|Title||Talent Acquisition Leader|
|Location||Costa Mesa, CA|
I am pleased to announce that my colleague, Brandon Biegenzahn, and I are leading a retained search with our McDermott & Bull team for a Talent Acquisition Leader. Our client is Leading Edge Aviation Services which is based out of Costa Mesa, CA.
The position is unique as it is an individual contributor role (there is not a team of recruiters reporting to this position). The finalist will be responsible for recruiting for all “office” positions as well as leading recruiting best practices for site management in their effort to fully staff their seasonal hourly workforce. The position will be based in Costa Mesa, CA but will require the finalist to travel up to approximately 50% of the time. Each primary site has 150-200 employees.
The company is looking for a person who can hit the ground running and is looking to be heavily involved with hands on recruiting. They will also need to have the ability to establish a recruiting strategy for the company. The person will regularly report on its recruiting metrics and have a leadership style that is highly adaptive from a corporate environment to the various U.S. sites. They should have 10+ years of recruiting experience with a recent history associated with recruiting unskilled hourly employees in different U.S. geographies. The compensation level is in the low $100k’s.
This past year, you may have read that Leading Edge Aviation Services added as a key investor the private equity firm, Vance Street Capital LLC.

The award, given annually by Aviation Week and Overhaul & Maintenance, honor’s outstanding achievement and innovation in aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO). Leading Edge Aviation Services currently operates in 9 locations in the USA. The company is over 20 years old and continues to grow at a very healthy pace.
