What are you going to do:

YoungCapital Deutschland is growing fast, and won't stop growing in the upcoming years. As HR Director (m/w/d) at YoungCapital Deutschland in Köln, you’re the one who will prepare the department for the next step, by supervising all HR related activities in Germany. This includes:

  • rolling out YC Group’s HR policy, while at the same time making adjustments at country level;
  • being a key contributor in keeping the YC company values alive;
  • preparing the organisation for the next phase. At the moment, we’re structured like a start-up. So we need you to scale up the department;

  • developing an HR strategy and ensuring that all HR activities run smoothly;
  • being responsible for talent management, personal development of your employees and making sure that they have the right capabilities for the fast-changing market;
  • continuously benchmarking YC compensation and benefits within the sector, so we remain an attractive employer;
  • Continuing the development of the onboarding strategy for new colleagues to get the ‘YC spirit’; 
  • the entire HR scope: from talent acquisition and legal to facilities.

What we offer:

  • A challenging position in an entrepreneurial environment with room to roll out your own creative strategies;
  • Your own workspot at our open and modern office in Köln;
  • An truly amazing team with ambition to grow, with you in the lead;
  • An one-of-a-kind working environment, which includes our own YoungCapital festival (once the COVID-19 pandemic is behind us, of course)
  • A competitive compensation, great benefits, such as a lease car, iphone and laptop, 29,5 vacation days and a potential bonus;

What we ask:

  • Minimum hbo level or equivalent ability
  • A progressive career path of 10+ years in HR management. Experience in a leadership role (5+ years) is a must;
  • Experience in strategy development and translating this into concrete plans;
  • A solid understanding of German labour laws and consistent, legally secure interpretation of the current temporary labour argeement;
  • You have strong leadership skills and a down-to-earth mentality;
