  • Sourcing, screening and presenting suitably qualified CVs
  • Support, challenge and drive best practice at each stage of your recruitment process
  • Provide timely and accurate data through the ATS
  • Regularly updating all parties on the status of your allocated requisitions and project targets

  • Excellent internal stakeholder managements skills
