Are you an staffing professional looking to make a change for the better?

of experienced recruiters, excellent internal processes, strong financial
strength and a great leadership team and are a company of 70+ people.
We are looking for a few more full desk / full cycle recruiters to join our team, working on straight commission. (These are recruiters who both sell our services to companies and/or fill the open roles. They're not just recruiters-- they're sales execs AND they're recruiters.)

We don't care how young or how old you are, what citizenship, sex or color you are, where you went to school or what kind of degree you have-- or if you even have a degree. We DO care about things like ethics, honesty, excellent communications skills, client relationship management, and a habit of doing the right thing because it's the right thing.... and RESULTS.
There are NO caps on your income at Dogwood. We expect the right person for this job to bring home $250,000+ per year after a year of hard work-- followed by more years with even more income, because our commission program ensures you're paid for ongoing work while you remain on our team. We don't re-assign accounts to others, we don't re-align territories, and we don't put hindrances in your path.
What kind of skills do you need?
Business to business sales experience and skills - especially selling to small to mid-sized firms, especially experienced in selling services
Two or more years success as a recruiter- preferably full desk / full cycle
Values and ethics. Our ethics and transparency set us apart in the marketplace.

Tenacity. An ability to plan your work and work your plan-- every DAY.
