Juno College

Employer Relations Specialist

At Juno, we’ve got ambitious goals and we’re looking for driven, results-oriented, and friendly people to help us achieve them. We are hiring an Employer Relations Specialist to join the Outcomes team! As a team obsessed with making sure our graduates get great results, we are growing, trying new ideas and intensely focused on making sure Juno grads continue to stand out.

Opportunity

As the Employer Relations Specialist on the Outcomes team, you own the growth of Juno’s relationships with organizations and employers. Your job will involve sourcing employment opportunities that are the right fit for recent graduates of Juno’s Web Development bootcamp. You’ll be connecting with hiring managers, recruiters and decision makers to position Juno as a reliable talent source.

Working closely with the Director of Outcomes, you’ll develop an employer outreach strategy that will meet our ambitious goals and exciting future growth plans. It’s important to know that we measure everything. You will track outreach activities, and do whatever it takes to get our graduates placed. You’ll help them quickly land full time jobs as web developers, while creating an exceptional employer engagement experience for every company Juno works with.

Who We’re Looking For

We’re looking for candidates with at least 2 years of experience in job development, employer relations or high volume recruitment, preferably with a technology-focused agency. This is a target-driven role that’s perfect for someone who is very results-oriented and really cares about meeting metrics. This role would be a good fit for someone who understands sales cycles and worked within a sales process. You have worked with talent/job seekers from diverse backgrounds, and have knowledge of tech startups and labour market.

Without a doubt, Juno is the place for you if you care about skill-building, technology and contributing to a team that really cares about what we do every day. And, perhaps not surprisingly, we don't care about things like degrees or diplomas. We care about finding great people to join our team, and then helping them to reach their full potential. If you feel like we're describing you right now, please read on!
