(Senior) Recruiter (m/f/d)

Your role

 You will help us further expand our presence in Germany and our other European hubs. In this role you will plan, coordinate and lead hiring activities. You will work individually and in collaboration with other team members. You will be responsible for your own recruitment processes: attracting and reaching out to potential candidates, leading prescreening activities, and guiding candidates through the entire process.

You will be involved in and responsible for broader value-add projects. As a subject matter expert, you will develop and share best practices and work with other recruiters to coordinate ongoing activities and events.

This role will give you the opportunity to not only interact with talented candidates and inspiring leaders, but also to constantly develop your own skills, as McKinsey focuses on relentless growth and self-improvement. You will have the opportunity to partner with McKinsey’s leadership across Europe, to scope out requirements, interact with and consult candidates on potential career moves and utilize the expertise and support of an established Experienced Professional (EP) team dedicated to providing the highest level of client and candidate service.

Depending on your qualifications, you could either start on the Senior Recruiter or Recruiter level.
