Are you a professional and do you enjoy managing a team? Do you like a dynamic environment where there is still plenty of room for development? Then we are looking for you!
Together with a team of 15 to 20 people, you ensure optimum service to our stores, DC and (head) office employees. You anticipate the growth of Action and you realize what a department like HR Services needs to make this growth possible. Resource planning and People management are therefore very important; recruiting, evaluating and retaining the best possible colleagues is your primary focus. Your team is mainly involved in processing all administrative changes for colleagues in different countries where Action is operational in.
In addition to managing the team, you will often be involved in initiating process improvements within HR Services and collaborating with experts for a fast but accurate administration. You are the process owner of your part of the processes within HR Services. Besides that, you are also involved in projects aimed at optimization and effective implementation of new countries and distribution centres.
One of your other important responsibilities is stakeholder management; You are a point of contact for questions or requests within HR Services, for which you will have a lot of contact with the other HR expertises.
Action has grown so rapidly that we have set out to transform our HR department into a strategic ‘centre of excellence’. Within our department, Recruitment is responsible for recruiting new Action employees for our international headquarters and our Dutch country office. Compensation & Benefits is responsible for anything related to salary, bonuses, lease cars and other employment conditions. People Development organises training courses for colleagues working at our stores and distribution centres. HR Projects develops various projects aimed at increasing the added value of our HR department to the Action organisation and our Shared Service Centre provides various services to our country offices including payrolling. Finally, each support department has its own HR Business Partner focused on employee recruitment, internal and external mobility and departures and acts as an interface between the departments and our overarching HR team.
