What does a typical day in your job involve?
Working in a busy department no day is the same. My role involves working closely with hiring managers across the business to ensure end to end recruitment activities are carried out effectively. A typical day as a Talent Acquisition Specialist could vary from posting vacancy advertisements, compiling shortlisting to hiring managers, assisting with interviews as well as coordinating and assisting with the promotion of Almac at recruitment/careers events.
What was it that made you choose Almac over other companies that interested you or with which you interviewed?
For me choosing Almac was a no brainer. A highly recognised organisation that provides career development and progression for all employees. Working in a fast paced, exciting environment where individuals are recognised for their contribution to the company’s success. Almac offer great competitive salary and not to mention a generous benefits package.
What projects have you worked on that have been particularly interesting?
Working as part of a busy Talent Acquisition Team I have been involved in a number of exciting projects. One project in particular I enjoyed working on was the recruitment open day for our newly established site in Dundalk. This involved creating promotional advertisements to increase exposure of the event and to promote new job opportunities. Coordinating and facilitating the event I got to see first-hand how successful the event was and how beneficial it was to the business.
How do you balance your career with your personal life?
I balance my career and personal life quite well and what makes it easier is doing a job I enjoy. It is important to take some time to yourself away from work and with the flexible working arrangement in place within Almac it makes work life balance a lot easier. Having a good support network both at home and at work, helps me keep a balance that suits my career and personal life.
