Based in Manhattan, we offer a dynamic and flexible environment and the opportunity to help grow an innovative company serving clients that are working towards a better world.

About the Position

This is not a typical behind-the-scenes analyst role; we rely on our Search Analysts to represent On-Ramps and our clients to the sector. As key members of search teams, Search Analysts manage full-cycle elements of search engagements, including sourcing, screening, and guiding high-quality candidates throughout the recruitment process. In addition, Search Analysts produce client-facing communications and participate in weekly client calls. Search Analysts work on collaborative, search-based teams and, in many cases, on a variety of company-wide projects.

This position is an excellent fit for a relationship-savvy, organized, and driven individual who is energized by the opportunity to contribute to a leading firm in the mission-driven, talent space. If you are a strong project manager, enjoy relationship-building, value a collaborative (and fun!) environment, and are excited about attracting and securing top talent for innovative organizations across the growing social sector, we'd love to meet you.

Key responsibilities include:

Project/Search Management

  • Screen resumes, and source, schedule, interview, and assess candidates
  • Manage tasks and deliverables across multiple searches and projects involving a wide array of stakeholders, with guidance from other search team members

  • Research and stay up to date on social sector organizations, sector developments, and current events


  • Draft high-quality documents (meeting agendas, job descriptions, candidate assessments, etc.) that present information clearly and compellingly
  • Manage communication with existing candidates, and describe roles to prospective candidates
  • Present relevant information clearly on client calls, take meeting notes, and identify relevant next steps
  • Describe our work, process, differentiators, and other brand attributes effectively to candidates and clients

Relationship Management

  • Initiate relationships with new and existing candidates and connectors within the context of a search and more broadly across the social sector
  • Quickly establish rapport and build long-term relationships and trust with a diverse group of clients and candidates
  • Provide relevant information to clients and candidates to further establish On-Ramps as a trusted thought partner and advisor
Candidate Requirements:
  • Passion for working with innovative, social sector organizations and a belief that talent is a key lever for change in organizations
  • At least two years of professional experience, ideally in a social sector organization or in recruitment
  • Exceptional task and project management skills; ability to work independently in a fast-paced environment, meet multiple concurrent deadlines, organize time and priorities, and work well as a member of a team
  • Top-notch interpersonal and relationship-building skills and a strong customer service orientation; ability to collaborate and effectively interact with internal teams and diverse external stakeholders
  • Strong verbal and written communications skills
  • High level of integrity, trust, accountability, and judgment
  • Proven experience meeting and exceeding goals in a results-oriented environment
  • Entrepreneurial spirit with an ability to maneuver effectively in the face of ambiguity
