  • Overview

    Do you have a proven ability to proactively target, engage, and close top talent, impressive experience of executing multiple full lifecycle recruiting assignments and a track record of delivering an outstanding experience for every candidate you deal with? Does the idea of recruiting top talent for a fast-moving, market leader in its field sound like the kind of challenge you could rise to? Then make the move to IDG.


    The world’s leading technology media, event, data and marketing services company, IDG influences the most powerful tech buyers in the world — from business technologists to enthusiasts and everyone in between. And, as both media and marketing continue to evolve, we remain committed to delivering innovation to our diverse customer base. To remain ahead of the game however, we need to attract people equipped to deliver on the company’s mission at every level.  We also need to build an effective pipeline of key talent potentially available for hire according to succession planning needs and develop and retain high performers and ensure that everyone who works here can maximize their potential.


    As a Talent Attraction Manager, we’ll rely on you to own the full recruiting lifecycle - from research to close - on a full range of positions, not just in media, but also as we expand into more technical areas like data scientists and product development. A key aspect of the role will involve driving candidate sourcing strategies to attract and hire top quality talent. Accordingly, you’ll need to partner with hiring managers to clearly understand their requirements for each assignment. You’ll also need to develop a deep understanding of each team’s dynamics, how the role and its team contribute to the overall company goals, and how to position the role to attract and retain ‘A’ players. Sourcing qualified candidates, reviewing résumés and pre-screening candidates while moving the interview process forward – these are just some elements of this high profile recruiting role.


    To succeeed, you’ll need a relentless drive to find and connect with the best talent, plus a disciplined strategy to source, engage, and nurture prospective candidates. A proven success at creating and implementing sourcing strategies utilizing various tools and techniques, you’re great at building trust and relationships with internal customers and candidates alike. What’s more, you’re used to developing and managing a diverse candidate pipeline and have a flair for prioritizing tasks/goals in a challenging, fast-paced environment. If you already have some technical recruiting experience, even better, although this is not as essential as your assetive yet flexibel approiach and ability to quickly get to grips with a company’s culture and values.


    Sound like you? Then you could soon be enjoying some excellent benefits including health (medical, dental, and vision), 401k, and time off allocations, which are available to all employees from day one of employment. What’s more, because we love new ideas and ways of working, should you join us, we’ll recognise and reward you for both. And, as we grow, so will your career, in a fast-paced environment where the opportunities are truly unlimited.
