Global recruitment plus the opportunity to implement a global EVP
12 month Maternity Contract
An exciting opportunity exists to join one of Australia’s most well respected and fastest growing international development organisations – The Fred Hollows Foundation. Working across 22 countries, our vision is for a world where no one is needlessly blind, and Indigenous Australians enjoy the same health and life expectancy as other Australians. 
Working as part of our supportive global People and Organisational Development team, our Recruitment Specialist is responsible for all aspects of The Foundations global recruitment function. We pride ourselves on providing a high standard of recruitment advice and support to our global people managers, as well as designing and implementing effective global recruitment practices. 
With a focus on managing roles in-house, you will work with autonomy across a variety of roles and at all levels across the organisation. Your skills, expertise and consulting abilities will be integral in supporting key Organisational Development initiatives around talent acquisition and succession planning.
To be successful in this role, you will have previous experience in a similar position, recruiting across multiple countries/regions.  You will have an in-depth understanding of end-to-end recruitment, with demonstrated experience in delivering a high level of client and candidate care.  The complexity of this position is recruiting across a geographically diverse workforce, so you will need to design culturally appropriate resourcing solutions to identify and attract key talent. 
Your ability to work independently and to deal confidently with a range of people, cultures, situations and multiple deadlines will be critical to your success.  Your ability to establish and maintain key relationships will be your strength - developing strategies and resources to influence, persuade and build the confidence of key stakeholders internally, often in a virtual environment.

4 out of 5 people who are blind in the developing world don't need to be. Routine treatment costing as little as $25 can restore sight and hope.
