Talent Acquisition Director - Dudley

Talent Acquisition Director Jobs

The acquisition of employees with the right skill sets for a company’s needs should not be done on an ad-hoc basis. It’s a strategic task, and that requires a team overseen by a director at board level who can make informed plans and decisions based on corporate goals, forecasts and seasonal demands. This is the role of the talent acquisition director.

Talent acquisition directors may need to work across multiple businesses within a group, creating a talent pipeline that is key to satisfying the unique and diverse needs of each. That demands a very close working relationship with national, regional and site-level managers, as varied positions create a range of recruitment demands. Cultivating relationships with specialist recruiters, as well as internal managers is also an important part of the job as they will in many cases, be your eyes and ears on the ground and in the employment marketplace.

The skills required

A proven record of people management is a key asset for this job. The ideal candidate will be someone who has risen through the ranks of HR and talent acquisition and is looking for the next logical career step. Experience of managing businesses, branches, departments and budgets will also stand the applicant in good stead, as a deep appreciation of the way in which employees and managers interact within financial constraints is key to the role.

Because all sectors have differing demands when it comes to acquiring talent, it may be necessary for an applicant to have worked in the same sector as the role itself. Acquiring talent for hotels and hospitality is very different to acquiring it for the oil industry, for example. An ability to identify, predict and react to the differing needs of wide-ranging jurisdictions may also be required for multinational companies, where talent acquisition is not a local or national affair.

Talent Acquisition Director Jobs in Dudley

Dudley holds the distinction of being the second most populous town in the UK after Reading, and has a population larger than many UK cities. The town has applied for city status but has so far failed to be granted it. It’s probably fair to say that to the outside world it forms part of the Birmingham conurbation, nestling between the city proper, Wolverhampton and Stourbridge. The accents of two of its most famous children, Lenny Henry and Sam Allardyce, certainly attest to the Brummy link!

Historically, Dudley was a major player in the Industrial Revolution, and was home to a good deal of heavy industry like much of the Black Country – in fact Dudley was often called the Black Country’s capital. Evidence of this past remains in the shape of the extensive canal network, but the town does not have a great deal of industry any more. The population is served by plenty of big name shops, and the nearby Merry Hill Shopping Centre makes the area a good place to look for Talent Acquisition Director jobs.

The town has several trading and industrial estates, such as Belfont, Long Lane, Primrose Hill, Vernon and Two Woods, each of which presents opportunities in logistics.
