Terminal 1

Head of Talent / Lead Talent Strategy and Acquisition & Sr/Pr Recruitment Consultant

Taiwan Full-time


We are looking for a talent magnet with proven recruitment agency success to join us as Head of Talent / Lead Talent Strategy and Acquisition & Senior/Principal Recruitment Consultant.

Talent magnets are energetic, intelligent optimists that inspire and attract others. They have a unique ability to spot talented people and get them excited about using their skills to succeed and win in new roles and environments.

At Terminal 1, we build our own technology in-house and our goal is to build tools that recruiters love to use. You should be excited about technology in the recruitment space, envision the future, and help enable this vision by collaborating directly with our engineers.

A large portion of your role is attracting great talent for our team - 80% recruiters, 20% non-recruiters. Beyond sourcing, this involves getting candidates to understand our company strengths and competitive edge as well as getting them to envision themselves working with our fun and winning team. It also involves plenty of relationship building and keeping in touch with the best.

The other portion of your role is to improve the hiring experience - using the help of our technology, build a robust and streamlined interview experience that candidates will rave about.

This is a flexible role that can fit multiple backgrounds including senior HR recruiters and in-house recruiters with previous billing success. Additionally, you will be continuing external recruitment through building an HR desk with the candidates we accumulate.

The role also can fit different seniority levels. A TA lead will be expected to own our hiring process and pipeline. A Head of Talent will additionally be expected to shape our company brand in the market and consistently make key hires.

Terminal 1 is a full-service recruitment firm in Hong Kong and Taiwan bringing automation and machine learning to recruitment. We started as a group of technologists working as 360 recruiters to help build tools that recruiters love to use. You'll be joining a tight-knit team of recruiters and engineers. We're profitable, expanding quickly, and are making rapid progress on our technology.
