Talent Sourcer

Job description

Are you always keen to try out a new approach? Do you love finding answers to questions and solving puzzles? Are you passionate about helping companies grow and want to impact their overall performance?

Sourcing is not just searching for candidates, going through pages and pages of LinkedIn profiles. It’s about fully understanding what type of person is needed, who they are and finding them even if they aren’t looking for a new job themselves. This role is an important one - it’s a challenge, and it’s one which greatly impacts the entire recruitment process.
