Vahura, the premier legal + governance talent search and strategy consulting firm in India, is looking for an internal HR specialist who is committed, curious and creative. We’re particularly interested in talking to people who think deeply about culture—how to build institutions and workplaces in a way that brings out the best in individuals and teams. ‘Mahaul’ is a Hindi/Urdu word that refers to a vibe, an atmosphere, the way the wind is blowing. We’re looking for someone who can intuitively catch the ‘mahaul’ and build on it in a way that improves talent retention, job satisfaction and well-being.
Vahura was founded in 2011, and aims to creatively catalyse the advancement of India’s legal, compliance, tax, finance and governance domains. We are a group of lawyers, chartered accountants, recruiters, advisors and changemakers driven by a common purpose: to transform the domains of executive search, board search, marketing intelligence, advisory and mentorship. We are rooted—we strive to be the Number 1 search firm focussed on legal and governance in our region. We are ambitious—as Indian ventures and capital become global, we want to help them succeed internationally. We consistently strive to live up to our five values: ownership and responsibility, client focus, trust, agility and innovation. For more on our values and culture, here.
