Ref: 267 Date Posted: Monday 26 Feb 2024

Parker Young is delighted to be supporting an innovative, rapidly growing, leading- technology client, to identify a Head of HR at an extremely exciting time for the business.

As a true generalist Head of HR,  you will deliver value and commercial outcomes across all areas, embedding excellence, pride and ownership throughout the business. You will support with structural change, driving engagement and coaching.

You will:

  • Provide specialist proactive HR advice/coaching to line managers and employees.
  • Resolve straightforward and complex people issues to deliver commercially pragmatic outcomes in line with best practice.
  • Lead on implementing organisational change developments including restructures, pay and grading where appropriate.
  • Working closely with senior leadership and cascading through the management team to embed a leadership approach that is unique to them and drives excellence.
  • Identify future leaders to work on individual development plans.
  • Ensure that personal development plans are part of coaching and objective-setting conversations.
  • Design, develop, deliver and evaluate appropriate in-house training for employees and line managers on a range of policy, procedure and soft skills training.
  • Proactively identify training needs and career development plans working with line managers to ensure effective talent pipelines and succession plans are in place.
  • Review and develop performance management mechanisms that drive high-performance cultures and reward and recognise achievement.
  • Upskill and coach managers in effective disciplinary and grievance conversations, making a more proactive approach as standard.
  • Understand vision and values and work on a strategy that truly embeds the culture and feeling of ownership through every area of the business.
  • Ensure all policies and procedures are legally compliant, up to date and drive effective employee relations.

Our client is looking for an ambitious, commercially focused and pragmatic HR leader with an expert knowledge of employment practice, employment legislation, ER and resourcing.

You’ll have a demonstrable ability to challenge and influence constructively at all levels, creative thinking and an innovative approach to projects/tasks. You’ll come with great pace, energy, enthusiasm and the ability to deal with ambiguity.

This role will suit an existing Head of HR, or an experienced SHRBP/ HRBP with strong experience of working in a fast paced, rapidly evolving environment, whether privately owned of PR/VC backed and who thrives in smaller, experienced HR teams. Could this fantastic, newly created role be the prefect career move for you?
