Main focus of the role/background of the individual

  • Working with MDs and their direct reports to understand talent issues/needs
  • Org design experience - know the approach to help organisations shift from one point to the next
  • Able to facilitate independently - i.e. can run sessions with teams and engage the workforce effectively and at short notice
  • Must be open to travel to other offices on an as needed basis


  • Able to spot opportunities and create momentum quickly. Personality that can sell things in with people and get them excited
  • Drive projects from the ground up. Person will need to be creative and drive these projects themselves on a design level, then bring in wider teams during implementation stage.

  • HR generalist experience a must
  • No specific industry experience required, though preferably come from a tech/start-up environment
