We partner with some of the biggest manufacturing companies in the world and our technical innovations are used to enhance well-known brands across multiple industries.

Red Lion Controls, an operating company of Spectris, is undergoing a period of significant change and growth. With strategic plans to grow over the next several years through both organic and inorganic growth, the talent acquisition needs of the organization have increased significantly.

While managing a cradle-to-grave recruiting process is the primary scope of the position, it is anticipated the successful candidate will have an opportunity to participate in development and/or facilitation of key talent management initiatives both within the corporate environment as well as in support of our production facility.

In addition to continuing to reduce the reliance on external recruiters, the Lead Recruiter will continue to work with the VP, HR in driving / evaluating current practices around requisition management, tracking, metrics / analytics and selection methodologies or tools. A strong client orientation and ability to establish business partnerships is critical for success.

Red Lion's global HR leader continues to promote an increased sense of urgency in talent acquisition, employee engagement and international growth.
