Cromac Street
United Kingdom

Job description

To cover a period of maternity, we are looking for a seasoned HR Business Partner to join us for a 12 month FTC.

In this senior HR position on the island of Ireland, you will be the knowledge expert for our Belfast, Dublin, and Shannon offices, and work as part of a wider UK team aligning global business objectives. Employee relations, change management and feeding into organisational design will be a key part of your role. 

A "trusted advisor", you will work in partnership with key stakeholders across the business as well as having oversight of all people matters, enquiry resolution, ensuring the right people are in the right roles, learning and development, and priorities as determined by the senior leadership team. You will be confident in advising and making recommendations at a senior level, and will work in close partnership with our Head of Operations, acting as a sounding board for key business areas.

You will be a proactive planner, seizing the opportunities to support and improve the current internal processes within the team and playing a key role in ensuring a people centric service is provided to all employees, after all, our people are our biggest asset! 

This isn't your generic HR role and you will get to wear many hats - from the oversight of facilities to coming up with ideas for local employee working groups, communications, and engagement activity. We may even call on your Project Management skills to help us facilitate an office move.....exciting!

As part of a truly collaborative (and very fun) wider HR team of 8 across UK&I, you will directly manage a skilled and supportive team of 2 in Belfast; and with a range of tech at our disposal we won't let these unusual and "unprecedented" times stop you from embedding into our team from day one.

This role could be based in Belfast, Dublin or Shannon with some travel to support our regional offices.
