HR Vacancies?

Hi everyone You may have guessed from my last few posts that my new role was extremely challenging. No policies/procedures in place and very badly run by senior management. I have literally been banging my head against a wall. They couldn't even get my contracted working hours right....one manager thought X and another Y so I was constantly confused!!!! My job has now come to a mutually agreed end so if anyone knows of any roles in the South West of England, please let me know. I am available immediately Many thanks Lisa

  • I find myself in a similar situation - all the best with your job hunt!
  • Me too - end of maternity cover contract looming. Good luck on your job hunt.
  • If you're anywhere near Bristol then speak to Fiona Vennbrook at Purple House Recruitment is a fantastic specialist HR recruiter. She was really helpful when I was looking for a new HR role this summer.
  • I too am still looking. I have just been told that although my experience is excellent, they felt that I was too strong a candidate. It turns out the Director is a bit of a bully and doesn't really respect his HR team and only wants them as advisory. I don't know what to do now, do I stick to my principles or do I become a "wet blanket" as they recruitment consultant suggests if what they are looking for. I'm dumbfounded. Good luck in you search and keep telling yourself the right job is out there.

    Good idea Victoria! I haven't used Purple House myself but did receive very positive feedback about them when I was last on the job market.
    Lisa - wishing you the very best in your job hunt, I hope you find the enforced change proves to be a silver lining.
  • Another vote for Fiona Vennbrook at Purple House HR.

    And good luck with your search.

    Hello to all the South Westers!

  • In reply to Joanne O'Hagan:

    Thank you everyone for your supportive comments. I am actually happy and relieved to be out of such a toxic environment. I couldn't do right for doing wrong...I am 51 yrs old, worked all my life and I have never before been told "when you are on the phone in future, go in a meeting room as you are very loud"....it was a huge open plan floor with many companies on a construction site so lots of noise....
    They were non compliant on HR, quality and safety and they only employed me to "tick a box" so didn't like me pointing out their failings.
    I am enjoying the break but look forward to getting back to work..
    Hopefully soon
