Job Title: HR Consultant
Location: Stevenage, Hertfordshire
Salary: From £40,000 per annum plus discretionary bonus
Job type: Permanent, Full time
Are you tired of corporate politics getting in the way of effective HR?
Have you had enough of delivering HR initiatives and people strategies that you don't agree with?
Do you want to make a real difference and add value to businesses that need and respect a skilled HR professional?
…then the role of HR Consultant could be for you.
The Company supports businesses all over the country with all of their HR needs with an approach specifically tailored to that business. Working predominantly with companies with 30-250 employees, across a wide range of industries and sectors, their HR Consultants advise boards and senior managers on how to handle their people to best protect the interests of the business and to drive productivity. They believe that commercially focused HR should align with, and help define, the operational, tactical and strategic goals of the organisation to enhance business performance.
They are looking for a skilled and experienced HR generalist who has operated in a Senior HR Advisor or newly promoted Business Partnering capacity to join their team of HR Consultants. Any direct consultancy experience would be a bonus but is by no means essential. You will be well versed in a selection of Talent and Performance Management, Employment Law and Employee Relations, Reward and Remuneration, Learning and Development, Policies and Procedures. You will be comfortable building and managing relationships with a wide range of 'clients' (this may have been internal clients to date), capable of providing sound commercial advice and identifying opportunities to develop the HR provision for those parts of the business.
In normal times, this role will require the HR Consultant to travel to client premises from time to time. This may involve regular travel to London and further afield. However, whilst COVID-19 measures are in force, travel will be limited appropriately, and the HR Consultant will need to be comfortable and competent using all other means of staying in touch with clients e.g. video calls.
Unlike any in-house HR role, the role of an HR Consultant provides a breadth of experience in a range of matters and clients. The learning opportunities are endless and your HR knowledge will be tested and grown every day.
If you are a commercially-minded HR professional looking for career progression but perhaps via an alternative route to the typical HR career path, please apply to see whether this role might be right for you. Note, we have a friendly, office dog who sleeps most of the day.
