Job Description

Get what you deserve.

Top-notch experienced tech recruiters are arguably the most important team members of all the best IT staffing firms – and they should be treated that way!  At a lot of firms, they are not, but at Talon, they absolutely are.  

Are you one of those tech recruiting rockstars we’ re talking about?  Are you considering making a move?   If so, you owe it to yourself to seek out a company that…
  • Spares no expense to set you up for success
  • Has a comp package that rewards your efforts the way you know you should be
  • Cares about your work/life balance like a family member would

Let us show you how Talon does all those things.

Let’ s get this out of the way first – Talon has fully embraced the move to a remote workplace.  You can work 100% remote, from anywhere you like, forever.  Our amazing staff has taken advantage of technology to stay connected with, and bond with, each other – which will enable you to truly feel a part of a tight-knit team, who is willing to help you every step of the way.  We place trust in our staff and give them the autonomy to get their job done without micro-managing them.

Talon has one of the best compensation packages in the industry, with competitive base salaries and one of the richest commission programs you’ ll find. You can start earning commissions from day 1 with Talon. The structure is simple and easy to understand. Your commission percentage (on your whole book) increases as your weekly spread increases.  There are no caps. There are no draws to pay back. There are no splits. It does not reset every year.  There is no funny business - and there are no shenanigans.  On top of all that, we will pay you when we invoice our client, meaning you don’ t have to wait to get paid until we collect. 

Of course, a great commission plan means nothing without great job reqs to work.  Talon’ s bread and butter is direct relationship (non-VMS/MSP), contract and direct hire, 100% IT positions; and right now, we have more of them than we can handle.  As you would expect from a 20-year strong, 6X Best of Staffing Diamond Award winner for client satisfaction (and talent satisfaction by the way!), we have many solid, long-standing client relationships.  We also have experienced (10 years avg. - 5 at Talon), knowledgeable Account Execs that know the right questions to ask clients to get you the information you need to sell those opportunities to the A-level candidates.  They know the importance of getting feedback so you’ re not recruiting blind.  They are armed with access to robust labor market analytics to help educate our clients on realistic candidate compensation.  In short, they “ get it.”  To sum up, you won’ t be working any black-hole, purple squirrel job reqs for weeks on end.

We put our money where our mouth is.  At Talon, we are constantly investing in a state-of-the-art tech stack to give our recruiters the best odds for winning the war for talent, keeping them one step ahead of their competition.  Some examples:
  • We have been using the staffing industry’ s #1 applicant tracking system (ATS) for 18+ years, giving us a massive IT candidate database (300K+), with integrated functionality to format a resume in less than 2 minutes
  • All recruiters get their own licenses to multiple job boards, including IT specific boards, and LinkedIn Recruiter
  • Tech that enables you to search our candidate database, LinkedIn, and multiple job boards with ONE search – all from within our ATS
  • Ease of outreach to candidates via all connection methods; click-to-dial VoIP phone system with voicemail drop capabilities, integrated SMS and email, and video messaging functionality
  • Chatbots that can pre-screen job responders & auto-matched candidates, and add them directly to your calendar should they fit the bill
  • Tech screening tool that gives you the control to expertly screen candidates for tech knowledge, in real-time, (virtually eliminating deceitful candidate testing practices) and our recruiters earn a Recruiter Technical Certification (the world’ s first)

All these tools are fully integrated, mobile-optimized, and cloud-based, making them available from anywhere at any time.  You’ ll never miss a beat.   And we give you the equipment you need to make it all hum like a well-oiled machine – laptop, dual monitors, noise-cancelling headset, peripherals, the works. 

Our goal is to enable our recruiters to spend as much time as possible doing the part of their job that makes them money – talking to candidates.  That’ s why we employ sourcers to funnel matched resumes to you.  That’ s why we use a tool that automates time consuming tasks like getting Right to Represents signed, gathering candidate reference information, and soliciting candidate thank you letters to send to clients.  That’ s why we have a killer back office who handles all contracts, consultant on-boarding, and payroll.  And that’ s why we have a Consultant Service Manager whose sole job is to keep your working consultants happy. 

Lastly, you’ ll be working for passionate, understanding leaders that truly care about you and your success.  So much so, that Care is the first principal in our Talon C4 cultural philosophy (the others are Communicate, Challenge and Celebrate).  These leaders place a high importance on the training and career growth of our staff enabling us to promote from within.   Case in point: all of our production managers were promoted into their first leadership roles while here at Talon.  In addition, Talon boasts transparency and stability at the top of the org chart.   Our CEO and COO have been with Talon for 20 and 15 years respectively and have a combined 50+ years of experience in the industry.   If you’ ve ever worked for a firm that didn’ t have that kind of longevity and stability in leadership, then you know just how important it is.  They are always approachable and accessible should there be anything you need help with, just like everyone else at Talon.

We are headquartered in New Jersey and have been named to the Best Places to Work in New Jersey list 7 years in a row – 3 times in the top 15 (to reiterate, you need not be in NJ to work for Talon).  As you would expect from a company with that track record, we offer an excellent benefits package to our employees with all the bells and whistles (subsidized health insurance through a national plan, ample time off, etc.).   We would be glad to share those details with you should we get further down this road together. 

We know this all sounds too good to be true, but sometimes the grass really is greener on the other side.  Our team agrees.  Here are some excerpts from our Glassdoor reviews…

“ Hard work is appreciated, celebrated and (most importantly) compensated.”
“ Amazing company culture, excellent training and tools provided.”
“ One great perk of working for Talon is the company invests in your success.”
“ If you are looking to elevate your career and join a company where your earning potential is as high as you can dream, Talon is where you want to be.”
“ What sets Talon apart from other firms, is their commitment to their staff.”

  • Are you an experienced tech recruiter? 
  • Do you like what you’ ve heard?  
  • Do you feel like you could hit the ground running at a place like Talon? (BTW - we incent our team to help you make your first few placements so you can do just that!) 

If the answers are ‘ yes’, then we should talk.  Click apply and we’ ll set up a casual conversation to see if Talon could be your new home.
