My client, an exciting Hospitality start-up based in Watford, London are seeking a HR Manager to join their growing team. The company are launching US restaurant brands here in the UK.

These are fantastic brands that will be great fun to work with and fantastic on your CV.
You will need some payroll experience and knowledge of payroll for this role. It will be around 20-30% payroll and admin. You will report to the HR Director and have 2 HR Adminstrators reporting into you. This is a fantastic role for a HR Manager to be taking the next step to start Business Partnering in the next 12-24 months.
