Additional description

Employee Relations Consultant (CIPD Level 7 Qualified)

Competitive Salary + Bonus + Benefits

Based in Coventry with Occasional Travel

The phone is ringing…

It’s Tom, the manager at the East Leake site, he’s been trying to get in contact as he needs some advice. One of his employees has turned up late again, that 4 times in the last week. Now Tom is a nice guy, treats his staff as adults and trusts and respects them, so he can find it hard to deal with difficult situations. How does he approach his employee and discuss the issue of continuous lateness? Is there a reason for this lateness – how can he explore this further? He’s not done this before so needs a personalised consultant to talk him through, step by step to ensure the best and most productive outcome.

That’s where you step in…Our Professional Services Team in Coventry are looking for an experienced Employee Relations Consultant to join them and coach our internal stakeholders through complex ER issues.

We love talent…Talent helps us grow as a business and takes us to where we want to be. Without Talent where would we be? It’s the job of our Employee Relations team to ensure our employees are happy and are treated fairly in compliance with UK Employment Law legislation. You’re there to keep everyone happy – both our managers and their employees. You’ll be responsible for providing a high quality consultancy service, dealing with a wide range of employee relations issues from disciplinary, grievances, tribunal claims, settlements and probationary reviews – every call will be different so you’ll need to be on top of your game and assist managers to reach a conclusion in all of these areas.

We’re looking for an experienced Employee Relations professional who is CIPD Level 7 qualified and prides themselves on customer service – after all customers are at the heart of everything we do. This role is phone based with occasional travel to other Saint-Gobain sites so you must enjoy being on the phone and have a natural flair for building strong relationships with your customers.

So what’s in it for you?

We’re probably a little bit biased but it’s fair to say “a lot!” That’s probably one of the reasons we’ve been voted Best Employer Global and UK for four consecutive years.

You’ll be joining a well-established team at our UK headquarters in Coventry who offer a supportive environment to develop your career. We know work is important but so is life outside of work and that’s why we offer a flexible working environment. You’ll have a competitive salary + benefits plus 33 day’s annual leave (including bank holidays) and have access to generous discounts across our 30+ Saint-Gobain brands making your personal DIY tasks at home a breeze. You’ll also have access to discounts across multiple high-street brands….and free fruit is available to all our employees on site…a small benefit perhaps but everything counts!

If this role is of interest, please follow the link below to apply. We look forward to receiving your application.
