This is a great opportunity to join a collaborative, high-performing HR community that encourages innovation in all we do.  There will be the opportunity to learn and develop skills and have exposure in all aspects of all-employee and senior reward from a total reward perspective.  The candidate will also have proximity to decision making and the ability to guide and influence incentive/benefit package design (depending on experience) through a collegiate approach to working between senior management, HR and Finance.
