Our client is a very well established brand name in the retail sector and part of one of the largest trading groups in the world. Over 6000 people work in the UK across a network of 30 stores selling high quality products at competitive prices. The business operates a decentralised model - people are given a high level of responsibilty and excellence is encouraged throughout the business.
An exciting opportunity at the very successful Aberdeen store has arisen for a confident, commercial HR Manager. The role can be performed on either a full or part time (c25 hours) basis, although some flexibility would be expected around store opening hours on occasion.
A background in retail is helpful but not essential, however it is vital that you have a keen interest in retail operations and in understanding how the business ticks.
Your remit will include absence management, disciplineries and grievances, recruitment and retention and reviewing policies and procedures. A significant element of your role will be around training and development and succession planning for future stars within the business.
In addition to your generalist HR responsibilities, you will also coach staff on sales and customer service, therefore contributing directly to the store's success.
The organisation encourages a sense of ownership within its employees and this is a chance for a driven, commercial HR professional to reap success and recognition in a very fulfilling role.
