The starting salary for this role is £41,127 per annum, working 36 hours per week. Whilst our offices are open for you to use as you need to, we usually meet once a month as a team so, outside of any urgent face-to-face meetings, we’re happy for you to work where you’re happiest working.
The predecessor of the role is writing this (hello!) and, whilst she may be completely biased, she can confidently tell you this is a job that will bring you so much satisfaction and a smile to your face every day (okay, most days!). Supported by a very committed, engaged, and friendly team, the role requires a compassionate and outcome focussed leader who likes to get stuck in to the nitty gritty of recruitment.
Surrey County Council’s workforce is made up of over 11,000 staff spanning a wide variety of roles within sectors such as from hospitality, social care, environment and transport, executive recruitment, and everything in between. Supporting over 800 hiring managers, we process on average over 2000 adverts each year.
Through day-to-day operational management of our ATS, job board partnerships and advertising budget you’ll be ensuring our advertising is of high quality, effective, and attractive to the market we’re reaching.
A curious thinker at heart, you’ll use both internal insights and market-led data to inform your decision making, providing support to the attraction team with ongoing campaigns and helping to lead our digital and social media efforts in promoting us as an employer of choice.
The wonderful attraction team is made up of the following:
- x3 Recruitment Attraction Consultants
- x3 Recruitment Attraction Leads
- x1 Recruitment Data Lead
- x1 Recruitment Marketing Lead
- x1 Recruitment Marketing Assistant
- x1 Apprentice
This role would directly manage these positions, would be supported by the Assistant Head of Resourcing, and would also link in with the wider recruitment team.
I won’t beat around the bush- we’re really proud of the culture we have built and maintained within the team. Our values and support for one another is intrinsic to everything we do and will be a key priority within the assessment for this post. We care hugely about wellbeing, allowing time for a good giggle and developing our team to be the best they can be. The management team is also extremely supportive so you’ll never be alone if you need advice or guidance.
We’re open to transferable skills and we recognise that recruitment isn’t about tick boxes. Whether you’re a passionate recruiter looking for a meaningful career, a keen marketer who wants to expand their recruitment knowledge or you find yourself somewhere in between, we’d love to hear from you. We love developing a skills gap so don’t be put off if you don’t feel you hit every single marker below- we’re looking for commitment not perfection.

- An experienced leader who has supported, developed, and empowered a team
- Evidence of thorough recruitment or marketing experience or qualifications
- Experience of using data to build narratives and inform decision making
