Talent Acquisition Lead - Corporate Function (12 month FTC)

My client, an internationally recognised retail business (based in central London) are looking for a Talent Acquisition Partner to join the team on a FTC (12 months). The role will take responsibility for a variety of hires in the business across all areas as the business moves to an agile way of resourcing. This is a great opportunity for a recruiter who has recently left another retail business! My client are interviewing this week with a view to start immediately. To learn more, get in touch!

Experience in recruiting either marketing teams, or IT/ Tech individuals as there are currently options for the right person to join an arm of the business to support their experience.

Alternatively, a strong background in corporate function recruiting within a large matrix business would be equally interesting!
