Job Description

Macildowie HR are working exclusively on a retained basis with an organisation based in Leicester that are going through an exciting period of change! The organisation are looking for a Recruitment Officer to work alongside the Recruitment Administrator to push forward the recruitment process and ensure a great candidate experience. This is a permanent position, based in central Leicester offering between £21,000-£24,000 plus other benefits.

The Role

Reporting in to the Head of HR Operations, you will update the current recruitment process and system to create a better experience for all involved. You will adapt the style of communications to match the organisation and ensure that all communications received are fitting with the brand and leave a positive impression

You will look at the current job descriptions and 'jazz' them up accordingly in order to attract the right calibre of candidate for various roles whilst sharing what it is like to work for the organisation, the culture and the opportunity.

You will identify new ways to build pipelines and will continue to look at current avenues and what the organisation can do to maximise time spent at job fairs etc.

Some reporting will be in this role as you will also work closely with the HR Business Partner to share weekly/monthly stats around time to hire, starters/leavers, demographics of the business and what sites have brought in the most candidates. You will then read and interpret this data ready to share it with the HRBP

Social media is a huge part of this role as the organisation are yet to fully get it off the ground and really want someone who has a strong background within the social space to put the organisation on the map and really market it!

This is also a fantastic opportunity to work on large scale HR projects including developing a Graduate training scheme alongside L&D and rebranding the onboarding piece.

The Candidate

The organisation are looking for someone with a passion for recruitment but also high standards. They are wanting someone with a spark, someone who has lots of ideas that you can try out as this role is almost a blank canvas!

Creativity and flair must be something you encompass as rewriting job specs and posting exciting and inviting job advertisements across social sites is very important to the organisation

They want someone who can think broadly, but understands the customer service element of the role as you will be dealing with a whole host of people and this may be their first time dealing you so it must be a positive one!

Written skills are important, as are being a self-starter but the organisation, and definitely the HR, Recruitment & L&D team all work together as one big team so team working is of extreme importance

With a friendly, open and honest culture who invests in its people and the local community, this is a fantastic opportunity to make a difference and add commercial value to an organisation going through change!
