Job Description

Recruitment Officer
College location: East Surrey College (Redhill) and John Ruskin College (Croydon)
Salary: Circa £24,000 (Subject to qualifications, skills and experience)
Hours: Full time (37 hours/week) starting in January 2021
We are currently seeking to appoint a self-motivated and enthusiastic Recruitment Officer to join our professional and dedicated Human Resources department.
In this rewarding role you will work closely with Colleagues in the Recruitment Team, HR Management & HR Business Partners as well as Line Managers to ensure that a speedy, thorough, and cost effective recruitment service is provided across the College Group.
You will be responsible for recruitment activity within allocated job categories, across both East Surrey College and John Ruskin College, therefore you must have suitable transport to access both locations (ideally a driving license and access to a car). You will take ownership and facilitate the whole recruitment process from advertising to offer, including document drafting, advertising, shortlisting & pre-screening of candidates, arranging interviews and facilitating offers. You will be sourcing candidates for a mixture of permanent, zero-hour, temporary, self-employed & voluntary positions.
In order to attract high quality candidates, innovative resourcing solutions will be required and it is essential that the jobholder utilises a wide variety of tools (eg job boards, social media, CV searching) as well as also building strong relationships with external suppliers and internal employees at all levels. As Further Education is a very busy, fast-paced and competitive sector, you will need to be an incredibly organised, flexible and proactive team player and have the ability to work both autonomously and also under close guidance.
The successful candidate must have:
* Proven experience in a Recruitment role with similar responsibilities, including resourcing and recruiting candidates to a range of roles
* Excellent verbal and written communication, time management and organisational skills
* Qualified to A Level standard, with Maths and English at Grade C (or Level 2 equivalent)
* Experience of using a Recruitment Information Database and reporting from this
* Experience of working successfully in a fast paced office environment
* Education experience would be advantageous
* Access to own transport for work purposes
Please note: Following current Government COVID-19 guidance the majority of our staff are working from College campus, but staff in some specific roles/departments may be required to work remotely at times. It is therefore highly desirable that candidates have experience of working from home and utilising video conferencing packages (e.g. Microsoft Teams or Zoom) in order to successfully carry out their role, or it is essential that they can demonstrate the capability to adapt to this and pick up the required Technological knowledge very quickly.
If this sounds like you and you will enjoy working in a forward thinking, friendly, fast paced, changing environment with state of the art facilities, we would love to hear from you. In return, we offer a competitive salary, as well as staff benefits such a choice of two excellent pension schemes, life assurance, free onsite parking and access to our fully equipped gym along with discounted in house Spa and Salon treatments.
Closing Date: Monday 30 November 2020*
(*Applications will however be shortlisted on a rolling basis and we reserve the right to interview and appoint before this closing date. We therefore encourage you to apply at the earliest opportunity to avoid disappointment)
PLEASE NOTE: As much as we would love to respond to all applicants, due to the sheer volume of applications we receive we are unable to respond to all unsuccessful candidates. If you have not heard from us within 14 days of sending your CV, unfortunately you have not been selected for the position.
Orbital South Colleges Group are committed to Equal Opportunities, encouraging applications from all sectors of the community to reflect our diverse student population.
