Due to our continued growth, SkyWater Search Partners is looking to add to our Accounting & Finance Recruiter Chicago Team!

You will focus on the Chicago market and sit in our SkyWater Search Partners office in Minnetonka with the occasional (1-2 times/quarter) trip to Chicago for client visits. However, if you prefer not to travel that is fine as well!

With this opportunity, you get to work with a big city (3X the size of Minneapolis) which means three times as many key accounts that we do not have established yet. This role allows you to truly be an entrepreneur and build a book of business!  Our Executive Recruiters receive an extremely competitive base salary + commission structure, with unlimited earning potential.

As an Executive Recruiter you will be responsible for driving the continued growth of our Chicago Accounting & Finance practice. This will be achieved through the development of recruiting plans, employing traditional sourcing strategies and resources, as well as developing new, creative recruiting ideas.

SkyWater Search Partners has been rated the #1 search firm in Minnesota for the past 5 years in a row by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal. We place more people in professional full-time positions than any other Minnesota-based search firm.

In addition, we have won 9 Best Place to Work Awards, as voted by our employees, in both the Minnesota Business Magazine, as well as the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal.  We celebrate wins as a team and have a lot of fun doing so- boat trips, golf outings, team lunches, happy hours, quarterly meetings and so much more!
