Talent Acquisition Lead

Startup hiring can be as interesting as it is challenging. At the centre of a startup’s success is its people. As a growing and innovative startup, identifying and attracting good talent and ensuring culture fit is a critical function. Talent Acquisition is a role like none other - defining the personality of the company and influencing its success on the path to excellence.

We are looking for a Talent Acquisition Lead with at least 3 years of work experience to oversee our full-cycle recruiting. Ideally you will also have experience with talent planning and pipelining, or experience in handling bulk recruiting end-to-end.

Training and managing frontline Talent Acquisition Specialists is also a requisite for this role. You will also have the required exposure to recruiting tools and processes to be able to develop recruiting practices at CoinedOne to meet excellent standards.

Additionally, you may also oversee general human resource management, ensuring we have a happy and productive workplace where everyone works to realize our established mission and objectives. 

Talent Acquisition responsibilities include sourcing candidates through various channels, planning interview and selection procedures and hosting or participating in career events. To be successful in this role, you should be able to develop long-term recruiting strategies and nurture trusting relationships with potential candidates and hires.

If you enjoy talking to people to assess their abilities and aspirations, have a knack for convincing them and have the drive to help build vibrant teams with the right blend of skills, this role could be for you. Ultimately, you will create strong talent pipelines for our company’s current and future hiring needs and implement recruiting strategies and initiatives aligned with the overall business strategy of the company.
