As the Senior People Business Partner you'll work in partnership with one or more functional leadership teams, together with People team colleagues, to ensure that the People strategy and needs are understood and translated back into our People plan. You'll collaborate with the wider People function to ensure that insights support the shaping of solutions and that solutions are successfully embedded and support intended outcomes. You'll also consult and provide advice to support the business achieving its short term and long term People goals.

  • Develop an understanding of your functional business area's performance, strategy and people related topics, and become a key member of their leadership team.
  • Provide sound advice to support people practices in line with our values and company goals.

You have experience in leading OD projects and/or Change Management/Transformation programmes. You have a point of view and are confident leading and challenging a discussion with colleagues up to Exec level.
