Technical Recruiter

We're on the lookout for a Tech Recruiter to join our in-house recruitment team on an initial fixed-term contract. The role will be based at our head office in Dunstable, with travel to our digital hub in Central London once a week, where you will focus on direct sourcing of contract tech resource for Whitbread. 

 

Whitbread are the proud owners of Premier Inn and some of the UK’s most loved restaurant brands, making us the UK's leading hospitality company in the FTSE 100. We’ve just sold Costa Coffee for £4billion, and our execs are committed to scaling Premier Inn further in the UK but also internationally in Germany as well. There has never been a more exciting time to Whitbread!

 

As a Tech Recruiter here at Whitbread, you’ll have ownership of all contract hiring across Tech and Digital. The successful person will be responsible for managing anywhere between 10-20 vacancies which in most cases needed to be hired yesterday, so you’ll need to be able to prioritise your workload effectively.

 

Whilst working in this role, you’ll be required to partner with our IT Leadership and Management team and keep them updated on a regular basis with progress of their vacancies, and if there’s any challenges.

 

As this role spans Tech and Digital, you’ll be recruiting across all disciplines, including Software Engineering, QA, Infrastructure, Service, Projects & Change, and Information Security.

 

What you’ll be doing:

  • Find, engage and partner with passive and active candidates, through the use of our ATS, Job Boards, LinkedIn and other platforms.
  • Screen CV’s and interview candidates to determine suitability for roles.
  • Post adverts on the Whitbread Careers page, jobs boards, and social media platforms.
  • Support hiring managers in recruitment logistics, i.e scheduling interviews and booking interview rooms.
  • Co-ordinate & facilitate Recruitment Events (where appropriate).
  • Regularly track pipeline activity to share with internal stakeholders. 

 

What we’d like you to have:

  • Experience of direct sourcing for Technology/Digital roles within either an agency or fast-paced in-house environment.
  • Experience of using LinkedIn Recruiter and other social channels to proactively target and attract top talent.
  • Technology and industry knowledge, with ability to understand relevant tech skills, and identify target companies.
  • A team player that thrives in an environment of responsibility and initiative.

Whitbread is an inclusive employer, strongly believing that everyone is unique and there should be no limits to ambition. We welcome your application whatever your background or situation. We are open to flexible working and, where possible, will try to support this.
