Change … transformation … modification … - all common words used in today’s marketplace as we see organisations continuously evolve and adapt to industry, economic and environmental challenges.

The demand on employees - colleagues - associates - partners - is increasing every day, and recognising that each is unique, it’s critical that organisations strive to see and hear them – to truly connect and understand what makes them tick.

Trailblazers who have got this right have intentionally created a culture that they desire;  rewarding behavioural habits that break down barriers, encourage creativity and collaboration, creating a platform for them to translate their organisational story into an honest and transparent strategy.  Shaping the right environment to share information, solve problems and create new solutions is at the heart of everything they do – yes it keeps their people informed – but more importantly their people feel valued and engaged – it’s an enjoyable experience.

Feeling connected – making a difference - understanding how your contribution fits into the bigger picture, and the impact it has on organisational success.  This will be a strong foundation for the successful candidate stepping into this newly created role; to help people understand their purpose – to see and feel the impact of their contribution to organisational success.    

Our client is a market leading brand in the retail sector with operating companies across multiple countries.  To deliver their ambition to become No1 in market they are currently working through a period of organisational transformation; investing in working together better to take advantage of their scale and maximise their effectiveness – to ultimately better serve their customers.

To drive common values and purpose supporting the Group’s one way of working, this is a newly created role that will develop the Group’s first Colleague Experience strategy.  Working in close partnership with a super talented Head of Communications, and broader peer group of HR Directors and Specialists, we are looking for a natural collaborator to navigate and influence effectively across this global matrix.

If you are a trailblazer within Colleague Experience / Employee Engagement with a compelling story of success, we would love to hear from you.  We are looking for a specialist that innately conceives new and progressive ideas – and can demonstrate how to translate broad thinking capability into tangible solutions that deliver impressive results.  It’s imperative that you’ve reached across multiple countries – mindful of varying cultures – receptive to time zones – and agile to their individuality.  This is an exciting opportunity – it’s greenfield – you can make it your own – and therefore it will suit a specialist that enjoys rolling their sleeves up at ‘build’ stage.
