Of these 2 HRBP positions, one has commercial focus and the other will be supporting operations.  Both roles will involve some travel to the various locations across the UK with occasional nights away and the operations focused role will involve more travel.   In addition there will be the chance to work in some leading change projects to support a newly created operating model that increases productivity and profits for this already successful and profitable company.  This role is to support that change and HR needs to engage hearts and minds so that all employees are truly motivated.

To achieve such ambitious goals, the people agenda is focused on three things:  Organisation-wide change; personal growth; and the development of a workplace that inspires people to be the best version of themselves.
