PwC’s Resource Management (RM) team has been brought together across our whole firm to enable our business to be even more agile in the ever evolving markets we work with, providing the right people on the right projects at the right time.

As a Resourcing Officer, you’ll support the South East business unit and play a pivotal role in the delivery of operational excellence. Working as part of a high performing team, this role would suit a commercially minded problem solver. It is also a people focused role, founded on establishing effective working relationships with stakeholders across the business.

We are currently recruiting for this position in multiple locations. The first role could be based in Uxbridge or St Albans, covering resourcing for the Cambridge, St Albans and Uxbridge offices which form the North Cluster of the South East Assurance business unit; some travel will be required.

Priority tasks include:
  • Day to day deployment of staff to projects/assignments balancing the commercial needs of the business with the wishes of the individual

  • Analysis and presentation of information and insight to advise the business

  • Build strong lasting relationships within the South East business unit and the wider resourcing function to build knowledge and enable greater effectiveness in providing solutions for resourcing demands

  • Being prepared to adopt to new methodologies and ways of working

  • Working collaboratively in a cohesive team environment to deliver your objectives

  • Improving agility by utilising people within your immediate area and across the firm as a whole, encouraging fair work allocation

Skills And Experience
  • You will be adept at managing resourcing conflicts and priorities

  • Ability to use data from various sources to support decision making

  • Evidence of actively seeking and identifying opportunities for personal development

  • Demonstrable experience of workforce planning, resourcing, recruitment or project management within a professional environment is highly desirable

  • An ability to cultivate and maintain strong relationships, and to communicate and negotiate with stakeholders

  • Able to plan, prioritise, multi-task and manage a significant workload, often under pressure and at pace

  • Must be comfortable and confident with use of business systems – Microsoft Office or Google equivalent is essential (particularly Excel); experience of using data driven dashboards (eg. Qlikview) would be useful

  • Knowledge of manpower planning systems (eg. Talentlink, Retain) would be advantageous

  • Stakeholder management

  • Building relationships with stakeholders to become a trusted advisor and point of contact on resourcing matters

  • Actively manage expectations and escalate where necessary
