Nicole Kaiser


Onsite Talent Partner


B.F.A. in Photography & Design, The Art Institute of Portland


Good things come back around! Nicole came BACK to Xenium in July 2018 after a 1 ½ year break, and she currently works as an Onsite Talent Partner for one of Xenium’s clients. Recruitment is her primary responsibility, which consists of spending most days conducting phone screens, sitting in on interviews and helping to guide managers through the hiring process. During her time at Xenium, she has also helped managers create job descriptions, streamlined processes to expedite hiring needs, created interview questions and reviewed candidate profiles.

Prior to Xenium, Nicole started her career in recruiting when she worked as an HR Assistant for Organically Grown Company. After about four years in this role, she took some time off to focus on her degree. Her re-entry back into HR and Recruiting was a multi-client position with Xenium, helping one client with recruitment needs, but also working as a part-time HR Generalist for two other clients.

What brought Nicole to Xenium (twice!) is the support and variety that she gets here. She especially loves Xenium’s ongoing support of Onsites and the fact that they are well taken care of. She also loves the opportunity to try new positions, to learn new things and to gain insightful feedback on what can be done to better support the clients.

Nicole is a native Oregonian (the more rain, the better!) who grew up in Beaverton and received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Photography and Design from The Art Institute of Portland.

Most of her weekends are spent at the ice arena where she and her husband play ice hockey on a co-ed recreational team. When not on the ice, she is working on her photography business with newborns and families as the subjects – She is happiest when she is playing hockey and snuggling babies!
