Job description

Head of HR - Lancashire - Upto £70,000 plus bens - Permanent

We are looking for a Head of HR who can bring energy, passion and commerciality to this growing SME business. Although a well-established business they have a big growth agenda over the next few years and are looking for their first Head of HR to enable their people to deliver this growth.

Reporting into the MD / Owner, you will be part of the SLT in addition to leading a small team.

The Role

Wearing multiple hats this person will drive brilliant basics in terms of process, policy & systems, but will also have an eye on the big picture around recruitment, culture, development and engagement. They operate in an operational, service-led environment that is highly customer and volume-driven. They are keen to ensure that rather than reacting in the moment to skills shortages and a competitive recruitment landscape, they are positioned as an employer of choice with a strong employer brand and pools of talent to tap into. They are also keen to develop their talent from within, with a solid talent and development framework meaning people can see a supportive career pathway within the business.

While they have established a positive and transparent culture, with good engagement and recognised tools in place they are conscious of how growth and change can affect this and so will look to this person to lead on the continued development of a positive culture where employees are heard and recognised.

The Person

The ideal candidate will have operated at HRBP / Head of level previously, with a particular bias to talent, development and culture but with experience of ER and sound employment law knowledge to complement this. You will have led teams and be comfortable working with senior stakeholders ideally in an SME / owner-led environment. It's preferable to have worked within commercial environments, or be able to demonstrate an exceptional understanding of the impact of HR on business performance.

There is an expectation to be site-based in the main due to the nature of the business and workforce, however, as a member of the SLT you have ownership of your diary and are trusted to manage your time effectively.

If this sounds like you then please send your CV or get in touch to hear more.

Equity, diversity, and inclusion are integral to everything that we do. We are committed to these values and they are central to our mission. We encourage applications from all backgrounds and communities, and we are more than happy to discuss any reasonable adjustments that you may require.
