Job Description

An excellent opportunity for a Group HR and Payroll Manager, has arisen to join a well-recognised manufacturing group, supporting around 450 employees across the UK.

In this varied, HR Manager role, you will have the opportunity to head up and play a fundamental part to the HR function of the business. In addition to maintaining the function, you will monitor HR trends to develop and implement HR policies and guiding management throughout the organisation. Your role will encompass management of the recruitment lifecycle, employee relations and payroll to guarantee the smooth running and satisfaction of the HR and payroll function, across the group. Although you are the sole HR contact in the business, you do have 3 Payroll Assistants who report into you.

Working alongside the hiring managers with the recruitment cycle your duties will include:

* Analysing the role requirements.
* Writing recruitment adverts.
* Screening applicants.
* Coordinating the induction process.
* Assessing recruitment statistics and advising line managers on best practice.

In addition, you will take charge of the employee relations and act as a subject matter expert, by consistently following HR policies and developing management to ensure best practice is always adhered to. These duties will include:

Day to day you will manage a payroll team of 3 to support you in this area.

The ideal candidate will have proven experience within an HR Manager capacity, working within a multi-site environment and be confident working in a stand-alone or as part of a small team. Should you have experience gained within a manufacturing or engineering background, then that would be considered particularly advantageous, but not essential to securing the role.

The starting salary for this role is between £50,000 - £60,000, dependant on skills and experience. The successful candidate will join a thriving business and in return for your hard work, you will also receive; a company pension scheme, private healthcare and 25 days holiday plus bank holidays.
