The HR Consultant role is responsible for providing generalist HR advice to managers and employees across the Australian business. This is a central role, working in collaboration with HR Managers across all sites, as well as head office.
Acting as the first “port of call” for HR cases, referred by employees, people leaders and Human Resources, the HR Consultant will be a strong coach, working through a variety of issues and scenarios. Day to day, you will assist with investigations, disciplinary procedures, performance management and absenteeism, leave management, change management and other adhoc ER issues.
Supporting key cyclical activities across the entire employee life cycle, the HR Consultant collaborates with Managers and Employees on tasks such as annual performance and remuneration reviews and engagement surveys, working closely with the HR Coordinator to gather data, track progress and ensure milestones are met for on-time completion.
In addition to the more “BAU” tasks, there is scope within this role to build and deliver leadership capability within the business, supporting the roll-out of a refreshed HR strategy and be involved in other interesting organisational projects as they arise.
