Specialist Staffing Group, the US division of SThree plc, is continuing to grow its brand base across New York and the rest of the US as the supplier of top tier specialist talent to SMEs and Fortune 100 businesses. We are on track to become the top provider of STEM talent in the US, and there has never been a more exciting time to join us. As a family of specialist brands, we have internal opportunities for sales talent across all levels - partnering with businesses across a variety of industries and verticals.

We have an incredibly exciting opportunity for a Director level individual to join one of the most promising start-up teams of the moment in New York City: Madison Black.

The Madison Black Perm team in New York has experienced an impressively successful beginning as a start-up. It was recognized as the 2017 Team of the Year across all US offices and has some nationwide top performers, including the US number 1 top performer, a consultant billing well in excess of a million dollars in 12 months. The focus for Madison Black during 2019 will be to take this high potential team to even greater heights. We're looking for a senior individual to develop the team and manage the brand to take it from great to greater.

As Director of Madison Black Perm, you will oversee the success and development of a small team - an amazing group of talent ranging from Associate Consultant to Manager level individuals. You'll build culture, set standards and be a visionary. Each consultant operates across a 360 desk, and you will support a strategy that develops their client and candidate relationships. If you're looking for a "hands off" role where you won't be client facing then this is NOT the role for you. Prepare to lead from the front and drive all activity!

You will ideally have a minimum of 6 years of experience in a staffing agency environment, with clear success as a hands on recruitment consultant as well as a solid background in team management. You should have experience of managing at least 7 direct reports.

Would you relocate to New York for this position? Where you come from should not determine where you can go. And if there is one place that is the pioneer of this, it is New York. This city is a melting pot of cultures and communities. So many movements, races, nations, ideas, and values have found their place in this amazing city. And there has never been a better time to live here! People move to NYC to chase their dreams and make them come true. The cost of living in the world's most sought after city does comes with a price-tag, and it shouldn't come as a surprise that it is fast becoming a hot bed for staffing agencies here - there is an unbelievably thriving economy here. Living here is like nowhere else on the planet. You will discover a new found respect for people, culture, art, food, and most importantly, your career!
