Recruitment & Selection Specialist Jobs

Recruitment & selection specialist jobs work with line managers within their own organisation but also with external agencies such as job centres and recruitment agencies.

In addition to recruitment, Recruitment & selection specialist jobs may manage the redeployment of existing employees and, on occasions, assist with the implementation of redundancy programmes.

Recruitment & selection specialist jobs duties can include providing professional support and advice on recruitment to line and departmental managers; advising managers on best practice recruitment and selection; preparing job descriptions and person specifications; writing job advertisements and deciding how and where jobs will be advertised and designing or revising application forms, including developing online processes.

Recruitment & selection specialist jobs will also be involved in preparing other recruitment material depending on the type of organisation, for example, brochures and further particulars; 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 specialist jobs keep up to date with current employment legislation and ensuring that line managers are effectively briefed on any relevant changes are an important aspect to this job.  Recruitment & selection specialist jobs can also expect to be running selection centres for graduate recruitment and more senior vacancies; training staff in interviewing techniques and on the role of the assessor at a selection centre; developing plans to relocate staff to new departments and jobs due to restructuring within an organization and assisting in the implementation of redundancy programmes, which may include the development of early retirement packages and voluntary redundancy schemes.
