Intern Recruiting

Intern / Student, Full-time · Berlin

About us
Remember when you were a student? Most likely you were short of cash and had a limited choice of jobs. Our Founders Cihan, Frederik and Fritz remember that too and that’s why they started Zenjob. We believe you should be able to do a job you like and be able to fund your life as a student.

Our vision is to change the future of work with technology. We start doing that by offering students jobs in real-time through our app and providing companies with a platform that manages their staffing needs. Today more than 10.000 students, we call them Talents, fund their studies through Zenjob and already close to 1.000 companies trust us with providing great talent.

We’ve come a long way in a short space of time. While there are many things we’re already proud of achieving, there are still a lot of decisions to be made - so you’ll get to shape and build things from scratch. 

Our international (23 different nationalities) and creative team of over 150 ambitious and passionate Zenies are at the core of what makes us unique and who we are. It’s important that we acknowledge and celebrate this diversity. As an equal opportunities employer, we believe the foundation of our dynamic and pioneering spirit starts with a fair and inclusive culture. 

We are backed by Acton Capital (also investor in Etsy, HomeToGo), Red Alpine (N26, Juniqe) and Atlantic Labs (EyeEm, Soundcloud). All of them share our vision of growing a sustainable and game changing business.
We are looking forward to welcoming YOU!

The People & Culture Team is looking for a Recruiting Intern to join us and support the growth of Zenjob.

Our team plays an important part in the attraction, development and retention of our people (Zennies).

You will have the opportunity to directly contribute to our recruiting efforts and how we identify and attract people to Zenjob.   

Your tasks
In this position you will have the opportunity to work with a broad range of people and play an important role in attracting and recruiting future Zennies.

Initially you will shadow the existing team members to understand how we currently recruit. This will mean you will have exposure to our applicant tracking system (Personio) and the back end processes of recruiting. You will also learn how the team interacts with the internal and external stakeholders to manage the candidate lifecycle.

Other parts of your role will be scheduling interviews, following up with hiring teams and reviewing candidate applications in the various platforms we use.

You will be encouraged to work independently once you feel comfortable to do so and will receive ongoing coaching and support.
Your Profile
Ideally you are:
  • well-structured and organised
  • able to plan and prioritze with minimal guidance
  • love variety and diversity of topics with your work
  • passionate to learn and develop yourself

Why Zenjob
Zenjob provides a solution to real life problems. Companies who need flexible short-term employees and students who want to earn extra money to support themselves during their studies.

In your role, you will have a direct impact in finding the people who contribute to solving these real life problems.

Your benefits
  • Work with colleagues who are open minded, supportive and passionate.
  • We'll provide you with the training and the tools you need to be successful in your role.
  • The opportunity to learn from experienced colleagues and contribute from day 1. 
  • An Internship that will initially run for 6 months with the possibility of extending to a permanent role.  
Sounds good?
