As our first Talent Acquisition Lead you will be responsible for building a world-class recruiting lifecycle and employer brand.  You will partner with the business to develop strategies that will attract, identify and hire the best fit talent to support Showpo’s growth. 

You will be an integral part of the People and Culture team, becoming a true partner to the hiring managers to develop and grow our teams, branding the company as an employer of choice and serving as a brand ambassador.  You thrive in a dynamic, agile environment and bring your experience and a healthy disregard for how things “should” be done to produce results. Providing a best-in-class candidate experience is the reason you get out of bed in the morning. 

Let’s fast forward to your 1 year anniversary! By June 2022, these are some of the things you will have achieved. Don’t worry, you weren’t alone. You had the support of the Head of People & Culture, the Founder/CEO and the hiring managers.

You trained the hiring team on processes and now everyone is hiring to the same standard. We can easily assess candidates, give objective feedback, scale our process and coach new interviewers. 
  • You have spent time building trust and forming strong relationships with your hiring manager and are in a good rhythm ensuring they have access to all of the data which you talk about frequently and use to make hiring decisions.

  • You played a role in shaping Showpo’s employer brand, evolving it in line with the business and ensuring execution of the story and brand across all channels.
