Fiskars Group has a unique opportunity for a people development professional who wants to make the Everyday Extraordinary!
Director, People and Leadership Development
You will work on a global scale to build and implement a comprehensive people development plan that supports our strategic priorities and engages and retains our people.
You own and drive our Talent Management process, its philosophy, content and application in practice. You create measurable targets and bring business results through the development of our people. You partner with stakeholders such as Group level management in strategic people development related topics. You also partner with our business leaders and managers on different levels, as well as work closely with our professional HR team. Through this collaboration, you will identify the people development needs, design solutions and implement them. You will lead a small team of people development professionals.
We expect you to be a business-oriented people development professional with extensive experience of people development projects in an international environment. You demonstrate thought leadership and can get your ideas implemented through a collaborative way of working. Easy to approach and motivated by challenges, you maintain your positive attitude and see the big picture even when challenged yourself. Leading and contributing to projects comes naturally to you. You have most likely led teams before.
You have a Master’s degree (e.g. adult education, psychology, business) and English will be your daily working language. As this is a global role with teams in different continents and time zones, flexibility is a must. The job is based at our HQ in Helsinki, Finland and requires some travel. You will report to Chief Human Resources Officer of Fiskars Group and be part of the HR Leadership team.
You enjoy working in an international environment and communicating with colleagues from different cultures. We offer you the opportunity to develop and grow in a dynamic, enthusiastic and highly professional team.
