A highly successful, global Asset Manager is now looking for a HRBP (generalist) to provide a first class HR service for its London and EU offices. The business is currently revamping HR which provides this role with huge opportunity.

The HRBP will be part of a wider HR function but this role will be the sole HR practitioner in the London office so it requires someone that is a self-starter and can work autonomously. The clients you will be supporting are largely Front Office with some Functions as well. They are a high touch group and require a candidate that is used to working very closely with senior level stakeholders who really is their trusted business partner.

The role is generalist and will cover the full HR suite from ER, recruitment, compensation, learning, talent, performance, HR strategy, workforce planning and of course stakeholder management.

This is a great role for someone who is looking for a high visibility role and really wants to be a valued and trusted part of a business.
