Client Details

A leading tech start up based in the City of London.


This is a critical role for us: hiring is one of the most important things we do. This person will be representing H4 externally and have a large influence on our reputation internationally.

We have a great team and intend to keep improving, so we look to hire from just a small set of people who are outstanding at what they do. This person needs to be able to recognize what"great" looks like, and to be able to tailor their approach to dealing with high end candidates.

The ideal candidate will be able to own the whole recruitment process from defining hiring needs (with hiring managers) through to negotiation and completion of hires. The candidate will work closely with our London-based People Team and the senior management team in London.

them into the team
