Growth is the new norm and it's creating opportunities like never before, it’s exciting. 99designs is at the centre of this growth story and there’s no plans of slowing down, in fact, we plan to ramp up.  A critical component of the growth plan is the appointment of a Talent Experience Lead, a newly created position that will partner with 99ers and as they continue to scale.        

A little bit about 99designs

99designsis the world’s global creative platform that makes it easy for clients and designers to work together to create designs they love. Its mission is to champion creativity to create opportunities for people around the world. Founded in 2008, 99designs has grown from a small, online forum into a worldwide community of talented designers that is now the go-to solution for businesses, agencies, and individuals. 

A little more detail on the role

This is a hands-on, startup role, being the first internal Talent role at 99designs. Creating the foundations of the Talent function, you will be able to set the direction of the team that will grow and evolve into the future. 

As the Talent Experience Lead, you will work closely with the business to provide strategic recruitment support to hiring managers. You will take the lead on creating the strategy, developing processes, educating managers, being the 99d brand ambassador and hands-on recruiter across several departments to begin with. This role will work collaboratively with external partners to ensure that the best talent in the market is presented through proactive and innovative methods and talent pools.

A little bit more about you

This opportunity is perfectly suited to someone who has experience in a talent acquisition function, preferably in a fast growing technology environment. While the role will be hands-on at times, we’re looking for someone with experience and/or a keen interest in setting up the right processes and structures while working with the business to ensure that 99ers have the right support to scale. This will include assessing technology requirements (ATS), educating hiring managers on best practice and aligning with the right partners both locally and internationally. 

Why 99designs? 

As we continue to scale, we are committed to building an inclusive and diverse team that reflects the communities in which we operate. We want people to feel like they belong and can bring their whole selves to work. Our aim is to continue to foster a collaborative environment with a keen focus on innovation, growth and ownership. Below are just some of the things we do to support our people:

  • Career development and learning in whatever way suits you! Think paid R&D days, courses, formal and informal mentoring, conferences… however you learn best we’ve got you covered.
  • Culture of workplace flexibility and wellness. Study? Parent juggling? Everyone has different needs and the business will support you in the best way we can. Some people work remotely, some with flex start and finish times...the common thread is it’s all about your individual needs. 
  • Support for working parents. Paid parental leave policy for both primary and secondary carers, which can be accessed part time and is in addition to government payments.
  • Support for the community. In addition to 99nonprofits, 99designs provide one paid volunteer day a year for you to support a charity and the community as you see fit! 
  • We’re also a Proud Code Like a Girl internship partner, host of Girl Geek Academy hack days, & maintain popular open source projects, and support a range of other community groups. It’s in our DNA.
