At itison, we believe life is about the experience.  

We match our 1.7m households to the best local businesses, create our own world class events, run some of our home city’s best venues, and donate experiences to those who need them the most through our own charity.  

We believe our business should be a force for good and a great place for a career, but above all we believe work should be fun and that the experience starts with us.   

We’re looking for an ambitious and driven HR & Recruitment co-ordinator to join our People & Culture team working across itison, major events and itison venues.   

What you’ll be doing 

As part of our HR team you will play a key role in upholding and developing our company culture, assist with recruitment campaigns, headhunting, on-boarding and developing & delivering training programmes. 

You will be up to date with HR and recruitment legislation, a whizz with systems and processes, an organised and efficient worker, and great at juggling priorities and curve balls. 

You must be approachable, trustworthy, reliable, have a flexible approach to work and be calm under pressure.  We’re also looking for someone who is positive, has a can-do attitude and tackles challenges head on. 

This is a full-time position, based in our head office in Glasgow city centre. 

You should have a minimum of two years’ professional experience in an HR and recruitment role, and ideally be CIPD accredited, or working towards this.  Experience of training creation and delivery would be a bonus. 

What this job is 

  • Fast paced – We are a fast-paced, growing business, where recruitment priorities can change week to week.  You will need to be a smart, quick and agile worker, someone who thrives on pressure, and be self-motivated to meet deadlines and deliver on time. 

  • Personal – Our company culture really matters to us, and when we’re recruiting it’s key that we find people who share our values and add something positive to our team.  This role helps make that happen and we want someone who will take that responsibility seriously, personally, and relish the challenge 

  • A great future – this job is brilliant for someone who’s as ambitious and passionate as we are, keen to develop themselves, and looking for a career, not just a job 

What to expect from the role 

A lot of fun and reward, but also hard work – you’ll need to thrive in a fast-paced environment, be able to think on your feet, juggle multiple priorities, and deal with the occasional curve-ball. 

You’ll need to have the core competencies we’ve asked for to do this role and be confident liaising with people at all levels within the company.
