Job Description

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a dynamic and experienced commercially driven Head of Group HR to join a hugely successful logistics business who are specialists in freight distribution. This is a very exciting time to join the company.

The role is very fast paced, certainly not without its challenges, but really is a great opportunity to shape and guide the company's development and have real impact and influence on leading the HR strategy. You will deliver a coherent and consistent message throughout the business and across their multiple sites. As further plans for expansion are set to continue, this role will suit a HR professional that is well versed within a logistics and distribution environment and is passionate about the development of their people.

You will be responsible for the delivery of the HR message across the group and it is therefore essential that you can implement robust systems and procedures from the word go in order to develop the HR strategy from a stable platform. This will translate into a cohesive and consistent message across each location from an employee engagement and change management perspective. A critical aspect to the role will be in working collaboratively with the managers at each site to identify development needs for them and their teams.

The role would suit an individual whose focus is very much commercial HR, in addition to other generalist HR functions. You will be pro-active, resilient and self-motivated with a positive way of thinking that you will instil throughout the business. You will have gravitas to gain the trust and confidence of the senior management team, with a diplomatic approach to conveying the messages that need to be communicated throughout your business teams.

You will need to be CIPD qualified and establish credibility quickly. A high degree of professionalism and sense of humour will be essential!

This is an exceptional opportunity to really make a positive mark on the development of the importance of the HR function across the entire group.

For immediate consideration, send your CV without delay!
