Who We Are:

Atheneum is a leading global insights platform servicing various clients including distinguished strategy consulting firms, renowned investment houses and well known global corporations. Our mission is to provide faster insights to empower our clients’ decision making. Through our AI capabilities we accelerate the decision-making of our clients by connecting them to the world's top professionals and industry leaders. Atheneum is growing rapidly, with 500+ professionals in 11 offices across the US, South America, Europe, Middle East, and Asia.

About Our Opportunity:

The ideal candidate will have an interest in full-cycle recruitment and relationship management with colleges/universities across the United States. You will implement and develop creative strategies to engage top-talent across universities through strategic partnerships, career fairs, and other in-person/virtual events.

This role is centered around recruiting for open full-time roles in our New York City and San Francisco offices. You will also be supporting our internal US Talent Acquisition Team in sourcing, interviewing and coordinating top tier talent through our interview process. We are actively seeking an individual who understands the educational system, university job boards like handshake and also local visa requirements. 

This role would suit an agency recruiter looking to move in-house, someone with sales experience that is keen to move into a different industry or someone with previous internal recruitment experience.
