The ALIGN team had established a strong and enduring partnership with a prominent not-for-profit, faith-based organization dedicated to providing high-quality senior living and care. The organization, operating for over a century, offers personalized care for seniors in multiple states, providing services from independent living to skilled nursing care.
Following the retirement of their previous Director of Nursing, the organization turned to ALIGN to help them find a highly skilled RN to fill the role. Their ideal candidate would have a well-tenured background, extensive clinical knowledge, and expertise in the same position.
ALIGN, known for our ability to bring gainfully employed candidates to the table, was ready to deliver an excellent pool of qualified candidates to the organization.
The client was seeking a candidate who aligned with their faith-based values, possessed non-profit facility experience, and matched the desired skill set. Our first step involved meeting with the facility’s Executive Director to comprehensively understand the ideal candidate’s profile. The position had been open for four months, and the facility had been unable to identify a suitable candidate.
ALIGN’s brainstorming and strategic planning sessions focused on effectively headhunting candidates in the area. We worked closely with the internal talent acquisition recruiter on the client side to ensure that we were targeting the right candidates.
Using a lot of trial and error to find the perfect candidate, we contacted actively employed nursing directors and asked for referrals. We chased every possible avenue to identify the right candidates, using titles and search terms most likely to attract the perfect hire. Our team’s commitment to finding candidates with the right skill set and values was paramount.
- Health benefits.
- A matching 403B pension fund.
