Head of HR
Right place. Right time. Right stuff. A career at Five Guys can help you discover what you’re really made of.
Being made of the Right Stuff also means we’re committed to providing our people with a culture where they feel valued and well looked after at work, so while they are on the front line looking after our customers, we’re hard at work making sure they have all the support they need to feel well looked by Five Guys – and that’s where the role of the Head HR comes in.
Reporting to the People Director, as the Head of HR, you’ll take the lead in all generalist aspects of HR for Five Guys UK. Working towards a longer-term goal to develop and embed an industry leading employee proposition for Five Guys, which evolves and continually improves with the growth of the business. You’ll be comfortable with leading from the front and be just as effective working at a strategic level as you are in day to day delivery of all people related issues. Five Guys is a fast-growing business so you’ll be used to working in a fast paced business with ever changing priorities and evolving business needs.
At Five Guys we believe in the value of getting it done, you’ll focus on how we can achieve the goals of the business and People team, with consistent open communication and collaboration with senior leaders. You’ll work in closely with the operations team to ensure that the full employee life cycle in our restaurants is running effectively and that we are able to grow, retain and inspire all of our people. You will lead the thinking and activity on diversity and inclusion for Five Guys, responding to emerging trends externally. You’ll have a thorough understanding of the principles and practices of generalist HR, Talent Management, ER, L&D, change management, Reward etc. Including case law with a genuine desire and curiosity to immerse in the Five Guys culture and make Five Guys the best place to work. We do not all think the same at Five Guys, you’ll need to be comfortable challenging conventional thinking and have the ability to positively influence stakeholders.
We are a people led business, which is why we think this is the right opportunity for a Head of HR who wants to make a positive difference on the lives of our people and our customers – if you do too, you’re probably made of the Right Stuff to be the Head of HR at Five Guys.
