Fast paced, commercial and a great brand. Does this sound like the right place for you?

Our client is looking for a commercial HR Generalist who understands what makes a business tick and can really help drive performance within this well-known business.

This client prides itself on excellence and they are looking for the best HR talent that will help them to achieve great things over the course of this contract.

The team…

This role is with a great team with people that we personally really like. It is not a hard sell from our perspective, candidates that interview with this business tend to want the job.

How you will fit into the business…

Working across the Southern region for the business you will be required to have a strong presence across 5 key sites so the ability to travel to them to be visible is important. They would like you to visit each site at least once per month and these are based in Bedford, Bristol, Exeter, Basingstoke and possibly one other location.  You must be good with people as stakeholder engagement is a requirement of this role. You will work closely with up to 30 stakeholders.

As a generalist HR professional, you will be great at what you do and you will know what great looks like too. There will be a focus on the operational aspects of a HRBP role that cover ER, capability and management development, recruitment and well-being.


You will be expected to work hard but the rewards are worth it and you will get a great name on the CV too. This is a real opportunity to work in one of the best companies in the country that places a massive emphasis on personal development and growth. They will support you to develop your HR career and when you do take your next career steps you will certainly go onto great things.

We are looking for…

We would like to see HR Generalists that have worked in reasonably large complex businesses and also operate at the top of their game. You will have solid business partnering experience. You don’t need to have sector experience but it would certainly help if you have worked in a warehouse or logistics environment where you will have worked with office workers and those on the shop floor.

You will be a good communicator, a real people person and you will be keen to get on and develop your career in HR. On a technical level you will have strong generalist experience and you will be understanding of current and future trends in HR. You must have a practical knowledge of designing, developing and rolling out capability development programmes for managers as the business are keen for line managers to be up-skilled. They want them to be able to handle basic ER work themselves. You should also be able to demonstrate evidence of working at all levels as well as the ability to roll your sleeves up and deliver on the operational aspects of the role are important.

You will be able to handle a large personal workload that requires you to balance the delivery of conceptual work with attention to detail and hands-on delivery. You will be flexible and willing to get out in front of your client groups.

What else can we tell you?

Lots. Send us your CV for this brilliant opportunity and we would love to tell you more.
