Project Description: 

We seek an experienced professional to help us develop and implement enhanced recruitment and talent acquisition strategies. As a direct result of longstanding underinvestments coupled with the impacts of the pandemic, we have experienced significant issues with recruitment and retention of our caring, committed workforce despite increased demand for services. This project will help us improve both the nuts and bolts of recruiting (applicant tracking systems, use of job posting platforms, etc.) as well as develop and implement best practices and innovative approaches to recruitment and talent acquisition.  We anticipate that the first month will focus on discovery, the second month on developing ideas and creating solutions, and the following months on implementation, testing, and evaluation.
