Welcome to #WeAreGreenKey, where we shine a spotlight on the incredible people behind our powerhouse recruiting team. 

Kiki Tyler, an Account Executive in Green Key’s Office Support, joined the team in April 2021.

Tyler offered us a bit of insight regarding her work journey and experience at Green Key thus far.

What inspired you to pursue a career in recruitment?

I’ve always enjoyed working with people and wanted to get out of retail. My girlfriend worked for a staffing company and thought I would be a great recruiter. I was hired and within three months was working with both clients and candidates. I really enjoy solving problems and helping others succeed. Helping companies overcome productivity and growth challenges by having the right people in the right positions using their strengths for a common goal is very satisfying.

What sets Green Key apart from other recruiting firms? 

Green Key puts people first. They care about their people and take care of us so that we may take care of or clients and candidates. During the peak of the Pandemic they asked that we take a mental health day once a week for a month. To spend time with family and nature and disconnect from all things electronic to prevent burnout. At a time when things were rocky and unpredictable, the partners were proactive in taking care of their employees health.

Where has Green Key provided service that is hard to match in an internal hiring team? 

Our recruiters are creative and resourceful. They network in places an internal hiring team may not think to look and use creative messaging to attract passive candidates. Due to the volume of people we speak with on a daily basis, we are able to provide real time facts and details to help our clients stay in the know and remain relevant and competitive to attract great talent.

What are the next steps for candidates interested in expanding their administrative job search?
