Talent Associate

Job description

Wefarm, the world’s largest farmer-to-farmer digital network, enables farmers to connect with each other and key partners over SMS to solve problems, share ideas, obtain vital products and services, and spread innovation, through utilising the latest machine learning technology.


Small-scale agriculture is the biggest industry on earth, with more than a billion farmers globally supplying 70% of the world's food and commodities, yet remaining digitally unconnected. Until Wefarm, no other had built a digital platform for these farmers to share their vital insights, without having to go online!


Since our launch in 2015 we have grown to serve 1.9 million farmers across the world, who share more than 30,000 Qs & As per day. Wefarm has recently secured $13 million in Series A funding from some of the world’s leading VCs, including True Ventures in Silicon Valley, and we are looking to add to a world-class team based across London, Nairobi, Kampala and Dar-es-Salaam.


Join us and be a part of our mission to build an ecosystem for global agriculture, with the farmer at the centre!

The role

Our people are the heart of our culture and the key to the success of our business. As we grow we want Wefarm to continue to be a home for passionate and mission-driven talent - to help them push boundaries, be bold, feel empowered, and build a meaningful and world-changing business through collaboration.


We are looking for a recruiter to join our Operations Team in London to support our rapid Series A growth. You will play a leading role in creatively identifying and engaging top talent, and improving our recruiting process as we continue to scale.

You will:

  • Manage the full-cycle recruiting process in partnership with hiring managers
  • Research, find and engage with potential candidates
  • Screen resumes and hold phone interviews candidates to determine fit
  • Regularly track and analyze pipeline and performance data to share with internal stakeholders
  • Provide advice and coaching to hiring managers and interviewers
  • Recommend and drive improvements to enhance our candidate experience

Requirements

You are excited about Wefarm and our mission, looking to take the next step in your career. You thrive in a fast-paced environment and the unpredictability and ambiguity of working for a start-up. More specifically you will have:


  • 2-3 years experience in an agency or in-house recruitment role
  • Recruited across a variety of functions and at every level from entry to senior-level hires
  • Strong interpersonal skills
  • You know how to prioritize tasks and manage your time effectively
  • A proactive nature and a solution-focused mindset
  • Willingness to learn and upskill yourself on different ways of finding the greatest talent across
  • Ideally have experience recruiting for rapidly growing, venture-backed tech startups.


Rewards package and remuneration

The total rewards package and remuneration will be based on experience and potential, but is highly competitive and will include share options. We believe in our team being not only the executors of Wefarm’s visions but the makers and owners of it!


As a global business, travel is essential to who we are, and will be a perk of the job. We also host an annual whole company get together (Wecamp), previously held in Kenya and Uganda. In addition, we have a generous pension package, flexible working environment (within reason of course!), and we value spending time together - boarding the weekly lunch train, sharing some drinks on a Friday and frequent social events throughout the year.


We will review applicants on an ongoing basis. Due to the high number of applicants we will, unfortunately, only be able to respond to shortlisted candidates.
