HR Business Partner for G-STAR HQ

HR Business Partner for G-STAR HQ

Job description

Here’s what we’ll do together:
Are you passionate about HR and denim? We are looking for an experienced, retail minded and eager HR Business Partner to join the team.

Just imagine –
As our new HR Business Partner, you’ll be in charge of the full employee-cycle at G-Star’s Global HQ and some of our international offices.

You are our organization’s key driver for HR functional excellence and process improvement. That means coaching our management and employees on topics from onboarding to exit, from job evaluation to talent management. Also, you are an expert on managing absenteeism. And you always keep seeing the bigger picture by driving the development of HR within the organization.

You’re already a solid HR Business Partner who’s used to the playing field of a rapidly changing (fashion) retail environment and the dynamics and challenges that brings to your daily responsibilities. With and without asking you support your business partners to help them achieve business goals by advising on the right approach from an HR perspective while you initiate ideas to improve employee engagement.

Also you are an important sparring partner within the HR team as you work closely with our HR managers, Recruitment, Payroll and HR assistants.


What you bring to the table:
• Building strong (HR) partnerships comes naturally to you
• With your strategic and analytical skills you’re able to balance the interests of your stakeholders and to interface at all levels of our organization
• Extensive knowledge of Dutch (and preferably international) labor law
• Add a Master/Bachelor and 5+ years of relevant experience as a HR Business Partner in an international corporate environment and you’ve got our full attention.
• Are you also a self starter, proactive and result-oriented?

Finally, do you have a strong personality and excellent verbal and written communication skills in Dutch and English? We’d love to meet you!

What we bring to the table:
Beyond a competitive salary, working at G-Star brings so many perks and exciting opportunities, we don’t know where to begin… how about an awesome and diverse team that collaborates to change the game; a work environment that offers room for fun, inspiration and innovation; a clothing budget so generous that we challenge you to spend it all; a healthy, fresh and delicious lunch so you can keep up the greatness… and to exercise what you eat, we even offer you discounts on fitness and a new bicycle.

Found your dream job?
• We will grab our magnifying glass and will thoroughly check your CV. So please make our work easier by applying in English
• When we hopefully find what we are looking for, we will call you for a quick chat and make sure that there are no blurred lines and will plan our first interview
• While you enjoy a fresh ginger/mint tea or a soy latte at our beautiful HQ we subject you to meaningfull questions of life
• Because we’re very curious how you survive a mission impossible, we ask you to prepare a real life business case in a follow-up interview
• When we’re both ready to commit to each other, we’ll finalize the terms we’ve discussed in our phone chat and we’ll explain to you how to order your first pair of denim from the G-Star employee store
