About the role:
We are seeking an experienced and confident HR Manager to join our Human Resources team, providing support and advice to MAG’s employees working in over 28 countries across the world. This is a varied and generalist operational HR role, using your professional HR skills and experience to support our lifesaving work across the globe, focussing on supporting our programmes in Eastern Europe, Latin America / the Caribbean and West Africa.
Working with senior managers based overseas, you will be responsible for managing and delivering high quality, effective operational HR services and advice across a variety of employment contexts and legal frameworks. You will also manage up to two other members of the MAG HR team.
Strong communication skills are a must for this role as you will be supporting remote stakeholders. You will guide, coach and provide support to senior managers in programmes as a trusted adviser on complex employee relations, performance management issues and change processes.
For an exceptional candidate, MAG would consider appointing the role as full time, with a starting salary of £40,416 per annum. We would also consider appointing the role as being remote, from within the UK, with travel to our Manchester office limited to one day per month, with travel costs borne by MAG.
You will have demonstrable experience of managing and delivering HR services and supporting managers to resolve a wide range of complex employee relations issues. Previous experience of working in an international HR setting is not necessary, but you will need to rely on your sound project management, people management, communication and influencing skills, as well as knowledge of employment law and ability to interpret and apply it. The successful candidate will have experience of line managing and supporting others as well as developing and implementing HR policy and procedures. This is a fast-paced role, which will require high levels of initiative, pro-activeness and strong multi-tasking skills. You will also be a creative, flexible, solution-focused HR professional committed to MAG’s goals.
