About the role
GVI is looking for a highly personable, proactive, capable HR and recruitment professional to join our People Team. This is an incredible opportunity for someone passionate about HR and recruitment, but who is also keen to work for a global, purpose-driven organization on a mission to make a positive impact around the world!
The People Team is currently a multifaceted team of two, who take care of everything people related across our global team including HR, recruitment, onboarding, office management, well-being, training, development, and ongoing engagement. This role will be dynamic and fast-paced, with no two days alike, and will demand the ability to multitask, innovate and be highly flexible.
Our People Team is currently based in Cape Town, as part of the Central Support office, however, is currently working predominantly remotely, therefore this role has the ability to be based anywhere in South Africa.
Role and responsibilities:
Assisting with traditional HR administrative duties (compliance, performance management, administration, etc.)
Full life cycle recruitment of varying global roles. This includes: writing and posting job ads, screening CVs, doing first interviews, managing the candidate experience, reference checking, and contracting
Ensuring our Applicant Tracking System and HR database is up to date and organized (filing/auditing/pulling reports, etc.)

As an organisation, we know that welcoming a broad range of people with unique identities makes us a more powerful workforce and we are committed to evolving our diversity, equity and inclusion practice.
Professional skills and experience:
We’re not interested in empty perks like having a coffee culture. We do have coffee – if you join our central team in Cape Town, you could find yourself roped into coffee and snack challenges if you visit the office, but you could just as easily be taking your morning coffee at Roots cafe, high in the mountains of northern Thailand if you work on a base. Here’s what our global team enjoys:
