Shaping our future through brilliant people.  That’s when it hits home.

People! They’re the most important part of our business and we need to make sure we’re supporting our brilliant people now more than ever, as we embark on our most ambitious and exciting strategy yet - to build more homes, independence and aspirations.  You’ll play a key part in delivering the HRD operational plan that supports this strategy.    We’re No. 7 in the UK’s Best Large Places to Work and 17^th in the Stonewall Top 100 employer list – why - because of our brilliant people and culture!

If you’d like to join our multi award winning HRD Team with centres of excellence in HR, Organisational Development, Learning & Development, Resourcing, Reward and Employability then we’d love to hear from you.

A bit about the role 

We have a fantastic opportunity for an HR Business Partner to join us. You’ll be part of a small but perfectly formed HR team working with Jaya, our HR Manager, who has a passion for people and equality and loves to talk all things fashion.  We’re based in Newcastle and London and we’re all about collaboration so we get together at both locations as well as making best use of our fab technology to stay connected.

You’ll partner a range of internal customers across Home Group, supporting our brilliant people managers to unleash potential, working collaboratively to harness insights and expertise across Human Resources and Development.

Attention to detail, intuitive collaboration and being energised are key to our success.  To us it’s all about the delivery: we measure outcomes and behaviours aligned to our Values, not time spent at work and we enable everyone to be accountable for delivering what’s needed in their own unique way. 

So if you want to do awesome things in a brilliant team and work for an organisation that really makes a difference… join us at Home Group.

Working flexibly

It’s the team’s unwritten rule that you attend the important appointments in life, be it your child’s school play, your partner’s graduation, or to get your new fridge delivered. You can elect to fit these around your working day or use your flexi to take the time off. Our focus is on getting the job done, not your working hours!

A bit about you

You’ll be confident, energised and collaborative.  An excellent rapport builder, you’ll have the ability to quickly gain the confidence of colleagues and stakeholders. You’ll be able to formally analyse and understand individual stakeholder needs and build excellent working relationships with people both internally and externally, adopting a coaching and facilitating style to achieve commercial results. Technically, we need you to have had relevant experience in a similar role, and we would love you to be CIPD qualified. You’ll need an understanding of employment legislation and the ability to apply it pragmatically including in relation to ER case management, TUPE, restructures and redundancies.

It’s important that you’re comfortable with travel and able to be flexible too - supporting stakeholders across the South region, and regularly attending meetings at our Newcastle head office.

What’s on offer?

You’ll be equipped to work in an agile fashion with the latest IT kit which includes you being issued with a surface pro tablet and smart phone. We also do casual dress (or be as smart as you want to be)!
