Have an affinity for ER? This position will allow you to create a clear ER strategy in one of London's largest manufacturing business.

Job Description

The creation of a new HR Operational Excellence team in this large food manufacturing business has given rise to an exciting ER specialist position.

This business is excellent at what it does - which is making food products for the major retailers (of which it has won multiple "The Grocer" awards). It is looking to match this excellence with the creation of a new central and shared services department that will push this business to be the employer of choice.

With this in mind, it is looking to move from a transactional way of working to a proactive and engaging approach to employee relations via a fully thought out and comprehensive strategy as set out by this role.

What is particularly appealing about this role is that because it is new to the business you don't need to worry about walking the same trodden path that has been done before, as there is no path. It is your job to create a World-class approach to ER and implement it...simple?

Well not quite, this can be an extremely fast moving business and this role will manage a numerous, complex caseloads with assistance from two ER Advisors that will report into this role. You will need to be a tough and resilient character but also a positive one to help deliver this change. You will ideally be CIPD qualified and have experience of engaging with Unions.

I can imagine this role will be difficult in parts, managing change is never easy, but there is a real opportunity to see significant, positive change from your direct input in this role.

To assist you searching for a role by location - we have added a generic postcode, when uploading the advert, that designates the centre of the county in which this job is found. You may not see this on certain job boards.
