Executive Recruiter / Engineering Practice


Scarborough, Maine


Smith & Wilkinson is a best-in-class executive search and talent advisory firm located in Greater Portland that specializes in permanent placement executive search, succession planning, executive assessments, and executive coaching. Our clients include Banks, Credit Unions, and other Financial Services firms, Not-For-Profits and Associations, Insurance companies, and Engineering firms. These companies utilize the services of our firm to find key hires for mission critical roles, as well as help plan for future leadership readiness through succession planning and coaching.


Our Executive Recruiters are the primary point of contact for clients, and personally execute all aspects of the search and selection process.  They use a combination of sales acumen, industry expertise, and interpersonal finesse to find and attract executives to our clients, and they consult and advise clients and candidates through the process.


Our Engineering practice specializes in small and mid-sized engineering firms (50-1000 employees) across the country, and based on exceptional demand for our services we are looking to expand the team.  We are looking for a mid-career (10-15 years experience) professional to join this thriving team.


We are the largest permanent placement executive search firm in Maine, so if you want to be an executive recruiter, this is a great place to ply your trade. It is a fast-paced and fun environment with a close-knit and collegial team. People that are good at the job, who have just the right combination of personality, work ethic, and motivation, will love the work and make a handsome living. We are also excellent corporate citizens and donate significantly to important not-for-profits.


Here is what we believe is required for success:


  •         High drive, determination, and achievement orientation.
  •         Charisma, interpersonal ability, and a great intuitive feel for people.
  •         The ability and discipline to consistently execute a high volume of work.
  •         Innate curiosity, a powerful working memory, and above average intelligence.
  •         Exceptional executive level communication ability, verbally and in writing.
  •         B2B sales experience and/or entrepreneurial experience.


We are offering a salary, significant commission opportunity, health insurance, STD/LTD, life insurance, retirement plan, subsidized gym membership (with the opportunity to work out at lunch), vacation/sick PTO, and a clearly defined partner track (like a law firm or CPA firm).


If you are this exceptional person, we want to hear from you! Send an email and present your relevant details.
