Working with the Global Head of Talent Acquisition, you’ll also help drive operational improvements as well as develop our team.
Some of the key things you will do each day include

What you will bring with you
You’ll have an excellent grasp of recruitment operations across the full hiring lifecycle and bring experience of working within a recruiting environment where day to day delivery has been optimized for consistency, experience, and outcomes – we really value this experience and the ideas you can bring as we move forward with our own transformation. You don’t need full global experience but an appreciation of regional variations, cultural awareness with a passion for creating a best practice approach for all is essential.
You’ll have had some previous accountability for a small number of recruiters (we have a global team of 6), and most importantly you’ll need to be comfortable with a player-coach role where you will spend up to 70% of your time handling your own requisition workload. You’ll be someone who naturally leads by example – setting the standard in how roles are managed from start to finish, and who holds others accountable for matching these standards.
You’ll be a strong relationship builder, collaborating across our business and with the function to create a clear understanding of and commitment to excellence in day-to-day recruiting, and able to leverage these relationships to quickly unblock operational issues that impact our ability to recruit the most talented people.

You’ll also get to work in a fun Global Talent team who support and collaborate strongly each day and who believe in the importance of having fun at work. You’ll also can really help shape how we recruit and gain new recruiting skills and experience along the way.
