Virtual Req #249
Friday, July 16, 2021

The job of an Aquent Studios Recruiter is a lot like internal recruiting, a bit like account management, a little like temporary staffing, and mostly a whole bunch of fun. Aquent Studios is seeking a consultative and experienced recruiter to partner with internal hiring managers to staff creative roles in our client engagement teams. This role interfaces with both internal and external hiring managers, and requires prior success in a client facing role. 

More often than not, you are recruiting for long-term salaried contract positions, and will need to wear your direct hire recruiter hat much of the time. At any moment, BAM! A short-term temporary position can come up, and you’ll shift gears quickly to jump on a last minute temp req.  All the while you’ll be supported by a close knit group of deeply experienced recruiting ROCK STARS. Sound thrilling? We think so too!
