Eventbrite’s goal of building the marketplace for live experiences relies on our foundation of world-class talent and unbeatable company culture. Hiring top talent in some of the most competitive markets globally is no easy task, but we have a creative and dedicated team who has helped Eventbrite scale to over 700 Britelings in 10 countries over the past 10 years. We’re looking for an experienced Manager of Executive Search to join our Talent Acquisition Leadership Team that connects Eventbrite’s vision, mission and story to inspire, coach and mentor the team. You will evolve Eventbrite’s Executive Search structure and processes, build in-house Executive Search expertise, hiring, developing, and managing the right resources to execute against the global executive hiring strategy you develop for the company, always keeping diversity at the forefront. You will work closely with C-suite Executives, their leadership and admin teams, and the broader HR team (business partners, total rewards, and talent management) to truly understand the Executive Search hiring needs and priorities at both strategic and tactical levels. You have led, mentored, and guided a team of executive recruiters and sourcers through the entire recruiting life cycle while also working closely with leaders to drive a healthy, consultative recruiting culture. You will build strong, respectful internal and external relationships and help elevate Eventbrite’s employment brand to a highly competitive level.
Eventbrite Talent Acquisition strives to attract and retain top talent, create a diverse workplace and build rewarding careers. Our values are deeply rooted in building a strong employment brand and creating delightful candidate and hiring manager experiences. We believe people are our greatest asset and the talent we attract drives the success of Eventbrite. Our Talent Acquisition team is tight-knit, quick-moving, and fun-loving. We believe recruiting should be a company-wide effort, candidate experience comes first, and that hiring should be based on relationship-building and not transactions. Each member of our team is invested in telling our company’s story, building our brand, and establishing new processes that challenge the traditional and often dated methods of recruiting.
As a Manager of Executive Search, you are a true coach, leading and developing a team of sourcers and recruiters who will thrive from your guidance, mentorship and career coaching. You bring a strong perspective that inspires change and motivates recruiters to develop simple solutions to complex problems. You mastered the art and science of executive recruiting as an individual contributor and are able to translate your magic and expertise to lead others. You get the true meaning of inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility, visible in who you hire for your team and for Eventbrite. You devise specific actions to ensure your team helps Eventbrite hire a more diverse set of leadership talent. You own executive recruiting for Director level and above roles for both technical (Eng, Product, Design) and non-technical (Customers, Finance, Marketing, Communication, HR, and Legal). You bring to life innovative recruiting strategies to support the growing needs of the business. You work with business, Finance, and Talent Acquisition leadership to actively identify and quantify, through workforce planning and tracking, the hiring needs for leadership talent. You are a catalyst for the group’s hiring strategy and road map, and create success metrics with our other recruiting leaders. You keep the business up to date throughout the hiring cycle presenting information in a way that is accurate and usable by your partners. Your view into the talent market ensures that our decisions and strategies around executive search are informed by the best possible information.
