At Jump.Work we have a mission, and we work hard to make it happen. This means it's not a 9-to-6 job, and it won't be always easy. Building new business initiatives from scratch, and constantly striving to improve them, there will be lots of ambiguity, a ton of stuff you have to teach yourself. If you're looking for a lifestyle job then this is not right for you. However….If you're ambitious, up for a real challenge, like working with fantastic ambitious people, develop and stretch yourself to the limit, read on! This traineeship will push you outside your comfort zone, allow you to create your own opportunities, and develop yourself professionally. This is a great role for you if you’re not afraid to get your hands dirty, do mundane work as much as exciting new things to make things happen. Plus, if you show exceptional performance in this role, there is an opportunity to join in a graduate role after. Job descriptionYou’ll be helping us solve question such as... How do we screen the best people? What makes someone perfect for a role? How do you manage the relationship with a hiring manager in the company? How do you effectively manage a recruitment process?


In this traineeship, you’ll cover a broad range of tasks, including:

- Organise and coordinate the recruitment process using our customised technology and process

- Screen and interview potential professionals for the platform using structured interview guides, and situational judgement tests

- Build strong relationships with hiring managers at the businesses we work with to ensure high-quality customer service

- Co-develop new recruitment processes, assessments, and training/instruction materials to improve the screening and selection process, working together with the team & COO

- Work with the analytical marketing to automate the different recruitment acquisition and conversion strategies


This is a great opportunity if you’d like to learn more about recruitment, and explore or build a career as a professional recruiter and/or headhunter. It’s also a fantastic opportunity if you love operations, and building and optimising operational processes based on data and human interaction. From whatever angle you are coming, we can offer a unique opportunity to truly develop your entrepreneurial skills and learn how to build a fast-growing company.




Everyone on the team is super friendly and believes our team is at the core of our success - You must believe in this too. You like to ‘get shit done’ and are not afraid to upwards manage and ask for help where necessary to ensure success. You can come up with next steps and take initiative to start on them without being told exactly how to do it.

We're looking for someone with a great personality and passion for dealing with businesses and/or recruitment, or an interest to learn about it!


You also:

- Are a people person and love to meet new people and uncover their talents, offering them best opportunities based on their unique skills & talents, rather than preconceived ideas.

- Are not afraid to learn fast and are eager to experiment with new, out of the box solutions to achieve our goals

- Great grades in your further education (HBO/WO), and a strong preference for a background in HR, Business, Psychology, languages, humanities, social sciences or another human- and interaction focused subject

- Experience in operations or recruitment/HR is a plus, but not necessary
