Talent Acquisition Consultant - IT

Job Description

Position: Talent Acquisition Consultant

Market: IT

Salary: £27,000 - £32,000 + bonus

Location: Edinburgh

We are working on behalf of a specialist Technology recruitment business who are a market-leading provider of Talent and Resource solutions within the Data, Business Change and Technology sectors. They pride themselves for working collaboratively and on a consultative basis with their clients to gain a full understanding of the businesses needs and values to match the most talented people to their business. They are now looking to add experienced talent acquisition consultants, who understand the importance of providing a quality approach, to their established team of contract recruiters in Edinburgh.

This business has recently gone through a restructure and has won multiple contracts with future growth plans in place, so now requires support on delivering a high volume of contract IT candidates across various roles in Scotland. Key responsibilities include sourcing quality IT & Business change talent, identifying the best possible candidates, whilst working to tight timescales. You will also be responsible for managing various accounts, keeping hiring managers fully updated with candidate processes and managing expectations, whilst ensuring all admin and compliance is accurate. A large part of the role will be helping to build a candidate community where you can consistently keep track of candidates with specific skillsets, share market insights and guide candidates on job opportunities and CV advice.

In this role you will be accountable for the full candidate experience, so experience working in a resourcing or consultant role within a recruitment environment is essential. Sourcing experience within the Technology or Business change market is also preferable, however we can also consider candidates from other markets who have an interest in the IT sector. You must have experience headhunting and building candidate networks. This role will offer you the opportunity to take control of the candidate process and will initially give you exposure to account management, with the view to progressing into an Account Manager role.

If you feel you have the right experience and are interested in working for a forward thinking business who are at the forefront of the Data and Technology market, please get in touch for more information.
