HR Director - North East - Six figure salary plus bonus etc

Are you interested in becoming the next HR Director for a market-leading food brand that's revolutionising its sector and making a positive contribution to the environment? If so, then this could be the opportunity you've been waiting for.

For over 35 years our client has been leading the way into healthier eating for its customers as well as reducing its environmental impact. The organisation has a strong purpose, and a motivated and loyal workforce, however it needs to respond more rapidly to change and there's no place for complacency!

We're helping them recruit a new HRD to take them to the next stage of national, European US and global growth as well as expansion into new product and service offerings. It's an exciting time to be joining!

The successful candidate will partner the executive leadership team to achieve the planned growth. From a strategic perspective, there's a need to ensure the organisation is transformed and restructured to meet changing requirements, so we're looking for someone with a strong track record in transforming organisations in growth mode.

Leading a small HR team, the new HRD will lead a new approach to organisational design and developing a consistent culture which truly embeds the organisational purpose. They will drive enhanced operational performance, and shape talent, capability and engagement solutions which will be key to success.

The ideal candidate will be a highly influential, commercially astute, and credible HR professional. They will be a confident, resilient and flexible individual with strong business acumen and a successful track record in commercial HR business partnering. They will be an excellent relationship builder with a collaborative approach and have an exceptional focus on operational excellence.

Experience of transforming a food manufacturing business with a complex and varied supply chain would be necessary.

The successful candidate will be based at Head Office (south of Middlesborough) and be comfortable with regular national (and some international) travel.

If this sounds like you then we'd love to hear from you. This really is a once in a lifetime opportunity to make a difference to the lives of millions and our planet!
