Job description / Role
To be successful in the role of the Recruitment Associate ( a 1 year fixed term contract), it is expected that you will be degree educated and possess a minimum of 2 years of recruitment and talent acquisition experience, with a preference for those within the professional services sector. You will be accustomed to a fast paced and heavily deadline driven environment and therefore, those who are self-motivated, hardworking and pro-active should apply. Exceptional communications skills in English are required and Arabic fluency is a distinct advantage.
The successful candidate will undertake many support functions to assist the Recruitment Manager and act as the main point of contact for candidates, interviewers and operational team members. You will develop strong relationships with all involved and will communicate effectively at all times. Part of the role will also ensure that a keen eye for detail is maintained, with up to date information and progress fully tracked on the internal CRM.
As a large recruitment strategy is in place for the next year, the role of the Recruitment Associate will also involve the scheduling of interviews both regionally and internationally and to ensure that all associated documents are available on the day. Additional support will also be given to the onboarding process for new recruits and interaction with the training teams and wider recruitment function to ensure all logistics are in place.
Please note that this role is initially for a fixed term contract of 1 year. However, due to the global reach of the organisation, a position in this company will be a gateway into the professional services sector for those wishing to progress.
