A multisited, multi £ million leader in their specialist service & consultancy field, this organisation is highly ambitious to grow & scale. Currently they have c.350 employees across 12 locations with coverage across the UK. Through recent changes, including a new senior leadership team & a robust business strategy, they have laser like focus on their business operations to deliver financial performance & achieve their goals. Their people agenda is centric to this; hence the search for a proactive HR Director to support the business from a strategic and operational HR perspective.

Leading the HR agenda & working as a trusted business consultant, you will play a pivotal part of a focused senior leadership team. The role represents a fantastic opportunity to join the business at a pivotal stage of their development, and build on their existing platform with innovative HR practice to support as the business continues to evolve, grow & develop for the future.

This HR Director role requires an inquisitive HR professional to embrace their current operating model, and to subsequently enhance & deliver a contemporary HR service which supports employee needs going forward ; fostering a culture of high performance across a remotely based workforce.

A true HR generalist, you will draw on your expertise, skills & knowledge; however key to your success will be your ability to engage key stakeholders & influence & challenge effectively. A particular strength, will be your ability to operate in a change agent capacity, challenging the status quo and implementing added value HR initiatives especially around engagement, leadership capability, organisation effectiveness and performance. A very real issue within their business is to attract "in demand" scarce skillsets & retain this talent, alongside growing their own talent which delivers high performance.

Commercially astute and bottom line focused, you will use your highly honed coaching skills to build credible relationships in which you will initiate & facilitate positive change. This role will appeal to an HR professional that has worked in a true HR consultant capacity; engaged with stakeholders to understand business issues and delivered innovative & insightful business solutions. It's a busy role within a complex, multi-sited global business structure, and previous expertise of such an environment would be an advantage. Due to the business coverage across the UK, there will be UK travel associated with this role; although you have full autonomy to plan this accordingly.

This role represents an excellent development opportunity to consolidate your knowledge, and advance your career to the number one HR role within an ambitious business.

My client requires this role to commence as soon as possible, thus applications from individuals who are immediately available or available at short notice are highly desirable.
