HR Business Partner

We’re looking for an experienced People Business Partner to join us on the Holiday Extras campus and become part of our Airparks People team.

Our approach is always to be as proactive as we can whilst solving problems in new ways, bringing fresh ideas and always looking at things from our own unique perspectives.  

We want our Business Partners to work closely with the leadership and management teams in order to develop a people agenda which supports the achievement of the organisation’s objectives. Design and deliver tailored people activity, always ensuring that people considerations are always front-of-mind.

As your client group is spread across multiple sites in Birmingham and Luton, you’ll be an expert in building strong relationships remotely as well as happy to travel very regularly to the sites.   

Role Responsibilities:

  • Leading activity with and for the People Team in delivering people and HR related initiatives and projects, both strategic and operational
  • Line management responsibility and development of the Airparks People Team, currently a team of two
  • Provide significant and senior level advice and guidance on employment law, in line with Company policies and processes
