Talent Acquisition Manager - Commercial
What we do at Codat
Codat is a fast-growing technology company headquartered in Clerkenwell, Central London. Our product is a universal API for small business financial data.
We build developer-friendly infrastructure that gives businesses the ability to create their own next-generation products without sacrificing time to market. We are well-funded with a large and growing number of enterprise and fintech clients.
We’ve most recently received a $10 million investment from Index Ventures, a leading global venture capital firm, to help power our growth with a focus on expansion into the US. We were also awarded a total of £7.5m worth of grants from the RBS Capability and Innovation Fund over the last two years.
What you will be doing
As Codat continues its rapid scaling, the People team are handling 15+ roles at the same time and managing anywhere between 20-50 direct applicants per day. As a Talent Acquisition Manager, you will be joining the existing team and take charge of managing Codat’s recruitment for our Commercial teams, across the UK and the US. As we enter into 2021, we are looking to triple the size of our Commercial teams across both offices so it will become your individual responsibility to hit our targeted hiring numbers, within the timescales set out and ensure we as a business can achieve our revenue goals for the year.
You will ensure we have a well-run, smooth recruitment experience for all candidates no matter their source. You will run and manage our direct to source recruitment channels to minimise recruitment costs, increase direct hires and ensure we are hiring the highest calibre of candidates possible. You will also be managing relationships with external recruitment partners to ensure we have good processes, excellent communication and ultimately get the best candidates at the best rates.

No matter what we’re doing - whether we’re speaking to customers, partners or to each other - we live by our values.
We believe in delivering useful technology that solves real problems for real businesses. We have a real want to do the stuff that isn't always “cool” but makes a difference.
We believe that the people in the best teams push and enable each other to excel. We’re united when we have each other’s backs - when something goes wrong, we don’t blame, we work together to fix it. We embrace differences of opinion to end up with better outcomes. We don’t let our egos win.
We believe that an unstoppable drive towards a single, clearly stated goal is the best way to build great things. We are biased towards action - we make informed decisions and then we act. There is no such thing as an impossible problem, just a great challenge to sink our teeth into.
