Talent Acquisition Consultant - Edinburgh

Harvey Nash Scotland was setup in 2008 with just a couple of consultants in a small office in Edinburgh’s West End. In the last 10 years Rhona and the team have turned that tiny team of consultants into a team of 20+ thriving experts and has led Harvey Nash to huge successes. They have rapidly outgrown 3 offices and are now in their newly-designed suite in Waverley Gate at the East end of Princes Street (just above Waverley Station). They work with a number of Scotland’s top companies, which range across massive corporations, emerging tech start-ups and the public sector. The potential is limitless and we’re always adding to the list of people we work with.

Working for Harvey Nash offers challenges and rewards in equal measure. You will be working from our new offices where you’re provided with free tea, coffee, sweets and fruit (we try to be healthy!). We have discounted membership at our local gym – which happens to be next door to our office!

The team are welcoming, friendly and sociable and often have lunch round the kitchen table together and drinks on the roof-top terrace.

What will I be doing?

Working with our consultants you will be helping to resource candidates and mapping the client and candidate market for accounts where we have very established relationships, exclusivity and influence or volume requirements to ensure you have the best chance possible of filling positions.

  • Reporting: Sending weekly reports and updates to the teams
  • CV formatting: Assisting consultants by preparing CV’s in Word so that they are ready to send to our clients
  • Developing relationships internally and externally
  • Ad hoc projects: Provide administrative support to all areas of the business as required
  • Contractor queries: Assist contractors with timesheet and payroll queries

What we are looking for?

  • A candidate with a strong attention to detail and organisational skills
  • Experience with Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint
  • Good communication skills
  • Ability to work on own initiative and as part of a team
  • Ability to manage time and work to deadlines
  • Be educated to a National 5 level or equivalent in English

This exciting role would suit someone of graduate calibre, possibly with some commercial experience in customer services, administration or similar who demonstrates the motivation and ambition to succeed in a service-led, professional recruitment environment.

In return:

We offer a high energy, rewarding environment and this is the perfect time to join us as we continue on an extended period of growth. In addition to a competitive salary and commission structure, we offer a range of team incentives including Michelin star lunches, great team activity days and group wide incentive trips overseas.
