This position is a true generalist role in all aspects, whilst the main purpose of your role will be HR, you will be expected to assist with more operational duties, such as Health & Safety, Operations and Building Facilities.

This position could be suited to either an experience HR Manager, or perhaps a senior HR Advisor looking to take the next step within their career. The client is also open to industry experience, but feels those with retail, hospitality or customer facing environments would be best suited.
