The Role

You will be reporting to the APAC Head of HR based out of Hong Kong. It is a generalist role looking after an employee population of approximately 300 people in a number of locations. This role will support a new CEO so they need someone who has in depth experience in Vietnam. The role will include setting the strategy for HR for the next 5 years, review/build capability of the HR team/senior leaders and help with recruitment as the organization is growing rapidly.  

The Individual

The individual they need is someone who can be hands on with strategy. This is not going to be for someone who is a traditional head of HR with a team of 20. This person will need to be someone who can build rapport with the CEO and team around them while getting stuck in to the detail. Then as the business grows this person will need to take a step back and be happy with guiding the company through this period strategy wise.
