Regional Recruitment Lead (m/w/d) Berlin

At Picnic, we’re revolutionizing the way people buy groceries with our affordable and sustainable app-only service. Our cutting-edge technologies, just-in-time supply chain, and unique last-mile delivery strategy cause us to grow incredibly fast—which is where you come in. Are you an ambitious recruitment professional with the drive to build and lead a team, as well as a passion for supply chain & operations? Then we’re offering you the opportunity to join Picnic at our new Berlin location! 

🥜 In a nutshell 

Recruiting is a core strategic driver of our success. You will be responsible for hiring the top talent within your region (Berlin, Hamburg, or Frankfurt). You will also be a business partner for the team lead of the team(s) you recruit for and will identify their needs before they are able to spot them themselves!

You will take ownership of building a new team from the ground up. You will define the hiring targets and will be responsible for ensuring your team achieves them. You will be encouraged to use your creativity to improve our recruitment processes and our visibility. It’s a role with plenty of variety and your tasks might include organizing events, shooting promo videos, developing traineeships, organizing workshops for employees, and more! 

As part of the People team, you will regularly join forces with the central recruitment team sitting in the Düsseldorf and Amsterdam offices. You from time to time also will spend a few days in our German headquarter in Düsseldorf, approximately 1 day per week at a Fulfilment Centre, and you can work from home. 

🎯 What you’ll do

  • Build a new team from the ground up and be responsible for your team hitting its targets 
  • Find and hire many exceptional candidates in a short time, and lead them through the whole application process
  • Bring an ultra-sharp assessment of the skills, performance, and cultural fit of candidates
  • Build a robust pipeline of top candidates for immediate or future on-boarding
  • Combine your recruitment expertise and knowledge of your region to develop innovative strategies to find new talent
  • Think outside the box; what can we do that no one else does?
