Our mission is to make the world a better place to work and to achieve this mission we need to attract the best people for Reward Gateway whilst delivering an exceptional candidate experience. Our goal is for Reward Gateway to become an employer of choice.

At Reward Gateway, we want all of our employees to feel comfortable bringing their passion, creativity and individuality to work. We value all cultures, backgrounds and experiences, as we truly believe that diversity drives innovation. As our new Head of Talent Acquisition, you will be doing exactly that, you will drive our recruitment diversity and inclusion strategy while taking ownership and responsibility to execute a best in class candidate experience.

Your Role

As our Head of Talent Acquisition, you will own recruitment for us globally, partnering with Hiring Managers and offering innovative and creative advice and solutions on how to attract and recruit the best talent available.

This is an international, commercial and strategic managerial role – but still, very much a position where you roll your sleeves up and take a hands-on approach to deliver world-class talent for the business, and experience for our candidates. 

You’ll oversee recruitment throughout the four countries we operate in - whilst managing your own stream of vacancies, and all of the recruitment tools we use including the ATS. 

The right candidate for this role will be pleased to hear that a focus on diversity and inclusion is going to be a big part of the remit. In this role, you will lead a range of initiatives to create and execute a strategy that enhances our brand – creating diverse talent pools and ensuring our recruitment processes are inclusive and accessible on all fronts. 

What you will bring:

*Proven track record at managerial level for Talent Acquisition (in-house or RPO environment, not agency) in a fast-paced environment

*A can-do attitude with the ability to work with stakeholders at all levels

*Experience in delivering best in class candidate experience

*Experience of successfully designing and executing diversity initiatives

*Experience in implementing & managing recruitment-related data and reporting applicant tracking systems, and direct sourcing tools

*Excellent communication skills with the ability to foster long-term relationships (with internal teams, external partners and candidates)

*Proven experience of automating and improving all aspects of the recruitment process

*We will be looking for you to have a strategic mindset, be personable in your interactions with all colleagues, have a high level of patience, be innovative in your solutions, and ambitious in your plans and delivery

*Good understanding of recruitment-related labour law, compliance and the GDPR

The interview process:

1. Video Interview with our interim Talent Acquisition Manager 

2. Video stakeholder interview with three stakeholders  from across the business

3. A written exercise to allow you to showcase your hiring skills by developing a hiring plan for one of our key roles

4.Final stage interview with the Group HR Director and two other senior Reward Gateway staff

We may ask for feedback during or after your application process so if that sounds good to you and you feel you are a good match to what we are looking for, we would love to hear from you!

Be comfortable. Be you.

At Reward Gateway, we want all of our employees to feel comfortable bringing their passion, creativity and individuality to work. We value all cultures, backgrounds and experiences, as we truly believe that diversity drives innovation. Express yourself, join our community and help us Make the World a Better Place to Work.
