Job Description

Would you like to lead our enthusiastic People and Culture Team and take Orbisk to the next level? 

As a People and Culture Lead at Orbisk, you are responsible for shaping the people function in a growing organization. You'll be deeply involved in both the strategic and operational sides of HR. This means implementing critical projects, such as new HR systems and ensuring the smooth running of daily HR operations. With your expertise, the organization will have the tools and structure it needs to succeed in the immediate term and be ready for what the future brings.

In your role, you are the Business Partner of the management team, which consists of six people. From addressing performance concerns to assisting with strategic personnel planning, you'll be their primary HR point of contact. You'll also be actively mentoring two other team members: the Office & People Ops Specialist and the Talent Acquisition Specialist. By helping them sharpen their skills and expand their knowledge, you'll ensure that they're continuously growing and contributing at their best.

Orbisk will be growing rapidly in size over the coming year, and will also be focused on internationalization. This is where your knowledge and experience of expansion strategies will come into play. You will have an integral role in helping to guide these processes, ensuring that structures are in place to manage these changes.

About Orbisk:

Orbisk is a start-up with a clear mission: to make the global food system more sustainable. The start-up provides complete insights into the food flows of hospitality organizations. Orbisk does this by offering a smart camera and scale that uses image recognition to register which food is thrown away, when, and in what quantity.

  • A strong passion for sustainability and commitment to reducing food waste
  • Experience in both startup/scale-up environments and established large organizations would be an asset

What will you get?

  • €4.550 - €5.700 gross p/m (depending on knowledge and experience)
  • 40-hour working week
