The role

Capita partners with the British Army, one of Britain’s most respected employers and a Times Top 100 organisation, to attract and select their soldiers and officers.

Working in one of our vibrant offices, it’ll be up to you to provide a tailored candidate experience for Army candidates. It may be different to what you’re used to, where nurturing candidates and giving them professional guidance is just as important as meeting targets. Expertly engaging face-to-face, with a wide variety of people, you’ll strive to find the very best talent for this exceptional brand while guiding and inspiring them along the way. Supporting senior members of the team, using the latest social media tools and liaising with education providers to raise awareness of the incredible diversity of roles available within the Army, will all be part of your busy remit. Recruiting for soldiers means you’ll be dealing with a high-volume of candidates who will need your time, attention and support as they move through each phase of their application. You’ll learn from industry leaders, gathering insight and experience from your colleagues to help you forge a unique career in recruitment. It’s a challenging role with many rewards and the scope for development and career progression is second-to-none.

Key responsibilities

  • Support and nurture candidates through their individual recruitment journeys.
  • Lead and attend attraction events to raise awareness of the variety of roles available.
  • Manage relationships with a number of internal and external stakeholders.
  • Identify key market trends that will inform our recruitment strategy.

Essential skills, experience and behaviours

Coming from a recruitment background within agency, RPO or in-house, you’ll have a proven track record of excellent negotiation and influencing skills, a friendly approach and strong attention to detail, enabling you to create a bespoke service for each of our candidates. Your confident, proactive attitude means you’ll thrive in this professionally unique, target-driven environment. This is an opportunity like no other: together, we can find even more talented individuals providing them with a fantastic candidate experience and guiding them in their aspiration to join the British Army.

This is an important role with Europe’s largest RPO, working with considerable autonomy to deliver recruits for a vital organisation.
