My Lancashire based client is looking to appoint a UK HR Lead.

You will be part of the UK Leadership Team and a key member of the international HR Team.

As HR Lead for the UK you will develop & implement the UK People Strategy and provide expert guidance to leaders in supporting the Business in the UK and as the role/business evolves through continued expansion, the European region. The role will include:

  • Coaching leaders, working with the SLT to solve people and cultural issues and enabling business change.
  • Providing support to leadership on people change, talent development & attraction and ongoing growth.
  • Partnering with the business and driving Regional talent initiatives.
  • Identifying critical people requirements to achieve business results in relation to training & skills, including development opportunities.
  • Talent planning, recruitment, performance management, employee relations & employee engagement activities.
  • Implementation and continuous improvement of HR processes.
  • Driving organisational effectiveness and enabling business change.
  • Building high performing teams, coaching and mentoring managers.
  • Project management of people related projects and working with the international HR team.

This is a hugely exciting role with the opportunity to play a pivotal role in the expansion and longer term development of the European business, initially focus on the UK only. This is a successful, reputable business and the SLT recognises the importance of engagement, team work and having fun while you work!

To be considered for this role you will be a proven HR Generalist in a Head of HR role or equivalent, with the gravitas & experience to partner & influence the SLT, driving change (including TUPE & restructuring). Some project management experience is also advantageous.

My client is looking for a solutions-focused & commercially astute Head of HR with sound business partnering and relationship-building skills and experience of partnering and coaching a newly formed SLT.

In addition, experience within a complex, matrixed structure and European/international regions and growth is key (experience in the Nordics is especially useful).

Experience within a variety of sectors is helpful – a background within FMCG, Logistics, Manufacturing/Engineering or Construction is key and a mixed ‘blue’ & ‘white’ collar workforce.

This role will suit an individual who enjoys working with autonomy with a blend of hands on and strategy, leading a small team and playing an integral role on the SLT and wider HR team beyond the UK region.

As the UK HR Lead you will need to be a pragmatic individual able to further develop and ‘bed-in’ the UK HR offering in the first instance, before expanding & developing the role & responsibilities into parts of Northern Europe.

Please note: this is a mainly onsite role in Lancashire.

Salary up to £90,000 dep on experience + car + bens.
