  • Work closely with a motivated P&C leader to design a future focused HR function!

The Company

TOGA is a leading, fully integrated property developer that has been changing the shape of Australian skylines for 60+ years! Their focus is predominantly on the residential market, having completed projects like The Hunter in Double Bay, Wicks Place in Marrickville, and Surry Hills Village. A privately owned, nimble and evolving business, TOGA is currently embarking on a transformation journey having recently added to their group leadership team. With a fresh strategic vision and appetite for process improvement; the role their People & Culture team must play is being realised. This newly created Business Partner job presents an opportunity to join a market leading organisation in a newly defined P&C team working with a collaborative and motivated leader!

The Leaders

This role will report into the People & Culture leader who has been with TOGA for 6+ years. Energetic, knowledgeable, and flexible in style; to fit with her you will be a fluid and passionate professional! Together, you will split the portfolio of 180+ employees to ensure the sound operational effectiveness of HR. With this leader focusing on C ’Suite engagement and furthering the strategic vision of People & Culture, you will focus on Senior to Mid-Level Managers and down, i.e. Assistant Development Managers, Development Managers and Engineering Managers. You will be a strong duo that will lay the foundations for what will become a contemporary HR function for this evolving organisation.

The Opportunity

As the People and Culture Business Partner, you will play a pivotal role in driving business outcomes by partnering effectively with the TOGA workforce on all generalist HR matters including performance, talent, L&D, engagement, and systems. You will have the opportunity to collaborate with leaders to upskill capability, standardise and revamp talent and L&D, define critical roles, and capability matrixes! Specific responsibilities will include, but not be limited to:

  • Partnering with mid to senior level managers and their teams on all operational HR matters including employee relations, engagement, policies, and processes;

About You

Levyl is looking for a proactive and motivated HR generalist that has most recently been in an operational Senior HR Advisor or HR Business Partner role. Well skilled across performance, talent, and employee relations; you will be interested in leaning into L&D, systems, and process improvement in your next role! You will be attracted to the nature of an evolving and nimble business, one on a journey from being ‘reactive’ to strategic when it comes to People & Culture. You’re hands on with how you problem solve, enjoy working with stakeholders from differing backgrounds, and thrive on the challenge that comes with refining, iterating, and creating ways to do better, and be better. Working closely with the P&C leader will afford you the opportunity to be mentored; however equally we are open to hiring an experienced Business Partner who enjoys a head office property & construction environment, but wants to leave the ‘blue sky’ strategic thinking to the boss!

The expectation for this role is to be in the Ultimo office four days a week, one of those days you will have access to a car space. Benefits include a whole range of different hotel, property, and wellness discounts and an annual discretionary bonus!

The Process

The interview process will be two stages: the first involving the current P&C leader and CFO and the second the Group CFO & General Counsel. An immediate start can be accommodated, a psychometric assessment to inform working styles will be completed and reference checks prior to offer.
