The Opportunity 
vChief is looking for a full-time Head of Talent to lead its Talent team and set the vision and strategy of our recruitment program, systems, and processes.

Our Organization 
Founded in 2016, vChief is a young, but established and successful company providing virtual chief of staff support to busy executives on a part-time or interim basis. We recruit, select and vet chief of staff consultants and match them with CEOs and other senior leaders who need a right-hand partner. Leaders opt into a monthly level of service to meet their needs, which is provided by one of our contracted chiefs of staff. These chiefs of staff will help CEOs take things off their plate so the CEO can focus their efforts where they will have the most impact. They do things like supporting a CEO's communications and meeting follow-up, managing projects, creating systems and processes to improve efficiency, planning meetings and events, hiring, budget development, and more. We've had great success with our clients to date, with 98% indicating they would recommend vChief to a friend or colleague. Now we are looking to share these services with more CEOs in more industries.
