LinkedIn Regional Leader, Talent Solutions (Netherlands) - Mid Market in Dublin, Ireland
LinkedIn was built to help professionals achieve more in their careers, and everyday millions of people use our products to make connections, discover opportunities and gain insights. Our global reach means we get to make a direct impact on the world’s workforce in ways no other company can. We’re much more than a digital resume - we transform lives through innovative products and technology.
In Europe, 99% of organisations are Mid-Market and SMBs, they are the powerhouse of the European economy, responsible for at least 2/3 of the jobs in the region. To help realising the LinkedIn Vision of creating economic opportunity, we support Mid-Market and SMB employers in hiring the best talent. This is a segment that has grown 5x in the last 4 years and is plan to double every 2 years.
What We Are Looking For
While in most large organisations, often Regional Executives say they lack the empowerment to make a real difference, at LinkedIn Talent Solution you have the ownership of an entire region. Think about it as being the CEO of your own business where your mission is to deliver customer value and accelerate the penetration of LinkedIn solutions in this territory while supporting the development of the economic graph in the region - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwawTzMfHic
