HR MANAGER - Our client based in central North London is an ambitious and growing business with around 90 employees. Their growth plans mean that they are looking for a technically competent, “hands on” HR Manager to lead the development of the HR function.
You should be a highly motivated professional able to work at pace in a changing environment. The business is about to embark on the next stage of growth so this is a chance for someone to formulate ideas and make a difference rather than simply maintaining the status quo. In addition, you will support the leadership team in developing more imaginative approaches to developing culture, values based performance management and employee engagement.
A positive solution-focussed attitude is essential, whilst strong planning skills coupled with the ability to multi task and see projects through to completion will be crucial to success in the role. You must have a strong grasp of HR principles and be completely up to date with relevant employment legislation and regulations.
Supporting the delivery of the organisations’ strategic Goals, you will be a collaborative team player, reporting to the Director of Finance & Operations and managing a part-time HR Officer. You will be working with colleagues who believe passionately in the business and the difference its services make to peoples' lives on a daily basis.
You will be a key member of the wider senior management team devising strategies and the people agenda to help meet strategic goals. This business has undergone significant transformation over the past two years and you will be critical in leading and developing the next stage of organisation development (enabling people, systems and processes) including strong communication and learning and development initiatives.
You will manage day to day HR operations, including payroll and pensions, whilst also taking the lead in identifying and implementing improvements to the HR systems and processes to reflect best practise and legal requirements. Colleague engagement will be a key priority and you will have the opportunity to have a significant impact in this area.
You will be joining our client at a pivotal time in its strategic development and will benefit from working with great colleagues who know that their work is making a difference to many people. Other benefits include a generous salary and contributory pension scheme plus 31 days annual leave in addition to bank holidays.
This is a full-time post but consideration will be made to accommodate a flexible working request at 4 days per week (0.8 FTE with a pro-rated salary).
