  • Working closely with the HR Director to drive the People agenda to meet business requirements and increase organisational effectiveness

  • Leading on Enterprise Agreement negotiation for 2 EA’s which will be coming up for review in 2021

  • Working across a range of HR projects, for example the implementation of a new time & attendance system across the business

  • Building leadership and management capability

  • A strong focus on workforce planning, succession management, talent and capability development

The ideal candidate will be:

  • A true strategic HR business partner and change agent, able to build high-trust relationships with senior leaders across a global, matrix-driven organisation

  • Highly commercially focused, you’ll bring solid experience in driving results that genuinely impact business performance
