Companies can't stand still. They have to evolve continually, and HR plays a critical role in helping staff through these periods.


Our client is a fast growing and innovative manufacturing organisation supplying its world class products globally and making a real difference to people's lives. It is part of a Pan European group. They are now seeking a highly experienced HR Director with at least ten years HR generalist experience including management of a HR business partnering team in a manufacturing and supply chain environment.


Working closely with the Senior Executive team, you'll be implementing the group strategy at the local country level in Germany. As such, you'll need to be fluent in English and German and have the gravitas and strong character to constructively challenge, coach, engage and influence the leadership team. Fluency in Spanish would be highly advantageous too.


As an experienced HR Director, you'll have the knowledge and background to lead the changes required because of dramatic growth and the launch of innovative new products, working closely with the Works Council in a unionised environment to transform the business.


Visibility will be critical to building the strong relationships you will need to succeed in this role, as our client wants you to continually develop and improve HR best practices including talent acquisition and succession planning strategies to become an employer of choice in order to attract the highest quality STEM talent from graduates to senior managers and leaders. As a key figure in the country executive team, you will work closely with the directors, senior managers, line managers and staff to educate, coach and support the correct application and continuous development of HR and company policies.


As for your background, our client anticipates that you will have a degree in a HR discipline and be a member of a recognised professional HR body. In addition, you'll have led transformation and growth projects in your previous roles and can demonstrate resilience, strength of character, and a results-oriented mindset to your work. You will be a HR generalist and business partner already operating at Head of HR/HR Director level. This experience will have been gained, ideally within a multinational, matrix, and unionised environment within a highly successful commercial manufacturing and supply chain environment.


Overall, this will be a high profile, challenging but rewarding position and the opportunity to really shape our client's strategy and direction as it experiences excellent growth.
