People Department Leader

Location: Wilmington, DE

Department: People Department

Type: Part Time

Min. Experience: Entry Level

What is ProAutomated? 

We provide engineering services around the United States and Canada with a team of field engineers located in 15+ Major US Cities. We focus on lighting and are expanding into new industries. More important than the work we do is the people who do it. We're focused on providing a great place to work, where team members enjoy working alongside their peers and are consistently growing and developing themselves. We question the norms of business and industry, which keeps us on our toes looking for how we can improve and be ready for tomorrow before our competitors are. 

We look for smart, energetic and forward-thinking people to join us as we grow. 

Why are you hiring this position? 

  • Hiring used to be relegated to a few months of the year for us, we simply rallied for a few months and spread the work around our office team. As we have grown our team now needs new members every month...which means on-going recruiting, screening, interviewing and on-boarding every month of the year, and we're ready for a dedicated person full-time to do it. 

What will make me successful in this role?

  • Creative mind - creating great interview scenarios, job descriptions and ways of attracting top talent
  • Sense of Urgency - Hiring the top people means moving quickly to respond and reach out throughout the interview process. If you don't like an email left unread in your inbox, if you like to stay constantly on top of things, this would be a great trait for the position. 
  • Great written and verbal communication - You are the words and voice of ProA to potential candidates, so emails and phone calls should display our excellence.  
  • Outgoing/High-energy personality - Customers should be able to hear/feel your enthusiasm through phone calls and emails. 
  • Strong computer/internet experience/skills - Fluidly navigate multiple internet windows simultaneously, learn new software programs with little instruction,  Find information easily through in-depth web searches.
  • Great at organizing - You'll be keeping track of 50+ candidates on any given day, knowing who is at what stage and where to send them next requires great organization.  

What will I be doing Day to Day? 

  • Working closely with executives and managers to develop pipeline for new job openings at ProA. 
  • Opening and Closing Job Postings through our Recruiting software. 
  • Executing a proven process for recruiting and finding great candidates
  • Leading and conducting in-person interviews for various positions
  • On-boarding new employees to set them up for success at ProA and in their position
  • Off-boarding exiting employees including conducting exit-interviews
  • Helping employees find answers to their compensation/benefit questions

What is the position like? 

  • Time commitment will vary each week depending on needs. Hours are flexible but will require every day of the week, and occasional (light) weekend work (from home). 
  • Work from our office in Newark, DE with opportunity to work from home periodically. 
  • We want you to be in the office to meet all candidates interviewing (2-4 interviews/month) and new hires starting (1-2 start dates/month). 
  • Working closely with remote managers/executives via email/phone.
  • When the hiring isn't as heavy, we'll need your help in the office with answering phones, setting up travel and taking care of customers. 

When are you looking to hire? 

  • Immediately! We're growing quickly and need great people to help support this growth.
