You’ll deliver a high-touch recruitment service to our line managers across all teams, ensuring we deliver an exceptional candidate experience and bring passionate and capable people into the business.

Requirements


  • Proven track-record in high-volume digital and technology recruitment, either agency or in-house
  • Comfortable with boolean searching using an array of hiring sources, channels and techniques
  • High IQ and EQ - you’ll be stepping into a company full of bright and driven people, you’ll need to be able to build relationships but challenge thinking to improve results
  • Excellent communication skills and meticulous about the details, you’re able to capture all relevant information and keep managers constantly informed of progress
  • Exceptional written and verbal English - inviting, compelling, influential, thoughtful, articulate
  • Comfortable juggling competing priorities (with 5 to 15 open roles at any one time) whilst seeking to refine processes and add value to your customer
  • You care about results, but quality first - you’re comfortable running between interviews and handling multiple screening calls, but you never drop the bar for quality
  • Being an authentic relationship builder, strong collaborator and a genuine caring nature is a must for this People team



Nice to have

  • Experience with Workable ATS
  • Appreciation for both technical and non-technical roles for the wider business
  • You learn from past failures and are able to anticipate and act based on previous experiences given the warning signs

Benefits

Now we're talking. We have stylish offices near Old Street (we were founded in Italy after all) and a relaxed atmosphere where you'll get to work with a well-funded, passionate and friendly team. There are perks of course, to name a few we have 25 days holiday, options to buy/sell more, the regular snacks and drinks, parties and team nights out, yoga, meditation, UK pension scheme, beer and wine in the fridge (or sparkling water and celery if that's more your thing), special stuff on birthdays and life events and more. But the biggest perk of all is the opportunity to work with such a vibrant group of people building a product we all deeply care about.
