  • Festicket is the world's leading B2C festival tour operator. We are undergoing the transition to B2B following our acquisition of Event Genius last year and have plenty of interesting challenges to face. We're now post Series-D funded, and backed by some of Europe's largest VC funds.

    We require a stand-alone HR Manager on a contract basis to work alongside the Head of Talent and deliver an efficient, solution-oriented HR service to the c-suite, managers and employees. This is an interesting and varied contract, where one day you may be solving the problem of how to hire in Spain, and the next coaching a less experienced manager through a sensitive conversation, before stepping into a meeting with the CEO to help discuss the merits of a specific project proposal or search campaign. The project-related tasks are varied and interesting, with the opportunity to shape thinking as the company goes through the next stage of it's evolution.

    • How to get the best out of an exec team
    • UK employment and contractual law
    • Experience with international employees
    • Contracts, administration and payroll

    Behaviours you will need to demonstrate in order to be successful:

    • Pragmatism - you will need to balance appetite for risk with operational effectiveness, all in support of commercial objectives
    • Confidence - you will be the most experienced HR person in the business, and must be comfortable guiding colleagues of all manner of levels of experience through people-related processes
    • Proactivity and problem-solving skills; Integrity when it comes to advising stakeholders on activities in support of commercial outcomes

    Additional characteristics we expect our entire team to demonstrate:

    • Adaptability and flexibility in the ever-changing world of a scale-up dealing with the challenges of a global pandemic that has hit the live music industry harder than most other sectors
    • Intellectual curiosity, and the confidence to ask questions until you understand
    • Positivity and a can-do mindset when faced with new opportunities
    • Self-motivation and a sense of pride in achieving stretch goals on your own merit
    • Comfort receiving and providing constructive criticism, as well as ‘managing upwards’
