At PebblePad we are passionate about developing, and retaining our smart, dedicated staff. And, of course, we are always seeking out new talent to join our amazing and rapidly growing team. You are essential to our growth ambitions. You will help us by acting as a champion for the company culture and will support the company executives and team leaders build, support and nourish high-functioning teams that work collaboratively, efficiently, and effectively, promoting our values of open and honest, kind and considerate, respectful and rewarding.

Whilst this role has a particular focus on people and culture, you will also be our internal HR expert, liaising as necessary between the business and our retained HR advisors.

This is a fabulous opportunity for someone who is ready to take the next step in their HR career, especially for someone who is passionate about people and performance, but who knows their way around the processes and paperwork!

WE THINK YOU WILL FIT THIS DESCRIPTION:

  • You are comfortable admitting what you don’t know and recognise that seeking and receiving feedback is part of the learning process,

  • You are always looking for what can be improved and offer ways to fix any potential roadblocks,

  • You are resourceful - if you don’t know the answer, you’ll find it or better yet, craft it yourself and share it,

  • You are calm & poised under pressure,

  • You can context switch with ease and don’t shy away from the day-to-day “on the ground” work, or the more strategic work,

  • You understand how your words and actions affect others and show kindness and consideration for others,

  • You take a “customer service” focused approach to working with people,

  • You are committed to your own professional development and demonstrate growth mindset,

  • You have excellent attention to detail with a strong ability to write clearly, concisely, and logically,

  • You are committed to maintaining a high degree of personal integrity and confidentiality.

IN THIS ROLE YOU WILL BE OUR HEAD 'PEOPLE PERSON' WITH RESPONSIBILITY FOR:

  • Developing and owning our People Strategy,

  • Designing and implementing efforts that strengthen an inclusive, values-driven culture,

  • Managing initiatives such as employee surveys, health and wellbeing programmes, community engagement and team building,

  • Selecting and implementing platforms and tools to support the people strategy,

  • Building on our existing HR processes around onboarding, pay & benefits, performance, talent & success planning,

  • Providing support and coaching on best practices and company processes related to feedback, performance reviews, promotions, and discipline,

  • Overseeing the talent acquisition process so that all candidates have an exceptional experience,

  • Working with leaders across the business to write briefs and job descriptions and to identify and attract outstanding talent,

  • Identifying training and professional development needs to ensure our teams have the knowledge and skills they need to succeed.

THESE ARE THE SKILLS AND EXPERIENCES WE THINK YOU'LL NEED:

  • 5+ years of People/HR experience in a management or leadership position,

  • Experience of working in a dynamic, fast-growing organisation,

  • A proven track record of developing and implementing processes, systems, and tools that create and sustain a positive organisational culture,

  • Experience of supporting, coaching and mentoring both junior and senior colleagues.

  • Excellent working knowledge and experience of UK HR and employment legislation.

The salary offered will be dependent on skills and experience and includes a generous benefits package. The role is full time and may is located at our Telford office with lots of flexibility around remote working. We believe in inclusion and diversity and are an equal opportunities employer.
