Full time
At Big Health, our purpose is to help millions back to good mental health. Our “digital therapeutics” - Daylight™, for worry & anxiety, and Sleepio™, for poor sleep - are fully automated cognitive and behavioral programs that are as scalable and clinically validated as drugs. Our software combines the intimacy of the human voice, engaging animation, and clinically rigorous techniques to help people overcome their mental health challenges. Big Health’s products are backed by 50 published clinical papers including 13 randomised controlled trials (RCTs), and are cited in leading clinical guidelines including the American College of Physicians and NICE. Today, over 12 million people worldwide have reimbursed access to Big Health’s products, via leading employers in the US and the UK’s NHS. 

You will combine your strategic mind and impressive recruitment track record to lead Big Health’s Talent function. Your first mission is to grow our team from 80 to 150 employees over the next 12-15 months so that we have the sales, product and engineering teams we need to bring millions back to good mental health. You will act as player-coach, both filling requisitions individually and being responsible for guiding the recruiting function to achieve our long-term hiring goals.

As the Talent Manager you will...

    • Develop Big Health’s talent acquisition strategy, including sourcing, employer branding, recruiting analytics, interviewer training, and internal resources, in order to double our team size over the next 15 months 
    • Build an agile network of contract recruiters to give Big Health the flexibility to quickly adapt to fluctuating hiring needs
    • Partner with external advisors to minimize bias in Big Health’s recruiting practices and increase the diversity of our candidate pipeline 
    • Manage and mentor our in-house Talent team to excellent outcomes
    • Work hands-on as needed to fulfill all open reqs

In order to be successful in this role, you will need:

    • 6+ years of in-house talent acquisition experience
    • Solid track record of recruiting for highly technical and specialized roles
    • Experience managing and growing an in-house recruiting team
    • Strategic Thinker: You think beyond requisitions. Recruiting is a chess game, and you plan 5 moves ahead to hit hiring goals within budget. You are an invaluable resource for junior staff and an excellent thought partner for hiring managers and leadership. 
    • Organized and Process-Oriented: As a skilled project manager, you can balance a wide range and quantity of positions with ease, and you create a frictionless recruitment experience for both the hiring manager and the candidate. 
    • Resource Allocation - You’ve previously allocated resources for recruiting and can recognize patterns to identify what is required to succeed. You can see far enough ahead to build capacity that will meet our long-term recruitment needs. 
    • Polished Communicator - You are experienced and comfortable with presenting to company executives and recruiting for executive roles - and you have the verbal and written communication skills to match.

Life at Big Health

    • Be part of a team that includes clinical psychologists, software engineers, business leaders and even a former professional magician [shh… it’s a secret]. 
    • Surround yourself with the smartest, most enthusiastic and dedicated people you’ll ever meet, but who listen well, learn from their mistakes and when things go wrong, generously pull together to help each other out 
    • Check out our values - they’re a living, breathing part of our culture
    • Enjoy benefits including a generous vacation policy, professional development fund, flexible working locations and more.
    • Competitive salary packages including stock options.
