You will have a strong sense of team spirit and the versatility required to support our HR consultants, recruiters, sourcing staff and branch managers.

Sourcing Specialist

A sourcing specialist’s responsibilities include searching social networks and other associated sites to find suitable candidates, sending out recruitment e-mails and organising an effective candidate reference system. To succeed in this role, you will need to combine knowledge of sourcing methods with exceptional verbal and written communication skills. You will ultimately be responsible for putting together a strong pool of talented candidates to meet our clients’ current and future needs.


Your job is to provide the sales force with a continuous supply of talent organised by business area and geographical region. A recruiter’s responsibilities start with identifying the requirement at hand, monitoring (active and passive) sourcing of potential candidates and preselecting CVs and carry on right through to arranging interviews and checking references and background information. The recruitment process calls for a creative approach, using both traditional and non-traditional resources and a network of contacts set up to spot and attract talent. These resources often include community networking events, job fairs, training institutions, online sources and marketing activities. Recruitment also involves establishing direct contact through searching for candidates currently in employment.


Your job is to acquire and manage contracts to select qualified staff for permanent, temporary or project-based positions in key strategic sectors. You will be responsible for the entire process from analysing the client’s needs to concluding contracts. As part of these assignments, you will take care of sourcing, recruiting, evaluating and selecting qualified candidate(s) using the company’s HR processes. You will conduct interviews, evaluate personality profiles and prepare application files for our clients. With your methodical work on the market and your flair for sales, you will cultivate and develop a network of clients and candidates with the aim of satisfying their mutual needs in the best possible way.

With the help of your management staff, you will lead a team of employees, helping them to meet and surpass their objectives. You will also set an example in ensuring the right balance between supply and demand. You will match the needs of job seekers with those of businesses to accommodate candidates and help clients achieve success. You will pay particular attention to managing your own branch’s clients, taking advantage of every opportunity to develop new clients or markets. You will serve as Manpower’s primary ambassador in various circles or networks in which you are involved in your area of activity, representing the Manpower brand and values at external events.

You will have a direct impact on the results produced by your branch.
