My client, an exciting and rapidly expanding entrepreneurial start-up business is now seeking a truly exceptional HR professional to join their team.

As HR Manager operating in this strategic and hands-on role, this is an incredible opportunity to work alongside the regional HR Director to build the European HR function from scratch and act as a steward of culture. You will support teams across Europe through the development and provision of a full cycle Human Resources service and play a critical role in developing and executing people initiatives, providing great employee support and driving HR functional excellence and process improvement.

Ideally you will already have experience of operating in a high growth, start-up environment, and have been intimately involved in the establishment of an HR function. More importantly, you will thrive when actively engaged with employees across levels, whether coaching or gathering ideas and feedback to nurture the evolution of the people function and processes. As a naturally curious, passionate individual you'll be excited by a "building" role where you will both roll up your sleeves and operate strategically.

In return you can expect to become an integral part of a team that really cares for each other, works harmoniously together and shares in the values and belief that they will be the best in the world at what they do - all whilst having a shed load of fun along the way!

To be considered for this fantastic role you will require:

A truly hands-on approach with the ability to successfully monitor the "pulse" of the organisation to ensure a high level of employee engagement

Experience of successful delivery in a high growth, complex and rapidly changing work environment

A high level of enthusiasm as a team player with a strong drive to create a positive work environment

A natural comfort zone around a high volume workload and a genuine willingness to roll up your sleeves at any time

A strong solutions focus and be comfortable working in a fast-paced environment which demands strong deliverables and the ability to quickly assess situations and drive appropriate solutions

A natural bias for action, a strong work ethic and the desire to achieve excellence

The ability to build and effectively manage interpersonal relationships at all levels of the company and influence at the senior level of the business

Solid understanding and experience of all of the disciplines within HR, including Reward, Talent Acquisition, Learning & Development, HR Systems, HR Operations, Employee Engagement, and Organisational Development

A passion for creating and driving innovative HR solutions and process improvement

A completed Bachelor's Degree from an accredited university

Experience that demonstrates continuous progression in your HR career to date

Proven experience at HR management level or beyond and of building HR policies/programs from scratch

In-depth knowledge of employment law and HR best practices for the UK and Germany and/or France
