If successful, you will be working as part of our Contract & Temporary IT Recruitment team in a variety of roles with some of the most innovative and exciting companies in Belfast.

Candidate Sourcing - we work almost exclusively in challenging skills markets where talent is in very short supply. Our main differentiator as a firm is our ability to source great candidates that our competitors and clients cannot. Therefore, you will need to be extremely proactive and creative, using all available tools, in sourcing the best talent for our clients. Social media. Marketing and networking are a must for anyone wanting to become a talent magnet in this space.

Client Relationships - you will partner with your clients to understand their needs, identify their pain points and learn to spot the best talent to join their business

Great candidate management skills are necessary in a role like this, as you manage the candidate from initial engagement to beginning of the assignment

Person & Package

For this role we are open to talented people with or without previous commercial experience. Regardless of your background to date you must be extremely driven, have a strong desire to achieve success and a work ethic to back up your ambition.
