About the role

Reporting to the recruitment services manager and supporting area recruiters, your primary focus will be to process end-to-end post-offer employment clearances for successful candidates. You’ll maintain electronic recruitment files and our applicant tracking system (ATS) and ensure candidate and manager queries are responded to in a professional and timely manner.


You’ll have lots of interaction with candidates, recruitment managers and support services staff. You’ll develop a good understanding of our recruitment processes and apply those in a consistent manner.  From time-to-time you’ll assist in organising interviews, as well as supporting recruitment events and assessment days.


This is a varied and fast-paced job so you must be able to respond to conflicting, changing and multiple priorities and keep candidates, hiring managers and recruitment specialists up-to-date. 

About you

Highly organised, proactive and flexible, you’re able to work as part of a busy team and independently. You'll have some experience as an administrator and have excellent oral and written communication skills. Experience of working with high volumes and tight deadlines is essential.


You have a detailed understanding of the Microsoft Office Suite, and Maths and English qualifications at GCSE Level (grade A-C) (or equivalent) or will be able to demonstrate competence at this level through assessment.

We offer a range of benefits including pension, Blue Light discount card, healthcare benefits and more.
