HR & People Partner

Hybrid Role (London based 2/3 days per week)

For the past five years, Hive Learning has helped some of the world’s most influential organisations create and embed culture change digitally and at scale. And in the past 18 months, our mission has become even more urgent.  We specialise in accelerating culture change in areas like inclusion, mental health, sustainability, and innovation –– areas that today are more critical today than they have ever been. 

And our approach works. 88% of our learners change their behaviour thanks to our unique approach. Our technology combines network science and nudge theory and everything we do is underpinned by a five-part methodology developed from studying over 20,000 change programs and real-world social movements.  In short, we’re on a mission to disrupt the outdated and ineffective world of corporate learning and help corporate learning teams overcome one of their biggest challenges — holding every person in their organisation accountable for their behaviours and making sure change sticks.

Our Values

It’s only right for a company who specialises in culture change, to have a unique approach internally. We work really hard on our culture, and we’re committed to creating a supportive, growth-minded and inclusive team.

Everything we do is underpinned by our 4 key values;

  • Experts, but not always right
  • Substance before “sizzle”
  • Caring and courageous
  • Evergreen entrepreneurs

We care deeply about giving feedback in the right way. We champion the idea of test and learn, and we’re not afraid of failure. We’re always looking for ways to improve, and respect everyone’s ideas. And we really take the time to invest in our working relationships, and overall, practice what we preach.

Why this role might not be right for you…

We love working here, but we get that our unique culture may not be right for everyone. Here’s a few reasons why working at Hive Learning may not be right for you:

  • Things move quickly here, and priorities sometimes change
  • We work really hard - sometimes the days are long and intense, but it’s worth it for the results you’ll be able to see! And you can always take the time back!
  • We really do love feedback, the good and the constructive - so make sure that’s something you’re comfortable with.
  • Whilst we love home working, we also love the time we spend together building our relationships, so if you never want to step inside an office again, this may not be for you!

Our recruitment process

If you’re still interested, we’d love to hear from you! After reviewing your application, if it seems like a good fit, we'll contact you to arrange a quick screening call. After that, it’s typically a two-stage interview, with a task or scenario thrown in too, but we’ll give you all the details during the screening call.

If you require any reasonable adjustments throughout the interview process, please let us know!

We strongly encourage candidates of all different backgrounds and identities to apply. We are committed to making Hive Learning an inclusive and supportive workplace.

Form CC-305
Page 1 of 1
OMB Control Number 1250-0005

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor. The law requires us to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We have a goal of having at least 7% of our workers as people with disabilities. The law says we must measure our progress towards this goal. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had one. People can become disabled, so we need to ask this question at least every five years.

Completing this form is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer is confidential. No one who makes hiring decisions will see it. Your decision to complete the form and your answer will not harm you in any way.
