Department Info


The Talent Acquisition Team (TA), part of the People Solutions team,  consists of three passionate colleagues who partner with the business to find the right people at the right time with the right competencies all over EMEA. We do this by understanding their needs, by giving advise based on our experience and market data, so that they can take the best possible hiring decisions;
Over the last 5 years, our strategy has evolved from an agency based recruitment model to a multichannel TA approach by expanding our own recruitment activities, networking, employer branding and still collaborating with a limited amount of trusted recruitment partners. We make sure all applicants (external & internal) have a great candidate experience by conducting competency based interviews, giving timely feedback and help in their onboarding. Employer branding is high on our radar: we are constantly looking for new ways to show to the general public that Terumo is a great place to work!
