Recruitment Specialist | Oman
About the Business:
Al-Futtaim's centralised recruitment team is a special place to work and, we think, a unique in-house recruitment team in the Middle East. We take pride in managing our own sourcing without agencies, we measure everything we do, we use the LEAN recruitment process to prevent waste and we carry a huge workload which we share and manage. We are highly systems and process driven and rely heavily on initiative, consistency, intelligence, discipline and good technology to save money, time and effort. Our team comes from Morocco, the UK, Uzbekistan, New Zealand, India, the Philippines, Canada, the UAE and Australia and we speak Arabic, English, Russian, French, Hindi, Malayalam, Telug, Tagalog, Ajami, Tamil, Farsi, and Turkish. In our first year of operations, 11 of us recruited 2,049 people and we won the Middle East HR Summit Award for the best HR Initiative in the Region. In 2011 we recruited a total of 3290 people and have an even busier 2012 planned
This is a team of dedicated hands-on, professional recruiters and is not for sales experts, the faint-hearted or those looking for an entry point into the HR profession.
About the Job:
We are looking to recruit an experienced Recruitment Specialist to join our team in Oman. You will be responsible for the recruitment of all vacancies in Oman for the local businesses within the Al Futtaim group of Companies. You will be expected to work independantly but with complete support from your Dubai based collegues.
Working alongside the line mangers and HR professionals of your business, your role will be to:
- Take accurate details of current vacancies
- Design and implement a recruitment strategy
- Write job adverts
- Source CV's using sniperhire
- Screen candidates
- Arrange interviews
- Conduct testing
- Interview potential employees
- Offer recruitment and salary advice
- Negotiate salaries
- Write offer letters
- Arrange documents for visa processing
You will take accountability for your assignments through thought leadership, detailed metrics, sound relationships and unswerving results focus. You will use our systems, processes and technology to their best effect, make suggestions for continuous improvement and will assist other team members when they have higher priorities than yours.
To be seriously considered suitable for this role, you must have recruitment experience either from an agency or an in-house team. We are not looking for someone who has worked in a HR role with recruitment as one of their many duties looking to use this as an entry point into an Al Futtaim HR role.
You must be passionate about recruitment as a profession and want to be part of the team long term. You must be a listener and note-taker, analytical (in thought and practice), a committed team member and a hands-on worker who lives for getting quality results. We need someone who can set aside process habits and quickly orientate themselves to what we do and how we do it.
We'll be delighted if you have any exposure to or understanding of how LEAN recruitment works, but if you don't we'll gladly show you. You will need first class skills with the Microsoft Office suite of products and you absolutely must have used at least one e-recruitment platform as a recruiter.
We don't care where you live or what nationality you are but you simply must like recruitment!
