Coupled with strong entrepreneurial spirit they are now focused on ensuring the business has a strong people strategy which supports the next stage of the journey.

As the first strategic HR hire for this business, the aim will be to join the dots on what currently exists and elevate it, creating a robust, business focused people strategy with a focus on;

  • The evolution of a collaborative, entrepreneurial and growth focused culture where everyone is onboard and there to enjoy the journey
  • Recruitment, the development of an EVP and employer brand which positions them as an employer of choice
  • Retention, considering development opportunities, internal mobility and reward and recognition
  • The development of a HR team which partners the business and supports leaders
  • Partnering the CEO and Leadership team to support their development and that of their teams, working as a sounding board and critical friend
  • Considering cultural nuances within a truly international business, and how a global strategy can be translated locally, with the support of the business and local specialists

This is critical role for the business, and as such they are looking for someone who has done something similar in terms of building the first HR strategy for a high growth SME, and therefore can bring the learns along with fresh ideas. This person will have operated at a senior level in a high growth, entrepreneurial environments previously, preferably within the start up / scaling space.

In return for bringing all this fabulous experience you will be part of a fascinating and exciting business with big plans where you can make a strong, positive impact.

Current UK sites are Midlands and North (with growth planned) so while a remote business it's a strong preference for this person to be based in and around these locations for ease of travel to sites, and these applications will be prioritised, it would also be helpful to have easy access to an international airport as regular international travel will form part of this role.
