Recruitment & HR Manager (Part time)

We’re looking for a HR and recruitment professional to work on a part-time basis to aid our rapid growth.

Why You?

Are you looking for an exciting and challenging role whilst having the flexibility of fitting working life in with the school run?

We’re looking for someone to assist us with our increasing recruitment needs, building relationships with potential candidates in the local area, screening and shortlisting candidates for interviews, and running an on-boarding process to aid employee satisfaction and retention.

This role would be suitable for someone with prior experience in a previous role, that perhaps wants to get back into recruiting with the flexibility of working on a part-time basis.

Our Recruitment & HR Manager will:

  • Have experience in recruiting candidates through the entire application process (from screening CV’s, phone interviews, setting up interviews with senior-level management and making offers)
  • Have experience recruiting for roles in a highly specialist field, at a wide range of experience levels and pay grades
  • Be able to identify suitable candidates by culture fit, and able to assess applicants based on personality, values and fitting in with the culture of the business
  • Have experience head-hunting potential candidates, identifying those with suitable skillsets and approaching via LinkedIN and other means
  • Have excellent communication and relationship-building skills
  • Be able to multi-task and good organisational skills, allowing you to manage your own time and workload
  • Be proactive and ultra-organised, able to establish their own processes for running an efficient recruitment operation with often high demands and short turnaround times
