Talent Acquisition Manager

We’re looking for a Talent Acquisition Manager who can help us grow. You will be responsible for recruiting and onboarding freelance academic editors from over the entire world to help students graduate!

Full-time · Amsterdam

Who are we?

Founded in 2012 by two ambitious students in Tilburg (the Netherlands), Scribbr started as a Proofreading & Editing company with only one editor. Today, our team of more than 800 editors, citation and layout experts worldwide provides proofreading and editing in 10 different languages to help students achieve their academic goals.

Combining years of experience in academic writing with technical know-how, we have successfully expanded our service portfolio by electronic tools like the Plagiarism Checker, Citation Generator, Citation Checker and a public Knowledge Base, which is used by millions of students and educators every year.

We’re proud to be a trusted brand in EdTech and continue to strive to make students 100% happy.

About the job

In the coming years, we will be doubling the size of our editor community. This means recruiting, onboarding and training new editors working from all over the world. You will design our new recruitment strategy! This strategy will determine how we will identify, attract, and onboard (qualify) new editors effectively. 

What does our Editor recruitment process currently look like?

  • Interested candidates apply via the language quiz on our website
  • When they pass the language quiz, they will start their editor training on our very own Scribbr Academy
  • After they’ve been fully introduced to Scribbr’s style of editing and have passed our Senior Editor’s assessments they become a fully qualified editor

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. 

Employer Branding

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. You will do this by focusing on topics such as:

  • 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
  • Coordinate employer branding activities and managing our employer reputation via different channels (e.g. Social Media, Glassdoor, etc.)

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.

About you

You have a strategic mindset and strong analytical skills, and are excited to take ownership of the complete development and implementation of (new) recruitment and employer branding strategies.

Additionally, you bring:

  • Bachelor degree or higher in the field of Human Resources, Business Administration and/or Marketing
  • Minimum of 3 years working experience in the field of Employer Branding and/or (full-cycle) Recruitment
  • Experience with recruiting freelancers or working as a freelancer yourself is a plus
  • Preferably familiar with scale-up growth and challenges
  • Refined communication skills in English (German, Dutch or French are a plus!)
    • Tech-savvy; ideally you’ve worked with Asana, Slack, and GSuite
    • Strong knowledge and competence in data analysis to process, structure and use data from application statistics to visualize and improve recruitment processes
    • Affinity with marketing and employer branding
