Skills & Requirements

Hi there, potential future teammate!
We are happy that you found your way to us. As our lovely colleague Katharina from Human Care is heading out for parental leave, we now have an empty spot waiting for its next rightful owner. This hybrid seat is located in our Berlin or Munich office and the vacancy is (as of now) fixed-term, starting in February 2023 and ending in early summer 2024 (extension or permanent position can potentially be discussed). You probably figured it out already that we're talking about an HR role even though that's not what we call it. For us people are individuals, not resources.

To fill in the empty seat in our team, we are looking for an experienced caring people person who has a strong strategic approach to partnering with business and leadership and experience in organizational development as well as leading a team. Our ways of working are all about agility, and our culture about transparency, caring and trust. Commitment to a no-silo way of working, positivity and a ‘can do’ attitude are crucial properties alongside strong and engaging communication skills. Fluent German and English skills are a must! We value people that are both great team workers and ambitious self-starters with a desire to be part of a workplace with a lean, flat structure, built on a foundation of straightforwardness.

The role of Human Care Lead, Germany will be mostly local and partially global. You will support the local business, supervisors and leadership both in strategic and operational people matters. You work closely together with the German leadership team in planning and implementing development actions related to organizational development, people happiness, engagement, wellbeing, professional development, retention and other people topics. As an experienced Human Care professional you lead the German HC team and will add value to discussions related to overall people management & development in the (global) HC team. As you probably know, deep down the job is all about tackling changing situations, prioritizing and leading yourself in a proactive manner based on your strong professional background. However, to make it easier to visualize all this in your head, your work days could include items like:

  • Leading our lovely local HC team of 5 wholehearted people persons

  • Together with the local HC team, keeping an overview of our various HC responsibilities related to the whole employee journey from on-boarding to off-boarding

  • Partnering with the leadership on strategic matters to steer our ship through the open waters

  • Leading regular meetings with supervisors and leadership on people related topics

  • Providing people data and insights for business to support planning and decision making

  • Participating in selected global HC development projects according to your interest and expertise

To fulfill these tasks, fluent German and English skills as well as a track record in HR are a must

Is this all sounding just about right?
