Transformation is the name of the game today and it brings about an above average level of ambiguity at times. Our client organization is in the middle of a similar journey …It is expanding aggressively, there is a need for the integrating the culture piece and defining the purpose as many new entrants from the mid to senior level are in play.
Using culture as the “strategy enabler” you would be the guiding light that ensures that the organizations values and vision are cascaded across the board. Align the organizational strategy to ensure that the business strategy is not only supported it also enables the organization to reach the next level.
What we need you to bring to the table is holistic well rounded experience preferably from the consumer goods industry, you should be leading the function for a sizeable organization currently and more importantly your track record should reflect your……………………….ability to ….Change The Game.
As the business is seeing aggressive positive movement the need of the hour is to have an Human Resources professional with excellent business understanding and has the following abilities….and there is a reason why..

Acomfort with Confrontation… i.e. the ability to lead in the face of adversity.
Hands on leadership.. i.e. the ability to lead as well as execute
A “Croc” skin.. i.e. the ability to deal with the good & bad, Crisis & recognition in your stride…. above all not afraid to fail.
