The role of a Resourcer involves:

• Managing a consistent flow of qualified candidates through active and passive recruitment methods

• Reviewing CVs and conducting phone interviews with potential candidates to qualify work history, education and job skills

• Handling any incoming enquiries from candidates regarding open positions
