25 hours / week
Bring you expertise to a growing tech company that’s looking to bring its HR function in-house for the first time. Advise the Board on HR strategy. Shape a brilliant business.
Modern life isn’t just fast paced. It tends to be noisy as well, so my client’s specialised noise attenuation systems and solutions have carved out a profitable niche in construction circles.
The company’s grown rapidly, even through the global pandemic, and the time’s come to establish an in-house HR function that can support a word-class workforce.
For the right HR professional, it’s a great opportunity to steer the future direction of a great business, working closely with the Board.
And what’s more, you can do this permanent job part-time.
Provide the HR backbone
The company employs around 140 people, in areas such as technical support, manufacturing, sales and administration. Turnover was £14.5m last financial year, delivering an annual growth rate of 21%.
Specialist HR expertise is currently sourced externally, but the Board wants to incorporate HR more fully into the strategic running of the business.
You’ll work with the MD and Board to develop the company’s HR strategy, ready for the next chapter. This will encompass organisational development, remuneration and well-being.
There’ll also be HR infrastructure – policies, systems, and procedures – to develop, and a role in coaching / advising line managers in good employment practices.
Hours are likely to be around 25 per week, but there’s some flexibility, with the potential to outsource certain tasks to the current external provider.
We’re looking for an experience HR generalist, qualified to at least CIPD level 5. You’ll need specific experience of working in high-growth manufacturing and sales environments.
A strategic background will also be essential, gained advising company boards, but you should also be happy dealing with day-to-day operational HR tasks and issues.
Knowledge of People HR Software or similar would be useful and you’ll be a good team player, who can build productive relationships with managers and staff.
This is one of those rare roles that combine genuine influence with part-time flexibility.
