Job Description

Recruitment coordinator/ Trainee Recruitment Consultant Please note: we are not advertising this role on behalf of a client. This is a rare and exciting vacancy for a post within our own small recruitment team. Please read this advert in full before applying as if you do not tailor your skills and experiences to the advert it is unlikely you will be successful. We have a rare and exciting vacancy for a graduate recruitment coordinator to join our recruitment team in Manchester, a 5 minute walk from Manchester Piccadilly. What does The Education Network do? We recruit teachers, teaching assistants, and other school support staff and place them into a wide range of local schools in roles lasting from one day to one year as well as permanent posts. For this we need a strong team which can find great teachers and work convincingly with local schools to scout roles to put them in. Together our team needs to cover sales, resourcing, talent attraction, school engagement, HR, administration, payroll, accounting, IT and management - and with so much going on the role of Recruitment Coordinator is vital to making sure everything runs smoothly! What does a recruitment coordinator do? What doesn't a recruitment coordinator do! A typical day may include: 9:00am - Respond to emails and general queries which have come in overnight - you will need to be able to build great relationships with a wide range of people and to deal with problems patiently and swiftly. 10:00am - Meet with and interview a new teacher joining the agency - you will need to be personable, inquisitive, and be able to find out as much as information as possible for our consultants to use in 'selling' our candidates to schools. 11:00am - Process key recruitment checks for the new teacher and others you have met during the week - you will need an eye for detail and be able to work to strict standards, gaining an awareness of HR regulations and policies. 12:00pm - Visit a local university to attend a careers fair on behalf of the business, attracting new teachers to join us. You will need to be gregarious and convincing - and have a passion for what we do and what we offer! 2:00pm - Emergency! A school wants a geography teacher - assist the manager in calling round and finding the right candidate to fill the booking. You will need to be able to act quickly under pressure and change priorities at the last minute to meet the business's needs. 3:00pm - Meet with your manager to discuss progress on an exciting new initiative using your key strengths - you will need to be able to identify areas in which procedures could be improved, or see a gap for a great new idea, speak up about it, and take the lead on bringing it to fruition! 4:00pm - Turn the vacancy notes left for you by consultants into engaging and attractive job adverts - you will need to be able to write persuasively and engagingly and to identify the selling points of what you are advertising for. What opportunities for progression are there? The coordinator role is a key one. You will be covering a wide range of tasks, including HR, admin, sales, consultancy, payroll, resourcing, talent attraction, and account management. There is scope for development into more advanced roles in each of these areas according to your strengths, and you will gain broad experience of a busy business environment which will be invaluable in any future activity. This is the ideal role for someone wanting to become a Recruitment Consultant as the role will give you an overall and in-depth experience of the recruitment process. We hope that you will also discover unexpected strengths or a passion for an area you had never previously considered. We are looking for somebody who is keen to learn and take on board all that we offer. What skills and experience do I need? There is not one profile we look for. We are seeking somebody who is quick to learn and can balance a wide range of competing tasks and priorities. Although it may sound cliché, as a small team we are also looking for a team player. An interest in recruitment and/or education will be a significant benefit. An understanding of the key roles in a school and the different teaching qualifications will also be beneficial and if invited to interview we will expect you to read up on these. What benefits are there? A starting salary of £15,000-£20,000 is only the start
