HR Business Partner at Tessian
London, GB

At Tessian, we believe our people are our single most important asset, so we're looking for a HR Business Partner to curate amazing employee experiences at Tessian.


You'll help shape and deliver an incredible employee lifecycle, from offer, on-boarding, appraisals, benefits, and social activities, right through to off-boarding and alumni contact. You'll work to make Tessian the best possible place to develop a career, striving to ensure our culture, package, feedback and development opportunities help people thrive at every step of their Tessian journey.


In this role, you'll be a key stakeholder in achieving our shared ambitions and growth, liaising with all areas of the business to realise our goals and values. Your driver will be to empower and support every team member to achieve brilliance, and ensure Tessian continues to be worthy of the passion and dedication each employee brings to the office.


Whilst championing our culture and values, you'll be a critical collaborator with Tessian's Talent Acquisition team, providing guidance to help ensure our commitment to amazing employee experiences starts long before a person's join date, and help define and deliver our development processes so that the benefits of a Tessian career long outlive an employee's last day.


You'll be comfortable working at an operational level as well as setting up processes from scratch, being employees' first point of contact for enquiries and advice, and you'll be a self-starter, willing to research and iterate new ideas.
