The Company

A large and well known local organisation that continues to expand globally, mostly through M&A activity. Now a leader in their sector, the business offers a diverse portfolio of businesses and long term growth strategy.

The Role

  • Strategic resource planning
  • Reducing cost and time hire
  • Internal hiring process and global mobility strategy
  • Developing and managing a robust PSL across the organisation
  • Developing social media strategy for recruitment, including the use of LinkedIn
  • Up-skilling recruitment team globally
  • Implementation of a new global ERP system
  • Change management of culture & approach to hiring
