HR and Operations Manager

26 September 2023

We are a group of companies delivering commercially focused legal advice and solutions, HR support, wellbeing and training, mediation and dispute resolution services to a variety of clients. The exciting part is, it doesn’t stop there as we are constantly developing new products and services to meet our clients’ needs.

We are seeking a strategic and innovative individual to join our team in as Manager of HR and Operations. In this pivotal full time position, you will play a fundamental role, as part of the board, in shaping the future growth and success of our business. By leading people development initiatives, you will ensure optimal performance across our teams of HR Consultants, Solicitors, and Support staff, ultimately enhancing the delivery of our services.

As the key point of contact, you will build and maintain strong relationships throughout the group, fostering a collaborative environment that drives positive outcomes. Working closely with the Managing Director, Directors, and Managers, you will provide proactive HR support to foster a high-performance culture within the organisation. Your expertise will be crucial in identifying solutions for performance improvement and implementing targeted development interventions to unlock the full potential of our workforce.

In addition, you will take charge of managing our remuneration and benefits strategies across the group. By conducting comprehensive reviews and exploring cost-effective alternatives, you will ensure our offerings remain competitive and aligned with industry standards. Furthermore, you will spearhead our recruitment efforts, taking ownership of the in-house process to attract top-tier candidates who embody our company’s values and contribute to our ongoing success.

You will have the support of a small team initially, and as you identify business needs, you will have the opportunity and backing from the Board to build and shape your own team.

As a forward-thinking leader, you will also oversee the efficient operations of our various offices. This includes providing ongoing facilities support, managing IT infrastructure, and nurturing relationships with outsourced IT providers, insurance partners, and benefits brokers. By maintaining a seamless and streamlined workflow, you will contribute to the overall productivity and effectiveness of our business.

This role not only offers a unique opportunity to make a significant strategic impact on our firm’s future growth trajectory but also presents an exciting prospect to join our ambitious organisation. As we enter a phase of rapid expansion over the next 24 months, your contribution will be instrumental in driving our success.
