TALENT ACQUISITION PARTNERS x 2

"Creating a Talent Acquisition function for a well-established and growing business in a highly desirable part of the UK".

£Very Competitive Benefits Bonus Relocation Assistance

Devon & Cornwall, South West (Hybrid Site/Remote Working)

Judging by the volume of people flocking to Devon and Cornwall at this time of year, it's a popular part of the country.

Maybe it's a favourite destination of yours, where you've harboured a desire to live and work but haven't found the right opportunity yet.

But, if you're an experienced Talent Acquisition Partner looking for the chance to work or to relocate permanently to this beautiful area, your wait may be over.

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. And that will be your core focus initially, although you will need to head up specific recruitment campaigns as well.

As the Talent Acquisition Partner, you'll be using 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 national and 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 highest calibre people at all levels of the business. 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 in an agency or in-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. Your experience will, ideally, stem from the pharma, biotech, or life sciences industry and you'll be skilled with industry standard ATS systems.

You may have to adopt a headhunt method for certain niche positions using direct sourcing tools, or you may decide to outsource to an external agency. 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 set up 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 LX 843212 without delay
