The ideal candidate for this role will be CIPD qualified with proven practical experience in the delivery of operational people management including experience of coaching and advising managers and staff on a variety of people issues.  You will have a sound understanding of employment legislation and be used to partnership working with strong verbal and written communication skills and the ability to adapt your approach to different situations.

As well as being a strong team player with previous management experience of guiding, supporting and mentoring other members of the people team on complex or challenging situations you will demonstrate a passion for People & Culture with high-levels of motivation, resilience and the ability to take ownership.
