Job Description

Senior Recruiter 

Do you see people as more than a skillset? So do we.

You’ve got an eye for talent and an instinct for finding the right person for any job. We’ll trust your judgment and give you the freedom to recruit next-generation leaders, as you build on our reputation as an employer that values people and rewards talent.

About you

You understand what motivates people and drives businesses. You don’t believe in 'business as usual' – success comes from thinking differently. You’re an authentic and engaging storyteller with an enviable network built through cultivating professional relationships. You’re reciprocal and confident, thriving in a role where no two days are the same and you’re inspired to explore and develop creative strategies.

About the role

Our success is because of our people. Their ideas, originality and determination have taken us from an ambitious start-up to an international leader. But we won’t stay at the top by standing still. That’s why we’re looking for a recruiter who has experience in  at least one of the following business areas: Data & AI, Application & Infrastructure or Modern Workplace. We need you to bring our values and brand to life for candidates and help them to envision their future career with us.

As a Senior Recruiter, we’ll give you the power to shape our business, through the people you help us hire.

Working in partnership with our hiring managers, you’ll ensure that our core business areas maintain the title as top employers. We are a diverse community and proud of our inclusive culture, so you’ll also be supported by HR and external suppliers to make sure that everything we do follows Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) guidelines.

In this role, you will:

  • Act as a recruiter for your assigned business, managing multiple roles, strengthening client-recruitment relationships, and maintaining talent pipelines
  • Develop creative sourcing strategies and techniques for all assigned roles, with a focus on pivotal hard-to-fill positions
  • Collaborate and strategically align with global and regional recruitment leaders
  • Define new and/or update all job specifications, to meet the business climate, market and demand
  • Handle recruiting data integrity and tracking, for your allocated business area

Your skills

You’ve had plenty of success recruiting for technology-focused companies, and are ready for your next challenge. You quickly connect with people who have data & AI, application & infrastructure or modern workplace skill sets, and other hot tech skills because you’re as passionate about innovation as they are. Your strong communication and presentation skills, adaptability and collaborative working style stem from experience in a complex environment, such as consulting.

Naturally, you’re across all general recruiting principles and practices and you probably have a Bachelor's degree in HR, business or psychology, although we’ll also consider equivalent experience. We’d love it if you had certification in behavioural interviewing, as well as an in-depth understanding of negotiation and persuasions research. You have more than five years’ experience in recruitment.

Ideally, your experience includes:

  • End-to-end recruiting processes and programs
  • Exposure into at least one of the following business areas: Data & AI, Modern Workplace, Application & Infrastructure
  • Excellent presentation and communication skills, including active listening and storytelling
  • Knowledge of Microsoft technologies
  • Recruiting and collaborating across all career levels
  • Building strong internal and external relationships.
