Ideally you will also have over two years’ in-house recruitment and/or more general human resources experience at a fast growth organisation, where you contributed to the establishment of recruitment and HR systems and processes.

• Deploying and administering a recruitment technology platform and maintain candidate pipelines
• Maintaining data and reports to support effective recruitment and commercial decision making
• Fostering the RateSetter culture by organising and implementing programs, events and initiatives that keep our team members engaged, motivated and focused
• Understanding the competitive landscape for various employment positions, and evaluating market trends to inform compensation and benefit offerings
• Where required, working with external immigration attorneys to manage the employment visa process

To be successful in this role you will have:
• Excellent interpersonal and communication skills
• Demonstrated strong performance as an agency recruitment specialist
• Experience at a high growth business where you have implemented recruitment and/or HR platforms
• Excellent analytical skills, coupled with sound judgement
• Superb organisation and attention to detail
• The ability to work autonomously, think on your feet and work in an evolving work environment dealing with complex enquiries

You can expect from us:
• A competitive remuneration package
• A platform to perform, with excellent opportunities for professional development as we grow
• The chance to work with a collegial, fast growing team of talented, highly motivated professionals
• An open culture where we share our results and your input is valued
