HR Project Manager (a.i.)

(32 - 40 Hours per week - start July 2021)

Action continues with its amazing expansion plans. We are already active in 9 countries and we have strong plans to boost our international presence. We also have a firm commitment to provide our organisation with the best HR system landscape that not only supports our employees and managers but that also protects the confidentiality and availability of their information. As a result, we are looking for an experienced HR project manager that can support us in two key projects. 

Action has established a data retention policy project that will implement the standards for data retention in the HR (related) systems and applications we use. Besides that, Action is planning to activate and implement two additional modules in our SuccessFactors system: Compensation and Learning.

In our International Head Quarters we are looking for an interim HR Project Manager to support the HR and IT teams on these two projects (approximately 50/50 timewise). We are looking for someone who is tech savvy, has a sharp eye for detail, strong stakeholder management skills and elaborate knowledge of HR processes and systems (SuccessFactors and SAP HCM knowledge is a must).

Do you have a track record showing your outstanding project management skills? Are you able to work effectively with colleagues, suppliers and other stakeholders, to ensure project deliverables are realised and embedded in the organisation? Even in a remote working situation? Do you think you are a match with the Action Values and are you available for a new and challenging assignment? Then please keep reading.

What will you be doing on a daily basis?

You will be a member of the international HR Project Managers team. The main focus will be on managing parts of the Data Retention– and SuccessFactors projects together with the two project teams, ensuring a smooth and efficient execution of implementing these important changes in our HR systems and our organisation within the agreed timeline and budget.

As a HR Project Manager you will work in a team and manage the projects and their ongoing meetings, communications, action plans and reporting tasks. You will ensure accurate project information and data is securely retained and maintained. Within the role you will be dealing with strategic HR and IT stakeholders and you will play a key role for the implementation.
