Meet our team
The EMEA Talent Acquisition team represent Hitachi Vantara career opportunities to the talent market and we are passionate about the role we play in influencing the future success of the organisation. We've built a successful team with a true direct sourcing model; one that partners with the business to anticipate future resource needs, nurtures talent pipelines and employs evermore creative ways of identifying and attracting the best talent into the organisation.
We are quality focused, with a desire to go the extra mile, which enables us to build strong relationships with our business customers and deliver talent solutions that bring added value. We're highly resourceful and always ready to tackle hiring projects with enthusiasm and positivity. Our collaborative team provides the opportunity to work with international colleagues and on a broad variety of hiring initiatives and TA focused projects. What you will be doing
Each recruiter in the team is typically aligned to a group of EMEA countries and they support the hiring needs of potentially all three of our lines of business, Digital Infrastructure, Digital Solutions and Product. This results in a diverse role that could see you searching for talent across sales, pre-sales, billable consultants, software engineers, and occasionally, finance, HR, legal and marketing disciplines. Our Central EMEA region includes Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Turkey, Israel and Central & Eastern European countries.
As the primary point of contact for hiring managers in your region, you will:
