Netflix is recruiting for a  seasoned Director of HR to join our team in the London office to support our rapidly growing UK teams. The focus of this role is to assess, coach and influence the business as we scale and evolve to enable our teams to accomplish amazing things. The Director will be to partner with several of our leaders based in EMEA  and also remain closely connected with the HR team in the HQ in Amsterdam.
The Ideal Candidate
At Netflix, our culture shapes who we are and how we operate.  We need someone who is just as passionate about the culture as they are about the work they are doing in the business.
Our ideal candidate will understand the business, culture and foster an appreciation of the creative process. Will be a shining example of what it means to be a stunning colleague – living our values, understanding how our culture comes to life, and possessing a deep knowledge of the business.  Will play a key role in the growth of our teams.
This role is unique in the sense that you’ll be responsible for driving decisions on organization design, compensation, employee development, and much more.  You’ll learn the business and culture inside and out so that you are able to provide strategic HR partnership to the business leaders and the teams you support to enhance the growth and impact of those teams to the business. In this role, leading, demonstrating, redefining and modelling the Netflix culture is a top priority.
The ideal candidate will be a dynamic and thoughtful leader with a collaborative and influential leadership style, the ability to inspire others into action and to think creatively about solutions. The right person for this role must have comfort with ambiguity, and able to make quick, well-informed decisions. She/he will embody our culture of Freedom and Responsibility through their behaviour and interactions daily and be willing to invite, receive and promote constructive feedback.
She/he will exude curiosity about our business and have a proven track record of rapid self-learning.  She/he will value inclusion, diversity of opinions and people, and every member of the team, regardless of their title. She/he will be constantly aware of the trends and development in the international HR environment.
The right person for this role must have a passion for the business and be driven to accomplish and meet objectives. This position is responsible for providing wise counsel (not HR best practices for HR sake) to the business and successfully influencing and supporting strategies to meet our business objectives.
This position requires a solid progressive and senior human resources experience in the entertainment industry internationally, as an HR Business Partner/HR Director.
This person should have well-developed coaching, communication, and leadership skills and should provide an example of excellence to all that he/she interacts with. Having successfully coached and influenced individual contributors and managers is a must for this position.
A background in organizational development and previous experience in L&D is also a plus.
