Talent Acquisition Lead for Product and Tech

Operations • Fully remote

You will be an integral part of the ‘recruitment team’ for the UK. You will be the subject matter expert for all things recruitment and be happy to work on recruitment/talent initiatives autonomously.

At YuLife we're transforming products once focused on death and illness into ones that inspire life and reward living — turning old-fashioned employee perks into life-enhancing benefits. We are explorers, dreamers and innovators. We’re on a journey to build the best platform in the world, but we can’t do it without people like you, leading the way. Forget the stereotypical tech companies of the past. Embrace the unconventional, exercise your imagination and help alter the future with YuLife. If this sounds like a mission you want to be part of then continue scrolling down.  

You’ll be looking after a variety of roles and will be comfortable recruiting different types and levels of roles from junior roles to Director roles. You will understand the subtleties of how to approach different roles with a variety of senior stakeholders. You will be able to keep recruitment moving whilst working on other projects (keeping multiple plates spinning).

You’ll have specific responsibility for:

  • Take full ownership of the recruitment process from direct sourcing and active headhunting through to offer.
  • 4 years minimum experience recruiting for Javascript engineers, front end and back end, product owners and data scientist.
  • Facilitate and actively onboard new employees, offering a personal touch.
  • Conduct interview screenings. All candidates being submitted to hiring managers will have had a ‘screen’ and HR interview conducted by yourself.
  • Hire the majority of roles through your own sourcing methods and referrals.
  • Continuously improve on how we report our metrics, look at Diversity & Inclusion.
  • Immerse yourself in the engagement and the full employee experience.
  • Ensure all HR transactional responsibilities are completed in real-time.
  • Answer employee queries relating to payroll, annual leave, policies / benefits and procedures. 

The process:

  1. Meet with Head of People - Cali Gold
