Are you a broad Talent specialist? Does taking on a newly created role appeal?

Our client is a rapidly growing Manchester based fintech business. Employing c500 people across the UK, it's disrupting a traditional broker-led model by enabling customers direct access to its low-cost, award-winning, online investment platform.

Having made several high-profile acquisitions over the last couple of years, it is ready for further integrations and to take its business to the next stage. From a talent and capability perspective this means we're looking for someone to come in and take a holistic view of the future state of the business.

Reporting into the HRD, and as part of a small and well-functioning team, you'll deliver the capability agenda by translating the organisation's ambitious vision into a deliverable people strategy with a focus on continued innovation and change. You will review its current and projected organisational design and devise a build, buy or borrow strategic approach from C-suite down which can deliver against changing talent requirements.

We are looking for a well networked individual, who can bring creativity, new ideas and is "modern" in their thinking. You will translate whatever sector experience you bring into a fast paced, edgy, fintech environment. From a cultural perspective, our client is an entrepreneurial, fair and transparent business and this role will suit someone aligned to those values.

Self-confident, persuasive, collaborative and used to working with ambiguity and at pace, you will have the gravitas and credibility to be quickly valued by the senior management team. What is important is an ability to challenge the norm, be innovative, commercial and bravely creative.

Quite simply, this is a unique opportunity to play a senior role in a highly professional, fast moving organisation which is going to be a market changer. We'd love to hear from you!
