Portland, OR

Express Employment Professionals is seeking Emerging Leaders for our offices in Oregon.  We offer a rare opportunity to our most successful team members to buy into the business and become a Managing Franchise Partner. 

About Us: 

In the nearly 40 years since our inception, Express Employment Professionals has grown to rank as the largest privately owned staffing company in North America. Express puts over 600,000 people to work each year and works with nearly half of the Fortune 500 companies in devising and sustaining effective staffing strategies.  A career with Express offers an amazing introduction to the staffing and human resources arena, not to mention the opportunity for a career in sales and small business ownership.  The most fundamental asset of Express is our strong culture of values and integrity.  We are a team-based company and we are passionate about helping people and having fun while doing it!

About You:

You are a changemaker.  You like to help people.  You are competitive; and thrive in a fast-paced environment.  You have a natural ability to create and maintain relationships with your customers.  People often wonder how you can accomplish so much in a day.  You enjoy engaging and networking with people at all levels.

This Opportunity:

Our Emerging Leaders are the true sales and recruiting leaders for their branch and must be able to perform every job within the office. An Emerging Leader will start by learning the "inside" of our business - recruiting, staffing, customer service.  Next the Emerging Leader will move to outside sales; focusing on pricing strategies, client company deliverables, and account management.  As a leader you help shape the culture and environment of the office by setting the standard for success.  Eventually the opportunity will promote to Franchise Manager where you will be responsible for day to day business management, outside sales, and inside sales with the primary emphasis on hiring, training, and coaching the right staff to continually service clients, associates, and increase sales. A successful office has a fast pace and sales driven, people focused team. A successful Franchise Manager follows the Express system and continually utilizes the tools and management principles to create and sustain a successful office. 

Key Responsibilities:

  1. Execute and implement established sales goals to ensure maximum market share and gross margin. 
  2. Execute effective recruiting strategies to fill positions with urgency and maintain a solid pipeline of candidates.
  3. Ensure high satisfaction levels with clients through consistent Quality Control checks. 
  4. Establish a strong presence in the community by representing Express within local networking organizations and community events.
  5. Communicate and administer all Express policies, procedures and programs.
  6. Ensure compliance with federal, state and local employment laws governing the workplace and employment process.

Skills and Experience Proven to be Successful:

  • 4-year Undergraduate degree with a focus on business, marketing, psychology, sociology, or related degrees; or a combination of work experience and education
  • Staffing and recruiting experience is helpful, but not required
  • Sales aptitude and competitive mindset
  • Community involvement and a passion for helping people
  • Proficiency in MS Suite 

What You Can Expect:

At Express Employment Professionals we have a comprehensive training plan including on the job, online, and classroom training.  We are committed to your success and will give you feedback and coaching along the way, including telling you when you are doing a good job and celebrating your successes. Our daily and weekly plans coupled with our coaching will help drive you to where you want to go in your career.  We offer a highly competitive base salary plus uncapped commissions, bonuses, and a comprehensive benefits package including Medical/Dental/Vision insurance, PTO, 401k, and much more!

Feedback From Our Team Members: 

“I love my position at Express because it’s my job to come up with solutions. It’s problem solving that has a true, immediate impact on people’s livelihoods on both ends of the employee/employer relationship.  Every business owner has a vision, large or small, for their company. Express gives us the tools and direction to help them see that vision become reality. It’s like wish granting, and it feels amazing.” – Business Solutions Specialist in Nevada

“I just returned from my sabbatical after celebrating a milestone anniversary at Express.  My whole team covered for me while I was out.  My customers were very well taken care of and I got to focus on family and summertime for 4 whole weeks.  I came back to work refreshed, fulfilled, and ready to help put more people to work.”       – Recruiter in Oregon

“I was happy and relieved to dig more into my vision and dental plans with Express. Ironically, during Covid times I almost did not put to use the medical side of my benefits; however, I needed to get new glasses and some dental procedures done during that time. I would have not been able to go through all that if it weren’t for the Express benefits help.”   - Employment Specialist in Oregon

"As someone who likes to travel and adventure outdoors, it's so great having 5hours of PTO every single pay period. With such a fast-paced role, it's important for me to be able to decompress by going camping, hiking, etc. and having enough PTO to cover it is a lifesaver." – Employment Specialist in Washington
