You’re a People Person.

And a Forward Thinker.

And a Culture Champion.

Just like everyone at Apparent.

We’ve enjoyed phenomenal and exciting business growth over the past 18 months, and we’re looking for a talented HR Generalist who can work collaboratively with the agency leaders to ensure our people are progressing and are fully engaged.

The role of HR Generalist is critically important to Apparent’s business success. People are our most valued asset and you’ll be the one to ensure we have a happy and productive workplace. Promoting the agency’s values and shaping a positive culture is a vital aspect of this role.

You’ll join a creative team of fearless, hard working account handlers, strategists, producers and creative thinkers who always strive towards excellence. While we operate at a global level, we maintain a start up culture within an environment that is social, fun and engaging, in a warehouse-style office space that is full of natural light.

This is a newly created role that reports to our Head of People Strategy.

The role is to:
• Develop and implement HR initiatives to further build Apparent as an agency of choice
• Develop and maintain HR related policies, job descriptions and procedures to be up to date and compliant
• Work with team leaders to determine how we can best retain our high performing people
• Oversee and manage a performance appraisal system that drives high performance and adds to a culture of feedback and progression
• Design an employee benefits incentive programme that differentiates Apparent as an employer of choice
• Support the Talent Director with recruitment of various roles
• Develop employee engagement metrics and other HR metrics to ensure a healthy engaged culture
• Promote and monitor employee safety, welfare, wellness and health
• Solve people issues by quickly implementing people driven solutions
• Provide HR expertise across career planning, performance management, data analysis, benefits and incentives, employee relations, recognition programmes and people development.

Key skills and experience:
• 5+ years proven working experience as an HR Generalist in a fast paced, dynamic working environment with relevant tertiary education.
• Creative agency experience is ideal.
• In depth knowledge of Australian employment law and HR best practices
• A high performer who is people orientated and results driven
• Demonstrated business acumen to drive organisational and people related strategies and outcomes
• Effective communicator with the ability to build relationships with leaders and drive organisational change
• Ability to work within constraints and to challenge the status quo
• Demonstrable experience with human resources metrics and culture change
