  • Influence the Global Recruiting Partner to ensure deliverables and strong partnership with the Business Partners, Diversity & Inclusion, Talent Development and Recruiting Operations
  • Partner with the various senior business managers and internal HR community to deliver against an aggressive hiring plan while building out our team, systems and processes
  • Engage in workforce planning, HR business planning and forecasting as well as establish and track metrics to measure the efficiency and effectiveness

You’ll need to have:

  • 10+ years of recruiting experience, including the successful recruitment of experienced and senior-level professionals

  • The ability to influence people without direct authority and effectively network within a mega-matrixed organization.

We’d love to see:

  • Experience leading teams and developing people through a strategic recruiting - transformation/change
  • Ability to lead in a fast paced environment and have a flexible approach
  • The ability to foster collaboration, maintain open communication and build strong business partnerships
  • You understand what financial people are about and what kinds of roles they play and aspire to – in fact, we’d love it if you already know a bunch of these folks
  • Every company says they have a fast-paced and deadline-driven culture, but Bloomberg really does
