Your impact 💥

Within our rapidly growing company we are expanding our recruitment team to make sure we are equipped to hire the best talent in the market, to contribute to our company mission: “To help people with housing, anywhere!”. While anticipating this need, we are looking to include a Recruitment Team Lead, who can take on the exciting challenge ahead!

As our Recruitment Team Lead, you will make sure that both our two technical recruiters, two commercial recruiters and a recruitment intern collaborate effectively to fulfill the hiring needs of our organisation.. You are an inspiring leader who is not only focussed on optimization of the recruitment function and coaching, but will also take part in the actual recruitment that includes source & interviewing.

When you start within the role of team lead, the optimization process will start with checking and aligning our basics on practical recruitment within the team and developing colleagues where needed. A team of diverse hiring managers will also be eager to learn from you and it’s up to you to set the hiring culture & roll out the recruitment strategy together with the Head of Human Resources. As recruitment is a part of the Human Resources Team, you will work closely together to make sure that your hires are embedded within the organization and the people operations are as effective as can be. Your creative ideas are welcome and always valued.

Employer branding and campus recruitment will be one of your key projects to start with. You are able to establish our employer brand, make a branding plan and roll out our employer brand to level up our image with reality. This way you will enable the recruitment team to select & hire talent all over the world from our headquarters in Rotterdam. While working on key projects, you are a leader that also includes the team members in the process, let them take part (learn) and values their ideas. 

Because we are expanding throughout Europe, you know how to handle multicultural communications and are used to working in an international environment.
