- Solid HR Business Partner experience, ideally Chartered MCIPD or CIPD level 7
- Strong stakeholder management, with the ability to manage expectations, influence and persuade
- Proven people management skills
- Ability to multi-task, perform under pressure and to adapt to change
- Effective, logical problem solving
- Resilience and tenacity when challenged
- Numerate, strong analytical skills with high attention to detail
- Excellent written communication
- Strong Microsoft Office skills, including Word, Excel and Outlook
