So, what will I be doing?

Recruitment is a tough cookie at the moment, and we are looking for that special someone to help us soften it up. As Talent Attraction Advisor you'll be instrumental in ensuring that Yeo Valley is able to attract and select the best possible talent in the production and supply chain job market. Working closely with Team Managers and Shift Managers, you'll be responsible for using various sourcing methods to attract high quality candidates for roles across the business.

Whereas the role is office based, we support hybrid working and can be flexible to give you the best work life balance. 
 
Key responsibilities:
 
  • Supporting Team Managers with day to day recruitment
  • Providing advice and guidance on ‘best practice’ recruitment and selection methods to hiring managers
  • Using our Applicant Tracking System (ATS) to support with the screening of applicants
  • Compiling shortlists of the best candidates to present to hiring managers.
  • Organising and coordinating interviews, on-site trials, and assessment centres
  • Managing the recruitment inbox
  • Working closely with the Talent Attraction Manager to ensure the delivery of a minimum of 100 Operative hires a year
  • Identifying and recommending continuous improvements in the recruitment process
  • Using a range of job posting platforms to ensure we attract the best people possible
  • Working with our Shared Services function to ensure there is a smooth on-boarding process for all new joiners
  • Ensuring the ATS is up to date and that candidates are progressed/rejected as necessary and that any candidates whose consent has expired are anonymised or deleted as required by GDPR regulations.

Sounds interesting, what do I need?

The important things:

  • Previous experience of recruiting high volumes of candidates (in-house/agency)
  • Experience of running and supporting interviews and assessment centres
  • CV sifting, telephone screening and interviewing experience
  • Demonstrable organisation and prioritisation skills
  • Ability to manage a demanding workload and work autonomously
  • A positive attitude 
Even better if:
  • You have experience of managing social media accounts.
  • Have a continuous improvement mindset and are always looking to challenge the norm.

Why should I join the family?

We’re independent, British and proud to be making the highest quality yogurts, desserts and ice cream under the Yeo Valley brand and for many of the UK’s major retailers. Operating from four dairies and two logistics centres in Somerset and Devon, we employ over 1700 staff and produce more than 25% of the UK’s packaged yogurt.

We’re sure you don’t need convincing, but there’s a whole host of benefits that we offer including:

  • 25 days’ holiday, plus bank holidays 
  • non-contributory pension scheme
  • life cover
  • healthcare cash back plan
  • cycle to work scheme
  • subsidised Yeo Valley products and services
  • preferential rates with our partners
  • annual bonus (as part of the Employee Benefit Trust, based on company performance for the year)
  • learning and development opportunities; we’re committed to ensuring all of our employees have the chance to grow

Our closing dates are a guide for when the application window should close, although we may close the advert sooner if we can. So, we recommend you get your application in straight away – and don’t miss the opportunity to join us!

Unfortunately, we’re not able to provide employment sponsorship to candidates at this moment in time.

Please note that Yeo Valley do not accept speculative agency applications; we will only accept applications from preferred suppliers that have been submitted to us via our recruitment portal at the point of instruction.
