To ensure City & Guilds continues to achieve great first-class standards, we are looking for a Resourcing Executive who will contribute to making sure we are attracting and engaging with best Associates across many different industries. 

The purpose of the role is to determine recruitment requirements and coordinate the search and recruitment of Associates to ensure an adequate, fit for purpose number of Associates to support the development, delivery, assessment and quality assurance of City & Guilds products and services. 

This is a full-time role, working 35 hours per week.
