The focus for this role for the next 12 months is to bring together the People Services organisation, refocus the teams reporting into the role to have a country focus and work as one country focused team (previously these teams have reported into different leaders in HRS). This role will need to align to the needs of the country they support.
This role also needs to review the people management strategy within the team, personal and performance objectives, Service Level Agreements and the focus for the individuals, in order for them to deliver the customer service expected from People Services.
