Recruitment & Selection Specialist Jobs

The main purpose of a Recruitment & Selection specialist job is to provide professional advice to line managers which can help adapt best practises in the recruitment and selection processes used by the company. It may also involve working directly with external agencies such as job centres and recruitment agencies.

Additional duties may include preparing job descriptions and person specifications; writing job advertisements and deciding how and where jobs will be advertised and designing or revising application forms, managing the redeployment of existing employees and, on occasion, assisting with the creation and implementation of redundancy programmes. This role will naturally involve intensive communication within the human resource department.

Recruitment specialists will also be involved in preparing recruitment material such as brochures and posters; developing creative recruitment solutions if the organisation is experiencing difficulties in attracting the appropriate level and quality of staff; screening application forms and short-listing applicants and devising, running and evaluating selection processes including interviews, psychometric tests, personality questionnaires and various group activities.

Recruitment & selection specialists keep up to date with current employment legislation and ensure that line managers are effectively briefed on any relevant changes.

Salaries can range from £20,000 to £40,000 depending on experience.

Pathway into Recruitment Search and Selection

Many organisations will require the applicant to have a Bachelors degree, preferrably with a Human Resource focus or related, however, it is possible that a recruitment consultant could work their way up to such positions.

It would also be useful to have accreditation from an official recruitment body such as the REC.
