HR Director - S. Manchester - competitive six figure package
Do you want to be the first HR Director of a forward thinking, North West based entrepreneurial business that is transforming strategically, organisationally and culturally? If so, then this could be your ideal career move.
Our client is a market leader in its specialist sector. Employing c140 people in the North West, UK and Europe this is an exciting time to join the business as it moves towards a potential IPO. It is a fast-moving, innovative, people-centric organisation looking to appoint a similarly agile, curious, versatile individual who is as comfortable dealing with the day-to-day operational requirements of performance management, salary reviews, recruitment and HR systems etc as they are in setting the strategic talent and growth agendas.
Not surprisingly for a business of this size and relative youth (founders are still very involved in the business) the focus to date has been about growth and expansion. Since their beginnings they have doubled their performance, year on year. Going forward the organisation is looking to capitalise on its most important asset, its people. It has recognised how vital it is that the People strategy is an integrated part of the overall organisational strategy; this could be where you come in!
Finding the right people to join this entrepreneurial culture is key and this role will appeal to candidates who are looking for a fast moving and evolving organisation. Developing and influencing the corporate culture and attracting and retaining employee talent will undoubtedly be a key element in moving this business forward.
Whatever your sector background, we're looking for a commercially focused and technically strong HR professional, someone with the experience, gravitas, resilience, entrepreneurial flair and intellect to help drive this business forward. ou must have experience of growing similar sized businesses or divisions, ideally on a European scale and at pace. In summary this is a fabulous opportunity to work with an inspiring and entrepreneurial management team, who have great ambitions for the future.
