People Capability Coach - London based - six figure salary

Have we caught your attention with the title of this advert? It doesn't sound like your normal HR Director role does it? Excellent - that was the plan!

In this newly appointed role, as you'll drive the talent and capability agenda for a hugely successfully and trusted business which leads the way in its sector. A FTSE100 organisation they're highly professional and people centric, employing some of the brightest and best in the industry.

Picture yourself working with a well-respected business which has many of the features of a franchisor-type organisation, but which isn't a franchisor. You'll be working as part of a collaborative and focused Senior Management Team to ensure the organisation provides the products, marketing strategy, tools, infrastructure, support and services to enable entrepreneurial business leaders, to achieve their individual business objectives, many of which are growth focused.

As you would expect in a people business like this, success is down to the franchisee businesses having highly trained and engaged qualified professionals available to deliver to clients' requirements. Recruitment, on-boarding, induction, training, developing, performance management etc. will be key drivers of organisational success.

Opportunities to influence and coach such a diverse group of stakeholders and external business owners on this level are few and far between and your skill set will undeniably be in coaching, talent and capability development with other HR services falling outside the proposition or drawn from within other parts of the wider organisation.

So why are we so excited about this opportunity?

When you meet the Senior Management Team who lead this business, their passion, focus, intellect, dedication and drive for success will impress you too. They're proud of their heritage and reputation yet recognise that the sector in which they operate and the needs of Business owners who they support, and their clients are changing at an unprecedented rate. They're looking for you to bring expertise in developing strategic leadership capability, people capability, talent development, succession, performance management and organisational culture

Who will this role suit? Whatever your background, we're looking for a commercial, customer focused and technically strong HR professional with a passion for Talent and Capability; someone with the experience, gravitas, relationship skills, entrepreneurial flair and intellect to drive the people agenda forward. The ideal candidate is likely to have a business coaching, business psychology or people development background.

Very relevant professional or financial services experience is not essential, although strong candidates might previously have worked with internal business teams and external "franchisees" too.

This role is most likely to be based out of Canary Wharf or London's West End. You'll also need to be comfortable with working in a variety of UK locations developing relationships wherever key staff are based.

What will the business offer in return? Quite simply, the opportunity to be a key SMT member of an award winning and highly successful success story, the opportunity to be part of a business with an ambitious and positive future. The opportunity to truly make your mark.
