You will be support various business units, working closely with senior leaders across a number of verticals including finance, payroll, legal and IT. 

The Opportunity

About You

Ideally, you will possess exposure to matrix environments that operate at a fast pace and with continuous improvement at the forefront of what they do.

More broadly, you will be a proactive problem-solver who is capable of establishing robust working relationships and be comfortable operating across the full employee lifecycle in a true generalist capacity! Any exposure to FMCG or the portfolio groups you would oversee i.e. finance, legal, payroll could be advantageous.
