Cecil Jackson

Meet Cecil Jackson—Recruiter extraordinaire, track coach champion, and all-around unique human being!   With 13 years at PACE and becoming a key player on our recruiting team, he will tell you it all starts with his passion to make a difference. When we asked him to describe his favorite thing about his job it didn’t take him long to share his thoughts – “Helping candidates find the job of their dreams. When I make that “you got the job” call, I love that feeling of excitement that comes through the phone – that’s priceless.” 

Cecil’s genuine passion for connecting all levels of candidates – from career starters to savvy professionals – with their dream roles is at the core of his success as a recruiter. He also believes in making sure that each interaction he has with a candidate or teammate has impact…. that they know that in that moment they are the only person who matters. His teammates think he does that really well.

Cecil also believes in the in the power of supporting the candidates he places after they’ve started work.   “Following up with a candidate after each milestone, being supportive of their goals every step of the way thru their job search journey” is what Cecil considers to be one of the most important roles of a professional recruiter. Ongoing support and feedback between recruiter and candidate ensure that the job opportunities we present are the right fit for them!

His supervisor gave a slightly different comment about what makes Cecil special – “As one of our senior recruiters, I love that Cecil still “turns over every rock”. He’s a 24/7 recruiter. who knows how to find the hard to find.”

Outside of PACE Cecil finds his passion volunteering as a youth track and field coach. He actually founded the Spokane Speed Academy in 2015, where he has trained young athletes to compete at the highest levels of track and field. The goal is to not only encourage these young athletes to “do their best” but to put them in a place to earn athletic and academic scholarships at colleges across the nation. Cecil makes sure his athletes get seen. 

Cecil’s dedication to the Spokane sports and educational community and the positive impact he makes through his passion for coaching aligns seamlessly with PACE’s mission to Make a Difference.

Cecil will also tell you that having served in the US Navy for 25 years, that the world has been his university. His “let’s get it” personality and diverse world experiences contribute to the unique perspective he brings to the PACE family.If you catch Cecil outside of work, chances are he’s cheering for his favorite NFL team—the Dallas Cowboys, playing a bit of golf with a buddy, going to track meets all over the nation, or spending time with his five children.
