Talent Sourcer - #43834


Date: 2 weeks ago
City: Abu Dhabi
Contract type: Full time

How you can make your mark

A talent sourcer within Boskalis, isn’t a recruiter’s sidekick. On the contrary, you will be able to make your mark in the recruitment department. For the vacancies where job marketing doesn’t lead to enough qualified candidates, sourcing, online identification, and personal outreach to prospect candidates could be a solution. And that’s exactly what you are going to do.

You will scout and source globally for our most critical roles and build talent pools for our dredging and offshore projects. For example, the project engineers you source help design and construct the new airport in Manilla, which will help create new jobs, attract investment, and boost tourism in the Philippines. Or the cost engineers you identify, calculate a competitive cost proposition which led to Boskalis being awarded the foundation scope for the Taiwanese Changfang and Xidao offshore wind farm. That's how you contribute to the energy transition. Isn't that cool?

As a talent sourcer we expect you to be a strategic partner, creative in approaching talent and act like a true brand ambassador for Boskalis to make a long-lasting impression on talent acquisition efforts.

Good to know: You will be part of the international team of recruitment specialists at Boskalis. This team is not only driven and sociable, but also likes to work together.

  • Based on your experience and insights into the labor market and recruitment, you advise as a strategic partner and act as a liaison between the business and talent acquisition.
  • Design and set up sourcing strategy and processes and train others.
