Were looking for an experienced recruiter to join our Early Careers team who recruit our graduates, apprentices and placements in the UK. The role is part time and we are looking for someone ideally 3 days a week for the period of 12 months to cover maternity but would be interested in hearing from you if you wanted to work slightly more.

To do this role youll certainly need to have a passion for early careers, like variety and working in a high volume, fast paced environment and love providing exceptional customer service. Although we have recruitment cycles theres never a time when were not busy so you would come in and hit the ground running to support the delivery of our graduate and apprentice recruitment. Youll also need to be willing to provide support wherever its needed to help the team deliver their requirements for the cycle ahead. Ideally you will have graduate and or apprentice recruitment experience but if you havent wed still like to hear from you. As long as you have some solid recruitment experience, are a quick learner and like new things with a real passion for early careers youll be fine and well teach you what you need to know.

So you get a feel for the role, heres some of the things youll be doing:

Support the team with the delivery of graduate and apprentice recruitment which will involve taking responsibility end to end for a number of roles from attraction through to onboarding
Manage a high volume of candidates through our selection process providing an exceptional customer service and an outstanding candidate experience at all times
Theres lots of business engagement involved and although the team will support you youll need to feel comfortable meeting and talking with the business and discussing how early careers recruitment operates, discussing candidates and operational needs and supporting with the shortlisting process
Use our ATS which we use for our early careers recruitment, again well train you but youll want to have used systems before for candidate management in a recruitment environment
Get involved in our events schedule and university engagement by attending events and supporting the delivery of skills sessions and advice to students
Travel to and manage the delivery of assessment centres for graduates and apprentices across the UK guiding the business in making the right offer decisions on the way and extending offers to candidates
Get involved in the ongoing improvement of our early careers recruitment through various projects

Youll need some solid recruitment experience for this role and have worked with high volume where its constantly busy and fast paced. So heres some of the things that were looking for you to demonstrate to enable you to do deliver:

Highly organised with a structured approach to work to ensure you always deliver whats expected of you. Youll take ownership and responsibility and have the support of the team around you but need to ensure you deliver and juggle priorities well whilst being self-managing a lot of the time
If youve run graduate assessment centres before then great but if not then well expect you to be able to pick things up with our training but you will need to understand the importance of recruitment best practice, employment law and how to manage candidates fairly and guide the business to do the same
Great IT skills in Microsoft Office, particularly Word, Excel and PowerPoint and be comfortable with systems as youll be using our ATS to manage candidates
Excellent customer focus, with the ability to recognise and respond to the diverse needs of business managers and candidates alike
Build strong relationships with people, getting close to your colleagues, your business stakeholders and candidates
Like following process where there needs to be and comfortable to look for flexible improvements where the opportunity exists
Given the nature of the role youll need to be happy being mobile as at times there will be plenty of travel and there will be some overnight stays. The days are sometimes long but if you love early careers recruitment like we do then youll feel the rewards on a regular basis.
