    • Job Field Human Resources / HR&nbsp

    About the Role

    • This role will oversee Talent Acquisition of the launch phase of our new programmes globally; and so has an incredible scope. Reporting directly into both Partnership Launch and Talent Acquisition leadership, you will collaborate closely with key global stakeholders, and lead hiring for our new launches.
    • This role involves close collaboration with group and department leads, VP’s, territory MDs, and our C-suite to ensure a shared understanding of the strategy and value proposition amongst internal stakeholders and external prospects. You’ll be supported by one in-house Talent Acquisition Manager, and will functionally manage the new Talent Acquisition Managers recruited for our new programme launches, during the high-growth initial phase.
    • You’re a highly seasoned talent acquisition and search lead, with advanced sourcing, negotiation and talent attraction abilities, an extremely effective communicator, both written and verbal, and are energized by interacting with people, building relationships, and networking. These things come naturally to you and are what you crave in your working life.
    • A keen sense of ownership, speedy execution, scrappiness and innovation is a must. You’ll be a champion of executive talent acquisition, someone who truly wants to elevate and deliver for the function. You’re someone with a strong ability to multi-task and take ownership of the current talent acquisition process from the get-go.
    • You must be comfortable evaluating processes and creating new ones, thriving in idea generation and execution. You will be able to thrive as a hands-on and dynamic and talent acquisition leader, capable of thinking strategically, building talent networks, and overseeing hiring for high-growth areas.
    • You’ll be equally comfortable as a senior individual contributor as well as a leader overseeing highly-critical recruitment globally. This is a highly impactful and hands-on role, and the Talent Acquisition’s spearhead across sourcing, hiring strategy and delivery for NewGlobe’s new launches globally.

    What You Will Do

    • Carry out executive searches and headhunt for key leadership positions, particularly in Africa and Asia.
    • Mentor, coach and lead talent acquisition managers across various geographies; advancing their capability to attract, pipeline, engage and assess candidates more effectively, bringing in and nurturing the strongest talent possible, not just recruit.
    • Oversee the hiring and onboarding of Talent Acquisition Manager you hire for each new programme – enabling them to be fully set up and empowered, as you transition to launching other new programmes.
    • Oversee searches full-lifecycle for a range of roles, primarily through your own efforts but also oversight of any contingent resources / external recruiters as needed. This will cover a range of high-growth programmes globally each year.
    • Create and deploy various hiring strategies and initiatives – around sourcing and hiring practices, talent attraction, employer branding, outreach and partnership programs and internships.
    • Champion best practices of talent acquisition, embody these and oversee the same across your Talent Acquisition teams, across a very high level usage of systems, processes and hiring quality.
    • Review current processes objectively, and relentlessly focus on iteration – across quality of hire, time to hire and experience.
    • Guide senior stakeholders and hiring groups by providing valuable insight and hiring and employment data.

    What You Should Have

    • Bilingual French and English language proficiency.
    • Bachelor’s degree ideally with superior academic performance.
    • Fluency in both French and English.
    • 6+ years within Talent Acquisition; including experience within a recruiting leadership capacity, we particularly value experience in extreme growth situations.
    • A track record of sourcing and hiring for a range of locations globally. Leadership of hiring across regions, and any exposure working and living abroad is preferred.
    • Prior experience within a fast-paced, metric driven Talent Acquisition organization (in-house / corporate or agency), as well as in designing and implementing talent acquisition solutions encompassing talent attraction and outreach programmes to build for longer-term talent pipeline.
    • Extensive headhunting / direct recruitment experience, particularly with building diverse teams. Advanced level of Boolean / active sourcing abilities, able to leverage a wide range of talent mapping, sourcing, engagement and talent attraction channels.
    • Curiosity, grit and a relentless spirit to uncover talent across Africa, Asia and globally.
    • Experience with establishing and maintaining C-level relationships, internally and externally, demonstrating the ability to work effectively across internal and external organizations.
    • Willingness and excitement to travel significantly when Partnership Launch work arises – preferably around four to six weeks when setting up a new programme and hiring and onboarding a new Talent Acquisition Manager. Expect up to 50% travel across new launches, likely in Africa and Asia.
