Ok so I could start this job vacancy with something like - delighted to be working with our market leading client - a key player in their niche service sector blah blah blah.

But I'm not going to - yes I'm delighted to be working with them, but more importantly keen to unearth the "right" candidate profile for this Head of HR so here goes……

The business in question is part of a very much larger parent group but operates in a stand-alone manner using some processes from the parent group, however they adapt processes to enable them to work at pace. That takes me onto the next point the pace is very fast almost frenetic at times; and the culture is very SME in feel (c.200 employees). Having reached a pivotal point in their evolution, they seek a Head of HR to help craft their journey & navigate the landscape going forward.

Working closely with the CEO & leadership team & leading a small but perfectly formed HR team; as Head of HR you will be the eyes and ears of the organisation assessing the good & bad of the existing HR practice & innovating to deliver an HR service that truly enables the business, drives productivity and engages employees - again all at pace.

With a backdrop of constant change, transition and ambiguity, this Head of HR role will influence, design & execute effective people solutions. Tactical areas for focus include reward, organisation design, EVP, communication & HR systems.

Considering the above, this business seeks a Head of HR who thrives (and can survive) in a VUCA environment, knows what good HR looks like and constantly looks to innovate & be contemporary in their approach to HR. Likely previous experience is from within a highly commercial & fast paced change environment. Delivery and proven service within an SME is highly preference.
