Job Description: Resourcing Associate
Goodman Masson's Team of the Year are recruiting. After a period of brilliant growth, the Accounting and Internal Audit for Financial Services division are now looking for a key strategic hire. As Resourcing Associate, you will act as the foundation of the team, overseeing candidate acquisition, marketing and the management of the division's network database.
We are not looking for someone to do a typical 'Associate Consultant' role. We want someone who is passionate about resourcing and wants to be an expert in this space. As you establish yourself, you will be given freedom to innovate how we attract the best people in the market, and won't be burdened by the same focus on deals and monthly revenue that a usual Consultant would. Your task will be to create and manage a market-leading candidate network in Accounting and Internal Audit roles for the financial services market.
Resourcing and Database Management
- Managing candidate mapping for different market verticals, utilising a range of sources and methods
- Owning and expanding live candidate groups on the system, making them efficient and of high quality
- Making contact with legacy contacts and 're-living' them for new roles, or turning them into prospective clients
- Working on pitches with Consultants for more senior roles; visiting and presenting to clients where appropriate
- Actively networking within the market; meeting and interviewing potential candidates in and out of the office
- Managing searches on relevant job boards
- Analysing and reviewing best practice and continuously driving process improvement and change
- Managing candidate and client events and the team's outreach strategy

- Overseeing performance of different active and passive candidate and client acquisition strategies and making recommendations for change
The range of responsibilities listed above is not exhaustive. We hope that you can find new and creative ways to attract the right people.
If you are looking for a challenging and rewarding opportunity, but without the pressure of a deal-cycle and revenue targets, this role is for you. You will be rewarded with a market-leading range of benefits and we can also offer flexible working arrangements (i.e. working from home) for the right person.
