About the role

We have a team of brilliantly talented people at FutureGov and finding them isn’t easy, we need your help to uncover the most talented people out there as well as ensuring what we offer is exceeding marketing expectations. As Talent Manager you will be responsible for helping our team to grow and advising us on our talent and people strategy. You will have excellent knowledge of the roles across digital organisations and ideally an understanding of the complexities of local government which is our main client sector.
You’ll work directly with our Managing Director and leadership team to gain a thorough understanding of our growth plan and ambitions as well as working with our team to truly understand roles and gaps within the company, anticipating future needs and developing future talent pools.
You’ll support our Operations Director on all aspects of HR and work with our Studio Manager to help design and deliver a brilliant end to end recruitment process. You’ll establish strong relationships with the team in order to advise, influence and support on matters relating to HR, talent and development.
Now is the time for radical change in government. For new delivery models but equally new ways of designing our public services, fit for the future not held back by the past.
