ramp to other career paths at Percy. 

 

Who is the ideal candidate?

 

We are looking for empathetic, worldly, and verbally skilled recruiters who identify with our mission: to humanize the hiring process.

 

Our ideal candidate cares deeply about doing right by candidates, approaches recruiting with a social justice mindset, and is excited to play his/her role in helping to grow our business. 

 

If you’re “one of us”, you relish the opportunity to roll up your sleeves and do the work, whatever it may be. Our team is bonded by a deep commitment to our mission, a drive to grow the business, and a desire to be around other smart, kind, and funny professionals who like being themselves while at the office.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I've had the opportunity to grow into new roles as our company has evolved. I began in a sales role and transitioned to recruiting. More recently, I've become an Account Manager, which allows me to flex my client-facing skills while leading a small team.

What is your vision for the company?

Through our niche focus on high-volume, entry-level hiring we have a unique opportunity to "do good" while growing our business. As we scale, we'll continue to develop and deploy technology that keeps us ahead of the curve. Most importantly, we'll never lose our social justice mindset or stray from our mission to humanize the hiring process.
