Before we begin, allow us to introduce ourselves.


We are SMRS. We help organisations change for the better. We’re natural explorers who collaborate, question and analyse across employer, education and youth marketing to find new ways to help clients overcome challenges both now and in the future. We give a damn about everything we do — only creating work we believe will make a difference. And we bring this to life by adding colour with bright, creative thinking that stands out from the crowd.


We’re always looking to attract the best and brightest talent to join our team (and we’re not just talking about this role). We’re looking for someone who will not only bring their own impressive skillset to business, but also attract other talented individuals to join our team too.

This people-focused role is all about making sure that we continue to attract high quality people to the business, and then making sure we get the best out of them once they’re here.

This means you’ll take the lead on talent attraction and engagement, using social media, professional networking and talent pipelining to achieve our goals. You’ll become a key figure in the agency for all things culture and values — building strong relationships that allow you to ensure that both new and existing employees are united behind common beliefs and a shared purpose.

To make a difference in this role you’ll need to be a real team player and an effective communicator, someone who’s keen to build a wide range of HR skills and play a hands-on role shaping our culture and improving employee experience.

We’re looking for someone who can hit the ground running, so ideally you’ll be working towards (or have already completed) a Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development qualification. If you’re an experienced recruiter with excellent candidate sourcing skills, we’d love to hear from you. And if you’ve got specific experience around apprenticeships on top of that, this position could be made for you.

This is your chance to play an influential role in attracting and retaining top talent to work for an agency with a history of recognising and rewarding great people. If that’s an opportunity that excites you, let’s talk…
