Your job

The Career Mobility Centre is a new department that assists employees with various career queries. In the coming months, there will be a focus on employees facing redundancy and those ready to take the next step in their career. Employees who become redundant will be matched with temporary and permanent vacancies. Every IHC employee has full control over his or her own career. The Career Mobility Officer can use their knowledge, expertise and network to assist both the employee and manager.

The main duty of the Career Mobility Officer is to guide and help employees to find another suitable workplace. You will carry out the mobility policy for employees, managers and HR Business Partners, and will play an active part in managing the matching process. You will also advise the supervisor – together with the employee – and will be responsible for the implementation of the mobility process. In addition, the Career Mobility Officer will strike a good balance between compassion and pragmatism, and make every effort to find a suitable job while encouraging employees to seek a new position themselves. 

The successful candidate will be able to spot opportunities for candidates and will ensure the transition from one position to another is as smooth as possible. You will work in cooperation with supervisors, colleagues in the HR department, recruiters and relevant internal and external parties. The number of people will measure your success that you help, your personal effectiveness, corporate sensitivity, how you influence the internal network and the speed of your results. As Career Mobility Officer, your duties will include:

  • accompanying employees from job to job
  • advising on mobility projects and measures
  • deployment of complete network, utilising internal or external contacts
  • ensuring a complete dossier
  • assisting employees through the relevant processes in accordance with guidelines
  • discussing CVs, job assessments and capabilities with internal candidates
  • seeking internal vacancies and providing internal and external networking contacts
  • keeping track of candidates’ progress.
