This is an excellent career opportunity with high organization visibility as you partner with senior leaders in managing the recruitment efforts for multiple position openings. The senior physician recruiter also partners with leaders and a senior candidate generation specialist to develop and implement comprehensive sourcing strategies. Additional job responsibilities include attending virtual career fairs, conducting ChristianaCare resident/fellow information sessions and participating on team process improvement projects.

The individual may work remotely and will need to be able to come into Wilmington, DE periodically.
