About the role

We are seeking an experienced HR generalist to provide professional and expert advice to managers on a range of HR matters, including employee relations.

This is an exciting time to join the HR team as we embark on a number of interesting projects.


To carry out this role successfully you will have solid HR generalist experience, with a background of dealing with complex employee relations situations. Up to date knowledge of employment law is essential, along with a proven record of being a credible source of advice to the organisation.

The successful applicant will have excellent time management and prioritisation skills, exceptional interpersonal & communication skills and demonstrate resilience while under pressure.
