Package: Competitive

Our company is growing fast (60->90 this year alone!) and so we are looking to set up a formalised ‘People’ function to ensure our people stay happy and healthy as we grow. You’d get to own our people operations function, hire a small team underneath you & introduce a huge range of transformational changes from HR tech to new benefits (and more!).

If you’re comfortable with a bit of chaos and excited to own projects & initiatives that will transform our People function, then read on! 

The role

We’re a market leading tech company that provides data on the fastest growing companies in the UK. (think Monzo and Babylon!). As we go through the next stage in our growth (85 → 120+), we want to ensure our people are well looked after, that we can get the very best out of them & that our fantastic culture is maintained. 

Currently, anything under the People umbrella is spread between the wider Operations team and our COO. Keeping a really great work environment is important to us and we’re at a point in our growth now where we need a designated People function that can drive many of the positive changes and projects forward. 

To do so, we’re looking for an experienced People Operations Manager who can get hands- on across many of these projects and help build out a small team underneath them. This would mean both working in a hands-on capacity day-to-day, but also developing a long term People strategy that fits with our level of growth.

Within this, you would have a wide variety of responsibilities, namely (but not limited to!): 

  • Training & development: helping up-skill our entire workforce, overhauling existing training programmes, and working closely with team leaders to map out professional development plans
  • Culture & environment: from events to benefits to collaboration - figuring out how to get people back together after Covid and foster a fantastic environment for new and existing members of the team!
  • Wellbeing: keeping track of overall employee wellbeing & constantly seeking to improve how we look after everyone
  • Compensation & benefits: reviewing and maintaining our compensation & benefit packages, suggesting alternatives where necessary, and staying on top of changing markets.
  • Reactive HR issues: advising and supporting people around the company as and when issues arise, helping smoothly guide difficult situations through to fair conclusions

Our offer

We're offering a competitive starting package depending on experience.

We invest a lot in keeping our people happy and healthy! So as well as that, you'll also get:

  • Training: structured training & regular personal development opportunities
  • Wellbeing: coaching, counselling and virtual yoga/mindfulness sessions
  • Socials: drinks every Friday, office parties, company away days and regular team events
  • Options: substantial options scheme, so you can share in the growth you help create
  • Talks: interesting speakers in the office
  • Snacks: unlimited supply of fruit, nuts, tea and coffee
  • Books: you can order any relevant books you like or come along to our book club evening
  • Travel loans: rail season ticket loan and cycle to work scheme

About you

There's no one size fits all with this, but you'll preferably have roughly between 3 and 5 years' experience in People/HR

Plus ideally, you’ll be:

  • A naturalpeople person’: you’re in HR for the People! You like getting to know everyone in your team & can adapt your conversation to different personalities
  • Detail orientated and strategic: when running a ‘People’ project, you like to think about the most efficient way to do something, but can also understand the ‘why’ behind every decision and how it will affect the wider company
  • Ambitious: you are excited by the opportunity to make sense of what is, honestly, a slightly disorganised function, and build something that really works for years to come

About us
