Our group has gone through considerable growth over the past few years that brings with it the need for change. We are building a new HR Business Partner team that will support the Shimano Europe Group to continue to grow and evolve in the future.

We are a company of two parts. We have our heritage, our established ways, but also we are driven by innovation and a need for change. Whilst being customer focused, always ambitious and performance driven.

What does this mean for you? It means in some cases starting with the basics and being very practical. It means working at a fast pace, sometimes waking up in the morning not knowing which of your many priorities to work on. It can come with resistance (all changes do) but once confidence is built it comes with a real opportunity to make impact with topics you are passionate about.

To give you some insight, the priorities for 2022 are professionalizing workforce planning, talent management, finalizing a performance management system to name a few.

This role is in the Corporate Affairs Department, based in Eindhoven. Here the HR team will offer you enthusiasm and support, they will look to you for stakeholder management and problem solving.
In this role you will be responsible for our North West region including sites in Eindhoven, Nunspeet, Valkenburg (NL) & Mechelen (BE).

We are looking for someone who can easily switch between working at a strategic level and working pragmatically. A problem solver, who is proactive about it, ready to step in and support the team as mentioned above. You are a strong communicator, which means you can adapt to different audiences and build trust. Last but not least we are looking for a team player, interested in achieving its own goals but also supporting (direct) colleagues to succeed.

Is this you?

  • Support the achievement of strategic objectives through effective people planning and actions;
