Careers that Change Lives

At Medtronic, our strategic growth is directly dependent on our ability to consistently find, attract, and hire the highest caliber talent available. Critical to achieving success in this area is proactive candidate and talent development.
As an Executive Search Consultant, you will provide counsel to hiring leaders and influence talent decisions. This involves building relationships with executives to ensure proactive identification of external talent needs and speed/pace of hire is met by partnering to support hiring strategy and objectives. You will have a clear understanding of external search capabilities, providing expert counsel on when to leverage internal recruiters and when to activate external search, based on market, capability and staffing landscape.

You will build a network of potential candidates with a focus on understanding the labor market for critical areas to identify and maintain strong, diverse talent pipelines. This includes proactive talent sourcing and partnerships with internal and external stakeholders to optimize search strategies that attract and secure top talent. You will manage retained search firm relationships and protocol to ensure a high-quality, robust talent search and candidate experience.

This is an exciting opportunity to influence the executive recruiting and hiring landscape at Medtronic. You will lead and define innovative ways to further raise the bar on how Medtronic sources and recruits external executive talent.

We believe that when people from different cultures, genders, and points of view come together, innovation is the result —and everyone wins. Medtronic walks the walk, creating an inclusive culture where you can thrive.

There is a preference to have this role reside in Minneapolis, MN, however, would be open to someone working remote.

You can grow your career with us - we hope you’ll consider joining our team!
