What can I earn as… a recruitment manager (public services) in Scotland?

What you need to succeed…

Ideally, you will have a degree and graduate CIPD membership, and at least three years’ experience at HR officer level. Familiarity with interviewing techniques and a detailed knowledge of employment law would be advantageous, plus experience of managing large-scale recruitment campaigns.

What will you do…

As the job title suggests, you will have overall responsibility for your company’s recruitment needs. In many cases, this won’t be limited to filling vacancies, but will also involve dealing with leavers, those transferring internally or relocating, or going on maternity leave. You may be responsible for the induction of new staff.

As with most HR roles at this level, you are likely to be asked to monitor, review and amend processes and procedures, in line with changes to company policy and employment law.

Prospects are…

Good – as long as you would like to remain working for a larger organisation.

The higher the number of employees, the greater the need for somebody to take overall responsibility for an organisation’s recruitment needs. In smaller organisations, however, that role is more likely to fall within the remit of an HR officer or manager.
