Our world is increasingly connected. Yet building a meaningful and sustainable career seems to become tougher every day. Companies face the same issue: candidates could be everywhere, but finding thé candidate who will make a true difference, is a considerable task.

YouConnect is a legal recruitment firm that wants to bridge that gap. We connect people to jobs that they’ll love and excel in. And we bring companies in touch with people who are excellent in their job, but who will also contribute massively to the organization as a whole. Because we believe these are the foundations of a durable relationship.

Today, our boutique firm is growing rapidly. That’s why we’re looking for a bright Legal recruitment consultant.

You will be involved in every crucial step along the way of connecting people and companies:

  • Interviews – You want to know all there is to know about our candidates. Skills and experience of course, but much more: what are they passionate about, what kind of person are they, what gives them energy in life. Interviewing is listening and paying attention.
  • Career advice – A great career is different from a great job. It’s way more important, but a lot less tangible. You’ll advise candidates on their next career step and companies in their search for new legal talent.
  • Building relationships – You’re always in it for the long haul, building trust and long-term relationships with candidates and companies.
  • Recruitment – You’ll manage the recruitment cycle from A to Z – from kick-off meetings and interviews, to managing the research process, selecting and coaching. You’ll have follow-up sessions and give advice during the entire recruitment cycle up until the position is successfully filled.
  • Contribution – You’ll contribute to the growth of YouConnect’s business in general. You’ll be looking out for new legal talent, you’ll participate in marketing and PR actions and help organize events to connect with our candidates and clients.

Above all, you are a natural listener; You are also inquisitive, someone who breaks through clichés and keeps on digging until you really ‘know’ the person who sits before you. Someone with a genuine interest in the passions and ambitions of your conversation partner.

On top of that, you’ll need to tick these boxes:

  • At least five years of experience as a professional in recruitment & selection and/or as a legal professional.
  • A natural talent and interest in building human relations: connecting with people is something you love.
  • Action-oriented and focused on obtaining qualitative results.
  • A positive mindset and an energetic attitude.
  • Extremely high ethical standards.
  • Your key values are excelling in everything you do, transparency and persistence.
  • A very good level in Dutch and English and at least a good working proficiency in French.

We walk our own talk. We’re interested in building strong relationships where both partners benefit from the connection.

You will enjoy flexibility in organizing your work, while you will regularly be working from YouConnect’s offices situated in a beautiful historic building in the centre of Ghent.

We offer you:

  • An entrepreneurial atmosphere with plenty of freedom for initiative.
  • Thorough training in recruitment and business development.
  • Access to a broad network of bright people.
  • Attractive remuneration and fringe benefits.
