Are you a HR Manager looking to work for a forward-thinking, growing and finically secure business within the engineering and manufacturing sector? If so, I have a fantastic opportunity for a HR Manager to join a business that has grown from humble beginnings into a UK powerhouse, supplying high-end products to their customers around the UK and overseas.


Having recruited for this business on many occasions, I can honestly say they are a true investor in their employees, as well as having the financial capabilities to improve the business and operations to support growth.


Over the past 7 years, two new sites have been set up, they have invested in new equipment as well as software to support all business services. Now this business is at a critical stage where the new HR Manager will join the company not only to be responsible for all HR related activities, however, to support the senior leadership team in developing a new infrastructure to take the business to the next stage of their growth plans.


The role of the HR Manager will be as follows:


  • To manage all HR related activities across a multi-site operation reporting directly to the Director

  • Outline a “Rising Star Academy” to highlight the future talent

  • Enhance safety and wellness, strengthen relationships between staff, teams and employees, manage job satisfaction, attract the best recruits and promote the organisation’s values
