Following the appointment of a new HR Board member and an internal assessment of the organisation, they are seeking a high impact and commercial individual to take ownership for all matters relating to Reward & Benefits, designing and executing industry leading reward strategies.

The successful candidate will act as an expert on all Reward matters, advising the senior leadership members on reward best practice, innovation and latest trends to ensure industry leading benefits are implemented across the organisation.

An early priority will be to introduce and roll out new grading/job levelling and pay scale systems across the UK and International markets. The aim is to achieve a more even spread for performance.
  • Build strong and trusted relationships with the Directors and Heads of Business Units – ensuring the reward dimension is fully integrated into the business strategies and plans. Educate the leaders on the reward implications of their business objectives and ensure plans are in place to minimise risks and challenges over the short to medium term.
  • Utilise benchmarking research and pay/salary/benefit surveys to ensure that the reward strategy is competitive and motivational.
