Technical Recruiter

full-time Farmdrop London

Farmdrop is growing quickly and we are seeking our first Technical Recruiter to help us keep adding more of the same amazing, talented, motivated and passionate people that make this company such a great place to work for.

About Farmdrop

Farmdrop represents a new approach to food retailing whereby the benefits of cutting out the middlemen are shared between customers who enjoy fresher, healthier food at lower prices, and smaller scale producers who enjoy best-ever trading terms. Our mission is to Fix The Food Chain. We already deliver food around London, Bristol and Bath using our own fleet of electric vans and are scaling further afield in 2018. Our supporters include London foodies Gizzi Erskine and Tommi Miers, we work closely with the Soil Association and have been backed by the entrepreneurs behind Asos, Love Film, Zoopla, and Street Car. As of May 2017 we received a £7M Series A investment from Atomico. Farmdrop founder Ben Pugh has been shortlisted for the Bloomberg 2016 Innovation award for changing the environment.

Your Mission

Farmdrop’s first Technical Recruiter is tasked with attracting and hiring exceptional Tech and Engineering talent. You will influence, shape and organise recruiting priorities, develop interview processes and produce the best and most effective hiring strategies. You care deeply about providing realistic insights using data and analytics, as well as trusting your creative gut when boldness is required. You know what it takes to hire exceptional talent.

You will own the Tech hiring process. You will approach, engage and guide the most exceptional and motivated candidates through to offer stage. You will embody what it means to be Farmdrop, represent our vision and values and describe the future opportunities for progression. Your natural personality and emotional intelligence will prove crucial in developing lasting relationships with a diverse range of candidates.

You’ve got experience in recruiting Technical and Engineering talent. You know what sets a good candidate apart from a great one. Managing the candidate pipeline is something you do with your eyes closed. You will approach candidates by leveraging multiple channels such as referrals, online channels, events etc.

Your mission involves creating a best-in-class organisation to the envy of technology companies across the globe. You will be working in a high-intensity company where everybody’s throughput is paramount and the expectations are considerable. We’re looking for trailblazers with a unique and dedicated style who want to play a fundamental part in creating something extraordinary.

Other than being an ambassador of our values, we’re looking for someone who fits the following profile:

  • Experience within a technical recruitment/sourcing environment, tasked with hiring on behalf of ‘technology first’ organisations
  • In-house recruitment experience needed. Ideally Series A to C high growth Startups.
  • Exceptional written and verbal English - inviting, compelling, influential, thoughtful, articulate
  • High levels of emotional intelligence - able to interpret, anticipate, empathise and adjust in every scenario
  • Organised, methodical, timely, structured, efficient and precise
  • Natural networker, able to slowly and tactfully extract information
  • Article 50 will never prevent you from hiring the best in the world
  • Comfortable/appreciation for both technical and non-technical roles for the wider business
  • We pay a competitive salary, commensurate with experience. Its not what youd get working for a bank, but on the plus side... you wont be working for a bank :-)
  • You also get share options, plus lots of nice food. We have a kitchen and a nice big table we all fit around for free daily team lunches using Farmdrop food cooked by our chef.
  • We offer a free gym membership, cycle to work scheme, childcare vouchers, pension scheme and best of all - 20% off all Farmdrop food and drink
  • On top of this we love hanging out with each other and always have cool and unique socials, the last one involved making our very own vodka! Our annual Farm Camp is a big success too, 24 hours of eating, drinking and generally having lots of fun with each other, all in one of our own farmers marquees in the countryside.

Individual applicants only, please - no calls from agencies.
