Internal Recruiter – Oxford – hybrid & flexible working

Shaw Gibbs is a Top 100 independent accountancy, financial planning and insolvency practice with offices in Oxford and London W1. We have ambitious growth plans which are being achieved through our client-centric approach. We provide a rewarding and enjoyable place to work where everyone receives training and development, not just on technical knowledge but also on commercial and soft skills. Our culture is based on our values of collaboration, respect, innovation and expertise.

Due to planned growth, we are looking for an Internal Recruiter to lead our recruitment campaigns and turbo boost how we recruit! You will be based in our Oxford office but can work from home/remotely for part of the week. We are flexible on hours – this role could be full-time or part time. If you are interested in a full-time position, you will get the opportunity to work on other HR projects alongside recruitment.

  • Maximising the use of social media and other attraction methods

What we can offer you 

  • Varied, challenging and rewarding work in an exciting period of our company’s growth 
  • A friendly, supportive HR team in a progressive firm 
  • Plenty of support and development coaching – we don’t expect you to arrive as an expert in recruitment – we will train you on the job as you grow your career with us 
  • Flexible working
  • Competitive salary and benefits package including holiday trading, cycle to work, retail discount scheme, pension, life assurance 
  • Employee wellbeing and personal development programmes 
  • Comprehensive induction and a buddy to help you get up to speed in your first few months 

About You 

  • Excellent communication skills both verbal and written

  • Enthusiastic and outgoing – this will help you engage candidates with Shaw Gibbs 
  • Resilient and show initiative – we strive to hire the right person first time which means we are prepared to hold out for someone who is going to be a better culture fit to Shaw Gibbs. You will need to show resilience and be up for trying something different to attract candidates. 
  • Strong team player with a positive, can do attitude 
  • Thrive in a busy, fast paced environment 
  • Professional and client centric approach 
  • Great IT skills and able to pick up new IT packages very quickly 
  • Educated to A Level (or equivalent) or above 

Your personality and outlook on life is more important to us than how many years’ experience you have. That said, at least 1-2 years’ experience in recruitment, HR and/or admin would certainly be beneficial.
