We think that this role and this client are a bit special…
We like to work with clients that we would want to work for ourselves. This business is no different. They have a really compelling story to tell and this is an opportunity to join a HR team that adds value to the business in the truest sense. As recruiters, it is our job to make our clients sound good, but we genuinely believe that candidates that meet with this business will want to work for them. This contract role is not a tough sell by any stretch of the imagination.
The HR function in this business is regarded as a trusted and important part of the organisation. You will be looking after a site in Reading for them and working closely with the management team as a trusted advisor on various aspects of HR. You will be given relative creative freedom to implement people-focused initiatives that help an already high-performing organisation to improve both how they do business.
What will be keeping you busy?
Our client, a large organisation based in London and with sites around the country, is looking for a senior HR professional with experience of working with technology focused client groups ideally.
The business is currently bringing in a number of technology hires and they are most of the way through the process of 120 new appointments. They would like you to support line managers with ensuring that the remaining hires are the right fit for the organisation and do not just have the technical skills required to do the job. There are a few tricky niche roles left to hire so some good exposure to talent acquisition would be useful here.
You will be a strong Project Manager with solid generalist HR experience that also focuses around talent management initiatives. For example you will focus on reviewing the induction process, coaching on performance reviews and developing an employee engagement strategy. There will be some employee relations work but this is likely to be minimal.
Who are we looking for?
They need someone that has worked as a HR Business Partner with experience of working with technology client groups. You don’t need to have worked for a technology business but you should have worked with this function within another organisation. You will have solid generalist HR knowledge, as well as extensive project delivery experience.
You will need to be someone that is a self-starter who can prioritise your work effectively and push-back if and when required with your client group. They want someone who is good-humoured, assertive that loves what they do. In return you will get to work on a really interesting contract with a great business and some fantastic colleagues.
