Employee reviews

Inhouse Recruiter Tech

I am a tech recruiter and love to inspire new employees for our special Trusted Shops culture and vision. This immediately infected me in my own interview and I was sure that I wanted to be part of the team and Trusted Shops.

I'm a techie at heart and fascinated by how technology revolutionises even the most mundane things. No wonder I also ended up in the tech sector as a recruiter. Here, I especially like the synergies that arise across the units and teams. Tech experts benefit from each other's specialisations and combine their ideas to optimise products. As a recruiter, I dive into this world and enjoy the conversations with applicants, my regular exchange with hiring managers, the joint design of the range of requirements for advertised positions, as well as the planning of the application process and its content. Since recruiting has a high priority at Trusted Shops, our work, expertise and opinion are highly valued by all colleagues.

People Business Partner

As a People Business Partner at Trusted Shops, I experience an incredibly varied work environment with constantly new tasks that challenge me and are fun at the same time. In addition to our Tech Unit, which I support intensively and develop further together with the managers in the unit, last year, for example, I supported the founding of our Italian branch from the HR side. The Spanish market also plays a role in my day-to-day work – so the internationality is not only reflected in our customer portfolio, but also in everyday life in the People Department. Together with our People colleagues, we are involved in exciting projects ranging from the creation of an internal leadership academy to new concepts around New Work. As you can see, there's something going on here – join in!
