Recruiting Coordinator 

Walnut Creek, CA 


Our Fehr & Peers Corporate office serves all of our offices and anticipates the needs of others to support their success in improving the communities we serve. Our close-knit Human Resources (HR) team partners with hiring managers and staff members across the company to recruit and hire new candidates and connect our staff with all aspects of the unique Fehr & Peers culture. We’re seeking a collaborative and organized self-starter to join us as our new Recruiting Coordinator. This role administers our talent acquisition program by helping ensure we consistently meet ongoing needs in providing qualified candidates to more than 18 offices. A successful candidate for this position enjoys collaborating across teams, cares deeply about the candidate experience, and is passionate about building diverse and inclusive teams. 

As one of the first contacts candidates make, the Recruiting Coordinator ensures they all have a welcoming and positive experience with Fehr & Peers. The position offers opportunities for  reviewing candidates, speaking with candidates during phone screens, determining offices candidates may be best suited to, and sharing candidate information with the office hiring managers. Beyond the standard recruiting process, we’re looking for a creative individual motivated to expand our reach and success by researching and uncovering new and diverse candidate pipelines, identifying events to participate in, and partnering with our offices nationwide to creatively source some of our more unique positions.  

Our team fosters a friendly, fun, and inclusive atmosphere focused on teamwork and work/life balance. We also provide a collaborative environment, regular team-bonding events, cross-training, and ongoing diversity, equity, and inclusion conversations.
