Recruitment Placement scheme - 2021/2022

Fixed Term Contract (12 Months) - Uppingham

What you’ll do

We are looking for someone truly interested in Recruitment to join us for their Year in Industry as part of their degree.

You’ll be working as part of the wider HR and Recruitment team, where you’ll have several responsibilities designed to increase and deepen your knowledge and experience in this area. As we’re a SME, you’ll be exposed to a whole spectrum of Recruitment situations. You’ll be involved in the Recruitment process from job creation through to offer, and a range of wider Recruitment activities.

These will include:

  • General Recruitment administration tasks including maintaining candidate data
  • Managing the team’s shared mailbox, responding to enquiries and/or acting as appropriate
  • Supporting on key Recruitment activities including creating job adverts, posting roles, sifting and screening candidates and interview co-ordination
  • Working on Recruitment projects such as designing and creating content for our careers site and social media, reviewing our current processes and suggesting improvements and data analysis
  • Spending time with our Finance team to increase your general commercial awareness
  • Working closely with the HR team to support your knowledge and understanding of the employee life cycle and how Recruitment fits into that process

This is an excellent opportunity to work alongside some incredibly passionate HR and Recruitment professionals, who are committed to making MMT Digital the best place to work possible. Here at MMT Digital we are not as corporate as some companies, we know that people thrive in a fun and vibrant working environment – so that’s just what we’ve created.

What you’ll bring

In order to flourish in this role, you’ll need the following:

  • To be a current University student on a course that enables you to take an Industrial Placement Year (unfortunately if you have already graduated, or will graduate in 2021, you are not eligible for this role)
  • Working towards a degree in Business Management, Economics, HR, Psychology or a similar field, with a clear passion and interest in Recruitment
  • To be a strong team player but also able to work on your own initiative
  • Excellent interpersonal skills, with the emotional intelligence to work with a wide range of people
  • The ability to find solutions to overcome problems
  • To be highly organised with an excellent eye for detail
  • Clear communication skills – both in writing and verbally

It would also be great (but not essential) if you have:

  • Completed modules in your degree that have given you a base level of knowledge in HR and/or Recruitment
  • Some hands-on experience in an administration role

What motivates us

Everything we do is driven by our 3 core Values – Fairness, Commercialism and Quality.

These values influence our ways of working, how we treat each other, and how we engage with our clients. They also guide and shape our behaviours. This means we know what we stand for and we recognise the behaviours that we don’t tolerate - including discrimination, bullying and intimidation.

We also know that our best work happens when we feel valued, supported, and recognised as the individuals we are. So we’re working hard to continue celebrating the diversity of our team, and are committed to growing this further. We encourage our team to talk confidently and passionately about what matters to them, inspiring them to share their knowledge and experiences. We also facilitate this through our internal information hubs and regular informal learning opportunities.

Our team are empowered to be solutions focused, commercially curious, and to be agile by nature. We show understanding, we don’t blame, we learn and we have fun!
