Vacancy: Strategic HR Business Partner

In line with the company-wide transformation, Kramp is also undergoing an HR transformation, shifting from an operational way of working towards a strategic and proactive approach. As a strategic and business-minded individual, the Strategic HR Business Partner embodies these changes, with a specific focus on supporting the supply chain and operational organizations. They partner with Kramp’s Executive Board and Leadership Team members and are involved in strategic discussions. The Strategic HRBP translates the overall strategy into the People and Organization agenda for the relevant departments, for which they lead the implementation.

The Strategic HRBP has a pan-European outlook and is ready to travel ~30% of the time. They focus on strategic and long-term HR topics such as organizational design, governance, strategic workforce planning, leadership, succession planning, and talent and performance management. As part of an e-commerce focused company, the Strategic HRBP is also concerned with themes around e.g. near-shoring / off-shoring, data strategy and skills, warehouse footprint, continuous improvement culture, temp-to-fix ratios, and health and safety. They also provide thought leadership on process automation and its impact on work processes and people.

As an experienced HR Business Partner, they understand business needs. They know which KPIs drive value and how people and the way things are organized can be the key to success. They also partner with HR expertise centers to continuously improve HR practices, such as frameworks, policies, culture, and values. Hybrid working is possible.
