A leading Quantitative Hedge Fund is currently looking for a Head of HR to cover a maternity leave for 12 months at this stage. The role will report straight into the Managing Directors and will oversee all HR-related matters, ensuring the department runs efficiently and aligns with business objectives.

As well as the operational elements, the MD's are also looking for someone who can make process improvements and recommendations on current company policy, D&I strategies and the wider HR agenda. This is a great opportunity to drive change and enhance the current HR offering with the full backing from the leadership team and support of an HR Administrator.

This is a hands on, yet visible role, and you'll be expected to work closely with senior stakeholders and support on strategic initiatives as well as managing employee records and preparing contracts etc. Other duties will include ensuring SMCR requirements are met, managing performance reviews and disciplinary action as required and assisting with the hiring process.

The business is looking for someone who has sat in a Head of HR role previously and used to working in a boutique financial services environment. You must also be comfortable dealing with challenging stakeholders and able to influence and push-back where necessary, as well as an understanding of financial markets and algorithmic trading.

Due to the confidential nature of the business, you will be expected to be in the London office 5 days per week from the outset. The role is due to start in November 2021.

The SR Group (UK) Limited is acting as an Employment Agency in relation to this vacancy.
