Global development recruiting has its own unique set of challenges, and recruiters must often be able to identify highly specialized professionals for projects.
Kate Warren, Devex director of global recruitment services, sat down with Kelly Tobin, recruitment manager for Engility, to find out how important it is for her team to have a technical background in the area they’re recruiting.
Just a year ago, Engility didn’t have division-specific recruiters, Tobin explained in our video conversation (see below). But she now has energy, agriculture and conflict and stabilization recruiters, to name a few.
“This being D.C., you can find someone with a master’s degree in agriculture who’s not only willing, but excited to have the opportunity to work as a recruiter on food security and ag positions,” Tobin said.
