Why Join Oscar?

Our achievements, awards, and positive reputation (4.5+/5 on Glassdoor) are what truly represent our aim to grow and develop to continuously enhance and improve what we do every single day.

We are leading specialists within distinct brand across the Technology, Digital, Life Sciences, Energy (both Oil & Gas and Renewables), and Construction sectors across our key territories of UK, USA, and mainland Europe; we thrive off our cohesive culture and consistent year on year growth across our seven offices.

There is no secret to our success; it is down to our people.

We are no ordinary company; this is no ordinary role, and you are not an ordinary HR professional. There is A LOT going on; fast paced & dynamic would be serious understatements.

The Role

Being transparent we are demanding too; reading the above you will see we are ambitious, and our environment is key to our growth - you will be the guardian of our corporate compliance and champion the wellbeing of our team and W2 contractor work force.

Our environment is a performance culture, but is values led. This means at times you may be counsellor, confidant & body of support. So, trust, empathy, understanding & great listening skills are necessary.

Organization must be your middle name; you never miss a beat - spreadsheets, project management, or pad & pen, you are granular. You will want to do important things and have exceptional attention to detail!

You will work in our "People & Culture Department," but will have close ties to our US Managing Director, the Talent Acquisition, Payroll, Operations, IT, and Contractor Care teams.

  • Provide advice and guidance on Data Protection, Health and Safety as well as performing Risk Assessments
  • Provide advice and guidance to senior leadership team on legislative regulations and changes to Employment Law
  • Review, Update and Administer new Policies and Procedures as required
  • Keeping track and advising the business on multi state employment laws/regulations
