About The Role

As one of our Talent Resourcers, you will work closely within the People and Talent team to provide an excellent recruitment service to the studio. You’ll be joining our lovely Talent team working collaboratively to hire across different departments by sourcing and screening great talent.

You will be responsible for all aspects of the full cycle recruitment for your assigned departments. You will be a self-starter, prioritising studio needs alongside the Talent Acquisition Specialist and Talent Resourcer as well as developing your own communication and organisational skills. You will be one of the first people applicants interact with, so you must be welcoming, friendly, and approachable. Maintaining an online and social media presence is an important part of the role, however, the personal touch is just as important. This means you need to be outgoing, adaptable, and willing to get out and e-meet people.

You will be an essential part of the People and Talent team, being the first point of contact to external candidates and sources, as well as assisting with ad hoc tasks outside of your main recruitment responsibilities.

This role will suit a motivated person with a high degree of attention to detail, hungry for a role to progress within talent acquisition and a keen interest in working in Recruitment and/or People and Talent.  We are looking for personable and enthusiastic individuals who pride themselves on their organisational skills. It is essential that the successful candidate can hit the ground running, be a confident communicator who is keen to build strong relationships with candidates and business hiring managers alike. It would be useful if you have worked within a recruitment/HR environment (agency or in-house).  

The studio will be closed during the festive season so we will be reviewing applications in January 2021.
