What can we tell you about this interesting client of ours?

This opportunity is with a successful and diverse organisation operating a number of businesses within the food and food related industries. They supply a broad range of customers in retail, food services and manufacturing. They are performing incredibly well and are looking to grow substantially over the next 5 years. This growth will be underpinned by attracting, retaining and developing the best talent going. 

They are now looking for a Resourcing Manager with both strategic and operational recruitment experience to help them establish some best practice in terms of their approach to talent acquisition.

This business has a truly compelling story to tell and we are failing to find reasons why people would not want to work for them. This is an established business but in many respects, this will not be dissimilar to setting processes up from scratch in a greenfield site. You will genuinely get to help influence and develop how things are done. This will not be a boring role!

What will be keeping you busy?

You will be responsible for establishing great recruitment process. The business currently has a great HR team (we know this because we have placed a number of them) and they are managing recruitment off the side of their desks. They need someone that really knows what good looks like when it comes to internal recruitment. That will include identifying technology requirements, advertising partners and establishing a list of trusted and cost effective recruitment agencies (like us!).

You will play key role in reviewing how they use platforms such as LinkedIn and Glassdoor to build the employer brand. You will also be tasked with creating a first class candidate experience for people that apply to the business.

The business spend on recruitment over the last year has been fairly hefty with little or no direct sourcing so there will be a real opportunity for some quick wins here. This role will have a real impact and you will be able to show a real return on investment in your hire very quickly.

They have about 15 live vacancies currently so we are looking for someone that is also able to help with the delivery on these immediate requirements.

Who are we looking for?

Ultimately we want a strategic talent acquisition specialist that is happy to roll their sleeves up. You will be an experienced recruiter with an ability to manage a number of roles at any one time. As well as this you will be someone that knows what best practice looks like when it comes to talent acquisition and you will be able to put processes in place that meet the business’ needs. You will write a sourcing strategy that helps the business to get the best talent into the business whilst providing great value and a reduction in recruitment spend.

Industry experience is not essential but we would ideally like to see people that have experience of working in an operations and multi-site environment. People that have worked in FMCG, Manufacturing, or Retail might fit well with this role but we are not hung up on sector experience. You should have a strong track record in the private sector with businesses of a reasonable level of magnitude though.

We really want someone that is passionate about what they do. Because of this we really want someone that can take colleagues at all levels with them. You will be engaging, credible, professional and importantly good-humoured.

Sound good?
