Talent Specialist (Charlotte, US)


About the Role:

As a Talent Specialist at Passport, your number one priority every day will be to source, attract and hire the best talent into an incredibly fast-paced, exciting, and constantly changing environment. At first, you’ll immerse yourself in the Passport culture and brand. You’ll lean in on learning the business while building relationships with leaders; learn what they're looking for in talent and challenge them on ways to source and select talent. You’ll also learn the business needs, the roles, and our recruitment process.

You will partner with the People Operations team and business leaders to drive ambitious growth goals from the people angle. Your mission will be to find candidates who bring an entrepreneurial spirit, a sense of ownership and grit, a passion for Passport’s mission, and diversity of thought to all they do. You will be an ambassador of the brand, building upon and improving the recruiting process using data and a continuous improvement mindset. You will champion full-cycle recruiting, from talent sourcing and attracting candidates to interviewing and hiring amazing employees. You’ll have a special focus on championing the process for our technical hires. You will strategically balance marketing our openings and screening candidates, while further developing our employment brand and building strong external talent program partnerships to deliver on exciting people growth goals.

All of the above being critical to success, but we still want more. You will need to be passionate and flexible about all aspects of People Operations. Since Passport is growing at such a rapid pace, we want teammates who can flex into other areas of People Operations; whether it be onboarding, learning and development programs for our employees, or supporting company culture activities. Our goal as a team is to attract the best, get them hired, and then keep them engaged, happy, and productive so that they continuously deliver for our clients and customers.

  • Develop and execute sourcing plans from traditional and non-traditional sources including, but not limited to, job boards, social channels, meetups, conferences, professional networks, and referrals.
  • Build and maintain strong working relationships with people leaders while positioning yourself as a thought leader for finding best-in-class technical talent
  • Organize, lead and document requisition intake, requisition creation and close, and provide recruitment process guidance to hiring managers
  • Deliver a stellar candidate experience through developing strong relationships with candidates and engaging candidates with quality communications throughout the hiring process
  • Execute against the employer brand strategy
  • Demonstrate and report out on recruiting effectiveness and performance

About You:

You are driven and creative, with an interpersonal savvy that lets you develop strong relationships with both candidates and hiring managers. You also have an innate curiosity for understanding how things work and connect, and a desire to make things better. You eat change up for breakfast, you’re nimble and continually approach obstacles with a solution-finding mindset. You can work successfully in sometimes ambiguous environments.

You thrive off of always learning new things. You are a trusted partner. You have a talent for taking complex problems and situations and simplifying them for improved and scalable performance. You don’t let technology or process stop you from putting people first. You're confident using numbers and being data-driven, drawing insights from analytics to make our hiring process and People Operations team smarter and more efficient. You are a culture carrier and a talent magnet who strives to deliver best-in-class talent acquisition strategies and results. You possess sound judgement, excellent communication skills, a collaborative spirit, and have fun while doing all of the above.
