We are hiring Head of People and Culture
IN A NUTSHELL
SelfFix's mission is to inspire better ways to carry; use business as a force for good; and help the world – and our crew – flourish. Our Head of People and Culture is vital to helping us meet that mission. You will be responsible for helping our crew flourish – leading the recruitment, development and support of our people. We’re fast growing, so you’ll have plenty of onboarding to oversee. And we’re fast changing, so you’ll have new policies and procedures to nut out. And for our crew, you’ll pay attention to the areas of motivation, wellbeing, and behaviour change.
You’ll oversee the organisation of our regular events, and surprise us with ones we hadn’t thought of. From the annual conference to Friday drinks, you’ll shape get-togethers that we’ll remember, that are on the button for Selffix. You’ll help us maintain the culture we’ve worked so hard to build – helping staff productively surface conflict rather than suppress it or explode it all over their peers; and you’ll help us continue to value evidence and skill over political power, as well as the many other cultural values we strive for.

YOU COULD BE THE ONE, IF…
You’re driven to help people be their best. You know that the combination of a big ambition and the right team to achieve it can make fabulous things happen. You have a solid amount of experience in helping people thrive in an organisation, and in particular in supporting great people working together to achieve a common goal. You’ve managed a team yourself and understand that checklists and procedures done right free people to innovate when it’s important, without binding them in red tape.
You can expertly and confidently guide the recruitment of our people.
You will oversee Selffix’s recruitment process, with the excellent support of our internal recruiter. You know just how to identify gaps in our wonderfully diverse team and find the best routes to reach exceptional employees.
You are hell-keen on developing our people.
From design to digital, brand to product, finance to office management, you’ll spot the skills that need a helping hand and work with managers and staff to help them achieve their best.
You know just how to support a human towards being their best.
You are well-versed in systems and facilities that can support staff and create an environment that lets them shine. The Selffix team is located in our Fitzroy and Bells Beach offices, in co-working spaces in LA and London, and a few others sprinkled remotely across the globe. You know how to facilitate and encourage connections across teams and locations, and make sure team members have a cohesive experience wherever they’re located.
You believe in our culture, and want to do everything you can to nurture it.
We choose to fill our business with ‘smart people with good intentions who get shit done’. Smart people is about working smart, not doing well on an IQ test. We’re interested in thinking about how we do things better, and we help each other by testing our ideas and checking our assumptions. Good intentions build trust and a long term desire to keep moving together in the same direction. We’re a great team, and more importantly, we have huge respect for each other. Getting shit done is the name of the game. We’re outcomes focused; at Selffix we work to make people’s objectives clear and then we get out of the way and let people shine.
To your ears, that last paragraph sounds amazing and you want in.
