The strategic People Partner is a new role working specifically with the tech team who are set to expand from 200 to over 400 people in the next couple of years.

This is an exciting and challenging role in a business that moves at pace and is not for the faint hearted! There is a requirement for continued delivery, driving the people strategy and implementing scaleable solutions which can flex and grow as fast as the business.

Who you are:

  • Experienced and competent generalist with a significant HR business partnering experience

  • You'll have worked in Technology and have an understanding of the key challenges in the sector, and be excited by the tech world!

  • Used to partnering with leadership level, you'll have brilliant stakeholder management skills

  • Team orientated at all times, with excellent interpersonal skills, down to earth and fun to work with.

  • Able to work at pace and comfortable with ambiguity

  • Data led and able to work with complex metrics and drive improvements

  • Enjoy working in an entrepreneurial culture that demands a great deal from its people.
