People Partner

United Kingdom
Permanent > People

Our mission is simple - we want to positively impact the future of the country by using technology to improve society. As a truly purpose-driven organisation, we believe the outcomes we create are more important than the technology we deliver.

We also believe this can happen best when our own team represents the society that actually uses the services we work on. At Made Tech, we’re collectively continuing to nurture a culture for people of all backgrounds and experiences, so we actively encourage people from underrepresented groups to apply for roles with us.


As a People Partner you’ll work closely with the Head of People, your peer People Partner and the wider People team. You will play a key part in shaping and delivering our people strategy that serves our people’s needs and is aligned with the company’s strategic goals/priorities.

Our people are our priority, after all we don’t provide products but a professional service.

Our culture mission is to build a nurturing, happy, healthy, safe and inspiring culture for everyone at Made Tech. As a People team, we need to represent and enable the voice of our people in other areas of the business who could easily spend most of their time on market or commercial strategies.


So what will your role involve?

You will partner across the business and support the delivery of the People Team goals. A true hands-on generalist, you will have the opportunity to add value and drive improvements on everything from People operations, to employee engagement, supporting our teams and line managers, and improving our employee experience.

As a team, we’ll continuously collaborate to prioritise workload based on requirements driven by data, people, markets and business goals.

You’ll also champion change and provide HR Generalist support. We’re looking for someone who can balance empathy, mentoring and supporting people with representing business needs and considering commercial impact.

You’ll have an opportunity to really grow with us as we grow. We’re committed to development and you’ll have opportunities to really broaden your knowledge, experience and strategic expertise whilst you’re here.
