Senior People Advisor (WJFRP81749)
Senior People Advisor, Corby
An exciting opportunity has arisen within Jacksons Bakery for a Senior People Advisor to join the People Team based at our factory in Corby
Reporting to the Head of People, you will develop and deliver the site people and engagement plan to support the people strategy and site objectives. Working closing with our Head of Operations and the factory management team, you will partner to provide leaders with advice and support on all people matters. As a fairly new site, the culture is still being defined so you will have a pivotal role in getting underneath the current culture and shaping it to embed the Jacksons Bakery values. Your day will vary from managing recruitment, attracting talent to the business, and driving the engagement plan to managing employee relations matters including disciplinaries, grievances and absence. Being part of the wider Jacksons People Team, you’ll always have support and work closely with your colleagues in the Hull factories.
You’ll have a good grounding in HR with experience working at an operational level getting involved in the nitty gritty of people issues. You may have been in a stand alone HR or People role, or worked in a small team, but you are used to getting involved in all people related activity. You’ll be able to demonstrate where you have led and delivered people projects and be a big advocate of employee engagement. You’ll be resilient and adaptable, with the confidence and willingness to try out new things. Having used HR information, you can inform sound decision making. You will be a great communicator with the ability to form strong proactive working relationships with all colleagues. You will be able to influence without authority, demonstrate integrity and act as a moral compass for business needs where appropriate
In return for your commitment as our Senior People Advisor with us you will receive:
- Competitive salary.
- 6.6 weeks holiday, increasing to 7 weeks with 5 years’ continuous service.
- Stakeholder pension with generous employer contributions and life assurance
- Profit share
- Private health insurance.
- Employee assistance programme.
- Online benefits portal and well-being centre providing exclusive discounts with over 900 retailers.
- And free bread!!
- Support grants available for colleagues’ children attending University.
A little bit about us and our history
Jacksons is part of William Jackson Food Group, a sixth-generation family business founded by William Jackson when he opened his first shop in Hull in September 1851. Today we have a portfolio of four food businesses in distinct, yet complimentary market areas, employing over 2,000 people.
Our Corby site opened in 2018 – one of the largest investments our Group has ever made – and this will allow us to realise our ambition of being the best at what we do.
We have occupied the current site in Hull since 1907 and we now have 3 bread plants in our main bakery. We developed a second bakery, also at our site in Hull, which specialises in premium quality roll production.
We specialise in the supply of bread and other carriers to the sandwich manufacturers, foodservice, and export channels, and in 2012 we launched our consumer facing brand “Jackson’s of Yorkshire”.
We have recently won the Grocer Gold award for Business Initiative of the Year and a customer award with Coop.
This is an exciting time to join us – if we’ve sparked your interest, make this year a toast to you and apply now!
