Green Park - Interim and Executive Resourcing

UK HR Director - Senior Board Level

Our client is the UK arm of a respected international media group. With a top three position in their market, they have an enviable brand reach, and ambitious plans for the future. The company has recently recruited a new CEO to help build on the organisation’s existing strengths, at the same time as modernising and invigorating the business to deliver increased levels of customer satisfaction.

Job title:
UK HR Director - Senior Board Level
London, UK
Very competitive package

As part of the journey, the CEO needs to appoint a new Human Resources Director to the board, to design and implement the people strategy which will guide the future of the organisation. This is a role offering a range of exciting challenges and opportunities, contributing at the very highest level to a progressive and passionate management team.

The CEO is ‘people centric’, but has inherited an HR function that lacks some of the elements of sophistication and business acumen that are critical to moving the business forward. The principle challenge in the role centres on transforming the HR function into a far more strategic unit that will contribute significant added value to the organisation. While the transition toward a best-in-class department will take time, the role requires an HR Director with the gravitas, commercial acumen and technical knowledge to make a genuine contribution from day one. The management team within the organisation, led by the CEO, genuinely believe in the need for the HRD to be a trusted partner across all of the businesses activities, driving the people agenda to deliver exceptional results. While there is a definite need for strategic thinking, the role also requires an HRD who can get stuck into the detail at the same time, delivering results through a relatively small team that will need to be nimble, agile, and responsive to a business with big plans for the future.

This role is a great opportunity for a commercial, strategic HRD or star Head of HR looking for a fast-paced challenge working with an inspirational CEO.
