Let’s start by telling you about life at Mindfield before you click on the apply button…trust me if shortlisted we will ask more questions around this than anything else. At Mindfield we have shared some passions, passions like animals…specially dogs, sports majorly ruled by cricket, football, a new found passion for Golf and Djembe drums. Everyone has their unique skill as well…while one dances very well there are some on the team with two left feet .Some read & some read only resumes! We come together to create a beautiful rainbow of diversity of thought and perspective which keeps us learning and evolving every day. Considering the width and depth of work that we do across 30+ countries from Dubai …we need to operate on high levels of agility and EQ. As we say internally we need a specific brand of “crazy”. So if you have that specific streak of passion that borders on maniacal and there is a reason for that… You would fit into the company culture! You would derive enormous pleasure from the range of roles and clients that you would work with (tedious work for the weak hearted honestly) and enjoy new learnings which will be ably supported by great financial rewards.
We are looking to expand our team of 360 degree recruiters and would want people who can work smart and enjoy the roller coaster world of recruitment and its ever changing landscape. While the GCC has historically been our main play area we have over the past 8+ years done substantial body of work in the emerging markets of Africa …the same old same old does not agree with us a team and we continuously dive deep into new markets. Managing multiple industry verticals and countries you should have prior experience in delivering superior value to your client and candidate base. Just relying on social media to save your bacon is not how we play the game… so only job board/social media reliance for talent acquisition would not work with the current way of life at mindfield. You should have experience in recruiting from the mid to the senior levels. Experience in hiring in the digital space would be an added advantage .You should have independently handled mandates, have a consultative approach and a solution seeking mind-set.
Candidates need to carry hard-core recruiting experience as you would have already gone through the trials and tribulations of changing goal posts and are sufficiently road worthy to be able to handle the near impossible deadlines, work in different time zones and work across different cultures and mind-sets. These positions would sit well with people who are 60% hunters and 40% farmers by nature.
before applying we trust that as a recruiter you also have aversion to the absolutely mismatched application flooding your inbox. Please send us a snap shot of your work which reflects your achievements as a Hunter and a Farmer in the recruitment world and a mention of your one big failure and what you learnt from it.
