Talent Acquisition Manager - Newcastle upon Tyne

Talent Acquisition Manager Jobs

The word talent is used in recruitment for a reason. It’s not difficult to fill vacancies with employees, but choosing those with the specific qualities required is an art. Most companies go through a phase in their growth when they have high staff turnover because they can’t quite find the right people or because the recruitment process overlooks how good a match the candidate and the company are. It’s bad news for businesses, as they have to go through training and handover multiple times, and teams can be disrupted.

Talent acquisition managers are there to ensure that vacancies that open up within a company are filled by candidates who fit like jigsaw pieces into the role. The secret to successful placement is building a talent pipeline that flows smoothly and takes into consideration the company’s strategic plans. By appointing employees based on a methodical and considered process, the talent acquisition manager can secure employees who match the requirements and culture within the business, saving the company recruitment expenses and providing rewarding careers to enthusiastic people.

The skills required

A background in recruitment is a clear advantage for the role. Companies taking the step of creating or maintaining a dedicated talent acquisition manager will not be interested in recruitment experience that does not consider the long-term picture within the company. They want a manager who has the company’s strategic plans in mind when seeking to fill vacancies. To that end, if you can demonstrate the lengths you have gone to to ensure a company’s staffing is optimal, and provide evidence of successful placements and minimal employee churn, you could make a great talent acquisition manager.

Because all sectors are different, it’s possible that experience in the specific sector that the company operates in will be a key requirement of the role. A deep understanding of the sector and how it recruits, plus some great ideas about securing talent in the company could help a person with only junior or HR team management experience to land the job.

Talent Acquisition Manager Jobs in Newcastle upon Tyne

Newcastle upon Tyne has long been an important location in Britain. During Roman times, a fort called Pons Aelius was erected and served as the eastern end of Hadrian's Wall, while the Duke of Normandy built a castle here in 1080.

In the Middle Ages, Newcastle was a fortress on the northern border during the wars against Scotland. By the 16th century, the area had become known for its coal production. The city enjoyed a monopoly on shipping the fuel and thus created a rivalry with other nearby towns like Tyneside and Sunderland.

Printing, glassworks and shipbuilding were a big part of the city's economy as the Industrial Revolution took hold. Then, 19th century innovations such as safety lamps, improved milling techniques, electricity generation and light bulbs paved the way for the city's prosperity.

Of course, you can't forget one of Newcastle's most beloved products: Newcastle Brown Ale. Also known as Newkie Broon, this drink first went into production in 1928 and has been a favourite beverage ever since. Production, however, has been moved to North Yorkshire.

Today, the Tyneside conurbation is among the 10 most populous in the UK, making it a good choice for those seeking new Talent Acquisition Manager vacancies.

Heavy industry has declined over the last 50 years, to be replaced mainly with retail and the service sector. Just some of the many companies that are headquartered or have regional offices in the city include Greggs the baker, the Go-Ahead Group, Northern Rock, Proctor & Gamble UK and Sage, an enterprise software company.
