JOB DESCRIPTION / ROLE
A rapidly growing group consisting of two companies from the fintech and company incorporation industries has a well-established team based in Dubai. The new position of Generalist HRBP will provide support to both organisations and will manage a current headcount of approximately 35-40 employees. The role will require those with a strong understanding of local UAE labour law and best practices to foster an engaging environment and to fully support the people agenda for the future of the business.
Upon joining the company, you will review the existing policies and procedures and ensure they are robust and compliant with both labour law and DMCC freezone requirements. Rolling out new initiatives concerning employee wellbeing and compensation and benefits, you will have a strong grasp of the current market and obtain data insights to support any changes. Hands on and highly operational, this role will also manage the day-to-day HR administration and employee cycle. You will therefore develop recruitment and on/off boarding strategies, be heavily involved in the selection of any new joiners, manage talent acquisition, performance reviews and learning and development plans. The HRBP will also identify any skills gaps, ensure all data is managed on the HRIS accurately and resolve any ER issues in a professional manner. Reporting into the Senior EA & Office Manager, who in turn reports into the Managing Director, you will work very closely with this senior team to align all HR goals to fit with overall business strategy and objectives. This will include a strong focus on headcount growth and employee engagement activities.
We are seeking a hands-on and operational Generalist HRBP with a minimum of 3 years of UAE exposure. This role would also suit those looking for their first stand-alone HR managerial role. You require excellent communication skills across all levels of seniority, a motivated, approachable and robust personality and a professional approach to influence HR decision making in the future. Those with a HR related degree or additional CIPD qualifications are highly desirable, and we expect that candidates will have no more than a 1 month notice period.
