About the job

As our new Recruitment Manager, you will make sure that we have onboarded 100+ new qualified German Editors by the end of 2021! 🚀 

How? By designing a recruitment strategy on how to identify, attract, and onboard (qualify) new editors effectively. You are able to use your skills and experience to develop a winning plan for attracting and retaining talent to grow Scribbr’s editor community. 

By successfully taking on this challenge, you will set the basis for editor recruitment for all of our Proofreading and Editing languages and eagerly take the lead in developing Scribbr's own employer brand.


  • Planning and executing short, medium and long term Editor recruitment
  • Attract top freelance talent - your goal?  90% of the applicants in the Scribbr Academy will complete it and become qualified to be a Scribbr editor
  • Improve the Editor qualification process (Scribbr Academy) in close collaboration with the Quality Managers of the respective languages
  • Develop a long term recruitment strategy adapted to busy periods and freelance culture per language, ensuring that we have enough editing capacity to stay online during peaks

Employer Branding

  • Design a growth path for editors in close collaboration with the Quality and Community Management teams
  • Develop an Employer Value Proposition (EVP), reflecting benefits of working for Scribbr and the rewards offered to freelance editors
  • Embed the developed brand strategy in everything Scribbr does, aligning the brand with the business priorities, and existing marketing strategies
  • Coordinate employer branding activities and managing our employer reputation via different channels (e.g. Social Media, Glassdoor, etc.)

In this role, you will identify opportunities to attract talent for the Scribbr Academy and improve the efficiency of editor recruitment. At the same time, you will uncover and promote the various factors to make Scribbr an employer of choice and a great place to work for freelance editors. 

At the beginning you will focus on recruitment and employer branding aimed at our editors, but ultimately you can grow and build a recruitment team that manages this for all of Scribbr, including Citation & Layout specialists and our full-time employees.
