What is a Sourcing specialist?

Sourcing Specialists are delivery-focused Recruiters. As with Trainee Consultants, through training, mentoring and coaching, our Trainee Sourcing Specialists develop knowledge and expertise within their niche market sector, as well as an understanding of the full recruitment life cycle.

You’ll then be assigned to provide a dedicated sourcing service to identified Key Accounts within STR Group Services division.

Your Role

Your role will be to establish talent pools of candidates from a variety of sources, including online databases, social media, advertising and marketing campaigns, networking, referrals and headhunting activities. You’ll then use your understanding of the vacancy requirements to identify and pre-screen suitable matches for your clients.

Once you’ve completed your shortlisting and submitted your candidates to you client, you’ll be responsible for managing the interview, offer and on-boarding process for both the client and the candidate. This will involve gathering and providing feedback, keeping all parties informed throughout the process and providing advice and guidance.

Successful placements

Once a successful candidate is identified, you’ll be responsible for delivering the offer, and making sure they are fully prepared to start their new role, earning commission on each placement made!

As you develop in your role, you’ll take on responsibility for client management and developing relationships with existing or new contacts within the key accounts assigned to you.

Recruitment is a dynamic, fast-paced and ever-changing world – remember you won’t just be doing the above for one client at one time, you’ll be managing multiple client relationships, recruitment processes, and sourcing projects – all of which will be at different stages of the recruitment cycle.
