Senior Talent Acquisition Partner - Business Recruiter

Job description

Yes, we know, it says Talent Acquisition Partner but that’s just because a badass miracle worker isn’t an official job title. You love to find the best and brightest Zivvy’s to join our teams, guiding these talents through the recruitment and hiring process and supporting Zivver’s growth whereby the candidate journey matters to you.

You want to try out new stuff. You wish you could get more creative in your ads, in your sourcing, in your interviews. You wish your ideas got tested and implemented. You want ownership and autonomy, transparency and authenticity. Awesome, this is exactly what we want too! We highly encourage you to use what makes you special and use that special talent to make a difference. No one else can get the job done like you do.

On top of that, you love to think along with growing solutions, being a real sparring partner to Hiring Managers, proactively joining the conversation. But wait, there’s more than sourcing. Together with your Talent Acquisition team, you will build on certain projects, including our referral program and employer branding. As a team, we’re constantly building and reinventing our recruitment machine and having fun at the same time. I guess that’s Zivver in a nutshell: we work hard and embrace the chaos of being a scale-up, while having one hell of a time together.”

Hot takes

  • You are like the little helper (‘lampje’) of Gyro Gearloos (‘Willie Wortel’) from Donald Duck. Always coming up with ideas and willing to help out.
