Job Role Summary

We are the largest publicly traded international oil and gas company in the world, using technology and innovation to help meet the world's growing energy needs. We hold an industry-leading inventory of resources and are one of the world's largest integrated refiners, marketers of petroleum products and chemical manufacturers.

Our HR Advisor position at Fife Ethylene Plant (FEP) offers a great career development opportunity for a HR professional seeking a diverse and highly influential role. The role is the only HR position located at FEP so it is one of variety and challenge, but this also makes it a great opportunity to build relationships with the Plant Management Team and be a highly effective and influential business partner. The position is supported virtually by a HR Supervisor and HR Business Service Centres.

The Plant is a 24/7 operation, with five shift teams supported by a day working team of maintenance technicians and engineering professionals. This range of roles, working patterns and operational context presents a proactive HR professional with unrivalled variety and the opportunity to make a real impact within a multinational organisation.

We would welcome applications from both experienced HR Business Partners and HR Advisors, aspiring to make their next career step into such a role.
