Entrepreneur First is Europe's leading Talent Investor, a company that backs exceptional people to quit their jobs and build the biggest ideas they can imagine. We’re a pre idea investor which means we help shape the early days of the company and support the journey through the first 12 months
Naturally, ‘Talent’ is a core part of the work and we’re seeking an Associate level (2-5 years) recruiter who wants to take either their in house or agency experience to the next level. It is also possible to apply to this role with strong domain expertise in Web3 and upskill in talent areas later.
What you’ll do
Search Europe’s major tech start ups for the very best performers and help them become founders. This is a role focused on deep connections with the founder community.

How we help founders
Primarily we help Entrepreneurs find Co-Founders. Every 6 months we put together a programme of over 80 people from commercial and technical backgrounds who can work together on difficult problems.
Your main role is finding and selecting this group of people. Once in a team we then advise them on start up strategy and finally help them with fundraising through our network of angel investors and venture capital firms.
Once teams have built their products we then provide a cash injection of £80,000 for a 10% stake in that company.
