Job Category:  Other
Contract Partner Company:  Wessex Water
Employing Company:  Wessex Water

The HPC Jobs Service supports local people into exciting, long-term careers across our Project.



What will I be doing? 

We are growing at significant pace and our ability to attract and hire the best; most diverse talent is more important than ever. This will be a very busy role with conflicting priorities, and we are looking for someone who wants to join us who thrives in a fast-paced environment and has the ability to work across a diverse set of businesses.

You will be pivotal in providing both strategic and hands on support to our hiring managers to ensure that the recruitment lifecycle is managed efficiently and effectively, from initial demand and concept, through to onboarding. Coaching, challenging and supporting hiring managers through the process will be a large focus of your role, alongside recruitment and onboarding administration and support.

This role is hands on and based at Hinkley Point C in Bridgwater three days a week, with the remainder of the week based at the Pelican office in Nailsea with the rest of the People team.


You will have considerable experience of recruitment/resourcing (preferably in-house), and bring with you insight of the marketplace, candidate experience and recruitment toolkit. Due to the nature of the roles we are predominantly recruiting, an understanding of the construction industry would be a real benefit, but is not essential as long as you have the drive to learn.


Coaching and supporting the hiring managers is key to this role, therefore you should be comfortable interacting with them and be a natural communicator, able to engage and influence, with good attention to detail.


You will require strong planning and organising skills and be able to manage a varied workload with multiple priorities.
If this sounds like you, we'd love to hear from you.
