Join our team at Aspire Defence Services as a HR Business Partner, where you'll drive HR strategies to align with our business goals.
As a key member of our Operational Senior Management team, your responsibilities include a wide range of HR Business Partnering services. You'll empower managers with the tools and capabilities to effectively lead their teams and proactively address people-related challenges. Your role includes leveraging crucial people analytics, managing HR projects, and sharing best practices across the HR function.
You'll be at the forefront of fostering a culture shift and transformation to enhance communication and knowledge sharing. Additionally, you'll build management capability through coaching, craft solutions to people issues, and utilise data to boost employee engagement. Collaborating closely with the wider HR team, you'll ensure up-to-date HR metrics for reporting while maintaining strong relationships with stakeholders.
We're seeking experienced and credible HR professionals with a strong HR/ER background.

You should also have experience delivering HR services across different geographies and be adept at building trusted relationships with stakeholders. A customer-focused approach, expertise in HR policies and procedures, and a background in leading through change and transformation are key.
In this role, organisational skills and a collaborative communication style are highly valued. You should possess strong emotional intelligence, confidence, and the ability to build effective relationships across teams. Handling urgency and pressure, prioritising effectively, and adapting to a rapidly changing environment are crucial skills.
Your articulateness and credibility in influencing people at all organisational levels are vital, along with strong analytical abilities for informed decision-making. Maintaining confidentiality is a non-negotiable skill.
