For our HR team we are looking for an innovative and fun Talent Acquisition specialist to lead our resourcing and recruitment function.

The position is based in Helsinki and will initially be for the duration of the maternity leave (approximately 1 year, preferred start date in September).

The Talent Acquisition Specialist oversees recruitment for all our current office locations in Helsinki, Oslo, Lodz, Copenhagen, Stockholm as well as our newest office in London. The role will also include responsibility for acting as a recruitment lead for our possible future office locations, so ideally, we look for someone who has not only strong in-house, multi-office recruiter experience but also possesses experience in setting up new office locations as a recruiter.

Additionally, you will lead our internal job market and develop and promote the internal career opportunities within the company. Networking, managing third party recruitment partners, building a strong employer image and supporting and mentoring managers in all recruitment activities are all within the scope of the role. Due to the continuous growth, the prospect is for the successful candidate to potentially develop into an HR Business Partner role after the maternity cover with a continuous focus on HR development activities.

  • Innovative, passionate ideas on recruitment processes and solutions
    Previous experience within HR development activities and coaching managers
  • Curious mind – open to learn new and commitment to enabling others to learn as well

What we provide:

  • Super interesting working environment
  • Great, fun team who are true professionals in what they do
  • Growth company committed to learning and involving all team members
  • International company, ability to work with multicultural teams
  • Ability to work from home if needed.


We are looking for the successful candidate to start in September 2019.
