We are currently looking for a Recruitment Coordinator to join our in-house recruitment team in Bristol. Now, we might be slightly biased, but we think we are a great team to be part of……..although that might have something to do with our fondness for tea and biscuits!
It's no secret that we're an ambitious firm and our vision and culture truly reflect that. At the heart of this is an outstanding client experience, something that Womble Bond Dickinson prides itself on, and it's something that we've become so well known for. We believe it's what will support the growth of our business, allow us to do rewarding and profitable work and create a sustainable business for our people. But we can't uphold that reputation and grow our business without continuing to recruit some of the very best talent in the legal industry.
And that's where our team comes in. We've had some great successes in the past couple of years; attracting outstanding talent to the business, gaining recognition for our apprenticeship programme and recruiting and developing the future leaders of our business through our graduate scheme. But there's plenty more for us to do if we're going to help our business achieve its vision and we need your help in doing that.
So what will you be doing?
We're looking for someone who shares in our passion for outstanding candidate experience and client service delivery. We'll be looking to you to keep us all in check and ensure that our candidates and new joiners have a seamless experience. You'll be doing this in a number of ways including:
- Co-ordinating the new joiner induction process liaising with candidates and hiring teams.
- Taking responsibility for the pre-employment checking process which includes referencing, enhanced checks through an external provider, regulatory and legal right to work checks.
- Keeping in touch with candidates between offer and joining to ensure they are kept up to date with progress of their pre-employment screening and induction arrangements.
- Supporting a team of busy recruiters in co-ordinating interviews and assessments.
But it's not all about us, to be honest we're more interested in you. We're open minded about your background but it's likely that you'll have gained some administrative experience within a recruitment or HR team, or within a recruitment consultancy. We work in a very busy and fast paced environment so some knowledge of recruitment or HR would be helpful. Beyond that, it's essential that you're highly organised and efficient, have a passion for delivering exceptional candidate experience and are a strong team player. Given that much of your role will be spent liaising with candidates and hiring teams, an ability to build relationships and communicate effectively is also essential. We're a friendly and supportive team and it's really important to us that you share in that.
We work with some fantastic people, we enjoy what we do and we have a bit of fun along the way. But importantly, we're made to feel that we're really contributing to the success of this business.
