If you want to know more about us, here are some facts to start: 

  • Our team is spread around 3 main locations (São Paulo, Berlin and Sofia);

  • Our recruiters and team leaders come from 11 different countries: Argentina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Italy,  England, Hungary, Netherlands, Spain, Ukraine and Russia;

  • We encourage everyone to work together running recruitment and Talent Acquisition projects across locations, learning more about different cultures, gaining experience in multiple set-ups and having fun;

  • As part of the recruiter development program, you can expect to join our exchange program to other SumUp locations :)

As our University Recruiter, you will:

  • Be in charge of university relations, mapping the schools and student associations with whom we should partner, understanding their needs and putting together partnership plans

  • Organise and deliver events on and off campus in order to generate awareness about SumUp but also increase consideration and preference rates among students in target public. We are talking about job fairs, meet ups, lectures, hackathons and panels

  • Manage a great number of stakeholders externally (schools, student associations and suppliers for events and campaigns) and internally (Employer Branding, Marketing, Employee Experience, client areas)

  • Large audiences don't scare you.
