As our Senior HRBP Becky supports the business in delivering its people strategy so that our Life-Changing People feel supported, engaged and valued. Her role is varied and as Becky says ‘There is no typical day in HR’. A perfect night in would be hosting a dinner party for David Suchet (in character as Poirot), Beyonce, Charles Dickens and her husband. Now that would be a party worth attending!
We understand that it’s through our people that we will achieve our vision. They are the most important asset in our business, as they bring to life what we do
I was attracted to work at Lifetime as I was excited about the prospect of working with a market leading organisation which was experiencing significant growth and success within its field. From my interview, I could really see how the people agenda would shape and support the continued success of the business and the opportunity to be part of this was too tempting to turn down! The DNA behaviours also really resonated with me – and since joining the team I can really see how relevant these behaviours are to our Life-Changing People!
The pace, aspiration and pioneering nature of the business. We are a fast paced dynamic company and with the right business case and rationale, new ideas are welcomed and can become reality very quickly! The fact that through our work, we are all supporting the Lifetime learners, is also very rewarding.
My day can be very varied. I can be supporting managers with day to day people management activity, working with the Senior Management Teams to create and implement their people plans and supporting on project activity relating to people initiatives for the business. In my role, I work with my team to ensure we are delivering against these areas and to track our progress through measurable such as our recent engagement scores. There is no typical day in HR!
Here at Lifetime, we understand that it is through our people that we will achieve our vision. They are the most important asset in our business, as they bring to life what we do. The success of a sector, function or department depends on the performance and behaviours of our people. My role, and the role of all of my team, is integral to the success of our business as we work to support our management teams in recruiting, on boarding, engaging and motivating our teams – ultimately making Lifetime a great place to work!
If you can relate to our DNA behaviours and if the prospect of working in a company that promotes and fosters these behaviours excites you, then you will be successful at Lifetime.
Also, the drive and aspiration to make a difference – as you will have the opportunity to do this at Lifetime. Whether as a Regional Apprenticeship Trainer, working with our learners or in a support function team, working to support our business in providing the best experience for our learners, you really can make your mark .
Recruiting a number of new team members in my first six months and collaborating to agree the future direction of the function through the design and implementation of our HR ways of working.
Through a supportive manager and wider management teams who are all keen to continue to improve the working environment for our people. We all recognise that you can always do more and I am supported through how willing and open our people are to consider new approaches and challenge current thinking.
My greatest success was also a significant challenge – recruiting three new team members in my first six months has meant we have need to pull together in the interim. The business is a friendly and collaborative place to work and everybody has been great in supporting whilst the team has been built to full capacity. I’ve now recruited a great team who are all as passionate as I am about delivering against our people agenda.
Fun, dynamic, varied and challenging!
A dynamic, growing organisation where you really have the opportunity to make a difference to people’s lives.
If this all sounds exciting to you, then definitely apply – you will not regret it
