Work & Co (work.co) defines and launches the world's most successful digital products and services. With offices in the United States, Brazil and Europe, we've become the go-to partner for IKEA, Lyft, Google, Apple, Epic Games, Mailchimp, Aesop, Etsy, ALDO and many other globally respected companies.

Forrester Research calls our approach “a model to follow.”
Team planning at Work & Co is vital to our overall employee experience and company success. We’re looking for a Resource Manager/Recruiter who has a keen interest in helping create the best teams for our exciting roster of clients. This person will both work across disciplines to find remarkable candidates and usher them through our interview process as well as staff projects with teams that bring the perfect skill sets, experience, and perspectives. Equally important, this person will match employees with teams that fit employees’ interests and goals. By pairing team members with dynamic, challenging projects, employees continue to grow within their craft and develop within the company. This role has an active hand in managing other critical parts of the team experience, like onboarding, team seating, and playing point for addressing ongoing team-related questions.
Our ideal candidate has a passion for growing people and building teams. They have experience in the digital world and a solid understanding of the project lifecycle. They are an exceptional communicator and bring a desire to foster each employee’s unique talents and goals.
The role will be based in our Copenhagen office.

- Work with the larger talent team to manage workflow for new hires and retention
