Due to a maternity leave in the team, an exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced Recruitment Lead to manage a highly engaged recruitment function focusing on the attraction of diverse talent across Europe, Middle East & Africa, providing partnership and leadership to our onsite RPO and in-house Graduate Recruitment team.

Reporting to the Regional Head of HR, you will partner with various stakeholders to evolve our talent attraction and hiring approach. You’ll also have a reporting line to the Global Head of Talent and Acquisition. This is an incredibly varied and rewarding role where you will build on existing relationships internally with Senior Business Leaders and HR but also drive external relationships with recruitment vendors and sourcing channels. You will be instrumental in our ability to continue to attract the best talent.

The Recruitment Lead is responsible for the operational aspects of running the function, for example responding to candidate and hiring manager feedback, managing service levels and dealing with issues relating to complex hires and executive searches. Your key vendor relationship will be with our Global RPO provider.  You’ll also be responsible for a number of projects in 2019, including the rollout of a new applicant tracking system, renewal of our preferred supplier list, execution of a new recruitment marketing strategy, expansion across several European office locations and a review of our resourcing model. You will also be involved in formulating Macquarie’s response to IR35 legislation in 2020.

Stakeholder management and relationship building are key to this role, as is the management of multiple priorities so you’ll need to have strong organisational and time management skills.  Proven experience leading large teams in a fast-paced environment would also help you succeed as well as the ability to manage projects across other areas of talent management and leadership development.
