If you are the kind of person who likes to connect great people, and you’re willing to go the extra mile to find those great people, then we want to hear from you. We run a pretty rigorous recruitment process because we want to make sure that we are going to really enjoy working together. We need your help to run that recruitment process, as well as to help us to find great applicants and encourage them to apply. Our process involves psychometric testing; a couple of interviews; and a 4-6 hour work simulation that helps recruits to experience their work environment and team. Maybe you haven’t run this exact process before, but you think you’ve got the skills to pick it up quickly and you’re really keen to learn. Our process isn’t standard, and we are not looking for a standard recruiter. Maybe you have been a recruiter before, maybe not, but you get why we think this is important work, and you’re excited by the prospect of really understanding and getting to know our candidates.
We work with a growth mindset; experimenting, iterating, shifting and always looking for better ways to achieve our goals. The pace of change here is fast, so if you feel most comfortable when you really know what you’re doing, this probably isn’t the role for you. We certainly value expertise, but we update our practices quickly whenever we find a better way.
We use a lot of psychology theory in our daily work - trying to really understand what makes people tick so that we can help them grow; engineer the environment to be even better; and identify where things aren’t working so we can improve them. If you are interested in personality, social and organisational psychology (and you know the difference) then this might be just the gig for you. We’re looking for people who will be able to kick ass at work, have a great time doing it and keep pushing themselves to learn more. If you think you’d flourish here, and you’d really add something to the team, then please - join us!
You really want to find the people who will love it here, and who we will love working with. You know that finding these people can be tricky, and you’re prepared to put in the hard work to find just the right people. You’re also able to have difficult conversations with people - you know that it’s better to find out during the recruitment process that someone isn’t going to love it here (or we won’t love them), than to find out three months in. You’re prepared to take responsibility for the long term outcomes of your selection methods - and take to heart the idea of getting it right for both the candidates and for us.
You understand the nature of biases, motivated reasoning and incentives and you’re able to design processes to help minimise the problems these can cause. You want to give candidates a good experience during the recruitment process, and you want to make sure that we are rigorous about getting to know them, & their skills so that we can make an informed choice. You are also seeking to help candidates to make an informed choice about working with us - you know that not everyone will love our environment, and you want to help them make sure that they will.
This is a full-time position located at our Fitzroy office, with occasional travel to our Bells Beach office. We would actively consider candidates wanting to work part-time hours, who are prepared to work five days a week. Parents returning to work are very welcome.
