Job Description

Talent Acquisition is a strategic role in Silverfin's growth, it shapes the company culture, and identifies the talent we need to be successful. We're growing internationally and exponentially, and as Recruiter you will have a lot on your plate. You will be designing and executing recruiting strategies that support many functions, e.g. Development, Sales, Marketing, etc...
We believe diversity is an asset. We don't always hire the most obvious candidate. We find that the right person for the job might sometimes not know this herself.
