Due to an exciting period of growth and new client wins, a fantastic opportunity has arisen for an experienced and talented HR Consultant to join our lovely team on a full or part time (minimum 3 days per week) basis.
Our story began in 2014. Having built a successful HR career within high growth tech companies, and with a passion for technology and innovation, our Founder Lisa Thomson had a vision to deliver pragmatic and commercial HR support tailored perfectly to the needs of early stage and high growth businesses.
Purpose HR is a small, fast-growing consultancy working exclusively with entrepreneurial startup and scaleup businesses with a niche focus in the Technology, Engineering and Life Sciences sectors. Our flexible support enables businesses to scale to their full potential through the attraction, retention and development of key talent.
We are exceptionally proud of our client base and are a trusted HR partner to some of the most innovative and high growth investor backed businesses in Scotland and beyond.
We are a values-driven organisation and pride ourselves on working practices which demonstrate this. Trust, empathy and equality are at the heart of everything we do.
This is a unique and exciting opportunity for a talented individual to deliver HR consultancy and support to a range of high growth, innovative clients and to help mentor and develop less experienced team members in a fast-paced business environment. No one day is the same, as team members Marina and Donna describe.
Our clients are scaling startups in dynamic environments which requires us to be both proactive and reactive to ensure we deliver an excellent customer service.
In this varied role you can expect to be working on the following tasks and duties as the main focus of your days:
To thrive in our dynamic environment, you will be able to demonstrate the following skills, experience and qualities:
This is a fast-paced role in a growing, early-stage company and the above list of tasks and responsibilities is not exhaustive. As a member of our small and supportive team, you will have the opportunity to be involved in a broader range of activities than those described above, to be mentored and supported by our Senior Consultants, and to develop your HR and consultancy skills.
We offer a range of flexible working patterns to suit individual circumstances. The role will be home based at the current time, and there may be a future requirement to work some of your hours in a co-working office space in Edinburgh city centre.
Purpose HR actively supports employees professional and personal development with access to ongoing training and learning opportunities.
We are offering a competitive salary dependent on skills and experience (£28-32k per annum full time, pro rata for part time candidates) and a benefits package including pension and a generous holiday entitlement.
