HR Manager (sole HR person for London office)
I am currently working with a commodities trading firm on an opportunity for an HR Lead / Manager in London. You'll be the sole HR person in the London office but have a close working relationship with the HR team abroad where the Head of HR that you'd report to is also based.
The London based HR Manager will of course need to be able to act autonomously on decision making but is also happy to pick up generalist duties such as signing off payroll. The remote nature of the team would suit someone flexible, that is very team orientated and will put the effort in to being collaborative.
Responsibilities will include:
Assist the Head of HR to develop and lead HR practices that aid performance, culture and values
Manage day to day operations of the employee lifecycle
Ensure compliance with regulators and employment legislation
Develop ER practices as necessary (such as processes for investigations, disciplinaries etc.)
Establish and promote a high level of employee engagement, developing initiatives that support culture and values goals
Establish in-house training, and selection of external providers
Check payroll monthly (outsourced payroll provider), manage all benefits
Utilise data to identify actionable insights, designing and then working on improvements to processes etc.
Candidates suitable for this opportunity will:
Have previously worked in a small business as an HR Advisor or Manager
Has experience as main point of contact for senior stakeholders
Be confident checking payroll and running processes such as benefits, onboarding
Have strong employment law knowledge
