Talent Acquisition, Recruiter, and Consultant

View my portfolio

Greetings! My name is Rob Lockard.

Leveraging my skills and experience, I am currently a solopreneur, working fractionally as a Lead Talent Acquisition and Recruiting Consultant at emineo (pronounced "em-in-e-o", which translates from Latin as “to be remarkable”) talent.

Innately, 16Personalities calls me a “Campaigner”, who is curious, perceptive, enthusiastic, an excellent communicator, festive, and good-natured.

Outside of my current fractional work and an insatiable appetite to “learn-it-all”, I have an interest in the outdoors, kayaking/canoeing, water sports, being a Dad, and volunteering with industry-advancing non-profits (having participated in both local and National Talent Acquisition and Human Resources leadership roles).

What clients say about me
Recently we hired Rob to guide us through a key employee hiring for our team. Rob beautifully blends the art (his experience & persona) with the science (Assessments) of "good fit" hiring...The assessment plus Rob's intuition is dynamic! If you need someone to help you identify team fit and then searching for that good fit, look no farther than Rob.

He is highly knowledgeable and skilled in recruiting, and he is supportive of helping others grow and succeed. He is dynamic and has the foresight on emerging tools and the impact those tools could make to business operations. For example, when generative AI was making the news, Rob was quick to provide resources and thought pieces on how those tools could transform recruiting, and the effects it could have on existing practices. He is the epitome of a trusted advisor, great leader and teammate
