Hackney is London's most diverse and dynamic borough. Stretching from the edge of the City, to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, it is an area of rapid economic growth, particularly in the tech, media, fashion and other creative industries. Hackney has more green space than any other inner London borough, some of the capital's best schools, and first class transport connections, which combined with excellent local public services and a thriving arts, cultural and retail sector, are fast making it one of London's most popular areas to live, work and visit. The challenge for Hackney is to make sure that the borough's economic growth provides benefits for everyone who lives here, and to create opportunities that will transform the lives of local people.
We know that staff are key to our success and we are seeking people with ambition, creativity and commitment to our values to help us achieve the best for the people of Hackney.
Hackney Council is looking for someone with a background in recruitment to join our recruitment team. Attracting the right people to work with us helps ensure we can deliver high quality, cost effective services. You will play an important part in helping us make Hackney a place for everyone.
As Lead Recruiter you will work with managers across the Council, helping attract job seekers from private and public sectors. You should have experience recruiting to all levels, including some hard to fill roles. You will need great communication skills, be able to offer advice, influence and use your expertise to deliver positive outcomes.
Day to day you will work with managers to understand their recruitment needs. You will liaise with the Recruitment Manager to design recruitment strategies, aiming to use direct networking, campaigns and other methods to develop talent pools. You will help screen applicants and provide information and feedback to them as needed.
You will need to be adept at a range of IT systems, including applicant tracking systems. This is a busy environment so you need to be highly organised and able to prioritise your own work, delegating to others as needed. You should have a working knowledge of employment legislation and best practice, and show your commitment to ongoing professional development.
At Hackney, we go that extra mile for our people; we offer a work environment which is stimulating, fast moving and supportive, giving you the chance to use your skills and develop new ones within a high profile organisation.
