Our client, a wholesale distributor, is at the cutting edge of the renewable and alternative energy sector and has significant and growing market share through its unrivalled product quality and service value proposition. Its customer base includes B2C and B2B. There has never been a better time to join them and to play a key role in the expansion of its warehousing and distribution capacity, initially across the UK and then Europe.
The first stage of this is an overhaul of the facility in North West, followed by an investment in a new facility in the Bristol area. Tentative further plans exist for additional capacity in the UK. Additionally, the business is expanding its operation in Europe, namely Germany.
It now wishes to strengthen its HR and Talent Acquisition Team with the appointment of an Interim Talent Acquisition Partner to head up high volume recruiting for its rapidly expanding warehousing/distribution centre operations. A permanent opportunity is also available.
Our client is looking for a graduate-calibre recruiter who knows that there's more to recruiting new staff than simply posting an advert and hoping for the best.
Due to the increasing numbers of people they need to bring into their business, they recognise the requirement to create a robust Talent Acquisition function. Your core focus will be to head up specific high volume recruitment campaigns to recruit operational staff for its expanding multi site warehousing operations in the North West/Yorkshire. The emphasis will be on attracting and recruiting talent directly via direct sourcing, talent attraction and social media, whilst proactively supporting senior warehousing and logistics operational leadership as the business grows and delivering a fantastic experience to candidates ensuring employee engagement and retention. You will undertake salary benchmarking to ensure that our client remains competitive to attract talent. You will undertake both telephone screening and first stage interviews alongside hiring managers.
As the Talent Acquisition Partner, you will use your skills and knowledge to develop an Employer Value Proposition and promote the company's brand in the broader marketplace. By developing a compelling online presence, and framework for capitalising on regional recruitment fairs, you'll create a talent pipeline of candidates interested in working for the company.
Our client is growing rapidly and needs to ensure they are attracting and onboarding the best calibre people. As such, you will need to work closely with department heads and the senior management team to understand the future requirements then create appropriate talent pipelines.
Having worked, ideally in an-house recruitment role, you'll know what constitutes a high-quality recruitment process at every stage, from the initial briefing, sourcing, and selection to the onboarding of new hires. You will be experienced in high volume in house recruitment, within any functional area eg warehousing and logistics, manufacturing and engineering, hospitality and catering etc and you'll be skilled with industry standard ATS systems.
Given the volume of recruitment required, you will need to develop relationships with trusted partner agencies and ensure their processes are of an equally high standard to yours.
Our client views this as a long-term, permanent position. However, due to the urgency of this requirement, they are happy to consider an interim role for someone to strengthen the talent acquisition function as a one-off project while they recruit the permanent team.
As you can see, there are many strands to this role that we'll need to discuss in more detail, so please indicate your interest by sending your CV, quoting reference LX1152301 to without delay
