This is a 3 month interim assignment. This role will support the business across EU offices. 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.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Leading on recruitment end-to-end for business operations vacancies, and supporting the offer process for investments positions (recruitment is a key part of this role so candidates must be confident in this area)
  • Manage ER cases inclusive of performance management, and disciplinaries / grievances when they arise (which is rarely)
  • 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:

  • Have worked in an operational generalist position within financial services

  • Ideally be educated to degree level or equivalent
  • Be comfortable overseeing the work of an HR Assistant and be experienced in mentoring and developing junior team members
