What can we tell you about this fantastic client?

This is a genuinely lovely place to work within a business that is part of a very large global organisation but retains a family oriented and collaborative approach.

They are looking for someone to come and look after a number of HR projects on a contract basis but there is a good possibility that there might be a permanent role later on.

The HR Consultant will work closely with members of the HR & Communications team, internal and external stakeholders, to lead, drive and implement the following projects:

  • HR Governance – carry out an audit of current HR practices including data management and implement practices to ensure compliance with core governance requirements including GDPR
  • HR/Employee System – carry out a review of the existing HR system and liaise with the vendor to create improvements, digitize core processes and reduce the amount of manual HR admin tasks
  • HR Procedures Manual – create a HR procedures manual to document core processes, using RACIE (Responsible, Accountable, Consulted, Informed, Endorsed - referring to approval system of documents) to identify specific responsibilities 
  • HR Policies & Staff Handbook – review and update HR policies and create a more efficient and user-friendly staff handbook
  • Salary Benchmarking – drive a companywide salary benchmarking project to ensure salaries are aligned and adjusted with market practices
  • Other Projects – to actively participate in other HR projects as and when required

Who are we looking for?

You will be an HR generalist with experience of overseeing a variety of HR projects. This would suit someone that has an excellent grounding within HR and can see opportunities to make improvements to how things are done. You will be a genuine people person with excellent stakeholder engagement experience with a strong focus on delivery and meeting deadlines. We are looking for a relationship builder that is passionate about HR. You may have been working as an HR Advisor or Junior HR Business Partner – the project experience is important.

Skills and experience required:

  • 5 to 10 years generalist HR experience in a medium to large global organisation
  • Project management experience – formal PM training is not required
  • Skilled at challenging and improving HR practices
  • Proven ability to overcome obstacles and deliver results

  • Forward thinking, creative and innovative mindset
  • Relationship builder and ability to influence and engage across stakeholder groups
