Talent Judge

If you know star quality when you see it keep reading!

Stroud Resourcing is a boutique, award-winning York based headhunting firm that is well-established and well-loved because we solve our client’s problems and create a great experience for everyone involved. We are a first of our kind recruitment firm – we deliver great customer service – we make things happen – we strive to be the best – that’s why we represent some of the largest and most innovative healthcare providers.

Our job is to find hidden healthcare heroes for the clients that we represent; superstars that will hit the ground running and make a significant difference. The healthcare heroes that we approach are not sitting on CV databases and they won’t apply to an advert no matter how enticing the content – it’s up to us to engage these individuals and persuasively position job opportunities.

An employee stated, “This role is exhilarating and varied – we’re a business committed to diversity and we want to empower people to help us continue building our brilliant business. Whether you graduated recently, or you’ve never graduated, if you feel you have what it takes, if you want a change in your career, or more flexibility with hours around your family, apply now! We recruit for attitude and train for skill.”

 

What we need from our Talent Judge:

  • Insightfulness In this job we must separate the best from the rest. That means understanding our client’s requirements and matching them to a superstar candidate through holding thorough phone interviews. If you are not astute, do not apply.
  • Build rapport We’re dealing with humans who change their mind and have their own agenda. Whether that’s a client or candidate, you need to gain trust and have everyone achieve an outcome that they are happy with.
  • Resilience Unlike most recruitment firms, we don’t need to do a lot of business development and as a Talent Specialist this won’t be part of your job, but the word ‘no’ will be a stock answer from many candidates.
  • Organisation If you weren’t born to be organised, you won’t enjoy this job. Its plate-spinning on an epic scale and you need to match our passion for process, we’re a very structured business.

 

What you will do as our Talent Judge:

  • Search for superstars! We’re a headhunting firm, not a database recruitment firm – so we’ll teach you how to headhunt. You’ll use our industry leading software and social media stream such as LinkedIn to map out talent.
  • Work collaboratively We rely on each other to achieve results. You’ll partner with a Recruitment Consultant to bring campaigns to fruition.
  • Consultative selling! Whilst this is not a business development role, you are always promoting the clients we represent and persuasively positioning their brand. Some days you will be on the phone all day, contacting candidates, interviewing candidates, you must enjoy talking to people.

 

Why we LOVE working with Stroud Resourcing:

  • We are busy, VERY busy and so no day will be the same. We are a growing company who are passionate about what we do – there is ample opportunity for this role to develop into a Recruitment Consultant position.
  • We are a conventional business with an unconventional culture – we are building a business for our people. We love what we do, we work hard, and fun is always on our agenda!
  • We celebrate success! We appreciate and often enjoy great food, have drinks after work, organise team building activities and have long term incentives, quarterly employee awards and a great values and recognition program.
  • Great benefits! Health and wellbeing program, Fizzy Friday’s, charity fundraising, childcare vouchers, pension, and 25 days holiday (Not enough? We also have a sabbatical program and two puppy playmates who offer unconditional love and cuddles!)

 

Salary and Benefits: Uncapped commission with on track earnings of £25,000 in your first year (base salary £18,750) + 25 days holiday (plus Bank Holidays) + Pension + Sabbatical + Regular social events + Team building activities + Childcare vouchers + much more!

Part-Time or Full-Time hours (minimum 24 hrs per week, minimum 3-day week)

Baby due in October or November?

Are you due to have a baby in October or early November?

I am currently studying at The Northern School of Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy, on a journey to one day working as a psychotherapist in child and adolescent mental health services.

A part of my training is to observe a baby growing up in their family for one hour a week over a period of two years. The aim of the observation is to see how a baby develops within the context of human relationships in an ordinary family. This will give me a first-hand experience about the physical, mental and emotional development of a baby in the first two years of his/her life.

If you live in the York, Leeds or Harrogate area and are at all interested in being involved in supporting my training and would like to know more, please contact me on annarachelyoung@gmail.com or 07877031944.

Research for 1 – 5 month old babies and their parents

‘I HEAR YOUR EMOTIONS’ project is looking for participants

Researchers at the York Developmental Social Neuroscience Lab (University of York) are inviting 1- to 5-months-old babies and their parents to participate in the project ‘I hear your emotions’.

Detecting and telling apart the emotions shown by the people around us is a crucial skill for our social lives. Changes in facial or vocal expressivity tell us how people feel and guide how we interact with them. Scientists have also shown that already at birth babies can tell apart different emotional modulations present in the voice. However, we know far less about how these abilities change during the first years of life. Our project focuses on understanding how the baby brain develops to detect and differentiate between different emotions expressed in the voice throughout the first year of life.

Participating in this project involves one visit, lasting approximately one hour, to the University of York. During the research session, your baby will hear voices of other babies or of adults with different emotional intonations (e.g., happy, sad, angry). In order to record how the brain responds to these sounds, your baby will wear a special hat with sensors embedded in it (like the one shown in the picture). The hat is specifically designed for babies and it is comfortable to wear. The sensors are not harmful. They only capture the weak signal coming from the brain, in a similar way to the sensors present in smart watches for recording the heart activity. You will be with your baby at all times.

Parents receive £10 to support the trip to the University of York and babies receive a small gift as a token of our appreciation for their help. We also provide free parking in case you decide to travel by car.

If you have a baby 1- to 5-months-old and are interested to take part in the project, please sign-up by filling in the form HERE.

The information you provide will be stored securely and will not be shared with anyone outside our team.

Filling in the form does not mean you consent to participate. We will soon get in touch with more details about the project, and then you can decide whether you would like to schedule a research session at a date and time that suits you.

In case you would like to find out more before signing up, please contact us at: psychology-dsn-lab@york.ac.uk

We are looking forward to hearing from you!

Research for 8 month old babies and their parents

8-months-old babies and their parents are invited to participate in the ‘Empathy Development’ project

At York Developmental Social Neuroscience Lab (University of York), we research how babies’ responses to people’s emotions lay the foundations for empathy development. Empathy and altruistic behaviours are important for harmonious interactions with others and building friendships. In this project, we are interested in finding out how, over the course of 10-months, babies’ abilities to detect and respond to others’ emotions change from simple to more complex forms of social interaction. Learning about how empathy develops in the first years of life, will help us foster the emotional wellbeing of children.

We will collect information about baby’s responses to people’s emotions through research visits at the Lab (University of York) and through questionnaires, at three time points (8-, 12-, and 18-months). The activities in the lab are designed to be safe and engaging for babies.

Parents receive £10 at each time point and babies receive a small gift as a token of our appreciation for their help. We also provide free parking during the research sessions at the lab.

If you have a baby 8-months-old or nearing this age and are interested to take part in the project, please sign-up by filling in the form HERE

The information you provide will be stored securely and will not be shared with anyone outside our team.

Filling in the form does not mean you consent to participate. We will soon get in touch with more details about the project, and then you can decide whether you would like to schedule a research session at a date and time that suits you.

Be a Mumbler Guest Reviewer

There is so much going on in York for families – I can’t review it all alone! Plus I believe that it’s important to get a wide range of views over what is good to do in York for families – we all have different opinions after all and we’re looking for different things.

I am often asked to review classes, days out and theatre productions among other things so I’d love to get together a team of volunteer guest reviewers who can go along and try out things, then let the Mumblers know what they thought.

This normally means attending the event, show, class or attraction, taking photos, enjoying whatever it is and then writing a short review afterwards for the website which is then shared on social media. Reviews must be completed within 24 hours of enjoying the activity.

If you think this is something that you may like to get involved in, please do contact me HERE telling me how old your children are, where you live, any specific interests and what like about Mumbler. I’d also like you to write a short review (approx 500 words) for something you’ve done with the kids recently so I can see the style of your writing and what you cover. Do send any questions you may have at any point.

It is quite a good way to get back into work, keep your hand in during maternity leave or just experience some really cool things that you may not normally do with your kids.


York Neighbours – Volunteer Positions

Could you help an older person living near you? Volunteer with York Neighbours to help people over 65 in York to remain independent and to reduce loneliness and social isolation.
We need volunteers to help in the following ways:
Help with practical one off tasks in the home such as changing a light bulb, shopping or hanging curtains.
Making phone calls to people.
Helping with our outings.

All volunteers need to complete a DBS check and attend a safeguarding training session. After this we ask for no minimum time commitment.

Visit our website www.yorkneighbours.org.uk, email: info@yorkneighbous.org.uk or call us on 01904 891627


Join the York Mumbler Team!

York Mumbler is the go-to place for families in York. The website is visited over 20,000 times per month and our facebook group has almost 19,000 members.

We get a huge number of enquiries every week from local people and businesses who want to work with York Mumbler and we want to make sure we are giving everyone a high quality level of service.

I’m looking for people who are passionate about Mumbler and want to join the team!

We are recruiting for various volunteers to help admin the facebook group and also 1 person to work with Emily on the advertising side of the business which will be a paid role.

Sales / Advertising role: 

The ideal candidate will be someone with high levels of confidence and great communications skills, as well as being really organised. You need to be good with detail and take pride in doing a job well.  You’ll be required to give really high quality responses to advertising enquiries & have the ability to think about other people’s needs for their organisation. Sales experience would be great but it’s not essential… it’s not about cold calling (we never do this) but it’s about responding to organisations well and ensuring the promotion on Mumbler is right for them.

The details of the role (hours, pay, location etc) are to be confirmed as it will be dependant on the skills and lifestyle requirements of the successful applicant (The hours can work around your own childcare needs… school hours, flexible etc) but it will be broadly 12 hours per week and likely to be around the living wage pay on a sub-contract basis.

Volunteers:

90% of what we do on Mumbler is free of charge and I want to keep it that way. It’s free for people to use both the website and the Facebook group and most businesses can have a free listing somewhere on the website as long as there is a relevant area. This takes a lot of time and upkeep so I’m looking for volunteers to help with the running of the facebook group and the website.

The details of the volunteer roles can be altered based on the applicants own personal passion areas and experience. Anything can be taught but I want to hear from people who love mumbler and want to make life easier for parents in York.

Working and volunteering for Mumbler would suit someone wanting to combine work with bringing up children in York and with a passion for making family life easier.

To apply to be part of the York Mumbler Family just e-mail emily@mumbler.co.uk with your CV attached and answer the following questions:

  1. Describe York Mumbler – what it means to you and the parents of York.
  2. Why do you want to work or volunteer for York Mumbler?
  3. How would your boss (past or present) describe you in no more than 10 words?
  4. How would your friends or family describe you in no more than 10 words?

Thanks and I’m looking forward to hearing from you!

Martin House Children’s Hospice- Volunteers

Every year, Martin House Hospice Care for Children and Young People cares for over 400 families – but we also need your support!

Martin House, which supports children and young people with life-limiting conditions, is looking for volunteers to help our fundraising across York.

The money you help to raise will make a real difference to the lives of the families we support. For example, raising £500 could pay for a parents’ support group, which gives mums and dads a place to relax, try new activities and share experiences with others in a similar situation.

Martin House provides respite stays at our hospice in Boston Spa, as well as providing care in hospital and in their own homes. Our care also includes emergency stays and end of life care, as well as bereavement support for the whole family.

It costs £22,000 a day to run Martin House, and most of that has to be raised by voluntary donations and fundraising, so the support of our communities is vital.

You may be able to host a collection tin at your place of work or have a silly dressing up day. There are also lots of other events in York including coffee mornings and bake sales and you are more than welcome to be involved if you can spare the time.

We also have a shop in Acomb where you can donate your unwanted items, or volunteer your time. If you have the time, we have an opportunity for you!

To find out more, contact Becky Nicholson, Regional Fundraiser, at bnicholson@martinghouse.org.uk or phone 07827 959684.


Kyra Women’s Project Volunteer – Supporting women to make change

Do you have a few hours spare on a regular basis and are you passionate about helping women to improve their lives?
Volunteers at Kyra all have one thing in common – they care deeply about supporting women to grow and make positive change in their lives.
We have various volunteer roles available, including drop-in support, craft activities support, course facilitators, admin’, social media, events organisers and more. We offer a thorough induction for new volunteers, a buddy system and ongoing training opportunities, all helping to ensure our volunteers feel supported and valued. We also invite our whole volunteer team to our monthly shared supper and meeting.
Kyra supports women who may be emotionally vulnerable or who are looking for help to improve their well-being. Our members might be struggling with confidence or self-esteem following a period of difficulty, may be in recovery from addiction or from domestic abuse, managing mental health difficulties, including anxiety and depression, rebuilding their lives following loss or bereavement, or may simply want to feel less socially isolated… in fact, there is no typical woman who accesses Kyra’s services – every woman is unique.
Kyra offers a variety of courses, drop-ins, creative classes, counselling, alternative therapies, access to financial and legal advice – our range of services continues to grow year on year.
Due to the nature of the support Kyra gives, all volunteers need DBS clearance.
Volunteer applications are restricted to women due to the nature of the volunteer roles. The Occupational Requirement under Schedule 9 (part 1) of the Equality Act 2010 applies.

If you are interested in joining our very friendly team and would like more information or an application form, please contact Gill at gill@kyra.org.uk or phone 01904 63 23 32

Whatever your skills, as long as you can work as part of a team and are passionate about raising money we’d love to hear from you!

The National Childbirth Trust (NCT)

This is what volunteering for York NCT looks like. The York branch has a number of bumps and babies and coffee groups running regularly as well as a cloth nappy library. We also have a newsletter, a website (which really needs updating), regular Baby First Aid classes which are run in collaboration with the British Red Cross and we attend local events when we can to share information about support available through NCT.

Our volunteers meet when and where we can – often with toddlers and babies in tow to talk about what’s happening in branch and make decisions and plans for the coming months. Our very informal monthly meeting is on the second Tuesday of the month and we vary the times so that it happens on days and evenings to make it more accessible for different schedules. We have a number of volunteering opportunities available short term or long term from supporting the branch by lending your voice in meetings, taking on small administrative opportunities to picking up specific roles where you can spend a few hours a month helping the branch at times that suit you. We are a small team of friendly and supportive volunteers and would love to see some new faces so please get in touch via coordinator.york@nct.org.uk if you have any questions or want to express an interest in getting involved. We welcome people to attend meet ups or informal meetings with no obligation to take on specific responsibilities.
