Head of HR - London - P/E backed - Six figure base salary
Does heading up HR for a medium sized rapidly growing, dynamic P/E backed software business appeal? Do you have the experience and mindset to work with some of the brightest and best in a high-tech client focused business? If so, then read on.
Our client is the undoubted market leader in its niche sector, with an impressive and high-quality FS sector client base. Employing c200 people across the world, this is an exciting time to join the business as it continues to grow both organically and by acquisition.
Not surprisingly for a business of this size and relative youth the focus to date has been about growth and expansion. The HR infrastructure is looking to capitalise on its most important asset, its people and with an experienced leadership team, which know how vital it is that the People strategy is an integral part of the overall organisation strategy, this is where you come in!
They're a fast-moving, innovative, people-centric organisation looking to appoint a similarly agile, curious, versatile individual who is as comfortable at dealing with the day to day operational requirements of performance management, salary reviews, recruitment and HR systems etc as setting the strategic growth agenda.
Their mission is clear; it's all about taking what is already an extremely successful business to the next level by focusing more on its people, their capability, succession and organisational culture.
Why are we so excited about helping them recruit their new HR Director? What's so different about them and this opportunity? The answer is quite simply the People. The leaders who run this business are first rate. They live and breathe their values, of which "Being Humble" is one. Having previously worked in a variety of leading organisations, the leadership team knows "what good looks like" from a People perspective and the "rolling your sleeves up" type of person they want to join their team.
If that's you, then you'll be a commercially focused and technically strong HR professional, ideally with an affinity to working with a technology driven business. Size is important in that you may be experienced in working with large blue-chip organisations and feel now is the time to run your own ship for the first time. You will have the ambition and ability to move into the number one position and be ready for that next step.
Alternatively, you may already be in a number one role, having previously operated as part of an Executive Board in a values driven organisation. This role could provide the opportunity to be part of a P/E backed organisation with a more ambitious and positive future.
What will the business offer in return? Quite simply, the opportunity to be a key member of a market leading global success story which has the appetite, ability and backing to really go places.
