  • Motivated. In making a positive impact on our sourcing strategies and success and quickly finding your feet with new tasks.


You Will Benefit From:

  • Culture. Trust and empowerment, HR community engagement, meetups, parties and events.
  • Development. Extensive onboarding, ongoing on-the-job-training, opportunity to collaborate on TA-wide projects.
  • Career progression. A chance to develop into a Lead Sourcer or a Recruiter within our Talent Acquisition function or a profession of your choice within the entire People & Organisation unit.
