Resourcing Advisor

Why Moorhouse?

At Moorhouse, you can really make a difference! 

As we continue to grow as a firm, our principles and values remain at the forefront of everything we do. Our clients are FTSE 100 / 250 companies or major government departments, and we work with them on their most complex, high-profile transformation programmes. 

Our people are some of the best you will have the opportunity to work with and learn from. What stands them apart is the genuine realisation that we can all excel, grow and develop our careers in Moorhouse together. Our people do not need to compete with each other because of promotion quotas or the typical distribution curves that govern performance management in other organisations. We recognise and reward performance consistently and transparently across the firm so that everyone knows where they stand. 

We are absolutely committed to building and nurturing our people and harnessing their ambition and desire to be the very best they can be. For this reason, we are expanding the People & Talent team to support this commitment and our continued growth as a firm.

About the team 

As a member of the People & Talent team you will have an opportunity to be at the forefront of shaping and leading people services in a fast-growing and successful consulting firm.  This includes everything we do to attract, recruit, develop and engage the very best people. You’ll be working as part of a high performing and collaborative team who play an active role in:

  • Developing Extraordinary Leaders – ensuring that we continue to deliver on our commitment to develop extraordinary leaders regardless of grade or role (this includes you too!).
  • Supporting Accelerated Career Progression - learning and career development is extremely important to us. Supporting the accelerated career development of everyone in Moorhouse comes from a blended approach to learning and development. 
  • Talent Management – looking at how people management can continue to be a differentiator for us as a firm and supporting people to get the most out of their time at Moorhouse.  This includes creating exciting opportunities for people; proactively and passionately supporting their continued professional development; and, making sure that we have the right foundations, infrastructure and processes to make working at Moorhouse a supportive, transparent, non-hierarchical and rewarding place to be.
  • Attracting, recruiting and onboarding the very best people – constantly thinking about how we do this so that regardless of whether people choose to join us, they have had a positive experience and know more about us as a firm.

We like to move fast as a team, so honesty and integrity is key to this.  In return you will be part of a supportive team that shares the workload, looks after each other and celebrates success together.  

About your role

The Resourcing Advisor is an exciting and varied role. No two days are the same so what you’ll be up to will vary. We operate in a fast-paced environment which means priorities can sometimes change and so you will need to be comfortable with dealing with ambiguity (we will support you, of course!). You will be responsible for delivering end to end resourcing solutions to the business. Activities that will be core to your role include:

Resource Management:

  • • Proactively maintaining an understanding of the business and the skills needed for our propositions. 
  • • Actively engaging with opportunity leads to understand the proposed resource model, ensuring resource requirements are known and can be met.
  • • Working with our consultants to understand their skills, experiences and career goals for appropriate alignment of projects whilst also keeping them updated as opportunities arise and change for them.
  • • Running weekly resource management meetings with the Leadership Team to solve resourcing requests, forecast utilisation and availability levels and advise on key business developments which may affect upcoming performance.
  • • Reporting on headcount management and capacity planning, optimising the utilisation and chargeability of our consultants.
  • • Managing and reporting on the opportunity pipeline (using a resourcing software application, Financial Force) to ensure that we have an accurate view of resource requirements across all opportunities. 
  • • Collaborating with the wider People and Talent Team to understand development needs of our consultants to ensure resource planning is aligned.
  • • Partnering with recruitment to advise on upcoming needs.
  • • Overseeing the bench ensuring consultants are effectively utilised when not on chargeable client work.


Recruitment:

  • • Leading on the recruitment of associate consultants to build a flexible extension to our permanent consultant base.
  • • Sourcing, screening and selecting associate consultants against requirements and arranging interviews with opportunity leads.
  • • Partnering with other organisations to support any additional resourcing needs which we can’t meet with our permanent consultant base.
  • • On-boarding associate consultants whilst following processes that maintain strict compliance with relevant legislations such as IR35.
  • • Ensuring all new associate consultants receive a thorough induction and that they are set up for success. 
  • • Tracking availability and maintaining relationships with the associate network to help meet resource requirements.


Engage:

  • • Be the key contact and face of Moorhouse for entire network of Associates and 3rd party partnerships
  • • Negotiate terms and conditions with Associates ensuring a balance based on diversity, skills and capabilities
  • • Proactively engage with the Associate network to maintain a level of connection using creative channels e.g., regular newsletters and other methods of communication . 

This role requires a highly proactive, collaborative and self-motivated team player who is keen to drive through ideas and recommendations. The role will suit someone who is positive, full of initiative, and who is happy to roll their sleeves up and get stuck in.
