As a Recruiter at Wise, you’ll be responsible for hiring the best talent for one of our Business teams across EMEA. You’ll own talent management, helping these teams scale to enable Wise to achieve our mission – money without borders. 

You’ll be a key member of the recruitment team with a focus on delivering exceptional talent while keeping candidate and hiring manager experience front and centre of what you do.

Culture is everything to us at Wise and identifying, finding and selecting the best talent to support our highly collaborative and non-hierarchical culture is key. As a Recruiter you are vital to the overall success of Wise. The right person will have a data-driven mindset, excellent knowledge of talent management and understand how to partner effectively.

Your mission:

  • You’ll help us scale one of our Business teams across EMEA so we can help more customers save money using Wise
  • You’ll manage candidates end-to-end ensuring they receive the best possible experience in line with Wise values, even if they weren’t successful (you never know, the perfect role might come up later), and build a strong talent network locally and internationally
  • You’ll build and develop relationships with hiring teams, guiding them through and driving the process.
  • Collaborate with sourcers to understand the candidate market and engage passive talent 
  • Use data to support your hiring recommendations, as well as using it to retro processes, figure out the blockers to hiring, communicate how these can be overcome and continually optimise the process to make sure it is globally scalable
  • You’ll partner with hiring teams and other People teams (e.g. People Operations), to support various initiatives (e.g. referral programs, talent mapping, salary benchmarking, etc)

A bit about you: 

  • You have a track record of hiring exceptional talent, ideally in a non-tech function (e.g Marketing/Finance) while delivering the best partnering experience to candidates and hiring teams
  • You are an adaptable self-starter – someone who can use their own initiative to keep things running at pace and won’t wait for answers 
  • You are good with tooling and make data driven decisions by running reports, share updates and data on a regular basis with you hiring leads and peers
  • You are resilient and curious by nature – with a growth mindset because you know that failure is nothing but learning opportunities 
  • You are a creative problem solver. A tricky role won’t get you down. It’s a challenge that just spurs you on to find a new approach and try something new. 
  • You are a confident communicator and influencer, comfortable talking to people of any level, whether it’s in person, virtually or in writing. You understand how best to adapt your approach to your audience

Key Attributes:

  • Data Driven. You’re able to use data to build narratives and influence change. You can make evidence-based decisions and you’re able to use data to measure impact
  • Flexible & adaptable. You’re able to switch effectively between tasks and deal with constantly-changing workload and priorities. 
  • Initiative. You’re able to identify and seize opportunities. You can work with limited guidance to solve problems. 
  • Big Thinker. You understand the impact of your work on the success of the company. You’re able to create well thought-through action plans built around the big picture. You consider others and you’re aware of the impact your work has on other teams. You’re always thinking and planning for scalable and sustainable solutions

We pride ourselves on our transparency so we will let you know promptly where you stand with your application. While we assess candidates against agreed selection criteria, due to company policy we cannot provide specific feedback to our candidates about their interviews / test results. If you reach our final stage interviews but are not successful this time round, we could provide you with verbal feedback upon request.

We’re people without borders — without judgement or prejudice, too. We want to work with the best people, no matter their background. So if you’re passionate about learning new things and keen to join our mission, you’ll fit right in.

Also, where and what you studied isn’t important to us. If you’ve got great experience, the right skills for the role and you’re great at articulating your thinking, we’d like to hear from you.

And because we believe that diverse teams build better products, we’d especially love to hear from you if you’re from an under-represented demographic.
