Website Pragmatic


It is an extremely exciting time at Pragmatic – we have consistently grown over the last 2 years and have further, significant plans to expand our headcount, both in the North East and in Cambridge.

As a result, we are recruiting a Talent Acquisition Specialist to join us on a fixed-term contract to help us deliver our headcount objectives in order to achieve our ambitious growth plans. We are looking for the very best people for Pragmatic, as well as the best technical fit for every role, and we are very proud of the culture we have built around our core values. We are therefore looking someone whose values strongly match our own, with the desire to take us to the next level and help us be the very best.

The successful candidate will be based in Cambridge, working within the Talent Team (and the wider People Team) and with hiring managers to recruit and retain the best talent within semiconductors. The Talent Acquisition Specialist will be responsible for delivering mainly experienced hires across functions including Technology (Design, Test, R&D); Commercial (Sales, Marketing, Product Management) and Corporate Services (Finance, People, Legal, IT, Procurement & Supply Chain). This is therefore a role which will require someone who can thrive in a fast-paced, technical environment.

We are looking for someone to join us on a fixed-term contract (12 months) with the possibility of becoming a permanent position.
