This is a great opportunity to join a market leader as the Site lead and HR Business Partner for three UK manufacturing and supply chain sites. The position is site based close to Leicester, Nottingham and Derby with travel to two other sites, and is supported by an HR Manager.

This is a challenging role that requires someone with gravitas and credibility who is able to work alongside senior stakeholders and be a part of the Site leadership teams. Ideally your experience will have been gained within a similar industry sector and working environment - manufacturing, supply chain, FMCG, engineering - managing the development and delivery of all site based HR activity. With broad HR Business Partnering experience you will have the ability to think strategically, be able to focus on leadership development, drive engagement and performance, drive project and change management and build strong relationships at all levels. This will include ER and Trade Union experience alongside strong knowledge of UK employment law. Alongside your HR generalist experience you will possess good business/financial acumen and have great communication skills.
