Recruitment Operations Manager - Senior Talent

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.

As a Recruitment Operations Manager focusing on senior talent (Army officers), you'll head up one of our recruiting regions, motivating and inspiring an ambitious team of recruiting specialists to deliver an exceptional candidate experience for the Army's future leaders. You'll oversee your team to ensure they meet targets whilst managing a portfolio of promising senior talent. Collaborating with colleagues, you’ll enable national coverage whilst developing your own regional recruitment strategy.  A confident and professional nature will be required as you engage with senior Army stakeholders and ambitious applicants who will need your full attention and dedication.  It's a challenging role where the rewards and opportunity to progress your already impressive career are second-to-none.

Key responsibilities

  • Lead and coach a team of recruiters across a large UK region.
  • Define individual targets for both candidate attraction and retention.
  • Inspire and incentivise recruiters across the region to achieve and excel their targets.
  • Ensure your teams are well trained, motivated and inspired to find the right people for the right roles within the Army.
  • Lead and attend attraction events to raise the awareness of the variety of roles available.
  • Identify and develop key stakeholder relationships and build strong relationships with educational providers to showcase careers within the Army.

Essential skills, experience and behaviours

Your extensive professional or executive search experience will enable you to effectively manage and inspire both internal and external stakeholders, while your positive, professional approach will allow you to overcome a range of challenges. A strong negotiator and influencer with experience liaising at senior management or board level, you'll also be confident leading initiatives in this professionally unique environment, while always keeping an eye on shifting candidate trends. The Army is an organisation like no other: this is an opportunity to make your mark on a brand where talented individuals with unique skills are everything.  

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