An exciting opportunity exists for an experienced human resources professional to play a key role in Lorneville’s plant performance improvement programme through providing expert HR advice and support.  As a member of the Plant’s leadership team you will assist the Plant Manager in developing a performance focused culture.  You will also work with the GM Human Resources to deliver the company-wide HR strategy.

Specific responsibilities for this role include providing specialist advice in all aspects of employee and industrial relations, developing and managing the Plant HR plan and ensuring company employment policies and standards are met.  You will develop/support and implement plans as necessary in the areas of recruitment, training and leadership coaching, performance management and payroll and administration.
