HR Manager

{{ flashMessage.message }}


Employment: Full Time

This is a unique opportunity to truly lead the direction of the HR Manager role, as it is the first time the function has been brought in-house for this boutique investment firm in the DIFC. Offering regional investor opportunities, the organisation also works with global partners to provide an exceptionally high level of service to their clients. Currently at a headcount of approximately 35 employees, they have seen significant growth in the last few years and the HR function has been managed by an external consultant. However, with further growth expected it now requires a Generalist HR Manager from within the financial services industry to take the business forward.

Working to support a tight knit and highly motivated team, you will be considered as the HR expert for the organisation. Ensuring all HR policies and procedures are in place and fit for purpose, development of KPIs, review of job descriptions, compensation and benefits and all HR administration will fall under the responsibly of this sole HR Manager role. It requires a person with exceptional communication and people centric skills, employee engagement capabilities and a strong understanding of the benefits a HR function can add to the business. You will present and update new strategies to the senior team and the overall aim is to implement, execute, and manage internal development programmes for all employees in order for the company to be a great place to work for many years to come.


A very Generalist HR Manager function at the core of the business, this new position would suit a self-motivated candidate with a strong understanding of regional labour laws and HR best practices. Therefore, you should possess a relevant HR qualification (CIPD preferred) and 3-5 years of experience in a similar role from the financial services sector. You will have the passion to drive the HR strategy forwards and an engaging personality to influence and oversee employees across all levels of seniority. This is a great new role where you can really develop the HR function to support the future of this well-established investment management company.
