Dogwood Services Inc.
Full Desk Recruiter (Sales & Recruiting) - Contract to W2 Employee - Straight Commission
(Virtual- Work from home)
Are you a full desk recruiter looking to make
a change for the better?
Dogwood Services Inc. is a 12-year old
staffing and outsourcing firm with a stellar track record of recruiting and
placing highly skilled people for our clients. We are veteran-owned and veteran-led.
We have a great brand, our own team 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 recruiters (both outside sales and recruiting) to join our team. We don't care where you live-- as long as you can do the job. 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. This is a virtual position, and we currently have associates working under this model in all four time zones.
There are NO caps on your income at Dogwood. We expect the right person for this job to bring home $200,000+ per year after a year of hard work-- followed by more years with even more income, because our commission program is set up to reward achievers. We don't re-assign accounts to others, we don't re-align territories, and we don't put hindrances in your path. You would be working directly for our Managing Director, who would serve as your coach and mentor. Your response to this advertisement will to to him; see below.
What kind of skills & EXPERIENCE ARE REQUIRED?
5+ years success as a recruiter (the more the better), and ideally experience as a full desk recruiter.
Extensive business to business (outside sales) sales experience and skills. Those without this experience will not be considered.
Solid experience within a vertical market (finance, healthcare, engineering, technology, aerospace, logistics, manufacturing, etc)
What ARE WE ALSO LOOKING FOR IN YOUR RESUME (And listening for during the interview) ?
Values and ethics. Our ethics and transparency set us apart in the marketplace.
Personal maturity and a stable lifestyle
A track record of working on successful, high-performance teams
A desire to succeed married to a habit of hard work. (Slackers tend to weed themselves out pretty quickly here.)
A desire to learn and try new things and to grow personally and professionally
A proven track record of closing business in this space
Tenacity. An ability to plan your work and work your plan-- every DAY.
The energy and ability to work through the inevitable issues and challenges.
An ability to think creatively.
A deep understanding of the vertical market(s) in which you prefer to operate
Dogwood is a 100% "work remote" company.
This presents both opportunities (for those who thrive on working in an
unstructured environment) as well as challenges. We don't care where you live,
but we DO care about results. You will be expected to have a home office, to
provide your own laptop, Microsoft Professional (including Outlook) and an
internet connection. We provide basic online tools and full support-- and
of course, an excellent compensation plan. Our recruiters have a high
degree of flexibility when it comes to finding and recruiting their own
opportunities, including an option to hand some of their recruiting needs over
to our internal recruiting team as needed.
The hiring process:
- We review resumes and cover letters
- We email back those who interest us and may ask a couple of email questions
