We’re an executive personal branding agency looking for talented recruiters / HR professionals, who are passionate about the power of the written word and its ability to sell.
To succeed, you must GENUINELY be interested in people and leaders, delighting in their psychology and what makes them tick, marvelling at how they fit into what they do. This needs to be more than just a box-ticking job for you – you must have an innate desire to help shape and mould clients’ unique histories to fit their next career goal.
The role of Executive Personal Brand Builder / Writer within our organisation requires an analytical and critical thinker who can tie together often disparate layers of information by assessing it in the context of the bigger picture. It’s imperative that you can look at a problem from a variety of angles. A broad understanding of business concepts is also highly desirable. We market people – hence being highly tuned into the needs of the person doing the recruiting and the hiring manager – being able to put yourself in their shoes – is vital.
If you’re wired to build convincing arguments, and are often told that your talents have been wasted (i.e. you should have been a lawyer or a politician), this role will fit like a glove. The overarching context for this role is one of creating a successful outcome for the client – i.e. building the strongest business case that you can on their behalf. You need to love the idea of sculpting and moulding your client’s experience to suit their direction, overlaying and aligning who they are and what they do with their goal in order to secure buy in from the reader.
Those who work best in our culture love to learn and thrive in environments where they continuously push themselves to new heights. If you shriek at the sight of feedback – you will find our culture quite tough. We all provide feedback to one another – and are happy to receive it too! We genuinely care about our clients so won’t be afraid to say that something can be improved upon. And we want you to be OK with that too, so accountability, integrity and resilience are paramount. You must be an avid believer in there always being a better way, and importantly, be willing to find it.
We love what we do. We’re a tightly knit and high performing team, and working with us you will do some of your best work. It is important to note however that being a part of remote team is a little different to being part of a team where you see your colleagues day in and day out. There are no water cooler conversations, no office Ping-Pong table (though there are plenty of other perks). Therefore, you MUST be fulfilled when you feel EMPOWERED to do your very BEST WORK. Our top talent have a deep passion for their craft, and LOVE to work remotely so that they can focus on the work itself – because this is something that they revel in.
For the right person, there will be an opportunity to progress to consulting, leading and driving brand scoping sessions with our executive clientele and advising on strategy regarding their brand positioning – both online and offline. This role will enable you to build a strong foundation. You’ll learn the ropes, and understand what it is we do as well as how we do it, fusing marketing and branding with human resources and commercial acumen. Ample training and development will be provided to ensure that you succeed.
