Reporting to the Head of HR Europe, you'll broadly support the business across EU offices and as well as the responsibilities below, have projects to work on all year round. This position will suit someone that has worked in a similar sized firm, or a small HR team and that is used to 'mucking in' and being very close to the business. It is fast paced, dynamic and a high-touch environment.

  • Manage requests from the business such as for parental leave and flexible working

  • Advise on policy, working with the business to embed best practice

  • Oversee the drafting of documents for European employees, seeking advice where necessary

  • Supervise the work of the HR Assistant in the London team

  • Advise on all mobility cases, keeping up to date on immigration matters affecting the UK & Europe

  • Support annual processes such as appraisals, compensation

  • Ad-hoc projects are constant in the role, and will include regulatory projects such as SMCR, MIFID, GDPR.

Candidates suitable for this position will:
