  • Own and continually improve how we use our applicant tracking system/CRM (Greenhouse) as the team's subject matter expert by setting best practices for requisition and candidate data management, improving system functionality, ensuring data is complete and accurate, generating reports, and training others as needed.
  • Schedule and maintain internal client / hiring manager calls, debriefs, candidate interviews and other relevant stakeholder meetings.
  • Draft interview prep emails to candidates including interview bios, schedule, and logistics information.
  • Partner with Administrative colleagues to coordinate schedules and ensure stakeholders are aligned - going the extra mile to make sure all parties are up to date, informed and have what they need including sending interview prep emails to candidates - interview schedule, locations, bios, etc.
  • Capture and action requests for scheduling, problem solving when conflicts arise with a mind to the candidate and stakeholder experience, with an expeditious nature. Ensure that everyone is kept well informed with open communication channels.
  • Partner with colleagues to process invoices, ensuring they are tracked and paid properly and raising concerns if anything seems afoot.
  • Directly connect with candidates about logistics and to answer their questions.
  • Create or co-create regular reports and agendas for internal stakeholder meetings, ensuring the reports and the ATS are aligned, identifying any gaps or action items, and pushing to-do and wins to the correct points of contact.
  • May participate in market mapping (research) and initial market outreach via LinkedIn and email to new prospects.
  • Occasionally, manage in-person interview and meeting preparation including reserving candidate meeting rooms, managing travel and expenses, IT coordination, and lunch / catering.
