Business Recruiter

Who we are

A piece of the moon, a complete dinosaur skeleton, the Pope's hat, the world's smallest book - at Catawiki, we come across extraordinary objects such as these every day.

As Europe’s fastest growing online auction platform, our mission is to make special objects available to everyone. In fact, 14 million users are buying and selling on Catawiki every month. This means we are continually growing and always on the lookout for new talent!

Born and raised in The Netherlands, we started in 2008 as a platform where collectors could manage their collections online. Yet, times change, ideas evolve, and in 2011 we hosted our first online auction and we haven’t looked back since! We’ve now grown to 500 Catawikians working across 7 international offices and are proud to have maintained our start-up mentality.  

What you will do

As our (international) business recruiter you are responsible for the entire recruitment process for our core functions including the Sales, Customer Support, HR, Finance and Expert positions. You will be responsible for helping to further develop Catawiki’s culture by embedding the company values in all business and recruitment processes.

You will find, target and approach the best profiles, making Catawiki stand-out from the crowd. You search for candidates, conduct interviews and manage the recruitment process from end to end, proactively making improvements along the way. You will manage your own portfolio of vacancies independently, from junior through to senior level and drive up the quality of hires by forming effective partnerships with hiring managers and using data to drive decision making.

As a business recruiter at Catawiki you will become an important member of Catawiki’s People Team. This means you will contribute and spearhead initiatives that make Catawiki a destination of choice for the best and most relevant talent in the market.
