Someone who takes charge, takes the lead and drives through the recruitment working in close partnership with the hiring managers and directors. Relationships are everything in this set up and yours with your hiring managers will be what enables you to advise the best way to hire.

“I will work with you closely on your long-term development and progression which can take different routes depending on your interests and strengths.

“To be successful in this role you’ll have a good record in recruitment, managing clients or, if internal, hiring managers, to a high standard. We’re always looking at the candidate and hiring manager experience. Your contribution to new ways we can develop this and the strong delivery of this for each party is very important.
