About the role


Making a difference to the candidates experience and supporting our managers throughout the whole recruitment process is what being an Inhouse Recruitment Specialist here at Lookers is all about. Do you want to be part of a great team who are making a real difference to the success of our business and represent brands like Volkswagen, Mercedes, Audi and Jaguar Land Rover to candidates?

Maybe you're looking to move from a fast paced, agency role or would like to try a new industry continuing within Inhouse recruitment and are just looking for a new challenge? Either way you'll need to have strong recruitment experience, be full of energy and have an upbeat, positive approach to fit in with this team. The position will be offered on a 12 months Fixed Term Contract to cover maternity leave, with a view to extension.

The role of Inhouse Recruitment Specialist offers a real opportunity to positively impact the recruitment process and continue to build our reputation as a Top Employer in the UK. Our Inhouse recruitment team have been in place fully for nearly 12 months now and we're making amazing progress. You'll advertise, screen, source, book interviews, offer jobs and respectfully decline candidates at times too. We want every candidate irrespective of being successful or not to have a professional experience from the moment they apply.

You'll be based in our beautiful Glasgow Audi dealership in Braehead where you will fully support your division to directly recruit a variety of vacancies like Showroom Host, Sales Executive, Technicians or Managers across the UK. You'll need to be super organised, enjoy some admin and process and be able to spot where we could make improvements. The ability to develop effective relationships, mainly remotely, is also essential to this role, building trusted relationships with our managers will be the key to your success.

What else is in it for you? Well apart from going home every day with the satisfaction of knowing you are making a difference you'll also benefit from learning loads and working in a busy role where your days will fly past. Our team are so welcoming. We work hard, have fun and are trusted to get the job done so there is some flexibility in how we work too. Other benefits include, holiday entitlement of 23 days that increases quickly with your length of service and eligibility to join one of our car schemes. So what are you waiting for?
