Over the past 60 years ManpowerGroup has grown into one of the UK's leading recruitment agencies. Specialising in both temporary and permanent recruitment solutions via our specialist branch network across 50+ locations, we strive to deliver a tailored approach to each of our unique customers.

ManpowerGroup are looking to appoint three Permanent Placement Trainers to work across the Group brands of Brook Street, Manpower and Experis.

These individuals will be reporting into the current Learning & Development Manager although will be required to work with the Brand National Perm Managers to ensure consistency of approach.

The successful individuals will be required to play a key role in the successful onboarding and inductions of all new starters & ongoing training and coaching needs.
