Do you have a passion for recruitment? And are you looking for new experiences within talent attraction by joining a successful top-ranking Dutch university?

Job description

Are you an experienced Talent Acquisition Specialist, looking for that next role in corporate recruitment, preferably in a more social organisation? Within the TA Team of the Eindhoven University of Technology we have an opening ready for you, to start working with the services side of the organization.
Your position
As an experienced Senior Recruiter, you act as a business partner to the various hiring managers you will work with, in the field of IT, Finance, Education & Student Affairs, General Affairs, Real Estate, Communication and/or HR. At the TU/e these domains are called 'services', and many of these services are growing and transferring to new ways of working.

You'll support your hiring managers by attracting talents on regional or even international level. Next to screening active applicants, you will also actively source for passive talented candidates. It's your passion for getting in touch with passive candidates that will eventually contribute to your recruitment successes. You will be involved in pre-selection of candidates with the objective of offering shortlists/ talented profiles to your hiring managers. Next to your daily recruitment activities, we also offer you opportunities in joining employer branding related projects, including participating in various career events. Your own ideas are most welcome, and we are happy to also learn from your recruitment insights.
At the TU/e and in our TA team the work environment offers significant freedom and flexibility. You will have the chance to build up relationships not only with your internal stakeholders, but through your credibility you will become a trusted partner for them, helping and advising them regarding their hiring choices. After all, it is the people that create the culture. Additionally, your drive for achievement will help to ensure that your stakeholders are engaged and committed throughout the entire process. You have an independent role, yet you are supported by your recruitment and HR colleagues. As a Senior Recruiter you will be joining a small but connected team, that appreciates the fun factor as well! 

Our team 
The Talent Attraction team started in March 2019. Eindhoven University of Technology was the first university in the Netherlands to setup a dedicated recruitment team. Since 2019 many other universities in the Netherlands have followed with in-house recruitment. As a member of the Talent Attraction team, you will have the opportunity to further professionalize and expand recruitment within the university.                                                                 
The Talent Attraction (TA) team currently consists of 6 colleagues (project lead/recruiter, three recruiters for professors, one for professional staff, and a project coordinator talent attraction). This vacancy is an addition to the team, and is focused on the professional staff side of the university. Our TA is expecting growth in the coming years, to keep up with the growth ambition of the TU/e itself. You may also read more about the TU/e's strategy and ambition on TU/e Strategy 2030 (tue.nl).
