HR Manager, 6 months FTC (maternity cover)
This very successful global commodities trader is looking to hire an HR Manager to cover maternity for 6 months.
The role will support the Global HR Director (not based in the UK) and will be responsible for UK HR and a smaller satellite office in the US. A true generalist HR role, you will touch everything from employee relations and performance management to recruitment and workforce planning. You'll also lead and provide guidance to an HR Assistant.
The role will suit a strong all round generalist HR Manager who enjoys the day-to-day variety of operational HR activity. It will also suit someone who has experience of working in an SME type environment and an autonomous or small HR environment.
You will have an approachable, pragmatic and solutions oriented approach to reflect the cultural dynamics of an SME environment.
Previous experience in a trading environment or similar sector would be desirable, but not essential.
