Talent Advisor

Date: Mar 23, 2021

Location: Carthage, MO, US

Company: Leggett & Platt

The Talent Acquisition team at Leggett & Platt needs another friendly face, so we’re searching for a bright and energetic Talent Advisor to support our Corporate Human Resources group.

In Talent Acquisition, we’re in the business of partnering with leaders to recruit high-caliber talent and help others find their career paths within our growing organization – that’s big picture. On a smaller scale, we’re also in the business of writing job ads like this one, and we wanted ours to stand out. (Plus, we’re a little quirky.) So, please enjoy the countdown list we created for you!

Five responsibilities of a Talent Advisor:

  • Collaborate with hiring managers to recruit and hire top-notch candidates and integrate them into L&P
  • Partner with our business unit leadership teams to understand their individualized business needs and advise on high-level talent strategies
  • Manage or assist with other Talent Acquisition projects such as onboarding, orientations, and Leggett’s intern program
  • Participate in cross-functional project work with other areas of Talent and HR, including Learning & Development, Communications and Social Media, and HR Technology
  • Represent L&P in community and academic events and recruitment activities (most of which are virtual, for now)

Four things you’ll need:

  • Bachelor’s degree with at least 3 years of business experience
  • Genuine friendliness and superior interpersonal communication skills
  • Strong project management skills with the aptitude to meet deadlines and juggle multiple demands
  • A curious mind, advanced critical thinking abilities, sound judgment, and impeccable professionalism  

Three reasons you’ll love it here: Our company culture reflects values like integrity, ownership, and authenticity. We take these to heart, and if you do as well, you’ll fit right in.

Two more things we should tell you: We are open to a permanent remote work arrangement for this role, but once travel restrictions are lifted, the position does require periodic overnight travel. Also, if you have experience with recruiting or HR software, let us know! That’s a plus in our book.
