Senior HR Business Partner - Corporate Operations Group, Legal & Governance


As a Senior HR business partner supporting our Corporate Operations Group and Group Legal and Governance groups, you will play an important role in partnering with senior leaders to deliver impactful people initiatives that drive employee engagement and high performance. Your ability to drive change, use insights to equip decisions and influence stakeholders will be critical to your success.  

The client portfolio supports our Group General Counsel and Australian and International based leaders across our Operations, Business Services, Corporate Operations Group Central team, Human Resources, Macquarie Group Foundation and Business Improvement & Strategy. The scope of the role is strategic advisory, with some tactical elements, and will require you to leverage your proven expertise across the disciplines of people, culture, engagement, diversity, equity & inclusion, reward and employee relations. Your ability to proactively drive change, use insights and data to equip decision makers, and influence stakeholders will be critical to your success. 

As a capable, HR professional you will be equipped for the depth and diversity of responsibilities. Broadly, these will range from delivering on divisional people initiatives, including aligning performance, capability, talent and reward, through to people strategy; collaboration on business initiatives and providing divisional input into Group-wide programs; and exposure to all levels of seniority. You enjoy providing an exceptional experience by going above and beyond in your role which has a lasting and positive impact across the business.

You will need to be highly self-motivated, able to demonstrate a proven and successful record of delivery, collaboration, and influence within a fast-paced, high-performing, matrixed environment.  Strong verbal and written communication skills and a natural ability to engage and provide coaching at all levels are essential; being able to relate commercial and people insights, and engender trust and confidence is necessary to interact with senior management.  Holding degree qualifications, a stable and progressive career to date and an ambitious and dynamic work approach is needed as this is a progressive and dynamic environment in which to work. Exposure within an environment and experiencing digital, technological or market disruption will be an advantage, as will be your resilience and demonstrated capability in managing change and building organisational capability.

If this sounds like your next career move, we would like to hear from you!
