“A successful person finds the right place for themselves, but a successful leader finds the right place for others…”

Is this a quote that rings true with you? If your answer is yes, then please read on…

Stafffinders are excited to be recruiting for a Head of Recruitment Operations, to lead and build a motivated and ambitious team in Edinburgh city centre. Our Edinburgh office has just moved to a larger (and decidedly swisher) townhouse in the city centre EH1 district and we want a new Manager that will get things going with a bang.

Whether your background is in Commercial, Industrial, Hospitality or another recruitment sector, you could be just what we are looking for. The main priority for us is that you are driven, self-motivated, can demonstrate a successful track record in recruitment and thrive on developing others.

What you get at Stafffinders

Everyone wants to know the benefits to a new job, so let’s get that one out the way first: -

  • Highly competitive salary,
  • Bonus schemes – both individual and team,
  • Potential for flexible working hours,
  • Time off if you work extra hours,
  • Flexible holidays – buy and sell
  • Cycle to Work and IT/Tech scheme discounts
  • Office Car Parking Space
  • Laptop
  • Length of service benefits such as extra days’ holiday and private healthcare.

Who are Stafffinders

As an experienced recruiter, we’re pretty sure you’ve heard of us before… but if not, here’s a short summary. Stafffinders are Scotland’s longest-running family-led business, very much at the forefront of temporary and permanent Scottish recruitment for 50 years. Our values and ethics are in line with our family background, a trait we continue to carry throughout all business operations.

With offices in the West and East Coast, we cover the whole of Scotland including the Highlands and Islands, focusing on Hospitality, Office Support, IT and Industrial recruitment to name a few. We also work closely with both community and charity organisations, raising awareness and funds for charities such as MND Scotland and RAMH. 

What Stafffinders wants from you

To succeed as our Head of Recruitment Operations for Edinburgh, you will need to be determined, enthusiastic and self-driven. Attitude is everything within the job, as you will be required to proactively drive business development through all divisions, in a highly competitive market.  We need a strong leader, who loves to build, coach and mentor a team and then see them succeed, develop and fulfil their potential. The personal touch is vital, so if you want to be figuratively tied to a desk and hide behind emails, perhaps give it a miss.

As for experience, we are not going to put an exact timescale on it, but you must be able to demonstrate a clear, successful track record in a senior or managerial recruitment role, whilst still maintaining the same desire and motivation to succeed.

This role could be ideal for a Principal Consultant or Divisional Manager, looking to take the next leap forward in their career.

Finally, although the role specifically covers Edinburgh and the east coast, you will also definitely get the chance to have your good ideas heard and implemented across the entire company.

So, does this sound like your ideal role?

Assuming the answer is yes, then please forward us an up-to-date copy of your amazing CV.

If you wish to discuss this role in more detail, please call 0141-887-1155 and ask for John Gaughan.
