HR Business Partner

One Group. Five brands. Unlimited possibilities.

Five different automotive brands. Group Functions. Trade specialists.

Volkswagen Group is one of the most successful automotive manufacturers in the world, with some of the most iconic brands that the industry has ever seen. But we're also a great Sales & Marketing operation in our own right. We have over 800 permanent employees and a network of more than 1,000 dealerships in the UK. Operating out of Milton Keynes, Volkswagen Group UK sells half a million vehicles every year. In fact, one in every five cars sold in the UK is a Volkswagen Group brand.

However, what really sets us apart is how we work – not how many vehicles we sell. VWG UK has a unique culture, built on diversity, difference and a friendly rivalry that inspires us all. Across our brands, we learn from each other, encourage each other and regularly challenge each other to think differently. Our people have a true passion for what they do, a genuine desire to go further for customers and to give their own careers real momentum at the same time.

We have an exciting new opportunity to join our HR team as a HR Business Partner. Our HR team is the beating heart of the business, we're a commercial business partner  that ensures each brand and group function puts people first.

Supporting Audi, VW Commercial Vehicles and Group Commercial Services you'll partner with board level directors and senior leaders to ensure we have the right people strategies and interventions  in place to drive our commercial success.

You'll lead on talent and succession planning, resource planning, high level employee relations and recruitment for senior leaders. You'll be an active member of the HR leadership team and oversee a HR Manager on a day to day basis. You'll be skilled when it comes to implementing organisational change and have the ambition and tenacity to ensure we're fighting fit and always achieving. 

You'll be great at building relationships with a wide range of senior stakeholders, enjoy a challenge and thinking of new and innovative ways to contribute to our ongoing People Strategy. You'll be comfortable and confident managing upwards, influencing stakeholders and coaching and guiding our leadership population.

You'll be an experienced HR practitioner with exposure to a large commercial organization. You'll know how to implement best practice and innovative HR principles and be familiar working in a busy and changing environment.

You'll work closely with the wider HR team and enjoy working in a collaborative close-knit team. You'll have a real opportunity to make a difference to our business, we're growing, we're changing and we're innovating.
