We are looking to recruit a HR professional for this non-unionised manufacturing business. You will report to the HR Director and support business managers across the company.

We would like to hear from someone with HR gravitas in a blue collar' work environment, manufacturing would be of particular interest.

This is a 'hands on' HR role with a difference. Whilst you will be competent managing any manner of employee relations issues it has to be noted that this company much fewer than the norm ER cases. Absence runs at just 3% and many employees are 20+ years service. A 20% increase in turnover is reliably anticipated in the coming year. As well as the 'day to day' operations it is expected that the first 6 months for this new appointment will include putting the people in place to ensure this happens.

There is a geographical responsibility for other areas in the country albeit the necessity to be away from the office is maybe once a month or so!
