Job Description

Who we are

TransferWise was founded in 2011 with a clear mission: Money without borders - so people and businesses can send and receive any currency effortlessly, whenever, wherever.

Sure, the heart of what we do is international money transfer. And we’re committed to making it instant, convenient and fair for millions of people, all over the world. But we’re growing our other products and our teams at an exciting pace. And we’re looking for the very best to jump on board.


What it’s really like to work here

At TransferWise, we do things a bit differently. There’s no corporate nonsense, and no old-fashioned hierarchy. Instead, we work in dozens of self-sufficient, autonomous teams. Think of them like start-ups within a start-up.

Each team picks the problems they want to solve. So there’s no micro-management. No hiding behind fancy job titles. And no one telling you what to do. But you’ll get tons of guidance and plenty of support from talented, super-smart colleagues from all over TransferWise.

The way we work doesn’t suit everyone. But if freedom, autonomy, and life-affirming, head-scratching professional challenges rock your world, we could be a match made in heaven.


What will you be doing?

  • Finding out who we want to hire, and how to approach them

That’s not just posting a job advert or searching our database (although we would definitely expect you to be able to do these things). It’s also about identifying and exciting those candidates no one else will be reaching.

  • Direct sourcing for tricky Brand and Performance Marketing roles across global office locations

That includes new market launches where we don’t have a presence yet.

  • Getting to know our candidates right from the start 

You’ll be doing all initial screening calls and early interviews, making sure that the shortlist you give our teams includes only the best of the best. We’ll be relying on you to make sure that we exceed expectations every step of the way.

  • Regular reporting and updates to the hiring team

You’ll need to make sure that they have the information they need, know what their role is, and that everyone agrees to a clear attraction and interview process.

  • Putting together dream packages 

You’ll use your market knowledge to propose a dream offer package for every potential new hire.

  • Becoming an industry expert

Keeping up to date with market news, salary benchmarks and new recruitment technologies, whether from attending events and networking, or from your own independent research.

  • Acting as a partner to our broader HR teams

You don’t stop at offer stage but make sure that everything from contracts, background checks and onboarding happen like clockwork for your candidates.

  • Making sure TransferWise candidates get the best possible experience at all times


Who would this suit?

  • An agency or RPO recruitment consultant with a track record of success

Success not just measured in billings, but in candidate satisfaction and a network of trusted contacts. Extra in-house recruitment experience is a bonus.

  • A self starter

Someone who can use their own initiative to keep things running at pace, and doesn’t sit around waiting for answers to come to them.

  • A problem solver

A tricky niche role won’t get you down, it’s a challenge that spurs you on to find a new approach.

  • Someone highly adaptable

You’re comfortable dealing with ambiguity and an always-changing environment. We’d prefer it if you’ve worked in or recruited for a startup or high growth company before.

  • An intellectually curious challenger of the norm 

A thought provoker who isn’t afraid to test something new.

  • A confident communicator and influencer

You’re totally comfortable talking to people of any level, whether it’s in person, on the phone or in writing.

  • A perfectionist with a keen eye for detail and accuracy

Nothing slips past you.

  • Someone with a genuine interest in the Digital Marketing sector, and has recruited in this space before


Some important stuff we would like you to know

To meet our regulatory obligations as a licensed financial services company, TransferWise needs to take background checks on all new hires, which may include Criminal and Credit checks. Please discuss with the Recruiter if you have any concerns regarding this process.

We want to make sure that our recruitment process is accessible to everyone. So if you need any reasonable adjustments – at any point in the process – we’ll do our best to help. Just let us know what you need on your application form, or drop us an email. You might need a reasonable adjustment if you’ve got a disability. Or maybe you live overseas, and you’d prefer to meet us over Skype.
