​Exciting news! We're expanding our team and looking for enthusiastic and outgoing Candidate Managers to join us. No matter your level of experience, we want to hear from you - it's all about attitude! 🤩

If you have previous IT experience in roles such as Service Desk, Service Delivery Project Support, or sales, we'd love to chat. Understanding IT and the different roles within it is a plus, but we'll help you get up to speed.

As a Candidate Manager, you'll play a crucial role in finding the right person for the right role. Sometimes you'll be a sympathetic ear, and other times you'll need to use your BS detector 🕵️‍♂️ 

Think of it like the memory game you played as a kid or being a matchmaker for careers. If you enjoy making connections and finding that perfect fit, this is the job for you. Let's talk!

The role involves:

  • Screening candidate applications via phone  📱

  • Conducting face-to-face or video interviews 🤓

  • Updating and maintaining Candidate database.

  • Conduct and Transcribe references ✔️

  • Perform internal database Candidate searches 

  • Carry out LinkedIn Candidate searches

  • Writing and posting adverts 🌟

  • Managing the candidate in the end-to-end process 

  • last but not least - celebrating all the wins and drinking champagne 🥂

Experience and skills you're going to bring:

  • At least a Bachelor’s Degree in a relevant field 

  • At least three years' of professional experience in a related field

  • Excellent communication skills - you are confident writing emails, formal documents, and are adept at note taking with a reasonable typing speed

  • Vibrant phone manner, able to speak clearly and use appropriate language in a professional environment

  • Teamwork ability -

    this is very important as we need to communicate quickly and efficiently on a range of topics to facilitate our recruitment process

  • A sense of humour and the ability to have fun, is a must!

  • Ability to win “Cards against Humanity” 😉

Recruitment is not easy, but it can be really rewarding.   On top of the salary, Spotify, coffees, a fridge full of sugary energy and soft drinks (you'd not believe how much Coke Zero gets consumed in a week!), late-start Fridays,  there’s a generous uncapped commission component for every successful candidate you find that we help into a new position. 

placeMe IT is  focused on quality IT recruitment in Wellington and Christchurch. We're dedicated, and our relationships are our priority. We pride ourselves in being honest throughout the recruitment process, making sure we connect the right person with the right role and organisation.

If this sounds interesting to you, there’s a ton more we can talk about. If you’re still reading this then click apply and we’ll come back to you within 24 hours on where to from here.
