We are Australia’s leading executive-level human marketing & personal branding agency and we’re rapidly growing.
There is an exciting opportunity for a talented professional (with a background in Talent Acquisition, HR or Organisational Psychology) who cares about being at the peak of their game and who has knowledge of the Australian recruitment and selection market, to join our small, nimble and highly capable team in the capacity of a human marketing consultant.
WHO ARE YOU?
You’re a quick-witted and charismatic recruitment specialist who works relentlessly with executive clientele to build long-lasting relationships. You have a knack for being able to zone in on your client’s needs, asking the right questions, conceptualising the solution and offering strategic recruitment advice that takes executive career prospects through positioning in the market to the next level.
Warm, engaging and knowledgeable, with high levels of integrity, you are focused on delivery, are dedicated to your word, and flourish when surpassing expectations.
Most importantly you excel in a busy, “all hands on deck” environment; you love to solve problems and thrive in a mission-centred, professional yet informal start-up culture. Does this sound like you? If so, read on.
WHAT WILL YOU BE DOING?
For all you recruitment experts out there, this will be a slight role reversal, as your client here is the candidate in recruitment terms!
Reporting to the Founder and Director of the business with a dotted line to the managing consultant, you will be among a growing team of hand-picked recruitment experts who are thirsty to make a difference not only to our amazing, tenacious executive clientele, but to the bigger recruitment game.
With a background in providing solid recruitment advice, you have an inquisitive nature and a thirst to add value. These allow you to uncover unique traits, distinguishing our clients from their competition, and delivering results that allow them to excel within their already brilliant careers. This role requires part recruitment-brain and part marketing and communications aptitude – a rare talent and a delicate balance to strike.
Building strong trust-based relationships, you’ll get to know our clients personally, spending time discussing the ins and outs of their careers, understanding their personality, what makes them tick, their desired brand positioning and their ‘fit’ for specific roles. Once you understand this and their preferred career move, you’ll set a high level strategy and will lead the execution of their personal brand creation. The aim of this, of course, is for recruiters and hiring managers to see them as ‘employees of choice’, and you will partner with the client, and our digital and production teams to ensure this is achieved.
Gifted at seeing patterns when others see disparate information, you’re an avid researcher and use your analytical mind, your expertise in social media as well as deep know-how on the client side to help people shine. You understand what employers want.
Fluent in competency frameworks and behavioural interviewing you intuitively grasp what’s missing and also what’s required for clients to be deemed as suitable for roles, highlighting and articulating the presence or lack of transferrable skills.
WHAT DOES IT TAKE?
This role is for someone who can provide the highest levels of recruitment advice, can create an engaging, credible and professional client experience, and uses this talent to delight our clients – people who have decided to put their brilliant careers in our hands.
Being a start-up environment, our roles are multi-faceted in that you’ll be further developing your recruitment partnering and advice provision experience, and will be combining these with new skills ranging from organisational psychology, personal branding, as well as marketing and communications to pioneer a new niche. Our business is continuously evolving, so you need to be comfortable in such an environment.
The ability to provide credible advice at C-Level is vital, and you appreciate the complexities of working within a luxury brand where handcrafted excellence, true capability and expertise, client- centricity, individuality and remaining cutting-edge are the cornerstones of our success.
We value loyalty and will reward high performance coupled with dedication. If you care about personal growth and possess a genuine desire to contribute to an organisation that is helping improve people’s lives through the opportunities that are presented to them each and every day, then we encourage you to apply.
WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?
As a part of the team, you get to enjoy the benefits of being a part of a start-up that doesn’t settle for mediocrity.
You’ll be part of a fast-paced and rapidly evolving business, thriving at the cutting edge of a new niche, only just taking off in Australia. There’s no corporate bureaucracy, no politics – just highly driven people who are professional, down to earth, who love to create and get stuff done.
We trust our people to be accountable, and as such we provide the option of working from home once you’ve learned the ropes; you’ll be accountable for producing results, rather than clocking in and out. For us, as long as our clients’ needs are serviced and we exceed their expectations, we don’t mind where you sit. It’s about autonomy, not micromanagement.
Offering strategic advice to executives, you are a curious being, and people open up to you due to your warm, professional and intelligent approach. It’s also vital that you’re able to put your marketing hat on. This requires someone clever, sharp, analytical and savvy as you’ll often be synthesising large amounts of information in order to market clients in a way that truly makes a difference to their prospects. You must have a passion for writing as this forms an integral part of our business.
Your clients will be successful, intelligent, driven, high profile people and you’ll get to work on exciting and rewarding projects – if you love taking creative and innovative approaches to existing processes, a fulfilling role awaits you! We believe there is always a better way – and hence innovation is one of our core driving forces, constantly propelling us to think ahead of the game.
We will provide you with tools to help you raise your profile and build your online presence so that you have the best visibility possible – as we’re true advocates of the ‘future of work’.
Stock options are possible for the right people. We believe that work should be a holistic experience – a natural extension of who you are. If you love the work you do and want to work in an environment that allows you to be the very best that you can be, we’d be thrilled to hear from you.
