Hawkwood are partnering with one of the most exciting AI start-ups who are hotly-tipped to secure unicorn status in the next couple of years 🦄.
Coming in to this year with just 20 employees, and now about to surpass the 100th employee milestone, they are expecting to increase their headcount to 500+ before the end of next year 😮.
Sustainability is at the heart of everything they do 🌳; our client has developed a very sophisticated piece of technology which is being used to reduce carbon emissions within built spaces, whilst also aiding businesses to be sustainable without compromising on their profits and employee experience.
We are currently looking for an experienced Director of Talent who will be overseeing a team of 15+ Recruiters to support the business in their growth from 100 to a headcount of 500+ within the next 12 months 🚀. You’ll be building an incredible hiring culture which is high performing, collaborative, energetic and inclusive at its core.
What we think you’ll need to be successful:
Experience in a hyper-growth, startup environment (scaling a startup from Series A upwards)
Ability to hire great people and continue to build an experienced Talent Acquisition team
Experience of growing both Tech and Commercial functions within a Saas or B2B business
Strong leadership skills and a background of managing, coaching and developing managers
Global hiring expertise across multiple locations
Ability to deal with the ambiguity that a growing start up brings
Owning and building the short and long term strategic vision for Talent Acquisition
Experience in all areas of hiring including candidate attraction, EVP, talent partnering and onboarding
Data driven, ensuring the team deliver against headcount plans as well as meet key metrics relating to quality, time and budget
Scrappiness and problem solving mindset to solve complex problems and bring robust solutions
Along with a very competitive base salary, our client also offers:
❤️ Feel good about your work: Our client is actively helping big companies reduce their environmental footprint. They also offset everyone’s carbon footprint.
🤸 They’re flexible: They encourage remote working and offer flexible working hours before COVID and they’ll keep that flexibility afterward.
📚 Learn and get promoted: Join them at the start of our journey – they’re growing quickly and believe in promoting from within. You can learn and grow your career there
🌟 Improve yourself: They give everyone a day per month to focus on personal development
🧑🏽🤝🧑🏽 Make friends: Everyone there is lovely
🏠 Added bonus: They give everyone options in the company.
🚀 Join a legitimately secure tech start-up: $15.5M funding round is great of course but more importantly they have real paying customers and a good, growing revenue stream.
