The Opportunity

We're looking for a passionate Recruiting Team Lead to make an impact in how we nurture and attract candidates at Zenjob. If you're somebody who cares about candidate and hiring manager experience, takes a proactive approach to develop and grow your team, then we'd love to hear from you.

How You'll Contribute

  • Lead and develop the recruiting team that supports each team member's ongoing career development (you will be a coach and mentor to the team)
  • Define and implement recruitment best practices that enable us to raise the bar across all our hiring processes
  • Introduce ongoing training programs for the recruiting team, and all of our hiring partners across Zenjob
  • Evolve how we use data and insights to make better-informed hiring decisions
  • Establish Zenjob’s reputation as an organisation with a strong and authentic employer brand (internally & externally)
  • Represent Zenjob at external conferences, meetups, and events
  • Own all senior hiring processes, working with selected external agencies to manage the full recruiting cycle
  • Partner with the VP of People & Culture on all strategic workforce planning cycles 
  • Set and track the recruiting team budget including expenditure, investment and staffing your team.

About you:

You are action-orientated, have a bias to get things done to resolve problems and see things through to completion. You are passionate about building teams, developing others and leading by example. You build trust and take accountability for your actions, with your immediate team, key stakeholders and the wider-organisation. You question basic assumptions, break complex topics down into manageable pieces, applying critical and analytical thinking to the way you work. You have a growth mindset and are adaptable, ensuring those around you also develop to meet the ongoing challenges of their work. Finally, you take the time to celebrate your wins and have fun with your work.


If this like a challenge you're up for, then we'd love to hear from you.

Please send us your CV and, rather than attaching a standard cover letter, please outline (in one page) why this position is of interest to you, what you feel you can contribute to the team and what you're most passionate about (not only work-related - we want to find out more about you!).


We are looking forward to your application.

  • Flexible working hours

  • Learning opportunities

We're hungry to learn. As well as our internal Zenjob university platform, which enables us to exchange skills and expertise with one and other, we also encourage ongoing development opportunities such as our internal mentoring programme and external training. Additionally, we offer the opportunity to improve your language skills with in-house German and English lessons.


  • Dog friendly office 

Our Zennies have a soft spot for dogs; so much in fact, there is even a slack channel dedicated to Dogs of Zenjob.

  •  Keeping active

We believe moving is important. We encourage you to take a walk rather than rely on Slack and emails, get active with table tennis and for something to really get the blood pumping, we offer discounted Gym membership for FitX below us at our Berlin Headquarters.



  • Keeping fueled 

It's not only important what you do with your body, but what you put into it. Twice a week fresh fruit is delivered to the office and every Friday we also have our yummy company lunch. That said, the customary birthday cake or treats brought back from holiday are definitely hard to say no to.

At Zenjob, we want everyone to feel valued and comfortable to bring their true self to work every day. The collective team spirit is an important part of who we are, in fact, it’s one of the main things that people say they love about working at Zenjob. We see ourselves as being supportive, dependable, imaginative and ambitious. We enjoy working on interesting and challenging projects with autonomy, knowing that our work has a direct impact on our fast-growing and innovative startup.
