Talent Acquisition Manager
Talent Acquisition Manager with a fascinating and well-known business…
Location: West London (On the Central Line)
Salary: Circa £55-65k per annum
Contract type: Permanent, full-time
This business is definitely a bit special…
Our client is all about British fashion that’s the enemy of ordinary. Unmatched quality. Incredible service. That’s what they do best. They sell clothes that people love and this keeps customers coming back demanding more, more, more.
What can we tell you about this fantastic role?
They have big ambitions for their talent acquisition agenda and this role is critical for them to realise their strategic plans. This role is about delivering an amazing experience for candidates wanting to join the business and encouraging the very best people to join. They will be looking to you to shape and coordinate their talent acquisition strategy, improve their approach to direct sourcing and reduce their agency spend.
They are happy to hire someone with potential that knows what good looks like. This is a genuine opportunity to take a step forward in your career. You’ll have the chance to take a leading role in creating their plans for the coming years building the pipeline of great talent. As they grow they’re looking for game changing talent in all areas of the business and this role is crucial at helping ensure that they attract the right people.
This is a super opportunity for someone with a passion for talent, leadership and learning who is keen to drive change within an exciting and growing organisation so if you want to be part of a truly exciting change agenda then this could be the right opportunity for you.
What will be keeping you busy?
Eighty percent of your time will be spent on managing the internal recruitment team and on operational improvement. The remaining twenty percent will be devoted to filling roles (you are likely to have more involvement with senior hires).
You will develop direct sourcing strategies that will enable the attraction of more passive jobseekers into the business. You will also create a first class candidate experience and act as a true business partner to help meet strategic objectives.
Who are we looking for?
Whilst you will have 4 direct reports, you do not need prior line management experience. There'll be plenty of support in developing your management skills. The client would like to see people that have worked in-house and if you also have some prior agency experience that would be no bad thing as you will be used to working at pace.
If you have held good operational and hands-on recruitment experience and know what good looks like, we would like to hear from you. You don’t have to have led a recruitment function previously so this role would make a great stepping stone.
You will be someone with a genuine interest in the future of recruitment. The business is not ready to adopt AI for interview purposes, but they would like someone that is interested in this sort of thing and can drive innovation.
Industry experience is not important. If you have worked in a retail, creative or technology focused environment, great, but more important than anything is attitude and potential.
They are a very values led business. They want people that are passionate, joyful and creative.
