Fantastic and rare opening for an employment law advocate to move In-house with this retail giant which is looking to expand its integral legal team.
Although head quartered in the Midlands, the role can be conducted almost entirely remotely, meaning the residence of the individual is secondary to their technical capabilities and cultural "fit".
Reporting into the GC, you'll be the go-to person when it comes to supporting and advising the HR team (and other relevant stakeholders) on all areas of employment law including; ensuring compliance and consistency across the business in all aspects of employment law including; providing employment law advice in relation to BAU and strategic HR projects and change programmes whilst mitigating risk/disruption to the business, working with the ER team to negotiate on and finalise settlement agreements and support with drafting and reviewing HR Policies and Procedures and working with the external legal partners when needed to ensure the right decisions are made.
Where this person will really add value however, is in their representation where needed at employment tribunals and liaising with the ER team, ensuring there is a continuous feedback loop in place to address root cause issues. Needless to say, advocacy skills are an absolute essential pre-requisite for this role and its likely you will pride yourself on being an expert on the tribunal process. We'd imagine this role suiting a fully qualified with over 4 years' experience.
A comprehensive benefits package including car allowance and bonus on offer.
