Interim Talent Manager Consumer Brands

Job description

London | 11-50 employees

A bit about us…

Create + Adapt are your first subscription based talent acquisition and employer brand partner. With a curiosity to break things, we're a tribe of doers determined to reinvent recruitment. Together, we help transformational brands scale sustainably through building a culture-first approach to recruitment.

Our team has experienced the world of sales-driven recruitment and have always begged the question - there’s got to be another way? We wanted to make partners out of clients and friends out of our candidates. We couldn’t find one, so we built it. Now we’re in a world we love and we’re here to stay. We’re not working in recruitment; we’re working on it. Our model provides scaling businesses, like ourselves, with the unique support they need to develop their rapidly growing team. Think of us as the Spotify for hiring; you can start, pause or stop at any time.

About the role...

With six new customers joining our growing community in June, we're on the hunt for a Talent Leader to own and manage a large scale project for a well known consumer brand. This role can be completed on a part-time or full time basis. You'll play a pivotal role in driving value to their leadership team and overall effectiveness of the lifecycle of the project. A people magnet, problem solver and data nut, you’ll enjoy a varied and challenging workload where no one day is the same.


Key responsibilities:

  • You will be responsible for overseeing a portfolio of leadership hires, implementation of projects and complex problem solving. 
  • You’ll be the go to expert on all things Talent Management and help influence internal and external stakeholders. 
  • A confident navigator of all things talent, you’ll know a thing or two about Employer Branding, Talent Management, effective hiring and leadership. 
  • You’ll help develop the overall Canda centre of expertise, helping our community of talent partners and community resourcers to be the best they can be.  
  • Above all you’ll be passionate about customer service and true partnership with your customers whilst spending plenty of time on-site with them too.

A bit about you...

You’ll love all things people, you’ll know what it takes to get things done in a busy recruitment role. You'll be a strong communicator who is comfortable challenging and passionate about customer service and integrity. You'll need to be happy working autonomously and you'll like to take ownership of your work (this job is sometimes remote so you need to be self-motivated!). Ideally, you'll be experienced in developing a campaign for hiring a variety of roles (sales, tech, marketing), driving commercial business decisions through the use of metrics and a real grafter who wants to grow and progress with us. A sense of humour is essential, we don’t compromise on this.


What’s in it for you…

  • An opportunity to work with some of the most transformational brands in the market.
  • Autonomous and flexible work style - be your own leader.
  • Weekly Team Jams where we #createhustleadapt.
  • Frequent socials including monthly pub quiz, team sports days (join our netball team!), drinks, dinners, and charity projects.
  • Regular knowledge-sharing sessions.
  • All of the latest tools you need to get the job done.
  • A culture of learning: we’re growing pretty darn fast and give you the chance to shape your role as we do.
  • Pension plan with a 4% employer contribution.
  • 30 days’ holiday a year (plus UK public holidays), and we encourage you to use them all up!
