Quick Release is a managed service provider, specialising in Bill of Material (BoM) control within industries with complex products and global manufacturing strategies.

For non-techies that means that we provide top-notch software and data for companies building high-spec technology. We are an exciting and entrepreneurial young company and we're growing fast.

What is the role?

The goal of the HR strategy and talent manager will be to create an innovative HR environment within Quick Release to embrace and support our positive company culture (refer to the 4 QR's on our website). The initial focus will be to review existing policy and where necessary, to create and implement new strategies.

What is the plan?

Quick Release currently plans to hire 70 new employees over a 4 year period through a variety of recruitment channels. The HR Strategy and Talent Manager will be fully integrated in this process and will be responsible for ensuring that we have the tools in place to attract and retain key talent in our organisation.

Why should you care?

This is an exciting opportunity to bring your proven resourcing and talent experience to this crucial role in a competitive environment, and see what a difference you can make.

What will you do?

With a real sense of ownership, the HR Strategy and Talent manager will drive individual career development, CPD and the performance review processes, closely working with supervisors and the board of directors to ensure successful delivery.

In addition to the long and mid-term initiatives, the HR strategy and talent manager should also handle day to day HR administration and advise on employment law/strategy as required.

The initial engagement period should also include an assessment of communication channels, implementing any appropriate adjustments, and finally adopting the function of a communications filter.

What will your responsibilities be?

We're looking for someone with experience in a HR environment, looking to take real ownership of company HR strategy and undertake the following responsibilities:

  • Assess and map talent within the business, identify opportunities for development and roll out succession plans with a focus on retention.

  • Identify and monitor key metrics for the business in management of talent, performance and succession.
  • Advise the Board of Directors in any legal issues associated with Human Resources management.
  • Manage all employment-related correspondence.
  • Work with senior management on performance management issues.
  • Set and manage HR related budgets.
  • Work with training providers to develop suitable content for the personal development process.
  • Advise & recommend in identifying and hiring top talent.
  • Carry out HR administration tasks as and when required.
  • Must be willing to travel to sites in Germany and the West Midlands.   

What skills and attributes are required?

The successful candidate will demonstrate:

  • A positive, energetic character coupled with a willingness to get involved with all aspects of developing a motivated and highly engaged team.
