What can we tell you about this fantastic client?

This is an opportunity to add a very well-known financial services name to your CV. Not only will you be adding a great name to your CV, you will also get to work with some of the nicest colleagues around that truly love what they do.

They are looking for someone to cover maternity leave. If you are a strong and commercially focused generalist that can hit the ground running, then this could be just the role for you…

Where does this role fit in?

The main focus of this role will be to support with the development and implementation of best practice HR strategies, policies, processes and solutions that enable the business units, specifically global IT in London, to achieve their objectives.

They want you to deliver an exceptional value added HR service, giving advice and assistance to key stakeholders and employees, as well as challenging thinking and traditional approaches to find win/win solutions.

You will coach managers, and ensure fair and consistent application across key HR activities, including:

  • Resourcing
  • Performance Management and Development in conjunction with the Talent Consultant
  • People Management and Employee Engagement
  • Compensation and Reward (in conjunction with Snr HRBP, Group Head of HR and Regional C&B)
  • Regulatory and company compliance

This role will also provide administrative support, prepare confidential reports and letters, and support corporate HR initiatives/programs, interfacing with the wider HR team, specifically the Senior HR Business Partner as well as UK Regional HR team members, as appropriate.

You will get to work with great colleagues in the process. This role will not be boring!

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for someone with 5+ years' experience in the HR field in a commercial generalist role. You will hold a broad understanding of Employee Lifecycle activities, operational HR and employment legislation. You will also need to be able to define problems or situations, logically diagnose root causes, identify value add solutions and follow up through to resolution.

You should be someone that anticipates changing situations, needs, and expectations and maintains a flexible and agile approach. You should be numerate with an ability to analyse and manipulate data to identify HR trends coupled with experience in managing HR related projects.

You will need the ability to work independently, as part of a team and within a complex matrix structure. Experience of working on change programmes that include TUPE work would be a bonus.

Financial services sector experience is not essential but might be advantageous.
