HR Lead


Is this opportunity for me?

We’re a small consultancy looking for HR Lead to help us grow and shape the next phase of our development. We are looking for someone who is highly collaborative, with experience in an SME or consultancy desirable. You’ll be given significant autonomy to shape both your role and the company. If this sounds like it might be of interest to you, please read on to get a feel for who we are.

Longer Version

Deliberate is a small software consultancy that was built on the belief that “surely there has to be a better way?”. Founded by two passionate problem solvers, Deliberate helps its clients to build tech that works for them and fulfills their needs. Deliberate was founded in 2014 and since then, we have worked with many different clients in the e-commerce space enabling them to better serve their customers and provide tools to enable their staff to solve problems with ease.

From the early days of Deliberate, we worked with a network of trusted independent partners to help us deliver valuable software. In the midst of the 2020 craziness, we made a crazy decision of our own and hired our first employee. A few months later we hired our second, then our third. Now we’re looking for our first professional services hire, to lead on our growth, ensuring we have systems to support the team through their entire employee life cycle- join, grow, thrive!

We believe every person is unique and has something valuable to offer, so whether you spend your weekends reading People Management, out on walks or spending quality time with your loved ones, we would love to hear from you and have a chat.

Our new teammate will be excited by, and responsible for:

  • Recruitment process: You’ll work with our external recruiters to bring in new team mates, support the interview logistics, make employment offers and pre onboarding checks
  • Onboarding: You’ll design and deliver an onboarding process which sets team mates up for long term success at Deliberate
  • Systems & Payroll: Implement systems to hold team mates records in compliance with GDPR and enable a smooth payroll process
  • Benefits: As we grow, you’ll manage existing benefits and help us implement more with time
  • Policies: Deliberate will need policies for compliance and policies which help us shape our offerings and culture.
  • Learning journeys: While on the job learning is rounded at Deliberate, you’ll help to identity skills gaps, options for further professional development and coaching opportunities across the team
  • Strategy support: Part of the role will be focusing on the Health, Wellness and Safety, Career Development and Engagement and Satisfaction of Plan B Certification
  • Office logistics: While we are virtual, some systems are in development and will require support (invoicing etc) and flex on the HR leads part


We are 100% remote and don’t expect that to change in the foreseeable future! We aim to do a team social every few months to remember just how tall people are.
