We are at a pivotal moment: the climate and biodiversity crises are deepening, and inequalities are even more marked in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. The global investment system has an oversized impact on many of these global challenges. We want to make sure that impact is positive. At ShareAction we work with investors, policymakers, and individuals to unleash the positive potential of the investment system. We aim to build a world where our financial system serves our planet and its people.
ShareAction’s People Team plays a pivotal role in driving us towards achieving our mission. You’ll be joining a team at the heart of everything we do, supporting the organisation to grow and develop, while harnessing its internal culture, and ensuring we live up to our values. You’ll help recruit new, passionate team members, and assist existing staff, supporting them to develop, and implementing the policies and procedures that determine the way we work.
We are looking for a PT Business Partner (Recruitment), to join our growing People Team and help us meet our ambitious goals. ShareAction is going through a period of significant growth and the PT Business Partner will play a key role by proactively sourcing candidates with a broad range of sometimes niche knowledge and experience in an often highly competitive arena. This is a hands-on role for someone with excellent relationship building and communications skills. You’ll work closely with managers to build capacity, design roles and recruit in ways that secure the talent we need for a growing organisation. The PT Business Partner will also have the opportunity to support in the development of our attraction, onboarding, reward, retention, and engagement initiatives. This role would suit an experienced Recruitment Specialist interested in moving into a more generalist HR role but is open to all who meet the requirements below. Recruitment admin support will be provided by the HR Administrative Officer.
