Job Snapshot

Job Description



Overview

With succession planning for future senior leadership the driving impetus, CORT is recruiting early to mid- career management candidates looking for a unique career advancement opportunity. Our Executive Leadership Development program will prepare our associate for key leadership positions in the near term and high visibility positioning for senior leadership in the future. 



Responsibilities

Upon hire, our ELD associate will have front line placement where they can be immediately challenged and provide value.  The associate will then rotate through various operational, and sales management roles.  These rotational assignments will give the ELD candidate insights and experience unique to our business and will serve as foundational for ensuing career opportunities. This developmental phase is designed to last 6 to 18 months. This period can be accelerated or protracted based on associate’s progress and organizational needs.   

At some point during or after the first 18-month program term, the executive candidate must not only be able to relocate but to make a commitment to relocate as a condition of hire.  Starting work locations could be in any of our 50 markets. Currently, we are focusing on placing candidates in Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, Cincinnati, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Raleigh, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, DC. Opportunities requiring relocation could be anywhere in the country but most typically regional in relation to original hiring location.



Qualifications

The ideal candidate will have an undergraduate degree focus in disciplines applicable to leading a business. MBA preferred but not required.  Candidates should have a minimum of 3 years of leadership experience that includes supervisory accountability for direct reports. Those with P&L responsibility will also be given preference.   

The candidate desired will be a builder of individuals and team, goal/results oriented, and a servant leader. Successful candidates will have a high emotional quotient that can be demonstrated in interview process.

This is not a position for those that desire to be a consultant but for those that want to lead a business. Candidates must have unrestricted and indefinite work authorization in the U.S.      



Additional Information

Senior Leadership Sponsorship

The hallmark of this program is the ownership CORT takes in our ELD candidate’s success.  Key members of our senior leadership team have been chosen to oversee, mentor and steward the associate’s development. In addition, our Vice President of Corporate Development will share in this responsibility and monitor progress. Finally, there will be a designated mentor within the starting district location that will guide the associate through the everyday process.
