About You

What do we need from you?

Our People Managers don’t need to be CIPD qualified (although advantageous!) but we do look for experience in an Operational HR role, whether this be in a retail environment or with the hospitality and leisure or manufacturing / distribution.

You will also need:

  • Ability to build and maintain excellent stakeholder relationships, using strong influencing skills.

  • A passion for spotting, driving talent and creating a successful team culture.

  • Prior experience of supporting ER agendas and key processes.

  • Prior experience of managing multiple stores / sites is advantageous, but not essential.

  • Ability to listen hard and respond quickly to improve employee engagement.

  • Drive, enthusiasm and tenacity to deliver targets in a fast-paced environment.

  • Flexibility to work variable hours including early mornings, evenings (when required) working 5 days out of 7 across the week.

If you don't meet every single requirement, don't worry.  We are dedicated to building a diverse, inclusive and authentic workplace, so if you're excited about this role but your past experience doesn't align perfectly, we encourage you to apply anyway.  You may be just the right candidate for this or other roles.
