We are looking for passionate recruiters to join our team to lead and support delivery of our RightHire services to our clients. You will lead multiple client projects every quarter, from the first meetings where we understand the business model, the organizational culture and the job to hire for, through implementation (sourcing and screening) all the way to supporting successful onboarding and final probation review with the hiring manager and their new employee.
By having you on board, we want to ensure that ambitious and exciting but potential not well-known organizations attract the best talent and accelerate the roll-out of innovative onboarding practices in Kenya and East Africa. This role is ideal for you if you love the culture and dynamics of small and growing organizations and if you want your creative spirit and people skills to matter!
While all Associates will lead their own projects, Senior Recruitment Associates are involved in executive searches, while also leading others on projects.
Who we are looking for:
You are excited about connecting people with the bigger picture of their organizations, you believe that workplaces should be both effective and healthy, and you want to grow your career in the human capital space.
You are intellectually curious, question things, are okay with being proven wrong, and love using your brain to analyze and strategize around difficult questions.
You are a fast and self-driven learner.
You are proud of your ability to overcome obstacles fast and to put in the hard work to get to your end goal.
You express yourself well in writing and via phone.
You have 2+ years of experience in either: (for Senior Associates: 4+ years)
a client or project oriented environment where you have gained skills that are transferable to this role, or
talent recruitment, headhunting, creating and implementing HR processes and policies
You have a track record of executing tasks in a timely manner and are good at meeting deadlines.
You have a great eye for detail, making documents look fantastic with excellent knowledge of English, grammar and style
You are happy to organize your work independently; you are resourceful and can create lots of value with small budgets and little time
You are able to add value in fast-changing environments where things are uncertain and you have to figure things out.
You easily navigate google documents and spreadsheets.
Your responsibilities will include
Understand the client's realities in-depth: Their business or impact model, their growth goals, their current team and structure, and team related needs and pains.
Understand the big picture and the nitty gritties of the position to hire for, clearly map out the responsibilities of the role, and derive the required talent profile and criteria.
Conduct market research about the role and salary budget and advise the sales team on the feasibility and timelines of the hiring project.
Design and lead the implementation of different recruitment tools and approaches to attract great candidates to the position.
Actively build pipeline of candidates through creative and smart headhunting approaches:
