HRLife is delighted to be partnering exclusively with a people-centric SME with significant growth plans across the UK. They are a business that put their people and customers at the heart of everything they do and as such, they are now looking to recruit a Chief People Officer to support their forward-thinking, highly collaborative, talented workforce. To underpin this, you will help ensure this continues to be a truly great place to work which really welcomes new ideas and creativity.

Working as part of the C-suite and supporting the newly created leadership team, you will be integral to keeping their culture of collaboration and transparency as it grows. This role requires a commercial and strategic HR partner with a creative and proven HR background who has experience of working in a high-growth equity-backed business who has great influencing and leadership qualities.

Reporting to the CEO, this role will be focused on delivering value to the business through the design, implementation and alignment of strategic HR initiatives in support the growth plans and company objectives. This will be achieved through a consistent focus on people, operational excellence and a commercial approach, with an understanding and awareness of industry specific business challenges.

Your initial focuses will be around leadership development and management training, aligning a reward strategy to business goals, workforce planning and overhauling the existing appraisal system. Operationally HR is sound, but this role is very much about enhancing what is currently in place and elevating it to the next level as the business extends its reach and looks to grow its network nationally.

In terms of your experience, you will have a broad generalist background gained within a commercial multi-site business environment that has experienced a significant scale-up within the UK. You will have expertise in:
• Creating, influencing and driving the People agenda
• Talent Acquisition and Talent Management
• Engagement and Retention
• Working with business leaders, coaching and advising
• People Development and succession planning
• Continuing to support and develop a collaborative and enviable culture

You will be a strategic thinker who can demonstrate a flexible, open-minded and proactive approach, who knows what good HR looks like in an environment that is growing and truly welcomes progressive, new ways of working. Ideal candidate will have exposure of working in a UK only, multi-site business that has experienced significant organic growth during your tenure and as such you will be able to demonstrate your input into the success story.

This role will be based in Bolton 3 days a week with travel to other sites predominantly across the North and the Midlands so flexibility to travel is key.
