I am now recruiting for a great new role for a highly successful accountancy firm based in the City. They are looking to hire a Senior HR Business Partner to their growing team on a maternity cover. The business themselves are going from strength to strength and have a few acquisitions on this horizon this year.
The HRBP will be looking at a UK population predominantly in London but with some regional offices as well. This will be a generalist BP role where you will act as a commercially focused partner to the business lines you support with the aim to help them achieve their goals through their people.
This is going to be a great role for someone who really wants to prove themselves and put their stamp on a role. You will be given the autonomy to manage your own workload effectively but also given support should you need it. The team is highly collaborative and they are looking for the new joiner to be a real team player and want to get stuck in.
The successful candidate will ideally be educated to degree level and will have, or be training towards, the CIPD qualification
Prior experience of HR at least to assistant level with breadth and depth of generalist HR exposure
