The Opportunity

Intellerati is seeking a telecommuting Research Associate to join our team. If you love uncovering information others miss; if you enjoy chasing a great lead, tracking down the perfect source, working your sources, completing puzzles, cultivating new relationships, and working with and maintaining databases you have the makings of a recruiting research associate. Founded by a former award-winning investigative television journalist, Intellerati is a recruiting research and intelligence firm that recruits senior executive and top technology talent for some of the world’s most powerful and successful companies. We conduct intensive research to uncover and profile the best and brightest candidates and then we recruit them to once-in-a-career opportunities. The Research Associate role is an entry level position and offers candidates the rare opportunity to get in on the ground floor of an elite executive search practice poised for growth.

Responsibilities:

Intellerati has found a better way to recruit talent through better information. We conduct research on companies and potential candidates — rapidly entering, updating, and cleaning data as we go. In fact, we often find the research work strangely meditative, like working to fill in the missing pieces in a gigantic data jigsaw puzzle. We call companies to identify potential candidates, to map the reporting relationships of entire teams, as well as to build org charts. We contact, screen, and qualify potential candidates. We also contact, qualify, and develop new business with potential clients. So, you actually have to like to pick up the phone and talk to people you don’t know. Though the role is a telecommuting one, offering exceptional work/life balance, we operate with a deadline sensibility and work nights and weekends as needed.. Because we are a boutique practice, because we operate collaboratively on most engagements, we enforce a “no jerks” pol icy. We care about the candidates, about the client, and about each other because we believe we can make a real difference.

Requirements:

College Degree, honors preferred
Research/communications intensive majors: library science, journalism, marketing/public relations, law
Srong communications skills
Strong research abilities
Passion for business, technology and data quality
Track record of achievement
