Recruiter (in-house or freelance)
Welcome to Lepaya
Our mission is to enable professionals across the globe to be more effective in their work and enjoy more happiness in life. Did you know that 85% of your effectiveness at work is determined by soft skills? To deliver on our mission, we deliver high impact soft skill training. Our training platform provides professionals with the more modern tools to develop themselves: online where possible, offline or face-to-face where that has more impact.
We launched early 2018 and, the success of our approach is demonstrated by our rapidly expanding client-base - ranging from the most innovative and fast-growing scale-ups such as Bynder and Picnic, to global corporates such as ING, and L’Oreal.
We are now fully committed to rapid growth and international expansion, supported by a Q2’20 €5 mln Series A investment, which makes it the perfect time to step in. The new Recruiter has the opportunity to work in a dynamic and entrepreneurial environment, where he/she plays a central role in achieving ambitious growth.
A word on diversity: at Lepaya, all we’re askin’ is a little respect! To us, it doesn’t matter where you were born, what you believe in, how old you are, what you look like, or who you love. We believe that different perspectives and backgrounds will actually lift Lepaya to new heights and increase our power of thinking. Our passion is to build a strong culture with respect for each other’s unique experiences, backgrounds, perspectives and skills. Join us, as there is a place for you here!
Why do we need you?
We are expanding at an accelerating pace. To date, we have around ~75 employees, and we expect that to grow to 100+ by the end of the year. However, the bulk of the hiring we expect to require in the middle of the year.
We are looking for a broad range of functions and levels of expertise: from Sales Development Representatives to Senior Full Stack Developers, and from Digital Learning Leads, Heads of Finance to Customer Insights Analysts. And while the majority of our team is based in Amsterdam, we are building up our commercial teams in Germany in Sweden - and are sourcing tech talent from all over the world.
As a scale-up, we do not yet have the name recognition that there is massive inflow for all positions. For some roles, you will be required to manage the applications and the process tightly, but for some roles we would surely expect you to tap into your network, open up LinkedIn and start sourcing.
To ensure we not only grow in quantity, but attract the triple-A talent that is required to make the next step in all our positions, we are looking for a recruiter that is used to a fast-past scale-up environment, is experienced with a variety of functions and types of stakeholders, and gets motivated by delivering results.
Specifically, what would we expect you to deliver over the next ~6-12 months?
Fill ~30 positions;
Work with stakeholders / hiring managers on defining roles, their requirements and the interview process per role;
Manage the end-to-end hiring process for these roles (from sourcing to signing contracts);
Employ (creative) sourcing strategies where relevant;
Be the spokesperson and face of Lepaya to prospective hires, and manage their process in a way that leaves behind a positive impression of the company - irrespective of the outcome.
Work on the Employer Value proposition - to ensure we increasingly attract more talent.
In an ideal world, who would you be?
You are an experienced (in-house) recruiter in a rapid-paced, scale-up environment;
You have experience with sourcing and hiring for both commercial and technology positions;
You have knowledge of international relocation processes (or are eager and willing to learn) and hiring internationally (notably Germany/Sweden);
You communicate well with prospective hires and internal stakeholders;
You are fluent in Duch and English, German is a pre.
We value capabilities over formal experience, yet what would we love to see on your resume?
2-3+ years of inhouse recruiting experience in a fast-paced environment
And of course, next to the challenge we offer, why is it amazing to work for Lepaya?
You will join an inspiring and dynamic environment;
You will participate in Lepaya’s own training curriculum;
We offer accelerated personal growth and career opportunities;
We offer an attractive compensation package;
You will report directly to one of our founders.
Note: we are both open for freelancers and in-house recruiters, no agencies. Package may differ given contract type.
