  • Drive all recruitment activity, supporting the attraction, identification and selection of future talent.
  • Manage the hiring process from the application stage to offer; screen and select candidates, evaluate technical and business skill level as well as culture fit, drive the interview and offer process, including reference checks and salary recommendations.
  • Create bespoke onboarding plans for new joiners and co-ordinate the roll out of a smooth onboarding process.
  • Support the integration of teams as part of our merger and acquisition strategies.
  • Work with legal counsel and external consultants to help ensure compliance with employment legislation
