Our client is a renowned business in the eCommerce space with several thousand employees in Europe and headquartered in Berlin. Since its inception it has seen an impressive growth rate in its headcount as well as revenue and profit. The culture is open, transparent and centred around the customers and employees alike. The next few years will see further growth and internationalisation. The culture is agile, fast and demanding but humble.
As Head of Works Constitution Affairs, you will be responsible for the relationships with the several works councils of the company in Germany and accompany the foundation of an overarching “Gesamtbetriebsrat”. There is a team of six employee relations managers and specialists. You will be a knowledgeable and trustful advisor both to the employee representatives as well as the senior management.
For this role we are looking for an experienced employee relations manager with a good track record in dealing with a variety of works councils. You must be native or near native in German and have excellent knowledge of the German Works Constitution Act (BetrVG). While we do not see a need for a certain sector, candidates from FMCG, retail or logistics might find it quicker to understand the environment. More so, having worked in agile and unpretentious company cultures will be even more beneficial. Leadership experience and a law degree are not mandatory.
