Who are we looking for?

We are looking for someone with solid generalist HR experience and a track record of commercially-oriented solutions that are fit for purpose.

You will be able to deliver effective, impactful and engaging communication and will be someone with great interpersonal and influencing skills with colleagues at all levels.

If you can act on your own initiative and work autonomously whilst taking responsibility for decisions, finding practical solutions in tight time frames then this could be a great job for you.

You will be someone who constantly seeks to improve HR and Operational ways of working, supporting and managing cross functional change management programmes with measured outcomes and milestones.

Up-to-date and in depth knowledge of current and upcoming employment law would be particularly useful and you should be CIPD qualified. People management experience is also desirable.

Our client is not hung up on industry experience but if you have worked with blue collar workers and understand the HR challenges of this type of environment, that would be useful.

We really want someone that is passionate about what they do. This is a new role and you will be changing how things are done. Because of this we really want someone that can take colleagues at all levels with them. You will have to deal with ambiguity and be resilient to push things through.  But you will have fantastic colleagues in a business that is truly receptive to change. You just need to be great at winning hearts and minds.

This is not a siloed role and you will gain exposure at all levels and get to understand the business and what makes it tick. You will have to work hard here but it will be incredibly rewarding.

Sound good?
