The Company

Join a leading organisation in the aviation industry, renowned for excellence and innovation in aircraft maintenance and logistics solutions.

Operating across major airports in several key Australian cities, they manage a diverse portfolio of contracts with both major airlines and regional carriers.

With close to 1000 employees, our client is known for fostering a close-knit, supportive work culture and prioritising DEI efforts.

You will be part of a collaborative and high performing P&C team who love what they do. More broadly, the organisation is led by a passionate and approachable CEO who values engaging with employees at all levels and is committed to enhancing culture and performance with investment in people programs of work.

The Opportunity

As a newly created role, you will work to deliver generalist activities across the employee lifecycle, supporting a geographically dispersed workforce across Australia. You will have the opportunity to help implement foundational HR practices and programs to support the enhancement of the function and performance.

The P&C function is on an exciting journey and with the leadership displayed by the Head of HR, you will work together to embed core processes and practices through building relationships with stakeholders across all areas of the business, including operational staff at the airports.

Further, you will:

  • Be a point of escalation for all employee relations matters and provide appropriate advice and guidance to stakeholders
  • Lead complex investigations and grievances, delivering outcomes in-line with Award standards
  • Work with leaders across the organisation to uplift leadership capability
  • Partner with operational leaders to ensure the efficient and effective delivery of service to customers

About You

You’ll be an experienced Human Resources Business Partner or Senior HR Advisor who thrives working in a hands-on environment where no two days will be the same! You will have a background in supporting a multidisciplinary workforce in an operational environment such as aviation, hospitality, construction or alike industries.

Building relationships will be your strength with the ability to become a trusted partner and foster a culture of continuous improvement and enhance performance through people.

You will be experienced in working with Awards and EBA’s, comfortable with their interpretations and application. Experience supporting the implementation of an EBA, including negotiations, is advantageous but not a must have.

Above all, you will be a collaborative team player and someone who is willing to roll their sleeves up to get the job done. A curious mind with a willingness to share ideas and look at ways of improving processes will see you achieve success.

We anticipate the recruitment process will consist of an initial meeting with a Levyl consultant, followed by a first-stage interview with the Head of HR, and a second-stage interview with a senior business leader.
