About the job

Job description

The Government Recruitment Service (GRS) delivers and supports a diverse range of recruitment and talent management services across the Civil Service. As a centralised expert service, we gain the advantage of being at the centre of supporting departments future goals, whilst remaining independent of their daily activities.

We support departments, functions and professions across Whitehall in recruiting for the skills that they need. Our work varies enormously as we flex between dealing with campaigns where we are searching for professionals in scarce or hard to recruit markets, through to campaigns that attract large volumes of applicants, and everything in-between.

Due to continued growth Government Recruitment Service is seeking enthusiastic and organised individuals to join our evolving team, and help contribute to our aim of delivering a world class recruitment and selection service. We have two roles split across two of our sites.

Recruitment Campaign Manager - London and Newcastle:

As a Recruitment Campaign Manager, you will sit at the heart of Government and have direct influence on the ability of Government Departments and Professions to hire the right talent that they need to be able to deliver for the citizen. You will work with a team of experienced recruitment professionals, in a fast-paced and supportive operational environment, where you can quickly and regularly see the impact you are having on the Civil Service.

Pre-employment checks Campaign Manager - Newcastle only:

As a Campaign Manager on pre-employment checks (PEC), you will be responsible for the effective operational delivery of resourcing requirements to customers’ from across Government. You will lead and manage a resourcing team of EO Team Leaders and AO Checkers who are responsible for managing the internal and external checks end-to-end process.

If you feel that you're up to the challenge and would like to find out more information on these roles, please see the attached candidate pack for more details.

Candidates are advised that this recruitment campaign by Government Recruitment Service (GRS) is a talent pooling approach, rather than a campaign to fill current, known vacancies. Whilst GRS fully expects to recruit for more than two posts, we cannot guarantee at this stage the exact number of appointments to be made, or when they will be confirmed.


We'll assess you against these behaviours during the selection process:

  • Seeing the Big Picture
  • Developing Self and Others
  • Managing a Quality Service
  • Communicating and Influencing
