We think that this business is a bit special…

This business has a truly compelling story to tell and we are failing to find reasons why people would not want to work for them. The business that you will be working for has opened a new office in Reading and needs to hire 80 technology professionals. A lot of the leg work on sourcing candidates has been outsourced to a recruitment partner. You will be brought into makes sure that the business hires the right people and that the recruitment process is project managed effectively.

We don’t want to tell you who they are just yet as that will ruin the surprise but it is a great business with colleagues that are great to work with.

What will be keeping you busy?

Whilst there are 80 hires within IT that need to be made, this is not a bums on seats recruitment job, it is far more holistic than that. They want someone that can look at selection and onboarding processes and help to upskill managers to enable them to hire the right people. It is not just about making sure people have the correct technical skills for the roles that they will be doing, but making sure that they possess the correct behaviours to be a long-term fit and success within the business.

Metrics are important and they want to make sure that data is gathered and reporting is provided around ongoing recruitment. You will work closely with the recruitment partner (agency) that they have contracted with and make sure that they are hitting their SLAs both in terms of timescales and quality of candidates. With a large number of hires, there can be a tendency to just get people in. It is key that the very best people are hired for the business and your role will be about working closely with the business to ensure that this happens.

You will conduct interviews and coach line managers on doing this effectively. There will be other roles that are not passed across to the recruitment partner that you might be able to advise on direct sourcing strategies for. If you can help the business to reduce agency spend and demonstrate some real added value then this will go down well with the business.
