We’re looking for a Talent Acquisition Specialist to join our growing team at Farewill on an initial 6 month fixed-term contract (with the possibility to go permanent).

This role is a unique opportunity for someone looking to be involved in the end-to-end recruitment process at a super exciting high-growth company and to change the way the world deals with death.

In the next 6 months you will:
Scale the team from 45 to 75.
Help drive the end-to-end recruitment activity for our operational teams (Customer Operations and Sales). This will include sourcing, screening, interview scheduling, through to managing offers and onboarding.
Develop a pool of engaged, passive candidates (across all teams in the business from junior to senior level) that allows us to have a constant funnel of great talent.
You will work closely with the Talent Lead and contribute to projects such as employer branding, D&I initiatives, and wider talent strategy.
Ensure we offer all candidates an amazing candidate experience.
Work closely with all of our managers and teams, keeping everyone involved and engaged in hiring.
Help us create a fun and unique culture, where the environment is empowering and rewarding

Hopefully, you’ll have some or all of the following:
Experience in hiring for a fast-growing team or startup as an internal recruiter, or a strong agency background.
Great sourcing skills, and knowledge of where to go for different types of hires.
Knowledge of what hiring process suits which role and what approach will deliver the best people
A passion for giving all candidates an amazing experience.
Understand the value of growing an employer brand - and come up with creative ideas of how to do this on social media and beyond.
Excellent written and spoken English, with the ability to make a connection with people from all backgrounds and walks of life
Experience managing multiple roles and pipelines at a fast pace.

If this sounds like what you’d love to be doing, we can’t wait to hear from you. If you’re not sure that you exactly fit the above criteria, get in touch anyway. Personality and attitude is just as important as experience!

What we offer in return:
Competitive salary and generous stock options
28 days of annual leave plus the usual public holidays
Work from home on Wednesdays, flexible start and end to your day
Regular off-site days and team lunches
Santander cycles membership!
A chance to make a meaningful contribution to people's lives and deaths

About Farewill:
At Farewill, we’re out to change the way the world deals with death. Helping people to take control, personally and financially, of what matters to them after they’re gone.

We launched our first product - our will-writing service - in December 2016, and since then we’ve grown to be the largest will-writer in the UK. We’ve recently launched our second product, Probate.

Our growth to date has been driven by an exceptional product (see our customer reviews) and key strategic partnerships. We’ve been featured in Forbes, The Times, The Guardian and on Radio 4 among others. We're also making waves in the charity world - with over £100 million raised for charities on our platform from gifts left in wills.

Our team:
We’re a creative, focused team who love what we do. We have backgrounds in design, technology, behavioural psychology, and management consultancy. We love to learn from each other and our customers, and grow together as a team.

Based in our lovely office in Haggerston, we’re backed by some of the best investors in Europe - from the founders of Transferwise and Zoopla, to Kindred Capital, SAATCHiNVEST, JamJar and DMGT.
This is an unusual, fascinating, and emotional area to work in – if you’re up for a big challenge we’d love to meet you.
