It's amazing what you can accomplish when you don't care who takes the credit
Interested? Let’s talk...
You’ll be embedded into one of our clients as a Talent Executive. Sometimes this may mean being fully plugged into email, ATS, internal comms and so on, but always with the core purpose of supporting their Talent Acquisition initiatives through pipelining and sourcing of talent for their roles.
You’ll handle everything from sourcing to submission of talent to the hiring pipeline, often managed and overseen by one of our very own Talent Partners who you may work with on an account.
Emphasis is on identification, sourcing and building of pipelines, ensuring a healthy flow of candidates through each process. Whilst you won’t manage the entire end-to-end hiring process like a Talent Partner would, we will typically look to progress you into a Talent Partner role over time with the right exposure.
Aside from hands-on hiring of roles, it's vital you truly embed yourself into the culture of the business you are working with- getting involved with company- led initiatives and events, becoming one of them!
What does this role look like?
- Embed as a Talent Executive for one of our clients
- Fully plug into their business; Email, Slack, Comms, Culture etc
- Take charge of sourcing talent across a variety of roles, filling pipelines and getting the best talent into the process
- Combine a mixture of both outbound sourcing and inbound application management (often candidates coming into the clients ATS), handling initial screening calls too.
- Ensure sourcing objectives are met (e.g. 2 hires per month)
- Ensure monthly renewal of your account
- Maintain healthy feedback scores from your client each month
- Contribute to the sourcing of other tech roles across the scout business alongside the team.
- Contribute to the growth, and shaping of the scout business as we continue our journey to becoming a leading name in the embedded talent space.
We’re pretty open minded, but we think you’ll likely be able to show the following experience:
- 1+ years experience in tech recruitment
- Evidence of strong sourcing ability across key hiring tools including LinkedIn.
- Previous experience hiring for tech scale ups
- Super organised
- A need to ‘over communicate’
- Team Player - a ‘less me, more we’ attitude
- Proactive, positive, creative mindset
