What will you be doing at Miniclip?

As you would expect of a HRBP role this person will work collaboratively and creatively with key stakeholders to drive the recruitment, development, engagement and progression of Miniclippers so that they are perfectly placed to contribute to our growth agenda and success of the business.  

We are looking for someone who has experience, passion and an analytical mindset to lead and champion the very best working experience for our people right across Miniclip. Whilst we already have a number of great initiatives and practices in place, this person will work with HR colleagues and Senior Leaders, using data and insights, to help us to challenge ourselves on whether we are offering, and living by, a truly great employee experience.  

This is a super role: An opportunity to initiate and build on great foundations, in an environment that values both hard data and intuitive judgement; a complex and growing business that excites, challenges and keeps you on your toes; and colleagues who will work alongside you to deliver great things.

What are we looking for?

Partnership with the business: Building and maintaining strong working relationships with your nominated leaders and managers; Building an understanding of your customer group - what they do, the commercial levers, their strategic priorities, the impact that they need to have in the business etc.

Acquisition and Onboarding: Partnering with the business throughout the hiring process – supporting the talent acquisition team and hiring managers in defining roles and interviewing when needed; Working with hiring managers to create and sustain an employment experience that genuinely matches the rhetoric of the recruitment process and is consistent with the Employer Brand; Working with managers to ensure that onboarding is both inspiring and smooth and that new employees can quite simply “hit the ground running” when they join.  

Talent Management and Succession: Working with your nominated leaders to identify and develop the “talent” in their teams; Working with Leaders & Managers to help them to identify the Managers of the future and to support them in building the skills and experience to transition into a leadership role ahead of need; Utilizing data analytics to track and forecast talent needs and career progression. 

What else are we looking for?

Leader & Manager Excellence: Collaborating with the Head of Learning and Development in the development of strong leadership and management capability (both skills and behaviours) within the existing management population through:  

  • proactive, outcome- oriented, pragmatic advice on tackling issues as they arise  

  • supporting leaders and managers to apply the learnings from formal Leadership development programmes into action  

  • coaching Leaders and Managers to develop in role.  

Performance Management and Reward: Coaching Managers to set clear and relevant expectations for the employees in their team and to provide timely, well-evidenced and actionable feedback on performance and progress; Collaborating with the Head of Reward and with the business to ensure that all Reward processes are implement on time and taking account of all of the important parameters (e.g. market pay, internal relativity) to ensure Rewards at Miniclip are fair and consistent with our Reward Philosophy.  

HR Advice: Providing trusted strategic and operational advice to your assigned business areas on HR matters; Delivering HR support to acquisitions as needed; Ensuring HR policies and processes are implemented fairly and consistently; Staying abreast of the latest HR and industry trends and legal updates to ensure compliance and innovation.
