Tim Oyer
Vice President of Sales at Advanced RPO

For more than 20 years, Tim has been partnering with companies to help them hire better and smarter. As a skilled and experienced talent acquisition executive and sales leader at Advanced RPO, throughout his career, he’s taken on every project, phone call, and challenge with unrelenting dedication to client success. Ensuring a win-win situation for everyone – clients, candidates and Advanced RPO – is the very high bar he sets for himself and his team. That has been the foundation of the more than 400 successful RPO hiring programs he’s been proud to be a part of.

In his role as VP of RPO Solutions at Advanced RPO, he leads a team of talent acquisition experts who consistently deliver on client demands and take on hiring challenges with a creative, data-driven and results-driven approach. In the past year, Advanced RPO’s ability to pivot and successfully support several essential employers with mission critical hiring needs made him even more proud of the team. What differentiates a really successful hiring program from an average one is simple; investing time upfront to discuss and examine current and future hiring needs, goals and more. That way, the process is aligned to the business, our team is enculturated to your company, we’re structured to drive results, and a positive experience and continuous improvement isn’t just talked about quarterly.

Prior to Advanced RPO, he earned his stripes as a partner and founding member of two successful RPO startups, SSi (acquired by Aon) and The RightThing (acquired by ADP). These opportunities not only provided him the hands-on experience of what it means to truly tailor a solution to meet a client’s hiring needs, but also contributed to his deep understanding of the recruitment process and how it continues to evolve.
