A talent officer is there to support the Human Resources team in finding and interviewing new talent for the company. They can do both headhunting and interviewing incoming candidates. They should also be able to either support the Onboarding Specialist with welcoming new team members or own this process themselves.
Some great skills to look out for in your Talent Officer are:
- Finding someone who’s a ‘people person’ would be very advantageous as they will be communicating with many different people both internally and externally.
- Great communication skills with a high level of attention to detail.
- Finding someone with great problem solving skills and an analytical mindset will be highly advantageous.
