The Company

This is a leading, global consumer organisation rich in heritage and with a recognisable brand renowned for quality. As they embark on an ambitious transformation plan which will see the next phase of their development and success, we are excited to be partnering with the business to identify a talented HR leader to head up a new division focused around strategy and innovation.

The Role

Based in Paris, this newly created global HR business partnering role will see you responsible for a high performing and diverse population that includes technology, analytics, research, design, brand marketing and communication. This group will overall help design and drive insight, strategy and innovation through to implementation across the product portfolio and will be organised in a highly agile way.  

The Individual

To be successful you will have a track record of HR experience gained in organisations that have been through similar transformations focused around agile methodologies and organisational thinking. FMCG, consumer, manufacturing or related industry experience preferred but not essential. Crucially, you should know what true innovation and strategic OD/capability building looks like and be a fluent French speaker.
