Job description

We are recruiting for a commercially gifted, multi-talented, industry expert recruitment manager who can own the role of driving international headcount growth to expand our local and global presence.

Are you organised, meticulous, inquisitive? Do you want to operate at board level impacting growth? Does this sound like you?

This is what you’ll be doing:

A widely varied role that will cover an expansive range of Talent Acquisition and people engagement activities. From top-level strategy and working with the senior board of directors, through to working with individual teams and their heads of department to attract, retain and develop people that fit our culture.

These can include:

  • Organisational structuring: Designing and developing organisation charts within each business/brand/vertical to reverse engineer the hiring process

  • Talent Mapping: Mapping the market of specialist recruiters potentially suited to working within our vibrant, rewarding, people first organisation

  • Succession planning: Recognising and planning for skill gaps by assessing talent risk and effectively planning successors within established business areas due to regular internal promotions

  • Leveraging Tech: Maximising ROI on available technologies to ensure a rigorous and deep-dive approach to talent acquisition

  • Stakeholder engagement: Engaging and building trust/respect with MD’s of specialisms and Team Leaders to become an embedded internal hiring partner

  • Working to Targets: Achieving hiring, headcount and budgetary targets connected to challenging growth targets

  • Directing Marketing briefs: Building the employer brand and developing campaigns and emotive content that brings prospects ‘behind the scenes’

  • Graduate Attraction Strategy: Build and deliver an effective Associate Consultant hiring programme to attract the new generations of successful recruiters

  • Strategic Acquisition: Build and deliver effective experience hire strategies to ensure a continuous pipeline of value-add talent

  • People engagement: Survey, support, engage, re-engage and effectively enhance cultural alignment via satisfaction surveys

  • Stakeholder engagement: Working with key stakeholders, HR & People team design and deliver an effective career development pathway ensuring personal development is front and centre


The experience you’ll bring to the team:

We’re looking for an experienced recruitment professional who can effectively manage a multitude of priorities, and run off their own initiative in a targeted manner with conviction.

  • Experience in the below is highly desirable;

  • 360-degree agency recruitment in a challenging candidate short market

  • Exposure to time intensive volume recruitment

  • Some experience working in management with key stakeholders

  • Experience identifying, attracting and securing passive and hard to reach candidates

  • Linkedin, CRM, job board and Boolean searching

  • Internal recruitment/HR experience

A big benefit (not essential) is possessing experience in recruitment marketing and how to manage differing marketing messages to different audiences.

And this is what you’ll get in return:

No two days are the same as you’ll be utilising a breadth of skills, as well as being able to develop yourself and the department.

We boast one of Cardiff’s most modern and state-of-the-art offices. We’re known for being a team of professional Digital Transformation recruiters with exacting standards, an enviable client base and a market leading suite of services.

The salary will be dependent on experience, and we offer a range of perks through-out the year from summer/Christmas parties, quarterly team events, on-site parking (important for Cardiff!) and local gym memberships, to name a few.
