Macildowie HR are working with a quintessentially British brand in the Leicestershire area as they are looking to bring on a new HR Advisor as they expand. The organisation has 1 site in the UK with 900 employees and others abroad with 3,000.
The organisation has been around since the early 1900's and they are very passionate about their heritage. They focus on their commitment to develop truly unique products and continue to deliver through innovation.
The Head of HR comes from a retail background and was interested in the role because of the brand. Everyday is different for her, she has a lot of variety in the role and feels this is the same for the HR Advisor. The Head of HR is very down to earth and approachable and the HR team itself is very close knit, they tend to do quite a lot outside of work.
You will be working alongside the current HR Advisor who has been there for 5 years, she started as an HR Administrator and worked her way up to the advisory role and completed her Level 7 CIPD qualification during her time here which was funded by the organisation.
This is a very generalist role, no areas of the business will be split with the other HR Advisor, you will both share all aspects of HR.
You will act as the first point of contact, advising on HR matters with professional advice and support in a timely manner. You will be responsible for managing absence across the business and will implement a successful absence procedure and policy.
ER casework will not be a focus in this role as although the business is quite large, ER is not. The business do not have any Trade Unions and rarely go to tribunal due to the nature of the business and the family feel.
Alongside the day to day running of the HR department, you will have the opportunity to get involved with some fabulous projects such as implementing a new ATS, looking at the current contracts and changing them in due course as well as adopting new values to suit the new culture of the business.
