Manchester is our people.
So, working in human resources in a council that is 100% focussed on our people should be right up your street.
Manchester is and always will be a city that buzzes with culture and innovation and pride – it is one of the great cities of the world, and the city council is no different – we are ambitious, proud of our heritage, focussed on the future and deeply connected to our people.
Our HR and OD teams are right at the heart of that buzz. It’s no accident that our symbol is the worker bee. Our people are hugely talented and resourceful and committed, and we are building our teams and adapting our ways of working as we go.
It is hugely important to us that the whole city council reflects the talent and diversity of Manchester, and that starts right here in HR and OD, so we particularly want to hear from talented and diverse people. Your background and qualifications are not as important to us as your ability to continue to learn and grow and get stuff done. We are about delivery.
The Specialist Recruitment Lead is central to our ambitions. You will be responsible for effective recruitment to key senior positions within the organisation. This role ensures the future supply and appointment of talented senior leaders by providing high quality, diverse appointments, representative of the communities of Manchester.
You will develop productive working relationships with senior leaders across the organisation, manage the end-to-end process of recruitment and selection of executive level posts in Manchester City Council, and deliver a great candidate experience. You will also manage key relationships with our Search partners and ensure EDI is at the heart of how they work, supporting the diversity and inclusion ambitions of the Council.
You will have strong demonstrable knowledge of the importance of effective resourcing strategies and processes with a track record of delivering effective improvement to ensure diversity and inclusion in recruitment approach and outcome. You will have worked effectively at senior and Director level and demonstrate the ability to manage multiple and complex recruitment programmes. You will have managed high value contracts, negotiated multiple bids and developed effective working relationships with search partners.
These kinds of roles in this kind of team in such a great organisation and city don’t come up very often so what are you waiting for? Get in touch, make an application, we can’t wait to meet you and hear what you can add.
