Completed Belgium

The Company

Our client is a mid-sized manufacturing firm focused on supporting the pharmaceutical industry. As part of a drive to lift the level of HR support for the sub-region, a new role has been created to work across the Europe and Asia operating sites. The employee population across these sites will be approximately 700.

The Role

This role will report to the Global HR VP and have a close working relationship with the Europe & Asia Operations Head. Operating sites in Europe are based in Germany, Italy, France, UK, Belgium and the Netherlands. Asia sites are based in China and Thailand. This is a new role and will have a small team reporting into it with a remit to grow the team and up-skill the level of HR.  

The Individual

You should be an HR leader who has managed a team of 10+ whilst leading the operational and strategic direction of a region e.g. Europe. The organisation is going through specific HR transformation across systems and talent management so a track record of guiding change would be ideal. Manufacturing experience plus exposure to the life sciences/pharmaceutical industry is preferred. Base location for this role is ideally Leuven, Belgium, but could be in any one of the European countries with operating sites.

Unless the advertisement specifies otherwise, only HR Professionals who are legally able to work in this country can be considered.
