Client Details

You will have extensive experience in a manufacturing or operational setting.

You will have experience in a manufacturing or operational setting, where you have worked to increase efficiencies across policy, people and strategy.

develop an organisation from a HR perspective,

drive improvement and add value across the HR spectrum,

understand the commercial / financial drivers that underpin decision making,

use data and logic to form structured proposals and arguments,

influence and communicate with a wide range of colleagues across operational assets and central functions,

design and draft internal group communication,

build relationships across the above groups as well as with external parties such as trades unions or industry HR professionals,

navigate through complex ER/IR situations within a unionised environment,

manage pay negotiations and remuneration review; introduce new ideas having considered the implications of your strategy across the wider Group,

quickly understand complex HR legal issues and identify and rank solutions,

effectively deliver organisational and contractual change,

present HR concepts with a balance of practical and theory,

train, coach and develop colleagues throughout the organisation
