Head of HR UK

I am working with an International client based in Wiltshire that is looking for a Head of HR for the UK within a site based manufacturing & production environment. Working closely with the UK Senior Leadership team you will drive people related change and transformation while ensuring that the HR strategy is being developed and delivered successfully in parallel with the Global strategy and policies.

The position is responsible for managing an HR team with responsibility for all site HR policies, procedures and processes to ensure an efficient and valued HR service across a diverse workforce. However, there are also a number of key change programmes including leadership & talent development, employee engagement and communications, diversity and inclusion, governance and compliance, resourcing, culture and values, competencies and performance development. You will work very closely with the Commercial, R&D, Production and Finance teams.

You will be an experienced Senior HR Business Partner or Head of HR with experience of people-related change and transformation. You will be able to define and deliver a robust People agenda and happy to work in an operational capacity as needed from the demands of a busy 24/7 operation.

It is likely your industry experience will have been gained within a Manufacturing/Engineering/Production/FMCG environment and with a diverse site based workforce.

International or European experience would be a distinct advantage with future career progression available to open up responsibility for a wider geographical remit.

A strong knowledge of UK employment law is required. Due to the nature of the business, you will need to access the site daily and live within commuting distance. The site is accessible from Swindon, Bath & Bristol and surrounding areas.
