We’re all busy, so I’m going to get right to the point: ATR is growing, and we need to hire great people! Are you looking for a job? If so, have you thought about working in the staffing industry? Or are you already an experienced recruiter who feels a little stuck at your current firm and looking for a change? Whatever your current situation may be, I think this article will have something for you!
Staffing Jobs Overall
Let’s start with three great reasons why staffing jobs in general are so rewarding:
Independence, flexibility, and a dynamic work environment
Staffing jobs and recruiting roles easily mesh with remote work. Pre-pandemic geography was not a barrier and we actively sought out employees regardless of proximity to an ATR office. Obviously, we continue to look for great people no matter where they live or might work. The job responsibilities allow for flexible hours and independence in execution. No two days are alike in staffing, and no two clients are, either. One day you’re working with a leading telecom company, the next with a global pharmaceutical giant. It’s interesting and exciting work.
Staffing professionals are always in high demand
This is a career with job security. Demand for hiring and the need for people to work isn’t going away. If anything, it’s going to get more intense. Those hiring and those seeking jobs both need your help. If you want to be an in-demand professional and have a high level of job security, this is the career for you!
It is incredibly rewarding
This is the best part of most staffing jobs: In the end, we are always making people happy. Clients are thrilled when they find the professional they need—no one likes to be understaffed, and having a full team can be the difference between success or failure. Placing a consultant in a job they need and want is even more rewarding. You see and feel the difference that you are making in people’s lives every day. Meaningful work is one of the top five things people are looking for in a job, a desire that has increased over the past two years.
ATR in Particular
Now let’s look at three reasons why ATR specifically is the ideal destination for your staffing career:
ATR is a “Goldilocks Firm”
We’re just the right size! We aren’t so big that you get lost in the shuffle or feel like a cog in a system. We’re a connected, supportive team that stays in touch and works together while offering autonomy in how and when you get things done. And while we’re small enough to provide an intimate working environment, you’ll still get the chance to work with some of the most prestigious and successful companies around. Plus, we provide a competitive salary and benefits package.
Professional development opportunities
We provide training where needed and help you grow and develop your staffing industry skills and expertise. We encourage ongoing learning at all levels, and as you become more experienced, you’ll have opportunities to mentor and develop others. Our team-based approach to client service can also help you gain leadership skills and manage your own team. If you are an experienced recruiter or staffing professional, your best opportunity to further your career is waiting at ATR.
Get promoted faster
If you’re smart and a hard worker, you can probably advance sooner at ATR than at many larger staffing firms. Your responsibilities will increase as your knowledge and experience does. There is a clear path from sourcer to recruiter, and once you reach that point, you can become a team leader, sales rep, account manager—anything is possible! We want to see our people succeed, so we promote from within as much as possible while always keeping watch for talented, experienced recruiters elsewhere. Whether you’re just starting out or a seasoned professional feeling like a change might be good, we’d love to hear from you.
If you want to work in an environment where “variety” is the word of the day and your job is helping people, the staffing industry is calling! If you want a position with flexibility, autonomy over your daily responsibilities, and the ability to work remotely, the industry could be a great fit for you. Finally, if that all sounds good and you want to work for an established firm that combines the benefits of a close-knit, team-focused workplace with great opportunities for learning and advancement, then ATR is where you want to be.
