As HR Manager, you are responsible for the entire HR organisation of Trek in the Benelux. In this role, you will receive input and frameworks from the central European organisation and from the USA. However, you are given ample room for local interpretation.
The function is shifting from an operationally-oriented role to a more tactically- and strategy-oriented position, but it will remain an all-round and expressly hands-on job. Case-driven matters (absence, performance, rewards, etc.) are combined with taking on more tactical/strategic issues. Think of themes such as succession planning, recruitment, working remotely, employer branding and (increasing) employee satisfaction.
In this role, you will report to the Country Manager of the Facility Harderwijk and to the European Human Resource Director. You will provide the HR Officer (who will be based in Wijchen) with functional guidance. For now the payroll administration is done by external parties.
Themes on which the agenda will focus in the coming period include:
- positioning HR as a Business Partner with more strategic influence;
- retention policy as well as recruiting personnel;
- further optimising/professionalising HR administration/processes.
In this role, you will be travelling. You are the HR representative for Harderwijk, Wijchen and some store locations. As such, you will be present at the main locations on a weekly basis. Harderwijk will be your 'home' base.
