Human Resources

Are you our next People Systems Executive? This role will shape and develop the People systems to ensure they are fit for purpose for Gymshark and enable the People function to deliver a seamless global employee journey. You will be responsible for maintaining and optimising the GS people system, as well as managing the end-to-end testing of all newly developed features and processes within the systems. You will be a vital link between the system and the people projects and people partner teams.

The role requires someone to be approachable, supportive and data led with an analytical and inquisitive mindset. You will need to be tenacious to manage the implementation and optimisation from start to finish.

Someone who wants to be part of a team that lifts each other up; a team that fails together and celebrates together. Someone who likes each day to be different, the challenge of doing things differently, and the freedom to figure things out for themselves. We work hard, sure, but we have a laugh while we do it. Sound like you?
