This is a unique opportunity to lead and develop our People Partner team across 5 offices (AT, UK, US, PL and BG). You will not only partner with our VP of People on strategy and deliverables, but also act as a senior partner to the business and lead by example on a strategic and day to day operational level to help elevate our service provision to the next level.

This is a full-time position based in our headquarters in Vienna. We currently operate a hybrid model and would love for you to come into the office 2-3 times per week.

Some of the things you'll work on:

  • Partner with our VP of People to shape, and deliver on successful global People Partner strategies/processes and work with your peers in the People team on global projects that drive Adverity towards the successful achievement of its OKRs.
  • Represent DACH in global initiatives as well as lead, grow and develop our global People Partner team responsible for overseeing the entire employee journey in all our territories.
  • Have regular touchpoints with global business units/functions, to ensure business transformation, change management and talent management is delivered and supported for international teams.
  • Provide operational advice and guidance to managers, helping them to better understand how to manage their people and maximise their potential. Use your skills to proactively contribute to, and drive, our Talent Development program.
  • Manage the enhancement and implementation of our regular People Partner cycles, including performance management, change management projects, compensation and benefits reviews, and talent management.
  • Identify, track and report on key People metrics to assist in your decision making and planning.
  • Provide leadership and oversight of People compliance, ensuring compliant processes and alignment with local and international employee laws and regulations, and managing the quality of all people data, policies, processes, and procedures.

We're excited if you have:

  • Proven success in fast-paced SaaS/Tech SME businesses with experience in managing or leading global People Partnering teams, shaping and delivering on successful strategies and day to day operational tasks, and proven experience in developing team members.
  • Demonstrable experience in creating, leading and executing Talent Management as well as Talent Development processes autonomously, including performance reviews, succession planning, career pathing, and skill gap assessments.
  • Broad global technical experience - an up to date knowledge of Austrian Labour Law (IT-KV/CBA). Understanding of UK, US, Polish and/or Bulgarian Labour Law is a plus.
  • Experience in leading on complex employee relations, including handling ER cases, is essential.
  • Ability to make data-driven decisions and set KPIs. Good analytical skills and advanced proficiency with Google Workspace, HRIS (ideally Personio) and Engagement platform (ideally CultureAmp).
  • Innovative in nature with a ‘can do’ attitude. Self-confidence and decisive leadership with excellent listening skills, emotional maturity and the ability to adapt to a rapidly changing environment.
  • Written and verbally fluent in English and German. Superior communication, influencing, and persuasion skills.

Why you’ll love it here:

  • Flexible working hours and the option to work from home
  • Internal shares program (EDPP)
