HR Manager

Competitive salary and benefits (dependent on experience)

An exciting opportunity to join the leadership team of Dragon LNG as HR Manager.  At Dragon we provide safe, reliable and competitive access to the UK’s natural gas market as one of only three Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) terminals and you will lead the people agenda covering all aspects of HR, both strategic and operational.

Reporting to the Managing Director and with exposure to the entire business from the Board of Directors to front line staff and business partners, the primary focus of this role will be to deliver a comprehensive and quality HR service which supports the Company’s business objectives.  You will provide specialist knowledge for the full range of people-related issues and initiatives.

With end-to-end accountability, you will balance functional HR leadership with a business lens. You will lead a small team in the delivery of HR services (including training and competency), managing all operational HR activity whilst ensuring that statutory, regulatory and legislative obligations are met.  This includes, but is not limited to, employee and industrial relations, organisational development, policy development, terms and conditions of employment, recruitment and retention, absence management, remuneration and benefits, and performance management.

Key accountabilities for this role, include:

  • Developing a coherent HR strategy and lead the HR agenda with a specific focus on driving improvement and performance excellence.
  • Setting priorities and direction for the effective deployment of HR support and capabilities.
  • Maintaining up to date HR policies and procedures, ensuring that they are complied with and are appropriate and sufficiently robust to adequately safeguard Dragon’s employment obligations in accordance with current legislation and best practices.
  • Development and preparation of meaningful HR metrics/analytics to help inform decision making and the people agenda.

The successful candidate will be a proactive HR leader with proven generalist end-to-end HR experience, and the ability to work at both strategic and operational levels. CIPD accredited or with equivalent HR management experience, you will demonstrate subject matter expertise as such that you will be recognised by the business as the functional lead for all people-related matters.

Ideally you will have some organisational development experience to complement your all round generalist skill-set.  Also, whilst not essential, experience of working in an industrial environment would be an advantage.

You will demonstrate natural people-skills and the ability to build relationships, with a high level of energy and enthusiasm to motivate and influence others. With the resilience and capacity to manage a varied and high-volume workload, you will have a ‘can do’ attitude and a positive approach to problem solving, as well as the ability to focus on priorities and deliver on promises. You will have excellent interpersonal skills, including the ability to communicate complex, sensitive and sometimes contentious information.
