Change.org is seeking a Head of Global Talent Acquisition to help us build one of the world’s best companies to work for. As a key member of our executive team and reporting directly to the VP of People, the Head of Global Talent Acquisition will define and lead our strategy to attract a diverse group of incredible people from all over the world.

We are inspired by the power of business to drive social good, and believe that one of the key ways we do that is by being ambitious, creative and optimistic about what a workplace community can look like. Our team spans 18 countries, we operate like a high velocity tech company, have the culture of a social change organization, and recruit from an incredibly diverse talent pool (global activists, engineers, product experts). If that sounds like the kind of company you want to help build, then we want to have a conversation with you. 

As the Head of Global Talent Acquisition you will:

  • Lead the recruiting of leadership roles as needed. 
  • Develop and share recruiting analytics, and regularly use the insights to shift strategy and tactics. 
  • Lead the charge in championing a global culture focused on the importance of recruiting, in which every member of the team sees contributing to building our team as a fun, effective, and important use of their time. 
  • Be the executive recruiting voice for our recruiting priorities, partnering closely with other executives on strategy and supporting your team by unblocking whatever is slowing them down. 
  • Design programs which teach and empower hiring managers to develop their recruiting skills (eg excellent interviewing, retaining top candidates, decision making, closing, etc)
  • Design, implement and maintain scalable processes, tools, and systems necessary to support the recruiting function globally.

The ideal candidate will have the following skills and qualifications:

  • A strong, compelling vision for how to recruit incredible teams, and demonstrated success implementing such a vision. 
  • A successful track-record of creating and executing an effective recruiting strategy at a rapidly growing company (must have experience at a scaling tech company and/or social change organization).
  • Deep understanding of the best practices across the recruiting space, from tools, platforms, and systems to marketing tactics and employer brand. You constantly looking at external trends and come up with creative recruiting strategies.
