Recruitment Manager

Can you provide an excellent end-to-end recruitment process to find us the people we need to provide life-saving healthcare in humanitarian emergencies?

Role: Recruitment Manager

Hours: Full-time

Pay: £35,000 – £40,000 gross annual

Duration: Permanent contract

Location: UK-Med Office, Manchester, UK with hybrid working (approximately 30% on-site)

Humanitarian health needs are growing. We are seeking a skilled HR professional with the experience to help recruit, vet and mobilise and engage our staff and members. Our medical teams respond to disasters around the world and we work with local emergency teams to build their resilience to future threats. Our work has never been more vital, with disasters becoming more frequent, complex and severe.  Can you help build a world prepared to help?

As our new Recruitment Manager you will play a key role in ensuring UK-Med attracts and selects great people to join our teams.   You will make sure we have the right personnel in our core staff team (currently 50-60 people), in our Country Programmes, and in the UK-Med Register of 1000 medical and non-medical international responders. You will bring expertise in recruitment and selection, the ability to inspire, mentor and develop colleagues and a passion for working thoroughly at high pace.

Our ideal candidate will be passionate about both UK-Med’s humanitarian mission and about the challenge of recruiting the best people for every role.  You will be experienced and expert in recruitment and selection and a strong team-player willing to partner across the HR function and whole organisation to support managers.

You will be comfortable working at pace and thrive on achieving challenging objectives and meeting rapidly changing demands.  You will have a track record of improving systems and processes and a sound understanding recruitment best practice.  Experience working internationally, particularly in humanitarian emergency response, is an advantage but not essential.

We offer a competitive salary and benefits along with a friendly working environment and the opportunity to make a real difference through humanitarian work. UK-Med is a growing and developing organisation with a committed team of staff, volunteers and members. This role is a truly exciting opportunity to help develop our people services to meet the challenges and opportunities our growth present.
