Senior HR Consultant (Org Design)

Are you looking for a HR role that isn’t just business as usual?  ScottishPower are on a mission to revolutionise the UK’s approach to green energy and smart technologies. And we have an ambitious people strategy to enable that to happen. We recently reviewed our entire HR model to ensure that we were best positioned to meet the needs of a rapidly changing business. As a result, we have created a new team called HR Solutions.

Working in collaboration with the wider HR community at ScottishPower (and our parent company, Iberdrola), the HR Solutions team is set to become an agile internal consultancy service, with a fluid and flexible approach to managing people related projects across the business. The goal is to create a hub of subject matter experts and generalist consultants who work together to solve business issues and help move us towards our longer-term people vision.

We are looking for a Senior HR Consultant with a strong bias towards Organisational Design, and an interest in working in an agile, project-based environment.


As a member of the HR Solutions team, no two days will be the same. As a senior member of the team, you are likely to be leading project teams, partnering with senior leaders, and working on large-scale or high-profile people change initiatives. The pace of change at ScottishPower is significant, so you can expect to work on projects and issues without organisational precedent.

As our subject matter expert on Org anisatonal Design, you’ll be helping us shape our design standards and methodology, and support the upskilling of your colleagues.

Regardless of the projects you work on, the goal is to take an agile and collaborative approach, with a focus on identifying and addressing the root causes of issues. And as a senior member of this newly formed team, you’ll be working closely with our Head of HR Solutions to shape our overall consulting approach, project methodologies and delivery standards.

You can also expect to be:

  • Leading significant projects across the breadth of all HR technical competencies, either across the SP group or directly with individual businesses
  • Using appropriate models to assess the business requirements and readiness for change
  • Proactively engaging with stakeholders to accurately diagnose and determine the appropriate solutions that address business need and improve performance
  • Considering the changing market conditions, emerging trends, innovations and best practice in relation to determining the most appropriate solutions
  • Taking into account Employee Relations and Employment Law risks in a practical basis consistent with business appetite for compliance / risk
  • Proactively managing partnerships with HR Operations, HR specialists and external providers to ensure effective and realistic delivery of HR Solution is achieved
  • Coaching and supporting more junior team members and supporting their development

Skills and Experience

  • In-depth experience of HR methodologies, including change management to provide solutions to support HR and business operational plans
  • A subject matter expert in Organisational Design, with significant experience of different methodologies and approaches
  • Significant experience in delivering HR solutions, projects, workstreams and deliverables utilising project management disciplines
  • Experience or interest in operating in a collaborative agile model
  • Knowledge of employment legislation and HR best practice
  • Ability to make robust data-led decisions
  • Ability to work in partnership with the business and HR, and build effective relationships
  • Ability to formulate a plan and deliver the required outcomes
  • Strong stakeholder management skills with the ability to influence at all levels including HR Business Partners, project sponsors and trade union and employee representatives
