Role Descriptions

Interim HR Director

Interim HR Director

Marble Hill Partners is a specialist provider of interim executive support to businesses undergoing rapid change and transformation.  Our Elite Interim Network is a hand-picked collection of high calibre, multi-functional executives who we deploy to help clients navigate the change process.  Interim HR Directors are an essential part of any management team looking to steer a business through a change programme.

How we help:

A significant proportion of Marble Hill Partners’ clients do not have board level representation of the human resources function. This is despite the fact that private equity backed businesses are typically growing rapidly and significantly adding to their head count as a result. In such circumstances an Interim HR Director from our Elite Interim Network can add significant value very quickly.

The professionalisation of the HR function is key to delivering sustainable growth for private equity backed organisations. In many cases, professional HR systems and processes are not in place, so the Elite Interim HR Directors that we introduce are expected to develop recruitment, training and career progression plans in line with the company’s growth strategy.

What we look for in Interim HR Directors:

We look carefully at the candidate’s mix of skills and experience, the type and size of organisations they’ve worked in and their personal attitude and approach.  In general, Interim HR Directors need to:

  • Have demonstrable board level experience of delivering rapid HR professionalisation in organisations with limited HR resource, systems or processes.
  • Be a commercial and strategic HR professional, capable of interacting at all levels of the organisation to deliver change in line with company cultures that are often strong and unique
  • Understand through past experience the private equity environment and the types of people that will perform well in these organisations, or demonstrate the right mindset to do so

Private equity investors expect Interim HR Directors to deliver a data and management information driven approach to help with future business decision making.
