(Jr) Project Manager


About Nova

We are a fast-growing tech startup disrupting the Headhunting Industry. Our mission is to become the agents of the world's 3% of talent: just as sport athletes have an agent, we believe high potentials in business, tech, law or science should have a trusted agent as well who helps them become the best version of themselves.

We are accomplishing this mission by creating a global community which connects high potential individuals amongst themselves and with the best opportunities through an online platform, disruptive events and programs. The key of Nova is precisely the quality of our members, who have to go through a rigorous selection process before being accepted to the network. Our main business line is B2B, with clients such as McKinsey, BCG, P&G, Novartis, Luxottica or Casavo, who we help attract and hire top talent faster and more efficiently than existing solutions.

With the fast growth we are experiencing in Italy, we are looking for a driven Junior Project Manager 🚀 who can manage our headhunting projects E2E, deliver on our digital services with clients as well as design, organize and run amazing events.

As Junior Project Manager in Italy, you will

  • Be in charge of the headhunting projects, managing our technology, clients and taking care of our applicants
  • Be in charge of the design, organization and implementation of amazing events for our clients
  • Run our Talent Relationship Manager tool, helping clients make the most out of their subscription
  • Work with the Talent, Product and Sales teams to develop new products and services
  • Do anything else the day to day requires, as in a startup and we have new things to learn and do every day

As the ideal candidate, you have

  • Skills and abilities to become a Nova member (if you are not one already).
  • Capability to be a great listener with a demonstrated passion for people - you will help our members find their next big career move: you are either a people’s person or you aren’t!
  • Event management - you will be designing and running big events and managing stressful situations.
  • Strong communication skills - you must be able to effectively communicate Nova’s message to our clients and members. You are a natural networker that can engage people in an effective dialogue.
  • Adaptability - since you will be wearing many hats: you are a headhunter, an event planner and a marketer.
  • Attention to detail and great planning skills - it is vital that you are able to understand nuances and that you don’t miss out on details so candidates and clients have the best possible experience.
  • Analytical skills - you are data-driven and passionate for measuring, automating and improving tasks.
  • Great knowledge (or desire to learn) Microsoft Excel / GSheets.
  • The interest to foster a positive culture - we like having fun and enjoy working with each other. You must be willing to come with that same energy and positive attitude every day, and transmit that to the community.
  • Fluency in English, native Italian.
  • Previous experience with digital tools such as Notion, Slack and Zapier (highly valued).
  • Experience in startup or entrepreneurship (highly valued)

What we offer:

  • Network with high-potential individuals and top-tier companies in your everyday job.
  • Innovate by designing and creating new events, new products, and new services.
  • Disrupt an industry with tech and data-oriented solutions.
  • Work in an amazing office in the city center with flexible conditions.
  • Learn and develop with a super talented global team of Novas.
  • A lot of responsibility from day 1 and opportunity to rotate across our European offices.
