The Role

We are looking for a Technical Recruitment Sourcer to join our growing People Team. You’ll need experience in sourcing for a range of technical roles, including software engineers, tech leads, engineering managers and other product-related positions.

This role has a high degree of responsibility and autonomy. You’ll work with the senior leadership team, to create an effective attraction strategy which you will execute. This strategy will lean heavily toward direct sourcing. Where appropriate, you will also manage and work with 3rd party suppliers, either for specific roles or projects.
