Reporting to the Managing Director the Head of HR will be expected to:
*Partner with the senior management team and Regional Directors to understand the whole business and advise on all people matters

If you've worked in a rapid growth business previously and can demonstrate you've moved the HR function from being operational and functioning to adding significant value, influencing senior leaders, championing culture and engagement and contributing to the success of the business then this could be an ideal role to step into. You'll be able to coach and mentor senior managers and you'll have a real business partnering style where you can tailor your style and approach to any audience, offering credible and commercially sound people advice.
You will need to be a people person, used to working in a growing SME business (ideally with a blue collar workforce including sub-contractors) and be able to take on board differing viewpoints and come up with creative solutions to further improve business success. Occasional travel in and around the midlands will be required.
Enjoy the strategic and the operational blend? Want to really play a part in driving a business forward? Still have plenty of room to develop? Then don't hesitate to get in touch about this exciting Head of HR role.
