Henlee Resourcing is working with this Global Organisation with a base in London to recruit a talented HR Consultant initially for 12 months who will work predominately with one of their major clients.

You will support the delivery of the full spectrum of HR service delivery for the Client, ensuring that the company has an engaged workforce in the right place, at the right time, with HR structures and services in place to meet the needs of the growing population within the context of the UK employment legislative framework.

The Client is a modern, progressive firm, where the team thinks differently and has built a culture where individual skills and personalities can shine through.
