Reporting directly to the Founder/CEO, you will be tasked with the set-up of the HR team.

In the initial phase, the key focus would be to lead, plan and execute hiring efforts, to fill the organization with like-minded individuals who can propel the business forward. Concurrently and/or subsequently, the focus will move towards providing sound HR advisory to the business and continue on fostering stronger HR tools such as talent management, employee development, performance management and employee engagement. Lastly, it is to also create a fun and inclusive work environment where people can allow their creative juices to flow.
