Recruitment Officer - FTA

These posts are being offered on a 12 month Fixed Term Appointment (FTA) to complete a finite piece of work.

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.

Hosted by the Cabinet Office; 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.

We are looking for enthusiastic people who have strong communication and stakeholder engagement skills to join our organisation in supporting the recruitment process and to conduct pre-employment checks for candidates. In our Department, good customer service skills are essential and being a team player is a must as this is the key to our success. Working with government departments in a fast paced environment, priorities are ever changing so you must have the ability to work at pace and have resilience to meet competing demands. You will need to be open to change and focused on helping us to develop a professional service.

To be successful in this role you will:

• Have a strong customer service ethos;
• Be effective in building and maintaining relationships with colleagues and customers;
• Be able to manage and prioritise your workload to meet changing demands and delivery targets;
• Show resilience and have the ability to thrive in a fast paced environment;
• Have strong communication skills (both oral and written);
• Have a strong desire to constantly look for better ways of doing things;
• Have strong IT skills;
• Have a flexible approach and ability to adapt to an evolving industry.

If you are passionate about customer service and delivering a quality service then we would love to hear from you.
