Senior Talent Acquisition Partner

22.08.2022 Human Resources Permanent Open position Apply here
The Rovio HR Team is a passionate team turning the company strategy into programs and projects focusing on people, organisation, and culture. We drive talent and leadership development, design modern people processes, and provide insightful and effective business HR partnership to Rovio business units. Together with all Rovio people, we are building a mission-driven company and culture that makes us one of the best places to work at.

We are looking for a Senior Talent Acquisition Partner who has the ambition to develop TA for the future and drive change in the organisation as a new member of our HR team. You will work alongside a diverse group of TA professionals who deeply care about the candidate experience and strive to be the best at getting better. You will be involved in recruiting for our sites globally (7 studios distributed in 5 countries and counting!) which means you will interact with Rovians and candidates from across the globe in various disciplines and seniority. In addition to the day-to-day recruiting, you will also take on a role as the domain expert in specific areas of TA so you can further grow your career in the TA/HR field.

The team is currently distributed in two locations: Finland and Sweden and you can join us in Helsinki or Stockholm. We value the hybrid approach and let you decide if you mostly work from home or from our office, as long as it fits with the team priorities and allows you to connect in the best way to your stakeholders.

What your days will look like:

  • Take ownership of the recruitment process from sourcing to closing candidates mainly hiring for Product, UA & Game Design roles.
  • Find, attract & engage candidates for current and future hiring needs and act as their point of contact while ensuring a positive candidate experience.
  • Partner effectively with key internal stakeholders including hiring managers, TA team members and HR colleagues. In particular, coach hiring managers so they can make the best hiring decisions (e.g. advise on the recruitment process, provide interview training).
  • Lead and elevate the capabilities of our overall TA team in one or more of the following areas: sourcing, recruitment marketing, diversity, analytics or candidate experience.

Who we think will do great in this role:

  • You have an understanding of best practices in recruitment as well as  strong sourcing skills to find the right people even beyond LinkedIn.
  • You are used to working with hard to fill positions and mapping out the desired market.
  • Stakeholder management together with collaboration & communication are your core skills, and you are not afraid to occasionally challenge your counterparts (e.g. HR/TA team members, hiring managers, candidates).
  • You possess an ability to prioritise in order to handle several roles at any given time as well as the persistence to handle searches that may take long periods of time.
  • Experience in either gaming or tech industry is strongly preferred. If you have hired roles in Art and Design or product management it’s a merit, but curiosity and the ability to learn how to hire for a new job discipline is most important.
  • You have resilience and drive to navigate through ambiguity, anticipate the unknowns, experiment, follow-through and continue to learn.
  • You are analytical and used to utilise data to make decisions, influence stakeholders and drive change in and outside the team.

Recruitment process:

  • First meeting: You will meet with one of our TA Partners and your future colleague. The aim is for us to know who you are, what your experience has been and what motivates you. This is also an opportunity for you to learn about Rovio, the wider HR team and the specifics of the role.
  • Second round: Two separate interviews with members of our Talent Acquisition team so we can learn about your recruiting skills and your ways of working. We encourage you to use this time to discuss how the team currently operates and if hired, how they can help you develop in the role.
  • Final round: final round with Head of people operations to focus more on how you can add to the Rovio culture

We welcome applicants to use the name they want to be addressed by in the application form, regardless of whether it is their legal name.
