Resource Business Partner - South West Water and Group Shared Services

Location: Exeter / Taunton

Salary - up to £35,000 DOE

South West Water, as part of the Pennon Group, is the water and wastewater service provider for a population of c. 1.7 million in Cornwall, Devon, and parts of Somerset and Dorset. Since 2016 it has also been providing water services in the Bournemouth Water region to a population of c. 0.5 million. We provide reliable, efficient and high quality drinking water and waste water services throughout these areas.

By investing in the future of our region, we're not only improving the quality of life for today's residents and visitors but are also taking responsibility for future generations. Our aim is to continually drive up standards, particularly in the areas that matter most to our customers and be amongst the best in the water industry.

As part of our overall Group HR and recruitment strategy we are looking to build a Centre of Excellence Recruitment function to fully support our business in their recruitment and resourcing needs.

As such, we are looking for a Resource Business Partner to join us to support South West Water and our Group Shared Services functions, working alongside the other members of the Recruitment Team, HR Business Partners and business stakeholders to identify opportunities, maximising strategic approach and delivery. The Resource Business Partner will also support implementation of recruitment strategies across the business where required and as laid out by the Group Recruitment Manager and Head of HR Operations.

In this role, you'll have demonstrable strong relationship building, communication, influence and persuasion skills as these are key to effectively and sensitively delivering strategic objectives, building the credibility of the function further and supporting our stakeholders, providing accurate and consultative guidance at all times.

Our new Resource Business Partner will have a breadth of recruitment experience, either in in-house recruitment functions or agency, or both, and preferably within a larger organisation with complex requirements, delivering a wide range of recruitment strategies. You will have knowledge and understanding of the full recruitment lifecycle, resourcing principles, compliance, employment legislation and best practice. Wider knowledge of HR procedures would be advantageous.

Adaptability is also key in this role as our business requirements can develop swiftly. You must have extensive experience liaising with stakeholders at all levels, internally and externally, successfully building and maintaining those relationships to assist your effectiveness and build the reputation of the function further.

A background in the waste management and / or water industries would be desirable but not essential, however, knowledge and understanding of a wide range of disciplines such as engineering, head office and commercial would be required.

The base location of this role is preferably in Exeter; however, Taunton is also an option. There will be travel required across the South West predominantly, therefore a full UK driving license is essential.

This is an exciting opportunity to join our fast-growing business and be a part of how we're shaping the future.
