Job description:

What will I be doing?

We are looking for more than one recruiter in the coming months, and as one of those successful recruiters you would;

Manage a caseload of vacancies across multiple businesses
Work closely with hiring managers to find the best people for the job
Work closely with the Recruitment Manager to significantly reduce agency spend, using innovative techniques to source for challenging vacancies
Be jointly responsible for making the new function a success, you will collaborate with your colleagues, and work flexibly to develop the service we offer and be a fundamental part of its success
Be our technical recruitment specialist in your functional areas. By using your existing knowledge and ability to learn new roles quickly, you will find the best talent within our technical areas

Am I who you are looking for?

First and foremost we always want to recruit talented people that align well with our values and way of working; we innovate, we collaborate, we’re agile, we act with entrepreneurial spirit, and we’re supportive of and close to our customers. Does this sound like you?

For the recruitment role specifically it is important that you have:

It is essential that you will have an understanding and knowledge within engineering and/or manufacturing.
The confidence to speak with hiring managers and candidates regarding your areas and roles
Permanent recruitment experience, sourcing for challenging vacancies under tight deadlines
The ability and passion to innovate whilst finding the best candidate for a job - a recruiter whose sales are more important than the quality of recruitment services they deliver would not be right for this role.
A collaborative approach – we’re building a team that will work well together, and are motivated by the desire to make that team a success.
An aspiration to make your mark and have a positive influence on the success of the recruitment function - we'd like to meet recruiters who are results-driven, as if it were your own business.
The ability to cultivate meaningful customer relationships, not only with your candidates but with your internal customers too.

With such a significant presence we are proud to offer our employees a career without boundaries… Are You In?

What will I get in return?

Working as part of the wider Saint-Gobain group, we are able to offer a competitive starting salary and benefits package. In addition, you will have access to a career without boundaries - this could see you progressing within the recruitment team as it grows, or in one of the other 30+ businesses in the UK and even into different functional areas. Progression in Saint-Gobain isn’t always upwards; talented employees also move into new and exciting functions or indeed overseas, to one of the 67 countries in which we operate.
