What can we tell you about this great organisation?

We don’t think that we are over egging the pudding when we say that this is a great business to work for. They are a great business that most people would love to have on their CV. You will also be pleased to know that the team here are a great bunch to work with and you will have a super boss!

Here is a little bit about what will be keeping you busy…

The People Director wants someone to help them get this business’ house in order from a recruitment perspective. Line Managers are doing their own thing and there is an opportunity to go in hear and really improve their approach to Talent Acquisition. They would like someone that can look at their agency relationships and manage this for the business while also doing a bit of direct sourcing yourself across a variety of operational and commercial roles. If you can demonstrate a good return on investment, which will not be hard to do, there will be a strong business case for this becoming permanent.

If you have experience of setting up a recruitment function in a small or medium sized business and are happy with some generalist recruitment, you could be just who they are after.

It really is a very nice place to work and you will see this very quickly when you speak to the lady that is hiring for this role. It is not a tough sell from our perspective and will make your life a lot easier when recruiting for them.

Some of the key activities of this role:

  • You will engage with Line Managers to develop resource plans and advise other members of the team and line managers on improving the effectiveness of resourcing.
  • This role will act as the go-to person accountable for PSLs, search consultants, agencies, negotiating framework agreements and fees/pricing.
  • If you can improve on the direct sourcing split (currently 0/100) this would be really advantageous. You will need to encourage and develop this approach so that you role provides as much value to the business as possible.
  • You will be responsible for all aspects of the candidate lifecycle including improving candidate experience and onboarding, issuing contracts etc.
  • Advising HR and business leadership on local legal/regulatory requirements and recruitment policies.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for someone with solid recruitment experience gained internally. We would like to see people that are used to helping businesses hire a variety of professionals.

Above all, you will be someone that is passionate about what they do with ability to work with professionalism but also importantly, good humour. The employees of this business love turning up for work and they look to work with like-minded people that bring the same level of commitment that they do.

The need for industry experience is not essential but some experience of medium sized businesses would be as you will be more likely to understand the resourcing challenges in a business of this size. You will not be a small cog in a large machine! This has a start-up feel to it but the business is cash rich and very successful.

The role is home based but as things return to normality, you will be office based 3 days per week but you can work from home once you have settled into the role. They would be very happy to consider people interested in part time or full time.

What else can we tell you?

Lots. Why not send us your CV and if you have time, a brief cover note outlining why this role is of interest and why you feel you are a good match and we can tell you more about this fantastic opportunity.
