Job description

Join a fast-growing, listed company with a purpose! We contribute to the fight against climate change by accelerating the transition to electric mobility. Together with over 140 colleagues, we are building the best fast-charging network in Europe. If you also want to make a difference and work in an informal, international scale-up environment, read on!

Fastned's goal is to build a European network of 1000 large fast-charging stations in attractive locations where our customers can charge their electric vehicles with green energy from the sun and wind. We currently operate in six countries (headquarters in Amsterdam, offices in France, Germany, the UK, Switzerland, and Belgium) and are pioneers in a progressive industry. Fastned is growing fast and finding outstanding, talented employees is key to our mission: Providing freedom to electric drivers. Driving freedom. Zero emissions. Zero range anxiety. Zero planning. Electric freedom!

That's why we're looking for a passionate and experienced Talent Acquisition Specialist. We are currently expanding our Talent Acquisition efforts across our European locations and we are adding an additional team member - you - to join our headquarters in Amsterdam, where you will become part of a fun, international and motivated team.

You will get the chance to take ownership over a variety of interesting positions across all our European locations. Upcoming roles for the talent acquisition team include architects, public affairs professionals, location acquisition experts, software engineers, and a wide range of finance-, commercial-, and product-related functions. From juniors to executive level, you’ll always find plenty of variety. Through your work, you will play a key role in helping our teams grow while maintaining our unique scale-up culture. You will have the opportunity to regularly visit the offices in other European countries, next to joining a bunch of fun company outings. Of course we want you to experience EV-life first hand. That's why you get access to our fully electric vehicle fleet in Amsterdam - also for private use, all charging expenses covered.

Electric mobility is new territory for you? No problem! As part of your onboarding, you will participate in a series of exciting workshops where you will learn everything important about electric mobility and fast charging infrastructure. Become part of Fastned and an exciting & fast-growing industry where you will shape the mobility of the future! Grab the opportunity to recruit for green jobs for a cause that you care about, and make a real impact!
