Who are we?

We are Vinokilo.

We are a growing team on a mission to make secondhand fashion more desirable than new, fast fashion. Why? Because we believe fashion should be stylish and sustainable.

The impact you will create at Vinokilo:

As a Recruiter, you'll get to work with our vibrant HR Team. You'll be in charge of collaborating with the department managers on a regular basis and proactively identifying future hiring needs. You'll ensure our company attracts, hires and retains the best employees, while growing a strong talent pipeline. With you on board we'll become the biggest secondhand fashion company in the world, which seems like a wild statement, but is more realistic with you on board because

  • You'll design and implement an overall recruiting strategy.
  • You'll develop and update job descriptions and job specifications.
  • You'll perform job and task analysis to document job requirements and objectives.
  • You'll prepare recruitment materials and post jobs to appropriate job boards/newspapers/colleges etc. 
  • You'll source and recruit candidates by using databases, social media, etc.
  • You'll screen candidates' resumes and job applications.
  • You'll conduct interviews using various reliable recruiting and selection tools/methods to filter candidates within schedule.
  • You'll assess applicants' knowledge, skills, soft skills, experience and aptitudes.
  • You'll onboard new employees so they become fully integrated.
  • You'll monitor and apply HR recruiting best practices.
  • You'll provide analytical and well documented recruiting reports to the rest of the team.
  • You'll act as a point of contact and build influential candidate relationships during the selection process

 

You’ll love this role because: 

  • You’ll be playing a leading role in the fight against fast fashion.
  • You are passionate about sustainability and secondhand fashion. 
  • Your work will be meaningful, challenging, and will have a tangible impact on the future of Vinokilo. 
  • You’ll get to work with a diverse team of individuals, all passionate about the impact we’re collectively creating. 
  • You value long term profitability and sustainability over short term gains. 
  • There is plenty of room for growth for the company and the role.
  • You enjoy taking responsibility and calculated risks.
  • We are based in one of the most stunning areas with the beautiful countryside on our doorstep, yet a short hop, skip and a jump away from Mainz, and the hustle and bustle of Frankfurt and its International airport. 
  • We believe in working flexibly and putting the onus on you to create a schedule that works for you and the company. 

 

What we need you to have:

  • Proven work experience as a Recruiter (either an in-house recruiter or a staffing agency recruiter)
  • Solid ability to conduct different types of interviews (structured, competency-based, stress etc.)
  • Hands-on experience with various selection processes (video interviewing, phone interviewing, reference check etc.)
  • Ability to organize skills assessment centers
  • Familiarity with HR databases, such as Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) and Candidate Management Systems (CMS)
  • Hands-on experience with recruiting software, as well as Human Resource Information Systems (HRIS) or Human Resource Management Systems (HRMS)
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills
  • Strong decision skills

NB: We know lots of people, especially women and minorities, do not apply for roles unless they hit all the requirements listed in the job descriptions — these are normally wish lists. We've tried to simplify this list into what we actually NEED you to have and what would be nice. Either way, if you feel this is your perfect role, we want to hear from you.
