What does your job involve?
My job involves identifying ambitious and talented people to join us here at Search!
What is a typical day like for you?
My usual day will go something like this:
9am: Morning meetings (or Zooms!) with the team to make a plan for the day
10.30am: I’ll spend some time speaking with stakeholders across all areas of the business to understand their current needs and identify areas of growth
12pm: Lunch time!
1pm: Social media time – I’ll be writing engaging job adverts and LinkedIn posts to highlight priority vacancies, before networking and reaching out to potential new recruits via direct message, job boards or applications
3pm: Time for some telephone pre-screens to brief candidates on vacancies, and to find out about their ambitions, their experience and what they are looking for in a new role
4.30pm: Calling a candidate to present a job offer – the best part! – before managing their next steps and on-boarding process
How did you become a talent acquisition specialist?
I got into recruitment through being approached directly by the Internal Recruitment Manager after putting my CV online – I’d done some internal recruitment at my old company but came into Search as an agency-rookie!
What is Search like as a place to work?
