You will also have a responsibility to oversee the recruitment process, working with local employers to identify their recruitment needs and to secure opportunities for our participants.

This position is available on full time, FTC contract until April 2022.

You will have a comprehensive development program as part of induction together with peer to peer learning, a formal development plan and support at every step of the way to set you up for success.

We offer a buddy system, a digital induction module and a close-knit community of experts and leaders across the Group to support the sharing of best practice and encourage individual growth.
