Job Description

About the department: 

You’ll join a progressive and innovative Global People and Talent team which has rapidly grown to over 80 people globally.  Our department consists of HR Generalists as well as specialists in Recruitment, Payroll, Compensation & Benefits, HR Systems and Internal Communications. By joining the team you will have the opportunity to be involved in all aspects of our brilliant work as we shape the future for Farfetchers in creative and inspiring ways. We are a company with an entrepreneurial spirit and innovative culture. We are positive, passionate and live our values: Be Human, Be Brilliant, Todos Juntos, Be Revolutionary, Think Global and Amaze Customers day to day. 

About the role: 

As our business continues to grow, our Talent Team needs to do the same. In this role you will support us in our mission to deliver a world class recruitment offering so that we can continue to hire the best of the best. We have grown exponentially as a business and as our Engineering and Data teams expand in London, we will be looking for a Tech recruiter with knowledge of these two worlds. 

By using a combination of sourcing channels including social media, job boards, headhunting and meetups, you’ll be able to attract and recruit the necessary quality and quantity of exceptional talent required for our growing business.

The Ideal Candidate

About you:

We’re looking for someone with either in-house or agency experience with solid experience managing a 360 recruitment process. Ideally you’ll have recruited into a Legal, Finance or Strategy space before, having a solid understanding of the types of roles that could arise and a pre-existing network of candidates, but it’s not essential. You’ll be comfortable working quickly to tight deadlines in a world that can be very busy and demanding, so adaptability is essential for this role.  

We need someone who is a proactive trouble-shooter, who has high resilience to a fast moving environment and brimming with new ideas that will add to our already ‘be brilliant’ approach to sourcing top talent. You will be a super organized ‘doer’ and able to juggle multiple tasks simultaneously.

We can’t wait to receive your application. But before you send it to us, here are some helpful tips to make sure your application is as strong as it can be. 

  • Have you set out why this role is a good match for your career aspirations and that you have the skills and experience required? We want you to be as clear about your future ambitions as we are and whilst we encourage people to learn, develop and grow, you will need to hit the ground running.
  • Have you checked spelling and grammar? We have high standards and you don’t want to miss out because of something as easily correctable as a typo. 

We are committed to equality of opportunity for all employees. Applications from individuals are encouraged regardless of age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and marriage and civil partnerships.

About Us

Farfetch is unlike anything in the world of fashion and technology.

Our mission: to revolutionize the way the world shops.

To do it, we need innovators. People who challenge convention and dare to dream.

We’ve gone from a start-up to a billion dollar business. But we’re not done yet. Far from it.

Be bold.

Be brilliant.

Together, we can be extraordinary

We have rapidly grown into a truly global company since our launch in 2008 and we’re continuing to grow. Our family now includes partner boutiques and brands across Europe, North and South America and Asia; we demonstrate our ‘Think Global’ value in everything we do.

We are a global team of over 1,000 people and have offices based in London, New York, L.A., Porto, Guimaraes, Lisbon, Sao Paulo, Shanghai, Moscow, Hong Kong & Tokyo.

We are a company with an entrepreneurial spirit and innovative culture. We are positive, passionate and live our values: Be Human, Be Brilliant, Todos Juntos, Be Revolutionary, Think Global and Amaze Customers day to day.
