  • Provide advice and support to the business during restructures and other areas of organisational change 

The experience we're looking for in a candidate

  • CIPD qualified
  • Experience of working with a ‘blue collar’ work force
  • Commitment to customer satisfaction through the achievement of quality
  • Extensive experience in a fast paced, national and multi-site business
  • In depth working knowledge and understanding of Employment Law
  • Can demonstrate a good understanding of Employee Relations and TUPE transfer
  • Excellent verbal communication skills with the ability to hold challenging conversations
  • Hands on, operational approach with the willingness to get involved in a wide range of business activities 

The personal attributes we're looking for in a candidate

  • Desire to understand and promote the Company purpose, vision, values and culture
  • Trustworthy and ethical approach, exercising discretion where required 
  • Organised, structured and professional, with a passion for excellence 
  • Flexibility, resilience and the ability to influence and build relationships at all levels
  • Proven HR management skills with a proactive approach to achieving results 
  • Commitment to the provision of excellent customer service
  • Proven influencing and negotiation skills to both internal and external stakeholders 

This role is a 6 month contract position, therefore we are open to discussing a rate dependant upon the candidates previous skills and experience.
