Contract Type

BioPhorum’s mission is to create environments where the global biopharmaceutical industry can collaborate and accelerate its rate of progress, for the benefit of all.

Ranked as one of Europe’s fastest-growing companies by the Financial Times for 2020, BioPhorum continues to go from strength to strength. In these very challenging times, we are uniquely positioned to help the global BioPharma industry collaborate on some of the most significant challenges it has ever faced. Our established remote working model makes us agile and resilient and has enabled us to expand the support for our members at this crucial time, helping them navigate these challenges via a collaboration platform they trust and value.

We are a learning organisation and our key strategy for growth is to motivate and manage the best talent in the biopharmaceutical industry. As a result, we are looking for a Human Resources Manager to provide a generalist HR service to the business, running our HR Operations and giving guidance, coaching and support to all levels of managers and employees.

You will be a ‘hands on’ HR Manager with a focus on coaching and developing managers to ensure processes are defined, embedded and implemented consistently and updated as the business grows. You will have the ability to develop longer term people initiatives yet drive execution tactically and manage the balance between the two. Key projects for the role will be defining and codifying our HR process and building an internal learning and development programme.

Continued business growth will give the right person an opportunity to grow and develop within the business and to make this role their own. This is a fully remote role and there is the option for the role to be delivered four days per week.
