Completed United States

The Company

We are very excited about a US Head of HR search we are working on, to be based in New Jersey for a mid-sized global Pharmaceutical company. This European organization is growing quickly, and there are big ambitions for the US business. As a result, we have been asked to identify an enlightened HR leader for the United States.

The Role

The position will partner with the US President and will be responsible for all aspects of HR within a fast-growing US business. Reporting jointly to the CHRO and the US President, this individual will be charged with defining the future U.S. HR strategy (along with the CHRO); retaining and upgrading talent, supporting acquisitions, driving a Change program, and putting in place a platform for continued growth. The Talent agenda is a particularly important aspect of this role.  

The Individual

Although this is a US position, robust global experience is necessary, since this individual is reporting out internationally; and working with a very global team. There is a strong preference for experience living and working in other major regions. We are seeking a strong HR Business Partner and leader with a strong Talent orientation. Specialist Talent Management, or Talent Acquisition experience would be valuable; as would Change/Transformation; and M&A credentials. Previous Pharmaceuticals industry experience is preferable.

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