Hello, Recruitment Leaders!

Do you love all things recruitment? Love leading a team to success in finding great candidates for great clients?

Have you got experience leading and scaling a recruitment function? Want a real opportunity to drive massive growth at a fun remote-focused recruitment business?

Then read on, because this might just be for you.

Warning! There’s lots of detail here to help you to get to know us, and what we’re looking for - If you are interested in this role, it’s important for us that you go through it so you know exactly what to expect.

If detail isn’t for you then no worries, you’re not for us.

I’m Noel, CEO and Owner of JobRack and you can ‘meet’ me in the short video linked below.

I want to work with exceptional people on my team.

Are you exceptional?

What makes you stand out? What are you passionate about?
Do you love all things recruitment? Are you a leader? A problem solver?

Are you resourceful and data-driven?

Do you smile often? Have an up-beat “can do” attitude?

We want to see this in your application, we want (and need) to get to know you.

We are looking for a Head of Recruitment specifically with these requirements:

  • Proven experience in a Head of Recruitment or similar role.
  • Minimum of 5+ years experience in high-volume (and high quality) recruiting.
  • Demonstrable experience in leading, managing and scaling a team engaged in full-cycle recruiting.
  • Excellent communication skills, with the ability to build and maintain long-term relationships with internal teams, and external partners.
  • Experience with client relationships and external hiring.
  • Strong understanding of sourcing techniques and tools, ideally in remote-focused recruiting.
  • Hands-on experience with applicant tracking systems, including selection and implementation.
  • Proficiency in using software, systems and automation for efficient recruitment.

We're a bit different from other recruitment companies.

  • We help our clients hire real team members.
  • We offer serious remote jobs for serious remote workers.
  • We find people that our clients can trust and build their business around.

We guarantee our clients that we'll find someone they're 'thrilled to hire’.

It's challenging, but we like it that way.

We've been helping people from Eastern Europe get great remote jobs since 2015, and we've recently added South Africa to the mix too.

We hire for all kinds of roles from software developers to marketing specialists, and operations managers to executive assistants, and many more.

We are looking for a driven Head of Recruitment who is comfortable taking ownership of all aspects of our client recruitment - leading, developing and expanding our recruitment team to build a scalable capability that wows our clients and candidates.

Your big goal will be to drive us from our current level of 20 positions per month to 100+ positions filled each month.

No sales required! Our recruiters focus on doing what they do best - recruiting. They don’t need to find new clients or do sales calls. You won’t either.

Why are we hiring for this role?

What got us here won't get us there. It's a cliché, but it's true. We've achieved some great things since we launched our hiring service three years ago:

  • We've proven that there's demand for our service.
  • We've found the clients who we like to work with (and some that we don't).
  • We've found the roles that we really excel at.
  • We've transformed businesses through the candidates we've found, and our clients are true raving fans who love working with us.
  • We’ve trialled a range of ways of working with various systems and software along the way (with more still to come!).

We're on a mission to help a lot more of these clients hire a lot more team members, so we need to grow our recruitment capability. That's where you come in - if you are up for a big challenge!

The role of Head of Recruitment at JobRack

You will own and lead all aspects of recruitment for JobRack clients and candidates.

You'll lead, develop, and grow our recruitment systems and team to ensure we continue to focus on high quality results for our clients, while also significantly increasing the number of roles we fill each month (from 20 to 100+ per month).

You'll need to be able to demonstrate that you have relevant experience scaling a recruitment function to a similar level.
