Scottish Enterprise (SE) is Scotland’s main economic development agency. We help Scottish businesses grow nationally and internationally, become more efficient and innovative, and access the funds they need to develop. We also attract investment into Scotland from around the world.

The difference you'll make

As HR business partner, you’ll be the voice of HR in your department. A trusted adviser to leaders and managers, you’ll deliver HR strategy, advise on complex employee relations cases and mentor HR advisers.

You’ll work closely with HR business partners across SE to develop a joined-up, organisation-wide strategy, and make a real difference to people programmes, practices and decisions.

Day-to-day you’ll:

  • Work closely with leaders and managers to understand departmental priorities and how these affect workforce planning
  • Plan and lead on HR engagement and communications programmes
  • Work with HR peers across SE to develop organisation-wide agreement and understanding
  • Resolve complex employee-related issues
  • Mentor the HR advisers in your team

The qualities you'll bring

Confident, self-motivated, and with a proven track-record in a similar role, you’ll have a solid knowledge of HR programmes and employment legislation.

You’ll also be an excellent communicator, able to influence leaders and team members alike.

Above all, you’ll have a talent for creating innovative HR opportunities, and the skills to build the business case that supports their implementation.
