Job Title: HR Consultant
Location: Stevenage, Hertfordshire
Salary: £50,000+ per annum plus discretionary bonus
Job type: Permanent, Full time
Are you tired of corporate politics getting in the way of effective HR?
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.
Unlike any in-house HR role, the role of an HR Consultant provides a breadth of experience across the whole spectrum of HR disciplines and clients. The learning opportunities are endless and your HR knowledge will be tested and grown every day.
The Company supports businesses across 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. At no time in the past has this been needed more than it is now, as they help businesses survive, thrive and evolve in the new world of work.
They're looking for a career-minded, skilled and experienced HR generalist who has operated as a HR Manager or Business Partner to join their growing team of HR Consultants. Any direct consultancy experience would be a bonus but is not essential.
You will be well versed in many of the following HR disciplines: 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 both strategically and operationally. You will also need to have excellent communication and organisation skills and an ability to effectively manage yours and others' workloads.
In normal times, their HR Consultants work from the office in Stevenage, their homes and on client sites. Being flexible and able to work across all these locations is essential to enable the company to maintain their team dynamics. Note, we have a friendly, office dog who sleeps most of the day!
The travel to client premises 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.
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 and they look forward to exploring this further with you.
