We are pleased to partner a leading Luxury Goods giant with market presence spanning across more than 150 markets and boasting approximately 20 brands that feature in the global 100 list. Despite the disruptions brought about Covid19 previously, the Asia-Pacific (APAC) business in particular has witnessed strong recovery in the past 18 months. Their net sales for instance stood at more than +10% for the first half of 2023. As a result of the bounce back, they are looking to expand the Compensation & Benefits (C&B) team and appoint a Regional HR Controller (circa. $144k base per annum) who is Finance-trained to support talent attraction/retention strategies. This role will be based in Singapore.
Reporting into the Regional Director of C&B your responsibilities are two-fold. First, you will participate in the budgeting and execution of Payroll and Benefits associated costs for the markets under your purview. This includes identifying gaps between forecast and reality, and following up with relevant advice to the affected stakeholders. Second and relatedly, you will drive grounded insights through the use of reliable and high-quality data streams. This means ensuring data on the Workday system are maintained sufficiently well enough to enable the generation of accurate reports and visualisations. In sum, you will collaborate with colleagues based in Human Resources, Finance and other related divisions to make recommendations that support sound business decisions.
The successful candidate should ideally possess finance analytical proficiency (including advanced Excel skills), especially with regards to partnering the HR streams on budgeting, cost analyses etc. Excellent interpersonal communication skills are non-negotiable due to the client-facing nature of the role. Undoubtedly, demonstrated expertise in HR and Finance systems (particularly Workday Adaptive) and reporting tools (Tableau, Power BI) will be highly favoured.
