We’re a national law firm with a local reach. Our philosophy is ‘Expert Hand, Human Touch’ – something you’ll find in the way we work with our clients and how we support our teams. But, we’re more than just a law firm – we’re a team, working together to help individuals and businesses navigate life’s ups and downs.
Whichever team you join, working here you’ll feel a part of our friendly and inclusive environment. We’ll value you for who you are and what you bring. We support each other and push boundaries to achieve incredible things, and make a real difference to our clients and communities.
The work we do has been recognised in the awards we’ve won. We’re committed to being even better, and our awards help to show we’re on the right track.
With offices across the UK and around 3000 colleagues we have an ambitious Business and HR strategy centred on our Colleagues, Clients and Communities. Our people strategy is focused around four key outcomes; Brilliant Basics, Leadership Behaviours, Agile Mind-Set, and Wellbeing and Inclusion. Through these Colleague Commitments, we hope to make sure that Irwin Mitchell continues to be an employer of choice through great colleague experiences, a culture of strong leadership and an agile mind-set.
What have we done so far?
As Head of Business Partnering, you’ll sit as a key figure in the HR senior leadership team, working closely with our Chief People Officer, Susana Berlevy and other executive leadership teams, to successfully realise our strategic outcomes. You’ll be tasked with delivering the short, medium and long term people strategy whilst also leading a highly consultative and relationship-based team of HR BPs.
Your significant input into strategy will mean that you’re a thought leader and technical expert across a number of disciplines in HR, and you’ll be able to translate our business strategy into a comprehensive HR programme of people change, OD and employee relations.
