Talent Acquisition Partner for leading global pharmaceutical company in Cambridge, £350 per day outside IR35.
Your new company
A leading global pharmaceutical company with headquarters in Cambridge is looking to recruit a Talent Acquisition Partner to attract talent into Bio Pharmaceuticals R&D team. A 6-month contract to start with, likely to be extended.
Your new role
As a Talent Acquisition Partner, you will be working as part of a cutting-edge in-house Talent Acquisition Function. You will be responsible for delivering Talent Acquisition solutions in partnership with the Hiring Manager and Talent Acquisition Lead to proactively identify and fill vacancies with talented individuals with the right capability and skills in a fast-paced challenging market.
This will involve proactive activity, developing and executing sourcing plans, building talent pipelines, conducting direct sourcing activity, research, screening, interviewing, pre-selecting, offer management and managing the hiring administration process.
This role is full lifecycle recruitment in a very hands on and fast-paced environment where you will advise, coach and influence hiring managers to ensure best in class service delivery to the business and candidates.
You will build strong trusting relationships both with internal stakeholders and candidates and ensure both have a good experience with Talent Acquisition throughout the process.
You will work with 3rd party vendors on occasion for niche hard to fill roles but you will be targeted on a direct fill rate - utilising our internal Talent Scout for senior hires and internal recruitment marketing teams for campaigns. Collating feedback and providing hiring metrics and data analytics on performance and reporting to identify areas for continuous improvement will also be key in this role.
What you'll need to succeed
We are looking for individuals who will have experience of the full life cycle recruitment process ideally with a background working in complex in-house or MSP or RPO environments. A background in BioTech or Pharma recruitment would be an advantage but it is not essential. Equally, a background in a highly regulated sector like energy would also be suitable.
Most importantly we are looking for an experienced recruiter who will have proven experience sourcing talent using various channels and thinking outside the box to go above and beyond expectations. Strong communication skills and proven senior stakeholder management a must. You will possess excellent persuading and influencing skills with a customer focused and results orientated approach. You will be able to push back and overcome objections by demonstrating your expertise.
What you'll get in return
You will be working as part of a cutting-edge in-house Talent Acquisition Function for a global pharmaceutical company based in the heart of Cambridge and this is a great opportunity to engage, inspire, persuade and influence at a senior level.
You will receive a competitive pay rate of up to £350 per day. This role is outside IR 35.
Working in the Cambridge office 2 days every 2 weeks currently, with the view to increase that in the future.
