As the talent market continues its rapid change, candidates and client expectations on workforce solutions are also evolving. To navigate this, The Adecco Group is working to differentiate its value propositions, creating closer candidate relationships and building a more strategic connection with clients. We aim to let ideas flow from one market to another while leveraging available data sources within and across Adecco Group businesses. We succeed by driving technology adoption and increasing development cycle speeds with integrated candidate and client feedback loops.

Are you ready for a challenge? Do you want to make this change happen? Are you driven by delightful user experience and are you passionate about digital products? If so, we want you to join our team!

We are establishing the Group Product Organization to orchestrate the design, development and adoption of the end-to-end experiences Adecco will offer to candidates and clients in the future. The organization is structured around key audiences: our corporate clients, the candidates we engage with, as well as our internal colleagues. At the core of this organization, each product represents a specific experience that satisfies a client or candidate need. This, in turn, triggers the reason to connect, engage, share data or buy services from us. Products are continuously developed and improved across their lifecycle. As a whole, the collection of products we offer to a distinct audience are grouped and managed as a platform with a multi-functional team working together to develop and deliver differentiating value propositions.

We are looking for the Global Candidates Platform Lead to develop and execute the end-to-end experience for this key audience of The Adecco Group. As platform lead for the candidate journey, you transform our candidate engagement strategy into plans, designs, products and successful deployments. The platform lead acts as a strategic business partner for countries and businesses, with the objective of driving adoption, engagement and monetization of differentiating value propositions for The Adecco Group. Success and impact in this role means that Adecco Group will accelerate its strategy around perform-transform and innovate, the company delivers on productivity targets set for 2020 and beyond, offers unique candidate experiences measured by service adoption and satisfaction and realizes economies of scale and scope through global platforms.
