This is where you come in! To do so we need to hire more life-changers (recruitment consultants) at all levels than ever before, and we would love somebody to join and become a core part of the HRS family.


HRS are an accredited Gold Standard Investors In People (IIP) consultancy who in the past 24 months become a multi-award winning recruitment consultancy winning "The Best Company To Work For" (IRP awards, Recruiter Awards and the Global Recruiters Awards). We are now going on a growth journey as part of a new 3 year business plan to make a bigger difference and change more lives than ever before.

HRS was set up by and is led by experienced recruitment leader Ricky Martin, alongside Lord Alan Sugar. The business formed late 2012 off the back of The Apprentice, where Ricky gained a successful investment from billionaire and his now business partner, Lord Sugar. What secured the investment was not the idea of creating just another recruitment company, but to set up a business which would change lives. This is why we hire great people and they are known as "Life-Changers"! And why we now would like a Talent Acquisiton Manager top help drive these forward for us.


Your duties as the Talent Acquisition Manager will be varied however the key duties and responsibilities are as follows:

In doing so you will ensure HRS remain the Best Company to Work for and our life-changers are continually supported and developed in their roles.
