WunderLand—we’re a multi award-winning staffing agency specializing in recruiting creative, digital, and marketing talent in Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, New York, Boston, New Jersey, Rhode Island, plus a painstakingly hand-picked team of some of the industry’s best recruiters and account managers. We’re on a path rooted in greatness since 2009, have achieved tremendous revenue growth, and forged an amazingly strong reputation in our recruitment space.
Yes, we match great companies with top talent in the design, advertising, web, and marketing fields. But we do more—we provide consultancy, guidance, and industry insights. We’ve worked hard to differentiate ourselves in this field and our reputation speaks highly for us.
We are seeking a Managing Director for our Chicago office, where it all began and our largest office, to continue to inspire, motivate, and drive further business growth and development.
WunderLand is seeking an inspiring, positive, and driven managing director to continue to lead our Midwest practice into achieving greatness in the staffing space. Leveraging your previous success of building and managing a team, you will have the opportunity to continue to identify and grow a strong mix of potential freelance, contract-to-hire or full-time staffing needs in the Marketing, Advertising, Design and Digital Development fields.
You will also be expected to develop the team and business in a way that aligns with WunderLand’s core values and mission, and inspire and expect nothing less than exceptional customer and talent experiences during every step of the process.
As a strong leader, you understand that you set the tone for the branch. You will lead your group by example, fostering a holistic team experience across not just your office but in tandem with our other branches.
You are passionate about delivering extraordinary customer care and service to the esteemed clients and talent you are fortunate to represent, while having a good time doing it!
Required Skills and Experience
You’re the right candidate for the role if ethics, integrity and relationships are of paramount importance to you. Logically, you will need at least 7 years of previous staffing experience, plus at least 3 years of sales team management experience, in order to understand the nuances of successfully managing a branch office. You will have demonstrable chops in networking, be unafraid to sell our services via phone, email, tweet and in person, and engage the team that you’ve been cultivating and crafting. You will have an insatiable desire to learn and understand technology and its impact on not just staffing, but on the clients who are implementing new devices and services. Previous selling and business development acumen is of paramount importance for this position.
