The role

We are undergoing a widespread transformation to improve our digital capability, and want data to be at its core. As such, we are adding significant resource to our data and analytics teams over the course of 2021 and beyond.

On this basis, we are looking for a specialist analytics recruiter to join the team.

You’ll be here to help us deliver a ‘best in class’ talent acquisition solution, cultivating in demand, hard-to-find skill sets sitting predominantly within data science and advanced analytics. 

What you’ll be doing

  • You’ll be hiring a lot of people. As such you’ll spend a lot of time using LinkedIn and other tools to headhunt, source, screen and engage active and passive talent 

  • Work to specific briefs to build talent pipelines for hard-to-find, in demand skillsets

  • Manage the candidate experience through the end-to-end recruitment cycle, from sourcing to post-offer candidate care 

  • Manage different priorities, often during periods of high workload volume and with tight deadlines

  • Work with internal teams on the creation of content for social media channels and Virgin Media careers site to encourage relevant candidate applications

  • Write and produce job advertisements to be shared on our careers site and social channels

  • Engage with third parties (e.g. training consultancies, recruitment agencies, social media partners) when necessary

  • Work with internal teams to process offer paperwork and ensure all compliance checks (e.g. right-to-work, proof of address) are completed in an expedient manner

What we’re looking for

  • Experience of end-to-end recruiting, from sourcing to post-offer care

  • Experience of technical sourcing in and around: data; data science; advanced analytics; machine learning and data engineering/modelling 

  • An individual who can demonstrate that they can build long-lasting, personable relationships and networks with professionals in these fields 

  • Experienced in working in a fast-paced, ever-changing environment

  • Demonstrable experience of successfully sourcing passive talent

  • Experience in building and engaging talent pipelines for critical, hard-to-find positions

Behaviours we’re looking for

  • Collaborative approach to solving complex business problems and taking the required ownership to reach a successful outcome

  • Proactive communication building confidence and trust 

  • Ability to prioritise deliverables based on commercial criticality

  • Learning oriented with a growth mind-set to adapt and proactively evolve our ever-changing environment

  • An ability to work through ambiguity, show resilience and ‘think on your feet’ when faced with challenging situations

Required experience

  • Experience in end-to-end candidate sourcing and recruiting

We’re a great place to work – and we offer impressive benefits too! You will get a generous holiday allowance, contributory pension, performance related bonus and, of course, discounts across Virgin Media products and Virgin brands!

We embody the principles of what it is like to be part of the Virgin family. We are a collaborative bunch, and like to be a place where ideas and new ways of working can be forged. 

Consideration will also be given to applications made for part-time or flexible working hours.
