​We are very excited about recruiting for this role as HRBP, for a company who has certainly made their mark in their industry. They are passionate about what they do, and are wanting an HRBP who is a self-starter, enthusiastic and really gets satisfaction in helping others and adding value. Ideally, you will have worked in either law, accountancy or a professional service environment.

This is a brand-new role and whilst they have policies and procedures in place, these will need to be developed and adapted to fit the scale of planned growth, over the next couple of years. We are looking for a generalist HR practitioner but as L&D is a big factor, this will be one the things that excite you and you have proven expertise in. The company has an office in London, and when allowed, you will need to be in the London office 1-2 days/ week.

What will my role as the HR Business Partner involve?

To some extent, you will be forming and developing your role, as you will be bringing your expertise to the table. With this in mind, the main initial areas will be:

  • Aligning the business strategies to working policies and procedures

  • Enhance existing training and development programme

  • Liaise with agencies and universities regarding graduate recruitment

  • Developing a competency framework

  • Responsible for the talent management process

  • Coordination of appraisals and where appropriate train managers to self-serve

  • Coach managers to allow growth

  • Employee Engagement and internal comms

  • Carry out analysis on performance and company culture analytics

  • Report to the Executive Team on any ongoing projects, as well as regular updates.

What skills and experience are we looking for?

  • Degree or CIPD Level 5/7

  • Ideally, experience working at this level in a professional services firm

  • Enthusiastic and hands-on attitude and approach

  • Comfortable working in a fast-paced environment

  • Experienced in setting and managing budgets

  • Proven experience of developing L&D framework and associated processes

  • Creative thinker with the ability to work on own initiative

  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills.

This is a fantastic opportunity to help the company achieve its on-going growth plans and be part of something that will give you great pride.
