HR Business Partner Part time, 22.5 hours a week! £50,000-£60,000 FTE Permanent Farnborough

HR Business Partner, Part Time. 3 days per week

A typical working day?

You will wake up prioritising what energises you first thing each day, this could be a run or your favourite coffee. By the time you log into Teams or come into the office on the train, you will be clear on your work priorities for the day and who you are going to collaborate with. This could be the MD, the HRD, the GMT or some of the HR team. You may check in with a manager to discuss a recruitment plan to attract more diversity or someone who wants to talk about their career development. You will attend a GMT team meeting and update them on progress with your people goals. You only have a few weeks left to complete your part of the B-Corp project so that needs some attention. You also have to deputise for the HRD at the board meeting next week, so you need to prepare for that.

Expected Outcomes - how will you be helping to create unforgettable adventures?

Your detailed understanding of the Explore customer experience will influence and impact their commitment and aspiration to be a purpose led employer with B-Corp status.
You'll wisely manage your time in the business and on the business, creating best in class experiences for all potential, current, past and future team members, and proactively (and fiercely, energetically and passionately) protect their culture and watch for and manage blindspots. You'll artfully balance the health, wellness and wellbeing of every team member with the protection of the business as a whole.
Your highly functioning relationship with the other HRBPS, Learning and Development Manager and Senior Shared Services Manager will get stuff done, produce fresh ideas, initiatives and data insight.
A deep passion, curiosity and understanding of how HR can make employee's lives better will translate in to people initiatives and brand immersive experiences that bring to life Explore's values - Be Better Than Yesterday.
Your people solutions will be commercial, pragmatic, process-light and relevant, trusted because of your excellent relationships with the Explore and HR team. Communication of these will be frequent and interesting - they don't do boring!
Your people plan will deliver their people goals and priorities, developed with the Managing Director and GMT, with a strong focus on our engagement drivers, B-Corp accreditation and cultural change resulting from hybrid working.
You will be a sounding board with the leadership teams when it comes to people, be it through coaching or providing, practical advice.
Your talent acquisition and on-boarding experiences will bring more diverse talent into Explore, who will thrive and bring a new lens to their culture.

Am I the right person for this role?

You are building your career in HR and have a clear vision about where you want to go.
Brand success is important to you, you love what you do and want to work for a brand that has a bigger purpose than pure profit.
