Federal Recruiter

Remote, #Workfromhome

Are you the type of recruiter who likes the thrill of the hunt?
Do you want to work for a firm that was #workfromhome, before it was common, and knows how to make remote work to your advantage?
Are you comfortable managing a full desk including technical and functional roles, with and without Federal clearance requirements?
Are you skilled in sourcing through multiple channels and networking with candidates to build a slate of qualified candidates for your clients?
Do you want to work within a company that likes to recognize talent, where you are supported and can partner with colleagues for success, not constantly compete?

If so, we may have just the opportunity you've been looking for!

@Orchard is a Woman-Owned Small Business (EDWOSB-8(a)), that delivers commercial solutions to Federal Contractors, and direct assistance to the government as a contractor ourselves. @Orchard's success is centered upon its talent acquisition network of virtual recruiters who collaborate to meet the unmet needs of commercial and Federal clients every day through the use of our unique methodology and best-in-class tools. Owing to the growth in demand, @Orchard has an opening to add another recruiter to our team, and our preference is to identify an individual with some experience supporting technical recruiting within the Federal market, including cleared opportunities. We recruit under RPO and project-based support for Federal contractors and hire directly for @Orchard engagements, therefore experience supporting both salaried and contract recruiting is desired. We look for recruiters who are motivated and agile, most tend to have some experience within the agency field and understand the mantra that every client need is critical and time-sensitive. 


  • Proactively go-to-market with active opportunities, this includes cold-calling and networking with candidates, not just email from a search or waiting for applicants.
  • Source, screen, qualify and close talent against specific requirements to be delivered quickly to our clients or for @Orchard to engage.
  • Create a positive candidate experience through professional and transparent communication while ensuring the candidate is accurately assessed for viability against the need.
  • Track all activity within our applicant tracking system (ATS) to ensure we remain compliant and data is preserved for future reference.
  • Track progress against recruiting goals and client projects in recruiting spreadsheets or tools
  • Develop and execute a personal time management plan to effectively support and manage a variety of client hiring needs
  • Develop and maintain solid networks of candidates and foster strong client relationships


  • 2+ years of Federal recruiting experience with an emphasis on candidate sourcing and screening.
  • Experience recruiting technical and functional talent within the Federal and Cleared sectors.
  • Demonstrated ability to manage candidates throughout the hiring lifecycle and to track actions within the ATS consistent with company policy. 
  • Strong written and oral communication skills
  • Ability to handle sensitive and confidential information
  • Self-starter with the ability to work independently with minimal supervision
  • Recruiting experience in a high-intensity recruiting environment where speed to action and mental agility are essential competencies.
  • Demonstrated ability to collaborate and support colleagues to ensure the client receives the most effective results from @Orchard as a whole.
If this opportunity aligns with your experience and you are motivated to succeed as a recruiter who enjoys partnering within a virtual team of like-minded colleagues, please reach out as we are ready to hire!
