Job Title: Talent Attraction & Selection Specialist
Reports To: VP of Talent
Our mission is to have the world’s water run Klir. We are a mission driven company. If you have a calling to use your abilities to leave a lasting impact and legacy for the world, and you think you have what it takes to affect millions of people’s lives every single day, then read on.
We don’t want you to apply to Klir because the job title sounds like something you could do. We want you to apply to Klir because our story and mission resonates with you, and you are confident you have what it takes to make a positive impact on our journey towards making our mission the new reality. We are inundated with applications each week, but we are not interested in people just firing off a resume: you need to make us believe we are right for each other. So how do you know if Klir is right for you:
Our belief is that you can teach skills but not attitude. Some roles will require a specific skill set but first and foremost you need to have the right attitude to succeed. Not getting offered a job in Klir doesn’t mean you aren’t good. It just means you aren’t right for us this time. We pride ourselves lucky to have a team that is a melting pot of people of different backgrounds. What we all have in common however is a set of core values that are Klir’s drivers for success:
Virtuousness, or to put it less politely, don’t be a Richard: this is hands-down our most important value. This shows how (if) you put our values in action. If you don’t enjoy a laugh, take life too seriously, don’t clean up your mess, are stingy, a glory hunter, arrogant or a bigot, then march on. Klir isn’t for you.
Togetherness: there is nothing we can’t achieve together. Einzelgängers do not fit in Klir. We believe working together makes us stronger and helps us see things from all perspectives for the better of our success. You make us better: we love the idea of working with people at the top of their game and we want to learn as much from you as you do from us. It is symbiotic. People driving their own agenda to the detriment of their team or Klir will not survive the journey.
Chutzpah: We have no time for ‘if only this was different then I would be able to do it’. You need to be a MacGyver, be able to solve problems on your feet in new and novel ways. Have the confidence to say what you think, and do as you say. We are transforming the way water is managed to save our species – traditional thinking won’t work. We don’t have time for people who are afraid or embarrassed to do or say things because of self-doubt. There is a fine line between confidence and arrogance. If you nail it, you are right up our street.
Drive: We are driven to win. We are not all necessarily obsessed about water, but we are motivated to make a difference and leave a legacy. We believe if we had a team stacked with water nerds, we would lose healthy pragmatism that our world exists in. That means you need to have the thirst to succeed, to make a difference and to do what it takes.
Irishness: Klir was born in Ireland and as a culture we have an Irish outlook on life. It doesn’t matter where you were born or identify from. Anyone can be (and is at least once a year) Irish. To have an Irish outlook you would regard yourself as:
A hard worker and have a great deal of cop on (i.e. abundance of common sense)
Always up for a bit of a laugh. Life is too important to take seriously
Be okay with sarcasm and a little bit cynical
Don’t be hypersensitive
Understand what the ‘craic’ is. Negative ‘craic’ is not desirable
If you feel the above applies to you and you think you are the one who can find more of these brilliant characters, then you could be our new Talent Attraction & Selection Specialist, or TAS Specialist.
