We love an inspirational and compelling story. A few years back, our client set out on a journey of global growth. Following a simple strategy, with rebellious self-expression at the heart, they invested in people and systems, and expanded their direct to consumer strategy to see the sales of their iconic product soar. Building upon their established UK market they rapidly extended their footprint across EMEA, US, and Asia, becoming a truly global operation delivering double digit growth. This momentum has continued across all channels.
It’s always refreshing to work with an HRD that recognises what their business critically needs to succeed; product and people, one won’t succeed without the other, and it all starts with colleagues believing in the cultural DNA of their organisation. Joining the Exec at the start of the growth journey, they prioritised talking to colleagues across the business to understand the history of the business and the brand; what they loved, what needed to change; and this defined their organisational beliefs and behaviours. It wasn’t about crafting a set of values to display on a wall, it was about galvanising why they exist, what they believe in, who they are, and what sets them apart. These beliefs and behaviours formed the foundation of their culture and weave through their employee experience.
Whilst the brand is well known, the organisation remains relatively small with less than 2500 colleagues – a teen infrastructure still maturing. The HR team of generalists and specialists continues to expand, and they’re looking for a SHRBP to join the team and partner with their leadership teams across three corporate functions.
You’ll be an experienced SHRBP who knows what good looks like, having worked in a similar role within a global HQ environment. Naturally, you’ll be an experienced coach, with the ability to support, develop and challenge leaders, and through collaborative partnership create alignment between their people and business strategies. Working closely with specialist colleagues, you’ll be driven by unlocking potential and great performance, and help drive the broader organisational talent management and mobility initiatives. Whilst everyone is currently working from home, you’ll be keen to combine working with the team at their superb HQ hub with some remote working post-pandemic, and be in a position to travel occasionally inside and outside of the UK as required.Apply Apply
