You'll be an active member of the People leadership team and oversee a People Operations 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.

Working closely with the wider People team you will  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.
