The Company

With locations across Australia, our client is a leading national organisation of near 1,000 employees. They effectively partner with both public and private sector organisations on green initiatives aimed at reducing our carbon footprint. A diversified company that also focuses on sustainability, infrastructure projects and consulting; they operate within what you could deem an essential service industry that is only set for future growth. With a steady pipeline of work and top ASX listed customers, this company is now looking for a strong P&C Business Partner to join the team to oversee the South Australian employee portfolio.

The Leaders

This role will partner closely with the Group People Officer on rolling out strategic national initiatives and also gain exposure to the company’s senior leaders and founders. The culture of this leadership team would be described as collegiate, passionate, down to earth and level headed. They strike the balance between being ‘real’ (blue collar industry connections) and commercial, in driving partnerships with tier one businesses at board level. The P&C team are x8-10 strong, and are all like-minded individuals who enjoy a relaxed but high achieving environment.

The Opportunity

This role will see the successful Business Partner oversee a portfolio of circa 200 employees and participate in broad-ranging generalist duties, whilst identifying opportunities for projects that advance and uplift the HR function. Specific responsibilities will include but not be limited to:

  • Cultivating and nurturing robust relationships with stakeholders across your portfolio, ensuring a deep understanding of employee and leadership needs;
  • Working with business leaders on performance and employee relations issues, providing sound advice and guidance;
  • Training managers on best-practice recruitment methodologies, equipping them with the skills to identify and attract the right people to build high-performing teams;
  • Leading initiatives to enhance employee engagement and retention, for instance, through investment in employee development or refinement of reward and recognition incentives;
  • Partnering with P&C team members to help roll out L&D programs aimed at upskilling managers across the business;
  • Engaging in a diverse spectrum of generalist HR activities across the employee lifecycle (there is administrative support);
  • Developing policies, practices and programs to set the business up for future; and
  • Identifying opportunities for P&C projects, assessing their viability, and driving their implementation to enhance the overall HR function.

About You

The successful candidate will have well-developed influencing skills gained from a role where strong stakeholder engagement was key, setting them up to successfully collaborate with senior leaders such as the COO and State Manager. As a dynamic self-starter, you'll possess the experience to confidently make decisions, swiftly gain credibility, and deliver impactful results for your portfolio.

The perfect fit for this position is someone who can bring a true generalist skillset to the table, and who delights in bringing innovative ideas to life. If you're drawn to a collaborative environment, possess robust business partnering skills, and would enjoy working as a 2IC alongside a seasoned senior HR leader, we want to hear from you. Further, you will take pride in mentoring junior P&C team members across the country while immersing yourself in the day-to-day operational aspects of a Business Partnering role.

Your energy for leading strategic projects will be a driving force, and any exposure to blue-collar industries will set you apart. Most importantly, authenticity is valued here – this passionate team embraces individuals who bring their true selves to work. If you appreciate teamwork over bureaucracy, this role is your gateway to a long-term future with a genuine and vibrant team!
