Job Details

We are looking for somebody who is a "can do" / pragmatic generalist who possesses excellent interpersonal relationship building skills. Ideally you will be MCIPD qualified but it's your experience and approach that is of most importance. As mentioned above, the role will be mostly site based with c. 4 out of 5 days based onsite.

If you are looking for a highly challenging role in an extremely progressive and well-respected organisation in its specialism and possess the above competencies, we are keen to hear from you.
