People Operations Lead
Hamilton, NZ
1d ago

Gallagher is New Zealand’s top privately owned tech exporter, and global market leader, focused on protecting what matters most to customers around the world.

Starting in the 1930s with a revolutionary idea for stopping Joe the horse from using the car as a scratching post, our 1200 strong team now protects some of the most high-security environments and agriculture businesses around the world.

Our technology secures prisons to palaces, universities to technology parks, government buildings to global businesses. And in farming we’re leading the world with virtual fencing, remote water monitoring, plug and play livestock weighing, and much more.

We love it when our customers say our products are slick, smooth, simple, reliable, and intuitive. And our goal is for everyone in #TeamGallagher across the globe to say the same things about their day-to-day employee experiences they are just as important to us as our customers.

Who we’re looking for

We’re looking for a People Operations Lead to head up our new People Operations team within our People & Brand function.

With a focus on brilliant simplicity, and ongoing innovation of our operational effectiveness, the leader of this team will be passionate about creating delightful moments that matter across each touchpoint of the employee lifecycle.

We’re looking for someone to help us transform our employee experience.

They’ll be responsible for :

  • Creating the long-term strategic plan for People Operations, and driving quarterly goal outcomes
  • Building our talent pipeline by collaborating with Business Partners and the OD team to develop a strong Employee Value Proposition and employer brand
  • Co-designing, implementing and maintaining our remuneration and incentive framework
  • Ownership of our HRIS and related systems and data, including creating the business case for future improvements
  • Continuous improvement of our people processes challenging the status quo, and seeing opportunities to create greater efficiencies with fewer clicks.
  • But we’re not just looking for someone who can tick these boxes. We like to think our People Operations Lead will be akin to a Formula 1 mechanic.

    Not only do you know every part of our engine and how it works, but you’re also always looking for ways to shave fractions of seconds off the clock.

    You know that data is the key to making great decisions, and it needs to be easy to collate and consume. You also know you’re not just working on today’s race and getting your hands dirty fixing the gear box now, you’re planning for how you can make the F1 car go faster next month, next year and beyond.

    You’ll be awesome at :

  • Getting the new People Ops team set up and really humming using continuous improvement cycles, drawing on regular insights from our global team
  • Collaborating across our wider #TeamGallagher especially with colleagues in IS, Finance, and Legal
  • Creating policies that act as guardrails, rather than a prescriptive word syrup, and processes if required that are short and intuitive
  • Taking an adaptive approach to propelling us forward being pragmatic not seeking perfection
  • Creating systems that are trusted, reliable and easy to use
  • Knowing leadership is about collaboration and coaching rather than control
  • This is a solid challenge for an experienced People Operations leader who has done this type of work before, relishes the opportunity to make a big impact, and is looking to do meaningful connected work that will make a massive difference to our rapidly growing global team.

    What we offer

    As well as working at a global level to protect what matters most, it’s the culture at Gallagher that results in 94% of our people saying they are proud to work here.

    We’re proudly based in the Waikato, and although many of our team live round here too (and love escaping the rat race), flexible working means you can live almost anywhere.

    When you’re in the office, we have free parking, subsidised on-site café and great eateries nearby.

    We also offer :

  • Ongoing professional development opportunities, including international travel.
  • Competitive salary and bonus opportunities, as well as company laptop, and mobile phone.
  • Access to our community giving programme, enabling you to do some volunteer work, ask Gallagher to make a donation to an organisation you’re involved in, or take part in a corporate challenge.
  • Discounts at some of New Zealand’s favourite stores.
  • If you want to join a family-oriented environment, described by one of our newest recruits as an an open minded and communicative culture then you need to talk to us.
