Our aim is to ensure a seamless onboarding for both candidates and companies. We are dedicated to making the process from start to finish a pleasant experience.

Crazy Vegan Extremely bad at Karaoke Grew up with cows & horses as bffs

I was born and raised on a quiet farm up north of Sweden and that made me want to get out and see the world and meet new people. At age 15 i started acting school in Stockholm where i got rid of the shy girl i was before. After high school i worked with sales for 4 years and i think its thanks to the years of acting i was very good at the art of sales. Moved to Greece at age 22 and lived there for a full year and had the time of my life. I have been to almost every country in Europe and also seen parts of Indonesia, Australia and Asia and hoping that I’ve seen the whole world at age 30. Biggest passion is volunteering for homeless animals, protesting against the meat industry and making a difference for the ones we share this planet with !

Our History

Job Squad was founded by a couple of young Danish entrepreneurs with a passion for recruitment and HR. One has years of experience in corporate recruitment, the other is startup obsessed with more than 4 of these young businesses to his name. Both of these young mavericks came together with their shared experiences to create Job Squad, a personal recruitment agency with a corporate twist. Job Squad’s vision was to create career opportunities for Europeans across borders, that will strengthen and develop their personality and career diversity. By breaking down borders and bringing on a wide variety of clients and positions we try to make sure there’s a position for everyone.

In the beginning, Job Squad didn’t have an office or even a set place for everyone to work. In Denmark, we were a part of an incubator office with several other start-ups which provided a very good mentality and space for those working there. Meanwhile, in Malta, we internet-hopped from cafe’s to burger joints, apartments to restaurants and everything in between. The office travelled with us and we simply chased whatever internet connection we could find. We did this for 2 months before finally finding what would be become our new office in Spinola, St Julians.   

The team is split between the two destinations, but with the majority preferring a warmer sunnier climate, the team in Malta is slightly larger. Despite the long distance, the two offices are extremely close and are in constant communication sharing news, updates and candidates to ensure everything is seamless and efficient for both candidates and clients. Every member of the Job Squad is incredibly passionate about recruitment and we always make sure to have fun with everything we do, from the random boyband power hours to group lunches and sing-alongs. We here at Job Squad like to think of ourselves as professionals without the formality, after all, we are here to here to help and make sure both job hunt and placement is as pleasant and seamless as possible.

 

Team info

The team here at Job Squad is incredibly diverse from a wide range of backgrounds and nationalities but none the less, we all have a few things in common. We here at Job Squad all share values which we display in our work ethic and how we deal with both clients and candidates. From a deep-rooted passion for recruitment followed closely by the genuine desire to help others while always being an honest and upfront with steadfast moral values for all of our clients and candidates, to also having fun and injecting humour into everything that we do. The office atmosphere is always warm, light and fun, there’s always music in the office and banter regularly flies from side to the other. We’re always professional but rarely formal.

The office nurtures an atmosphere of self-improvement where certain hours of the week the team put their pens away and turn their phones upside down to learn something new through a book, podcast or an article. Every week on Friday, one member of the team gives a TED talk about what they have learnt and how it helped them personally improve their recruitment skills or themselves in general. We encourage questions and actively look for new methods and techniques to keep us ahead in the industry, the Squad’s different employee backgrounds bring an amazing diversity and way of thinking to the company and that is something always welcome here at Job Squad.
