HR & Recruitment Director

Job description

⚠️ Important ⚠️: Although this is a fully remote role, we only accept candidates that are within 2 hours of CET (Central European Timezone). Applying outside of that is a waste of your (and our) time. 
Prezly is looking for a HR Director to join our team. We’ve been slowly/steadily growing to a 20 person team and now want to grow to a 30 person team. That is why we want to invest in creating a healthy company culture and install/improve all our processes around HR (hiring, recruitment, onboarding, personal objectives, work/life balance, personal growth).

About the role

We know that the single most important resource is our people. We are looking for our first and foundational HR team member to join our core leadership team and help us ensure that our highest priority resource is taken care of from employee onboarding through multiple years of tenure with us.

We want to be sure that as we grow our team, we scale with purpose, and that the experience of our people is always at the forefront. Reporting directly to our co-founders, you’ll act as a strategic thought partner for the business as a whole.

Another part of the role is to own the recruitment process from sourcing candidates, optimising the hiring process to taking an active role in hiring the right people for the job.

Covid-19 and Travel
As international borders reopen, we’re thrilled to be able to start planning in-person retreats and visits to our HQ.

We are happy to cover the costs for any covid tests you need to take to comply with travel regulations when attending retreats or other team meetings, which will vary depending on things like your country of residence, vaccination status and so on.
