Job description

Welcome to Shortlist! We’re building a better way to hire, combining the best of tech, data, and human touch to provide executive search and talent technology services across Africa, India, and 20+ countries globally. We have two primary business lines: We offer executive search services to help clients find and hire senior managers and C-suite executives, and an innovative tech-based "Talent Drive" offer to power large-scale recruitment campaigns (campus hiring, internship programs, etc.) for volume hiring, using our in-house recruitment tech platform. Shortlist launched in 2015 in India and 2016 in Kenya, and to date we have worked with 700+ companies, engaged with over 1,500,000+ professionals, and made 3,000+ placements. 

We believe in the power of great teams to change the world, and have a significant focus on working with employers across the social impact and philanthropic sector, including dozens of leading social enterprises, NGOs, and foundations. This emerges from the founding team’s longstanding careers in social enterprise and impact investing, and is embodied in our founding and unwavering mission to “unlock professional potential.” We are also a values-driven culture, which you can read more about here, here and here.

We are growing quickly in India and across Africa, and we’re expanding our team of Talent Consultants and Talent Analysts, who drive the execution of executive searches across Africa and India.

And you will gain global exposure to the Shortlist team and 700+ companies worldwide, learn the art and science of world-class client and project management, and solve critical business problems at the intersection of psychology and strategy.

End to End Talent Acquisition:

  • Develop a good understanding of client companies, their industry, what they do, their work culture and environment.

  • Contribute to the culture and energy of the Shortlist team as we grow.
  • Listen, build on ideas constructively and motivate people towards common objectives.
  • Take note of lessons learnt to not only improve but also share with the rest of the organization.
