Over the years we have published interviews with many of our employees and associates as a way of both introducing ourselves and explaining what talent acquisition looks like behind the scenes.
Today we’re pleased to introduce our researcher, Lina Beynar.
Your job title is ‘Researcher’. What exactly do you do?
The main function of my role is to source likely candidates for vacancies. Searching for possibles candidates involves working across various platforms, such as social media, our database and online CV boards.
The potentially suitable candidates are then contacted and briefed with regard to the role.
I also provide support/cover to our service delivery team and record and administer research activity of all researchers in the team.
