Supporting the design, development and delivery of the Employee Engagement elements of our HR Strategy, to include responsibility for Internal Communications, Employee Recognition and Sustainability.
Contributing HR expertise to engagement projects and initiatives, ensuring compliance with external and internal requirements.
Maintaining and developing mechanisms for measuring and analysing levels of employee engagement; taking responsibility for ensuring plans are developed in response to findings and implementing those plans to time and budget.
Acting as the first point of contact in engagements with trade unions; maintaining positive partnerships, arranging and setting agendas for relevant consultative and negotiation committee meetings, ensuring on-going compliance with recognition and supporting the development of relevant strategies.
Maintaining and developing HR policies and procedures to ensure compliance with changing external requirements and consistency with best practice.
About you:

You will have previous experience in an HR role, specifically managing the development and delivery of successful employee engagement programmes and initiatives. An ability to balance conflicting demands and priorities is essential as is proven experience of managing and resolving complex problems across a wide range of disciplines. You will also need to bring experience of working with trade unions or employee representative groups to the role.

To succeed in this role you will have excellent written and verbal communication skills and be able to demonstrate an ability to relate appropriately to all colleagues and stakeholders.

If you think you could play a role in helping us deliver on these exciting and ambitious plans we would love to hear from you.
