Canva’s Commitment and Mission

At Canva, we celebrate diversity. We deeply believe that bringing together diversity of thoughts, perspectives and expression is key to building the best product, team and company. We look for many different skills and abilities, as well as how you can enhance Canva and our culture. So, even if you don’t think you quite meet all of the skills listed or tick all the boxes, we’d still love to hear from you! 

Our mission at Canva is to empower the world to design and since launching in 2013, we have grown exponentially, amassing over 75 million monthly active users across 190 different countries and a team of over 2,800 people… and the best bit is that we’ve only achieved 1% of what we know we’re capable of. 

Join us and design your future.

We created Canva with the mission of empowering the world to design – and this means having content and experiences that represent the unique and vibrant world around us.  To achieve our goal of building a truly local product & marketplace, we are looking for a Talent Acquisition Partner to guide, support and educate our hiring managers on TA best practice as you work to build out their teams across the EMEA region.  

In this first of its kind role, you'll be our first Contingent Design Recruiter, based in this region. You’ll be responsible for finding the best creative talent across EMEA. You will own the contingent workforce hiring efforts for designers, creative leads, photographers, copywriters, illustrators, marketers and other specialised roles within our creative, design and marketing teams for EMEA. You will be experienced in setting hiring strategies, advising on hiring best practice for the region and ever passionate about delivering an awesome candidate experience, leading them through the recruiting and interviewing process, connecting them to the magic of working at Canva.

What you'll do:

  • Managing end-to-end recruitment processes for contingent workforce roles;
  • Supporting and enhancing creative advertising & sourcing strategies to engage high-quality contingent workforce candidates in a time-sensitive manner;
  • You’ll be responsible for developing and executing on innovative sourcing strategies that deliver the strongest results and make sure we’re bringing top talent into the design teams;
  • Your focus will be on hiring quality candidates with agility and speed, often in countries we’ll be hiring in for the first time, and so research and quickly understanding unique hiring cultures will be a must.

What we're looking for:

  • Previous experience in a fast-paced recruitment role and ideally have a successful track record of hiring top design, creative or marketing talent; 
  • Prior experience within temporary or contingent recruitment either based in an internal team or onsite (MSP/RPO) ideally, but those from agencies will also be considered;
  • Working knowledge in Europe and the Middle East would be a great advantage in this position;
  • You're adaptable and is comfortable working in a business that is rapidly evolving;
  • You have a love and understanding of culture, language and an awareness of cross-cultural differences;
  • You have a passion and interest in global culture and get excited by building Canva’s global workforce;
  • You’re an independent, adaptable and highly motivated Recruiter who loves what you do;
  • You get stuck into various platforms, technology tools, social networks and databases to uncover the best talent in the world.
In return, you'll be a part of a relatively new Global Contingent Workforce TA team who will be playing a big role in having an impact on your stakeholders. We appreciate individual's commitments outside of work so you own the office hours that works best for you. We have a competitive package on offer and an opportunity to be a part of the Canva's success story. Lead the way in this newly created role and help us shape creative hiring for EMEA.
