Recruitment Manager, Human Resources

37 hours per week (full-time)

Are you an experienced internal recruiter with the ability to lead a team and influence stakeholders at all levels of the organisation? Are you passionate about providing a comprehensive recruitment service and helping to find the best talent for our charity? If so, this may be the role for you.   

At Family Action we transform lives by providing practical, emotional and financial support to those who are experiencing poverty, disadvantage and social isolation. We have been building stronger families since 1869 and today we work with more than 60,000 families in over 150 community based services, as well as supporting thousands more through national programmes and grants.

This is an exciting opportunity to lead our newly established Recruitment team as part of the wider HR team, expanding our existing recruitment administration function to a fully managed service that advises on best practice, upskills managers, and supports the organisation to attract and select the highest-quality candidates.

You will be taking the lead on modernisation of our recruitment processes, including implementation of an applicant tracking system. You will be working with internal stakeholders to develop our employer brand and to ensure that our approach to recruitment is inclusive and attracts a diverse selection of candidates. The successful candidate will need to be able to balance Safer Recruitment principles with the need to respond quickly to business need and recruit successful candidates efficiently. You will need to be able to analyse and make improvements to existing processes.

We are looking for a proactive and enthusiastic individual to support us in recruiting the right people at the right time and developing a highly effective recruitment service. You will be working as part of an influential HR team delivering the Workforce Strategy and contributing to our strategic objective of ‘Valuing Our People’.

We are committed to Equality, Diversity & Inclusion in all that we do and welcome applications from all sections of the community. We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, LGBTQIA+ candidates and candidates with disabilities because we are committed to increasing the representation of these groups at Family Action. We know that greater diversity will lead to even greater results for families and children and strive for our workforce to be truly representative of the diverse communities we support. We offer a guaranteed interview scheme for disabled applicants and will reimburse any travel costs associated with attending an interview. 

What will we offer you? 

We’ll offer you a generous pension scheme and leave entitlements, eye care vouchers, a cycle to work scheme and other great benefits. We are happy to talk flexible working. All roles in Family Action are open to a discussion about possible flexible working options, subject to business needs, and all new starters will have the right to make a flexible working request from day one of employment. We have an excellent wellbeing offer and we will invest in your professional development with on-going quality training and career development opportunities. You’ll join an established, supportive and high-performing team and have the opportunity to thrive in an innovative organisation that values your opinion, encourages learning and has the needs of children and families at its core.  

We are forward looking, ambitious and with a commitment to continuous improvement.  We are a people focused, can-do organisation, which strives for excellence in all we do and operates with mutual respect. If you share these values and behaviours and have the necessary skills then we look forward to hearing from you.
