The Recruitment Manager is responsible for creating a pipeline of qualified and diverse applicants who are interested in and committed to serving a year with SAGA Innovations.

This person is relationship driven, results-oriented, ambitious, attentive, and passionate about SAGA’s mission.


Talent Acquisition – Annually, the Recruitment Manager will assist with the development and execution of SAGA’s recruitment strategy. This plan will include: finalizing calendar of recruitment events, event logistics plans, event communications for internal and external audiences, event promotion strategies, event success measures, and budget management.

Additionally, some evening flexibility is necessary as well as the ability to participate in final round interview days on Saturdays.

Develop and Cultivate Internal & External Relationships – Success in this position is largely driven by the Recruitment Manager’s ability to develop and cultivate internal and external relationships. The Recruitment Manager must build strong relationships with internal leaders to address the organization’s recruitment needs.  This person will cultivate and manage existing college and community partnerships and develop new partnerships with the goal of expanding SAGA Innovations’ reach within those networks and to develop a strong, qualified applicant pool from those connections.

Data Management – In collaboration with other members of the recruitment team, the Recruitment Manager will manage and maintain our applicant tracking system, including keeping database accurate and up-to-date with all required information and running and providing reports to senior leadership as needed. The Recruitment Manager will assist the National Director of Recruitment in developing metrics to measure growth and performance and use real-time data to report on progress towards goals, provide an ongoing assessment of recruitment activities (i.e. conversion of prospects and ROI for activities), and course correct recruitment activities and strategy as necessary.

This job description reflects SAGA Innovations’ assignment of essential functions and qualifications of the role. Nothing in this herein restricts management’s right to assign, reassign, or eliminate duties and responsibilities to this role at any time.
