Your job as Talent Acquisition Specialist will be to identify candidates for roles across our entire Sales division. We don't expect you to have experience in Sales recruitment but you will need a desire to learn from our experts and the ability to quickly pick up new areas to position opportunities to candidates.

With a broad range of recruitment experience gained in-house or with an agency you'll be comfortable prioritising your workload and maintaining constant communication with hiring managers. Candidate and hiring manager experience are key to maintaining our brand reputation so you'll work proactively to ensure a consistent and positive experience.

We've invested heavily this year in recruitment technology and sourcing tools so you'll have a LinkedIn Recruiter account, access to premium job boards and a world-class Applicant Tracking System (Greenhouse) to help you achieve your goals.

As part of a UK and global Talent Acquisition team, you'll collaborate and share best practice ideas, spotting trends in recruitment marketing and technology that would benefit yourself and PHMG. We have executive board support to revolutionise our approach to Talent Acquisition this year. You'll have the chance for personal development through working on projects and initiatives to improve our recruitment technology, marketing and assessment approaches.
