A mortgage recruiter leads talent acquisition to hire mortgage professionals such as mortgage loan officers, processors, and underwriters. They collaborate with the hiring managers and branch managers of a company to create a full-cycle recruiting process including candidate sourcing, qualification evaluation, interviewing, and negotiating offers. To source quality candidates, a mortgage recruiter leverages advertising and networking methods to find, attract, and funnel top prospects into the talent pipeline. They also keep detailed records of all applicant communications to foster relationships with job seekers. A mortgage recruiter generally works in an office full-time for a mortgage company, or in the financial services, or real estate industries.
