This is a brand-new role, working for an independent charity in beautiful South Devon, that has exciting and ambitious plans for 2021 and beyond. As HR Manager, you’ll be key to making its plans a success – and help to bring its brand-new tourist attraction to life - that’s due to open its doors later this year.
The regeneration of the site is in its final stages and the project now needs an HR Manager to evolve the HR function, initially to get the basics in place such as compliance, systems, procedures and processes, as well as to manage the recruitment of the wider team.
You’ll be working alongside the General Manager and Senior Management team and be someone who’s very much seen as a trusted advisor. You’ll know and understand, of course, the legalities and compliance aspects associated with this role however you’ll also be someone who will help drive and shape solutions as the organisation and team evolve. This will include supporting the management team to build, develop and manage their individual teams, developing the HR function longer term and getting involved in ad-hoc projects too.
You’ll need to be CIPD qualified (Level 5/Level 7), and if you’ve got previous HR experience in a retail/visitor attraction or catering environment, that would be a bonus but isn’t essential. What’s more important is that you’re someone who’ll support the General Manager in embedding a positive culture within the organisation from the start – so you’ll need to be someone who’s open and shares information, to make sure the team’s engaged and understand how they’re playing a part in the charity’s success and the important work they do.
It’s envisaged that this role will be four days a week however it could be full time for the right person.
If you’re someone who likes to make a difference, who’s going to be excited by this organisation’s growth plans and the contribution you’re going to be able to make, do get in touch.
