Inhouse Recruiter

Are you looking to move from agency to In-House? Ready to take what you have learnt internally elsewhere and bring that with you to AJ Bell? Due to growth we are now recruiting a further In House Recruiter/Internal Recruiter to deliver agreed recruitment and resourcing requirements across the business. 

We are an ambitious company with ambitious growth plans and this can only be achieved by bringing the right people into the business. The recruitment team has grown from a single recruiter to a team of seven in the past five years and we are looking to add to this. 

This will be a varied role, responsible for sourcing across a mix of business areas including tech, finance, and risk & compliance, as well as the opportunity to support assessment days and other recruitment events.

This role has significant influence over the quality of the staff coming into the business and the time to hire; it therefore, can contribute directly to team performance and engagement in all business areas. 

The role involves being able to quickly understand specific recruitment requirements, and determining the most effective routes to hire, which do not compromise on candidate quality. 

The external facing nature of this role will also mean that the In House Recruiter will play a significant part in promoting AJ Bell’s differentiators as an employer to ensure that we attract the best people to fill vacancies.

 What does the day to day look like?

  • Building strong relationships with key stakeholders, hiring managers and the recruitment and HR teams, gaining a clear understanding of role requirements and supporting hiring managers in their recruitment activities, enabling them to recruit high quality staff in the best possible lead time.  
  • Contributing to evolving direct sourcing plans, taking into account changing business needs.
  • Creating appealing job adverts and creative content to drive direct applicants. 
  • Sourcing candidates using a variety of recruitment channels, including database search; head hunting, job-board searching, networking, social and multimedia advertising.

  • Acting as brand ambassador, providing an excellent candidate experience from managing telephone pre-screening, interview prep and debrief, through to progress updates and offers.  Giving quality, personalised feedback to unsuccessful candidates. 
  • Keeping an ear to the ground on market trends and developments to support and influence hiring decisions.
  • Being a super user of our applicant tracking system

What we're looking for:

  • Proven background in a fast-paced permanent recruitment environment, either in-house or agency.
  • Understanding of relevant legislation which impacts on UK recruitment, including immigration and visa requirements.
