To be successful in this role, we believe the individual MUST
The individual will be working by themselves, must be innovative, focused, and hungry. We seek for people capable of ideation as well as execution with keen interest and passion for improving wide range of people operations (a.k.a. HR) across the globe. Awareness of mobile and social media trends is almost a must.
Partnership relations for GlobalHRU are not transactional… Our success will come from the relationships we build and maintain for years, not for an event. Organized and methodical approach to work with excellent follow-through to ensure partners’ expectations and deadlines are met will be a key factor of success.
Successful candidate should be able to project energy, confidence and establish credibility via phone and email. Exceptional interaction and verbal/written communication skills are an absolute must. While managing multiple accounts simultaneously, high attention to detail and able to oversee each deal are crucial.
The firm’s executives and advisors, as well as the client base and attendees are from all over the world, speaking many languages and working in different cultures. Understanding what this means, ability to adapt to a constantly changing environment and how it will impact the work will be the key.
Be a relationship builder, not an extreme used car salesman…
Our business is not built with cold calls, although that might be needed from time to time. Our business has become what it is because of our keen understanding of what the marketplace, our clients and our attendees seek… We fill a gap in the HR and Tech knowledge space.
Be a closer
We’re seeking someone who can take a broad stream of inquiries, and professionally convert them into successful campaigns, it’s that simple.
To be outrageously successful, we’d love to see the following as well
-Someone who can speak HR; if you’ve spent time in HR, that would increase credibility with our client base.
-Someone who can speak Tech; if you’ve spent time working in IT, particularly in the HR or recruitment space, that would be very cool.
-Experience in an HR Tech start-up, especially if it included business development or sales
