HR Generalist

Redfern, New South Wales, Australia
12th March 2020

You’re a People Person.

And a Forward Thinker.

And a Culture Champion.

Just like everyone at Apparent.

We are a proudly independent customer engagement agency. We’ve enjoyed phenomenal growth year on year since opening our doors over 9 years ago, and have developed an enviable international and local client list. Our experienced team of over 90 specialists covers disciplines including business consulting and strategy, client service, creative and content development, media planning, production and technical delivery.

While we operate at a global level, we maintain a start-up culture within an environment that is social, fun and engaging, in a warehouse-style office space that is full of natural light.

We’re looking for an experienced HR generalist who can work collaboratively with our leadership team to shape our positive culture and ensure we continue to be a happy and productive workplace.  This newly created role reports to our Head of People Strategy and is critical to our continuing success.

The role is to:

  • Provide HR expertise across career planning, performance management, data analysis, benefits and incentives, employee relations, recognition programmes and people development.
  • Develop and implement HR initiatives, including a benefits incentive programme that differentiates Apparent as an employer of choice
  • Work with team leaders to determine how we can best retain our high performing people
  • Oversee and manage a performance appraisal system that drives high performance and adds to a culture of feedback and progression
  • Develop employee engagement metrics and other HR metrics to ensure a healthy engaged culture
  • Promote and monitor employee safety, welfare, wellness and health
  • Solve people issues by quickly implementing people driven solutions 
  • Support the Talent Director with recruitment of various roles

Key skills and experience: 

  • 5+ years HR Generalist experience in a fast paced, dynamic working environment.  Creative agency experience is ideal, but not essential.
  • A relevant tertiary qualification is preferred.
  • A high performer who is business savvy, people orientated and results driven
  • Effective communicator with the ability to partner, influence and build strong relationships at all levels of the business
  • Sound knowledge of Australian employment law and HR best practices
  • Ability to work within constraints and to challenge the status quo
  • Demonstrable experience with human resources metrics and culture change
  • Knowledge of HR systems and databases
  • Pragmatic, resilient and hands-on style with experience in coaching and process improvements
