Job Title: Head of HR

Location: East London (Near City Airport)

Contract type: Permanent, Full-Time

Salary: £65-80k per annum + benefits


We think that this business is unique…

Working for a medium sized business with a small HR team means great exposure to all things HR, turning your hand to muck in and really help.  Our client has been providing a range of interesting services to clients operating in the property sector for a number of years and they are offering a super place to work.

They are proud of their past, but are more excited about the future. You will be joining them at an exciting time: focusing on transforming the culture and developing the HR function and how the HR service is delivered. They want to raise their game so they can continue to innovate, compete, and remain relevant to their customers.

HR is still evolving in this business so this is an exciting time to join and drive that change. They are looking for a strong operational Head of HR that has experience of both blue and white collar workers. They are not looking for ground-breaking HR initiatives, they need someone that knows what good looks like and can put that in place.

You will lead the Human Resources function with a team of 2-3 people to create and implement a people strategy in support of the business objectives, whilst leading on all operational HR activities, ensuring the appropriate compliance, and, providing insight and advice to the CEO and Executive Team. 

Does this sound like you?

We are looking for a hugely talented, passionate and tenacious individual who thrives in a fast-paced challenging environment. The right person needs a proven track-record of operating at a strategic level and partnering at a senior level but we also need someone that can roll their sleeves up and get things done. 

We’re looking for someone who is commercially focused and importantly, very numerate that is looking for a role that they can really get stuck into. It’s all about attitude, passion and being up for an exciting challenge.

You will be CIPD qualified with solid experience of operating in a Head of HR/HR Leader role. We are looking for people with the ability to influence and challenge decisions at all business levels whilst building great relationships.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for someone with well-rounded generalist HR experience with an emphasis on applying commercially-oriented solutions across ER, Reward, Talent & Development and Recruitment (amongst others areas).

You will be able to deliver effective, impactful and engaging communication and will be someone with great interpersonal and influencing skills with colleagues at all levels. You will also be someone that has the ability to push back as required but who also has the emotional intelligence to provide your team with a bit of TLC!

You will be someone who constantly seeks to improve HR and Operational ways of working, supporting and managing cross-functional change management programmes with measured outcomes and milestones.

Up-to-date and in-depth knowledge of current and upcoming employment law would be particularly useful and you should be CIPD qualified. You will have enough ER nous to know when to settle and when not to. This is why some blue-collar experience would be preferable.

We really want someone that is passionate about what they do. You will be changing how things are done and providing fresh ideas.

Sound good?
