- Introducing workforce planning with the aim of improving the quality of Hires and supporting the achievement of business strategy
- Leading, developing and managing a highly engaged team
- Leading, developing and implementing our Employee Value Proposition

- Previous evidence of leading Transformational change projects

- Extensive experience building relationships with stakeholders at all levels 

Does this sound like you?

- Do you love seeing the difference you can make to your team, candidates and hiring managers?
- Are you passionate about moving the dial on Diversity & Inclusion?
- Do you enjoy working collaboratively?
- Do you get a kick out of disrupting current processes to make improvements?
