HR Manager – High Frequency Trading – London – Up to £70k base + bonus

In a time when some crypto businesses are shrinking, there are only a few doing the exact opposite, with the balance sheet to make it happen.

During a recession, tech firms may adopt a more cautious approach to hiring. There’s an increased focus on cost-saving measures, and a shift towards hiring for roles that are deemed essential for the company’s immediate needs. In most cases, this means only hiring on the engineering and technology front.

Therefore, it takes a special type of firm to have the funding and the vision to continue growing its business with one of its first HR hires.


The Company

We are working with a pioneering firm that specialises in trading and market making for cryptocurrencies. Despite a challenging backdrop currently in the world of digital assets, this firm continues to hire throughout, a positive sign of their approach towards risk.


The Role

As the first HR hire in London, you will deliver impactful initiatives that span the HR spectrum. This includes talent acquisition, talent development, employee relations, employee engagement, and performance management.

You will support the team throughout their journey, from their first day on the job to their last. This includes administering compensation and benefits programs, such as insurance, payroll, bonuses, pensions, and leave.

You’ll also fly the flag for this respected brand in the crypto community! Increasing brand awareness will be done on university campuses and build strong relationships with student organisations and career centres.

Additionally, you’ll provide guidance and support to managers on all employee relations cases, handling these sensitive issues with confidentiality and fairness.
