About the role

As we continue to grow our Technology business at a rapid rate we’re looking for driven and creative tech recruitment professionals to join us to help drive this growth. If you thrive on hunting for technology talent in a competitive market and want to work as part of an expert team in a high growth, inclusive environment with access to the latest recruitment technologies then this could be the role for you.

Here in the Tesco recruitment team, we play a significant role in the development and success of our business - our world is fast paced and demanding, but hugely rewarding.  We are also one of the largest in-house recruitment teams in the UK, so if you love recruitment and are passionate about your career, you will have plenty of opportunity to develop and progress here.

We are a hybrid working team blending office and remote working.  Our Welwyn Garden City office is where we connect, collaborate and innovate in-person. Talk to us about how this can work for you.

The Hiring Manager for this role is Toni Weston.

You will be responsible for

  • Proactively sourcing and hiring great talent for Tesco Technology, this may be for a specific technology vertical or could be across multiple verticals as the business needs
  • Using social and professional media platforms to attract passive candidates, building talent pools and candidate pipelines to service future hiring needs of the business
  • Gathering and sharing candidate and market data and insights to influence improvements such as changes to salary bands, improvements to processes etc.
  • Gathering leads and promoting our Employer Brand through networking, Social Media, events and other means
  • Successfully delivering large scale recruitment activity projects within fast-paced timeframes
  • Championing the candidate experience and Diversity and Inclusion at all times

You will need

  • Strong expertise in the 360 recruitment delivery cycle, with the ability to influence and consult at all stages of the process
  • Strong stakeholder management skills, ensuring all candidates and hiring managers are kept well informed of project progress
  • Experience using cloud based ATS systems and use the systems to deliver insight and analytics to the business
  • In house experience is advantageous, however a passionate recruiter within the agency environment who demonstrates pro-activity to move in house would also be considered
