Recruitment Coordinator/Analyst (EMEA)- Fixed Term Contract

The Guidewire HR & TA EMEA team is growing!

We are looking for a Recruitment Coordinator/Analyst to join our dedicated Dublin HR team supporting the EMEA region. This is an exciting role which will help the team continue to thrive as we grow and face more complexities across EMEA.

In this role you will be working closely as an Ops team partnering with HRBP’s, Recruiting, and internal stakeholders in the business whom you support day to day. You will also own the candidate experience throughout both the application process (being a point of contact for scheduling and expense queries) as well as Pre Hire duties (including contracts, on boarding, new hire orientations etc).

You will join a team of 5 with responsibility/ ownership of your regions across EMEA – working off your own initiative and facing exciting challenges & learning opportunities as we continue to grow globally. You'll drive continuous improvements in existing processes through transformation, process re-engineering and investment in tools and automation regionally and globally.

This is an initial 12 month FTC, but as a team, we have 100% conversion rate and would like to see this new hire become a longer-term Guidewire employee who can add value as they continue to grow.
