HR Business Partner – Sussex

Are you an experienced HR Business Partner who loves a varied role?

Can you work collaboratively with businesses helping them to achieve their people strategy and offer pragmatic and clear advice and guidance?

Have you got a strong employee relations background, but can provide every aspect of HR support from generalist, recruitment, strategic HR, and training?

Do you enjoy working in an office with a team of passionate professionals, and can work independently but as part of a team to provide outsourced HR support across a wide range of sectors?

If the answer is yes, then this could be the role for you!

We are seeking to recruit a HR Business Partner to join our friendly Outsourced HR company based in Seaford, East Sussex. This is an excellent opportunity for a HR Professional who is seeking a busy and varied role, who loves to offer the full spectrum of HR support and has the personality and practical approach to work to adapt to the knowledge, approach, and culture of our clients. Our ethos is to ensure that we provide high quality HR support, in a friendly and practical way where we build strong working relationships with our clients. We recognise that every client needs a different level of support, a different approach, but most importantly a HR professional that understands HR solutions in the wider business context.

Sussex HR Limited has been established since 2009, and it has expanded to include two sister companies. The team currently consists of 11 employees but is increasing to 14 due to growth, and we need a HR Business Partner that has the ability and approach to work in a busy and friendly outsourced HR Company.

This role would suit an experienced HR Business Partner who has a love of employee relations and generalist HR but enjoys the fact that no two days are the same and is happy to undertake complex employee relations work as well as generalist HR support.

Working in an outsourced HR company is very different to working in-house as a HR professional, so we are looking for someone who loves the challenge and wants to develop whilst being able to provide practical and commercial HR solutions.

So, are you are looking for your next challenge? This is what we need from our HR Business Partners:

Key personal skills and experience:

  • Ability to manage and guide on complex employee relations issues, generalist HR, and advice on recruitment and retention.
  • Up-to-date knowledge of Employment Legislation
  • Experience in supporting managers in all aspects of HR, through attending meetings and proactively managing the HR processes.
  • The ability to manage conflicting priorities.
  • Commitment to providing a high-quality HR service; ranging from answering basic enquiries to strategic HR.
  • Ability to provide clear HR advice and assistance.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills; ability to write management statement of cases and letters (not template letters)
  • Ability to work in a fast-paced environment and to adapt quickly.
  • Business acumen and the desire to build strong relationships with the managers you are supporting.
  • Ability to develop and sustain our reputation for providing a friendly, proactive, and supportive HR service to our clients.
  • Pragmatic and friendly approach
  • Thirst to understand the needs of the clients.
  • A sense of humour!

Why Join Sussex HR Limited?

  • Opportunity to work in a HR position that is varied and interesting due to the range of clients and nature of the HR support we provide.
  • Working within a collaborative friendly team who work together, sharing knowledge and experience.
  • The role is based in our own offices in Seaford town centre, with free on-road parking and fantastic public transport links.
  • Access to private healthcare on completion of your probationary period
  • Ability to be supported to gain professional qualifications.
  • Feel appreciated and valued within a business that is committed to supporting their employees.
  • Opportunity to attend work social events.
  • Flexible contracted hours considered to meet personal needs as well as the businesses.

This role will stretch HR professionals due to the wide breadth and variety of the role; but we love it!

We are based in Seaford, 20 minutes from Eastbourne and 30 minutes from Brighton but you will be required to visit your clients for meetings. A full, clean driving license is essential as is the use of your own vehicle.

To apply, please submit your CV and covering letter in the first instance.
