The Many Names of a Talent Acquisition Professional

June 8th, 2016

titles-for-talent-acquisition-professionalAs we discussed last week in What is the Job of a Talent Sourcer?, the world of talent acquisition continues to evolve and with it, so do the roles of recruiting professionals. While the titles themselves don’t really matter, it’s important to clearly define roles within your internal recruiting department. Who does what? When & how often? How do you communicate and coordinate as a team? When building a talent acquisition team, clear allocations of roles & responsibilities is crucial.

But back to the many job titles of a recruitment professional — to prove to you just how many options there are we brainstormed as many names as we could, not including level and geography denotations like “junior” or “regional.” You can also add many more dimensions by adding specific functional recruiting like “technical/IT” or “marketing” and industries like “life sciences” or “healthcare” to define the types of roles and sectors the recruiting professional works with. We excluded words & phrases like “contract” “part time” or “remote”, which do play large part in talent strategy but add too many possibilities to the list. Finally, you can also get pay homage to your culture with creative adjectives like “Off-centered Recruiter” or “Rockstar Recruiter” so we left those out too.

By the end of it, we came up with 154 titles for talent acquisition professionals. Are we missing any? As social media and drip marketing evolves, we are on the look out for new roles & titles that specialize in new sourcing channels in candidate communications/engagement. Comment below if you have a title to add!
