Reporting to a Senior HR Manager and working closely with the Regional Director the position covers all operational HR activity to include, providing expert advice and guidance to directors and line managers on best practice, complex case work, planning, management and support on consultation activities. You will support and coach line managers on capability performance and sickness absence and will ensure effective employee relations matters such as: probationary reviews, disciplinary, grievance investigations are dealt with. You will be a key point of contact when it comes to people, policy and process improvement and support the HR Director to implement company-wide change and ensure the HR strategy is delivered across these two offices.
