Job Description


Talent Acquisition Coordinator

6 month Fixed Term Contract

Homer Road Solihull / Home based during COVID

Circa £26,000 per annum plus benefits & 25 days annual leave


Here at the Serco recruitment team we're responsible for hiring people that deliver essential public services in defence, transport, justice, immigration, healthcare and citizen services. 

As our new Talent Acquisiton Coordinator, you'll sit within our Shared Services function assisting in the end-to-end process for Group and Corporate recruitment, with specific focus on Finance roles. Day-to-day you'll be consulting with Hiring Managers on recruitment needs, advising on suitable attraction methods and ensuring roles are advertised in line with our talent brand. D&I is important to us, so you'll be an ambassador to all your stakeholders - ensuring that there is a diverse and inclusive selection process and challenging your customers appropriately. 

Then once candidates are in the system, you'll work to qualify and sift suitable candidates, finalising a shortlist in accordance to the hiring manager's needs. You'll support in arranging interviews as well conducting general administration. Importantly, you'll be delivering the offer to the successful candidate and liaising with the business to onboard them.

Our recruitment team have exciting plans to grow and develop this year, so whilst this is an initial 6-month contract there is the potential for this to become a permanent position.

About you

To be successful in this role you need to be organised, able to plan and prioritize multiple recruitment campaigns, and be a real people person. So, as well as having good verbal and written communications skills you'll be naturally organized and comfortable dealing with a variety of tasks. You'll be speaking with candidates and with other members of the team daily, so you'll need confidence and professionalism even when under pressure. 

We use a variety of online tools and technology, so you'll be happy working with Office 365 applications and ATS technology. You will need strong experience within a recruitment environment - either in-house, RPO or recruitment agency - ideally with experience of recruiting Finance roles.

Please note; whilst this role is home-based during COVID you will be expected to travel twice weekly to our Office in Homer Road, Solihull.
