Striving for excellence in all they do, they are looking to recruit a HR Business Partner to support their existing and emerging international markets, based from the UK Head Office in Bedford.

Having had a busy few years on the transformation and change front including M&A activity, they are now in BAU mode as they look to grow and increase their global footprint.

What is the role?

HR is well established here and the team has evolved to meet the changing needs of the business. This role has been created to provide support to their smaller international client groups where currently they rely on 3rd party support (locations include Finland, Germany, Morocco, China and Japan). These business areas are likely to grow so it's critical they have the support of an experienced and commercially focused HRBP who can keep them connected to Group and ensured they are well represented.

Some locations have a small HR presence so the HRBP - International will manage, coach and support where relevant, along with working closely with the Country Leads to ensure People priorities are identified and addressed, along with being aligned to the group plan. Where growth is expected you will work with local advisors to facilitate recruitment, contracts etc and be a coach and advisor to the Leadership teams. You will also be responsible for the roll out of Group initiatives, ensuring comms are consistent and culturally appropriate per market.

Who are we looking for?

This is unique opportunity to work for an international group, with direct responsibility for an international client group which is incredibly diverse. For this role we are looking for a HR Business Partner who has experience working in a group model with international exposure. The role will be based out of the UK so you must be comfortable building relationships remotely, along with being happy to travel perhaps on a monthly basis (most likely European travel). Ideally you will have worked in a highly technical environment related to engineering or similar.

On offer for this role is a salary of c£65k, plus bens which include a competitive pension and bonus scheme. They also take a hybrid approach which is roughly 3 days office / 2 days home but requires flex based on business need.

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
