Why Join Oscar?

Listed 5th on Best Companies Top 100 Best Small Companies to work for 2021, of which we have been listed the number 1 small Recruitment Company, as well as being recognised as the fastest growing recruitment agency in the North West!

We are leading specialists within the Technology and Digital sector across UK, USA, and mainland Europe; we thrive off our cohesive culture and consistent year on year growth - last year 87% increase in Turnover and 40% growth in staff.

You will get all the tools you need to be a success and be surrounded by those on the same mission as you!

We are modern! We use data and stats to help but do not measure you by archaic KPI's like hours on the phone - we work out what good looks like for YOU & your market and we help you consistently achieve. We utilise personal branding, digital touchpoints and techniques fit for 2021; we still love making phone-calls too though.

There is no secret to our success; it is down to our people

The Role

This is an exciting and dynamic role which encompasses all layers of true Talent Acquisition. Your days will be varied and diverse, with the core goal being to successfully identify, attract and source top trainee and experienced talent to support and enhance the growth of UK Offices and Recruitment brands.

We are searching for a self-motivated professional who has an unrivalled determination to generate results. You will be working in an environment surrounded by successful individuals, so good really needs to be great!

Working internally to attract talent requires a lot of persistence especially when it comes to securing exceptional passive talent, your days will be spent prospecting so having a natural hunger to pick up the phone and make a high volume of calls to identify and headhunt Oscar's next hire is essential.

Understanding your stakeholder's requirements and needs is the leading ingredient to creating a robust recruitment strategy. You will be encouraged to drive ideas as we desire a mixture of methods in your recruitment skills portfolio to leverage all aspects of the role. You will design and write job descriptions, build person profiles, introduce proactive sourcing techniques, and continue to drive our internal/external referral scheme as well as finding innovative ways to engage with experienced and emerging talent through networking events, career fairs and university events.

Curiosity is the key for placing top talent in this role; so, your eyes will need to be constantly on the prize! In an ever-changing industry with lots of pace and competition we crave someone who is commercially savvy.

Day to day you will have full support and guidance where clear direction will be provided for you to achieve the best outcomes and to ensure Oscar is being represented in the best possible way.

About you

You will need to be a strong communicator with a natural ability to build rapport with a wide range of different individuals. Ideally, you will have had experience in a similar role in a comparable environment either within agency or internal. Learning and acquiring information and knowledge will be second nature to this individual so if you haven't been in Recruitment but have Sales experience or have graduated recently and want to fully immerse yourself in an all-encompassing Talent Acquisition role then this could still be for you!
