  • Assist in continuing to grow and build our links with bootcamps, career change and return to work organisations, such as Generation UK, AWS re:start and Tech Returners, to source candidates from a wider pool and offer opportunities to a wider range of people.
  • Deliver a quality experience for all candidates, ensuring they are processed and communicated with in a timely manner and with the trademark friendly and people-focussed approach that Infinity Works are well known for.
  • Keep a record of all contact with candidates via our ATS system ‘Workable’, ensuring that candidates are moved through the recruitment pipeline appropriately.
  • Organising and facilitating assessment days, ensuring all assessors and candidates are aware of where they need to be, what they need to do, and when.
  • Feed back to both successful and unsuccessful candidates following assessment days.
  • Academy operation focussed
  • Help organise and project manage the running of multiple Academy programmes, including our Generation charity partnership and any client academies
  • Setup, organise and maintain our timesheet and expense system for use by the academites, instructors and guest speakers
  • Liaise with stakeholders across Infinity Works and Accenture to ensure relevant people within the business are fully involved in Academy activity for their region.
  • Maintaining regular communication and pastoral care of ‘academites’ prior to, and when they join the organisation, to ensure an impeccable onboarding experience.
