AstraZeneca GmbH is the German subsidiary of the British-Swedish pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca PLC. We have had a presence in Germany since 1999. Since then we’ve gone from strength to strength and today, our factory in Wedel plays an important role in our International network. At our AstraZeneca site in Wedel, near Hamburg, we employ over 800 people in commercial and technical functions, packing and distribution and we’re rapidly growing day by day.

The Role:

Talent Acquisition at AstraZeneca has transformed. We have built a world class function by being more proactive with our recruitment approach and developing long term pipelines of talent. We are passionate about delivering a truly differentiated candidate experience and are building in-house teams to deliver this for the business.

The Talent Acquisition Lead for Germany has responsibility for developing and implementing recruitment strategies in partnership with HR Business Partners, Senior Business Leaders and Hiring Managers. Working pro-actively and anticipating talent needs, you will also provide recruitment forecasting and develop and execute robust sourcing plans.

Collaboration is key, and you will work with colleagues across multiple locations to identify and fill vacancies with top talent in a timely and cost-efficient manner. You will also actively manage executive recruitment activity - including the screening, interviewing, pre-selecting, offer management and managing the hiring administration process for executive roles. This is a key opportunity to work as part of our cutting edge in-house talent acquisition function using a broad range of influencing techniques.

Main Responsibilities:

You will be the single point of contact to the Business/Hiring Managers and HRBPs and you will develop, own, implement and manage the recruitment strategy for Germany. Considered an expert in Talent Acquisition, you will ensure both internal and external insights are captured and shared.

Building key relationships across the country and operating credibly at senior executive level, you will collaborate with HRBPs to support and input into the Strategic Workforce Plan (SWP) and external Talent Acquisition requirements. You will demand forecast ahead of time, develop and execute proactive talent acquisition strategies to meet the current needs of the business and build a pool of qualified candidates to meet future anticipated business requirements. 

You will be personally responsible for the end-to-end talent acquisition of senior critical hires to AstraZeneca Germany, while providing an outstanding customer experience (to Hiring Managers and candidates). Collaborating with HR Business Partners and other Centres of Expertise (CoE), you will co-design and implement best-in-class programs and processes that align with business requirements whilst ensuring country recruitment services are aligned to Global Recruitment framework/policies/guidelines & goals.

You will be involved in supporting global talent acquisition programmes, employee referral program, recruitment advertising, recruitment communications, recruitment sourcing media, sourcing planning and graduate and emerging talent recruitment etc. and act as a brand ambassador and social media expert continuously advising and coaching stakeholders on best practice.

Management of (whilst keeping to a minimum) vendor relationships where necessary and managing those relationships to ensure top level candidates are attracted to AstraZeneca will be a requirement of the role along with sharing vendor performance feedback with the Vendor Manager.

You will monitor the effectiveness of the Talent Acquisition processes, recommend and implement program additions and enhancements to optimize results whilst also developing and monitoring any country talent acquisition dashboard/ metric. A proactive and curious approach is needed to identify opportunities to drive innovation and continuous improvement to add value and share insights across the business.
