HR Operations Manager
HR Operations Manager
This is a permanent contract.
We think that this is a great business to work for…
Our client is an ambitious and successful SME. Within their specialist sector they have a strong reputation built on quality and customer intimacy. They have a range of prestige clients many of whom are leading names in their own markets.
The business supplies high value capital goods – but much of their profit is derived from after-sales support and service contracts. That makes long term relationships critical to both customer retention and business growth.
What will be keeping you busy?
This role will report directly to the Finance Director and works closely with the Executive Team to embed key people processes within the business. This is a truly commercial HR role so you must be able to align your own priorities with those of the top team.
You will be tasked with driving performance management across the business. Our client is creating a culture where achievements and development needs are openly discussed via regular one-to-ones. Your role will include ensuring the frequency of meetings and that the agreed actions are implemented and progress monitored.
This is a generalist HR post where you will be expected to roll your sleeves up and ensure that the basics are done brilliantly well. You will get to work on some interesting projects from time to time but this must not be at the expense of making sure that the day to day HR activities are delivered to a high standard.
Based in Leicestershire you will travel occasionally to other sites in the East Midlands.
Who are we looking for?
Someone with real attention to detail and a commercial focus. This is not a ‘fluffy’ HR job. Your success will be measured by how effective HR is in supporting managers to drive organisational success. Your CV will therefore need to show how you have helped previous employers to improve key people and commercial metrics.
We are not looking for specific industry experience, but you do need the gravitas to be credible with the leadership team. This role might suit a good generalist who has combined HR roles with experience gained in business/operations roles. Above all, you will be tough and resilient with an ability to have critical conversations when necessary.
This is a great business with great people that love what they do. If you are professional but also able to work with good humour, you will fit right in!
A business that will help you develop your career…
This business is passionate about people – they have won the Investors in People Gold award – and you can be sure the MD will see your continued development as a priority. If you progress to interview and assessment you will quickly discover that cultural fit is as important to our client as technical ability.
