Startup Europe. Grown up reporting
We’re looking for a passionate and experienced talent manager, who will help us to continuously raise the bar on our hiring processes. We are looking for someone committed to diversity and inclusion to play a vital role in supporting our ambitious growth strategy as we look to double the size of the team. You’ll have a strong background in recruitment, refining HR processes and focusing on people operations (preferably in a high-growth startup).
Sifted is a new media and data platform reporting on the world of technology and startups in Europe, backed by the Financial Times. In two years we’ve become known for our high-quality journalism and fresh viewpoints, and a must-read for many founders, investors and people working in startups across the continent.
We have grown from a standing start to 600,000 monthly unique visitors, and over 80,000 newsletter subscribers.
We’re now a team of around 50 people, made up of full time and part time, employees and contractors, across the UK and various European countries — and we’re growing fast.
Our team of reporters, based across Europe, aren’t chasing after the latest funding announcements or product releases; plenty of other sites have got that covered. We are telling the stories that should be told — big startup trends, compelling company profiles and the everyday lessons that come from growing a business and messing up along the way. And our rapidly expanding commercial, tech, marketing and intelligence teams are ensuring that we can continue to deliver an ever broader range of products and services to as wide an audience as possible.
You will be a key member of the team working directly with the chief of staff. The main focus of the role is on partnering with senior managers across the business in order to understand their recruitment requirements and successfully find, hire and onboard the right people to support Sifted’s future growth.
We have a small-company mindset, but big company goals, and can draw on many of the strengths and benefits of a world-respected brand, the Financial Times. We’re friendly, hard-working and passionate about what we do. We have a flat structure, collaborate across disciplines, and everyone has impact across many areas of the business. We value feedback, honesty and clear communication.
London (although we are open to semi-remote applicants — ie. people who could travel in 2-3 days per week).
Please send your CV and an email explaining why you’d like to apply and why you think you’d be a good fit for this role to Kathryn at [email protected]. Please attach a CV.
