People Development Manager

What we need in a nutshell

We are looking for an experienced HR generalist who will flourish in a fast-moving, customer-focused environment.  The role covers a broad spectrum of HR duties and will work as part of our wider People Operations Team to support the delivery of our overall people strategy.

What you’ll be doing

You will be managing full HR mix, supporting our location managers to recruit, develop and retain the best people in the hospitality sector. This includes:

  • Generating and implementing ideas that create an amazing team culture, and ensuring that training and development opportunities are delivered;
  • Managing employee relations issues such as disciplinaries and grievances;
  • Championing best practice in equality, diversity and inclusion and ensuring H&S Risk Assessments are in place for employees and circumstances where they are required;
  • Keeping procedures, policies and documentation, such as contracts and offer letters, up to date and fit for purpose;
  • Championing the use of our online HR information systems
  • Ensuring people understand our key people management processes, policies and procedures;
  • Encouraging two-way communication with team members and responding to feedback and suggestions positively.

Skills, experience and qualities you’ll need

If you can demonstrate the following, we’d love to hear from you:

  • In depth experience of dealing with employee relations case work;
  • Experience of delivering people management training to line managers;
  • Experience of supporting managers to find solutions and of developing collaborative and productive relationships with a wide variety of individuals;
  • Experience of reviewing and updating policies and procedures and a sound understanding of their practical application;
  • Resilience and self-motivation;
  • Great communication skills and the ability to adapt, depending on the audience;
  • Willingness to occasionally travel and be away from home for key meetings.

It’s the icing on the cake if you have a CIPD Level 5 or are willing to study for it, a degree or equivalent qualification, and experience of working with stakeholders across multiple locations and from multiple backgrounds.

It’s about your values too. We have a can-do, fun-loving, people-centred ethos here at Away Resorts, which is captured by our holiday heroes’ mantra of Attentive Amazing Lovers - have a read about it on our website and decide if it describes you.
