You will create an environment that will be a employer of choice for future employees and one which is better able to recruit, retain and develop its people. You will be the guardian of the People Strategy delivering key areas including performance management, recruitment and HRIS reviews. Supported by two HR Business Partners you will drive the people strategy across the organisation upskilling Managers and offering HR support and guidance to the CEO and additional senior leadership team. You will manage the HR partners with the Senior Leadership Team (SLT) and other key stakeholders across the organisation ensuring that all HR policy and procedures are up to date and in line with key employment laws. By driving a best practice approach you will ensure the HR and Facilities team members provide the appropriate support to all employees.

To be successful in this role you will have worked as a experienced HR generalist who will have some direct line management experience, you will have worked in a similar sized business of 100- 200 headcount.
