Internal Talent Acquisition Specialist

Attention recruiters looking for something different?

Can you sell a three day weekend every weekend to other recruiters and those looking to enter the industry?

How would you like to help build teams for one of the fastest growing, multi-award winning, progressive, people-centric businesses in our industry, that genuinely sells itself?

Oscar is going through extreme growth and we have ambitious plans to continue on a steep upward trajectory. The best news, we want you to enable it by attracting the very best entry-level and experienced talent London has to offer.
Our global HQ is in Manchester (we also have four, soon to be six US offices), but we want you to own all internal talent acquisition for our fab modern new office right by Cannon St. station, one of the City of London’s most desirable locations. As a statement of intent we have just moved into an exclusive self-contained space where the entire floor is ours, and we have two thirds of the office still to fill.

Joining our People & Culture team, you will have sole accountability and responsibility for attracting and taking talent through the recruitment process. So, there is a great balance of autonomy, but also support from the management in London as well as your colleagues in Talent Acquisition in Manchester and across the USA.

We are vibrant, we are sociable, we are modern and you will reflect and purvey this across all of your engagements with candidates that you will love speaking with and meeting. You are custodian of our brand, the first smiley face potential employees will see! You will also love engaging with your internal stakeholders, finding out what makes each team tick and what great talent will add to the mix in their group; but you won’t be subservient, you’ll read between the lines, you’ll consult and advise as well as deliver.

As the sole physical presence in this department in the London office (and when you are at home as we are hybrid), you will love being proactive and searching for solutions with a glowingly positive outlook on life!

Is it all genuinely as good as it sounds though?
Well for 2022 we have just been awarded:
  • 5th Best company to work for in the UK in the recruitment sector (all sizes)
  • 8th Best mid-sized company to work for in the UK across all sectors
We have been a top five recruitment company to work for three years in a row so this isn’t a flash in the pan! We have also been recognised as having ‘World Class Employee Engagement’, achieving the maximum three star accreditation, for the past four years consecutively.
Learning and Development is another key sector we that we are passionate about, earning the National L&D Special Award accredited by Best Companies for 2021. We are dedicated to your career development so there will be opportunities to progress quickly within this role.
We’re modern and our people come first. We’ve operated a hybrid environment and a 4.5 day week since Covid, and are currently trialling a four day week globally with Fridays off. We offer flex start and finish times as well as longer lunches to exercise or even walk your dog. 
We have financial experts to help advise you how to invest your commission, we look after your physical health with various levels of private medical support (can’t get a doctors appt – how does a 24 hour hotline sound?!), and we retain a psychologist to support mindfulness and develop techniques to support your life as a whole.
We are also passionate about other areas D&I, we aren’t just talk, search the #OscarWildcats hashtag. We also put our money where our mouth is by offering scholarships to students from poor socio-economic backgrounds. We support numerous charities and we have a focus group on sustainability, with a goal to get to carbon neutral as well as expand our renewable energy brand. 
We are successful and so are our staff, but we retain a boutique culture, nobody is just a number here.
