Telus Talent Acquisition Consultant in QC, Canada

Are you interested in creating the future of work?

At TELUS, we’re looking for bright people who like solving big problems. And as part of the People & Culture team, you tackle all kinds. We are not your standard (traditional) HR. We embrace discomfort and we have fun doing it. We’re just as passionate about our team as we are about our customers and we’re looking for people that radiate this passion.

Here’s what we believe –

  • We are ONE team – there’s no room for egos or blame

  • Everything we do is tied to the business – not dictated by rules or policies

  • We challenge the status quo – and when others think we’re done, we make it better

  • We live up to our commitments – to ourselves, our friends, family, peers, leaders and our customers

  • Our success is all about how we do things – how we think, solve problems, deliver, communicate, and more

Position Overview:

In this role, you wear several hats: part consultant, part psychic, part counselor and part driver. Focusing 3-12 months out, you will work closely with the business to provide consultative support towards the execution of a proactive recruitment strategy, as well as developing a network of qualified talent to fulfill the organization's current and future needs.

You are a pragmatic, no-nonsense leader with a fantastic sense of humour. Your counsel is equal parts logic, analysis and strategy. You have a natural curiosity and you appreciate that failure and vulnerability are healthy ways to learn and grow. You are an experienced recruiter whose passion is to identify and attract exceptional talent for your team.
