A day in the life of...
When you get into the office, the first thing you will do is check on the performance of your live vacancies to ensure you are getting quality responses to the roles for which you are managing.
You then spend a good portion of your morning reviewing applications and screening applicants against the job descriptions, ensuring you are scheduling first round calls for those, which seem promising.
Working at Nestlé, you receive a very high volume of applicants per role. Despite the volumes, we are committed to reviewing every application, and as such, you find ways to be able to maintain pace of screening, whilst still giving candidates a great candidate experience.
After lunch, you go and meet a hiring manager to take a briefing about a new role they are looking to recruit. You are not working alone! For particularly hard to fill roles you are supported by a talent sourcer (think of it like an internal headhunter) and a recruitment marketing team to help build creative and compelling campaigns.
You are now close to filling a position you have been working on for a while, so spend the next hour on a telepresence final round interview. After speaking with the hiring manager you decide this person is a great match for Nestlé and start the process to extend an offer.
Before you finish for the day, you check your schedule for tomorrow, reminding hiring managers for feedback on some shortlists you sent them last week.
