About the Role
You’re here because you care about the people just as much as you care about the business. As a People Business Partner, you will be a key leader for people development and org planning across the company and work closely with the senior leaders and people managers in your client groups.
Having a talented and agile Business Partner who understands how to navigate the complexity of a fast growth and ever changing environment will be crucial for our long term success. We need someone who can look around corners to make sure we are creating teams and processes that scale. This strategic and trusted advisor should be someone who cares a lot about culture and the people that form it; they will ensure we are maintaining and improving the elements that make Harry’s special by fostering an environment of diversity and inclusion. In true start-up fashion, this individual will have the opportunity to build and implement programs and processes from scratch with substantial impact.
What you will accomplish:
- Partner with your clients, People teammates and cross-functional collaborators to help run and improve all key people processes (promotion, compensation, performance management, Learning and Development, etc).
- Create org structures and working models that will scale, working collaboratively with e-team and Directors to identify needs, pain points, communication strategies and succession plans.
- Coach current and new employees in their development, career pathing and ability to navigate and resolve tricky challenges.
- Make the outstanding leaders you support even stronger, by providing guidance, cross-functional perspectives and 360 degree feedback.
- Infuse and drive diversity practices into Harry’s culture, values and engagement initiatives fostering an environment of inclusion and support.
- Identify opportunities to use technology and automation wherever you see inefficiencies to make everyone’s lives easier and enhance overall communication between teams.

- Life long learner. You love to teach and coach. You love learning new things and are not afraid to admit when you don’t know an answer.
