At Hunkemöller we believe great people power great brands. So, we’re looking for an exceptional HR Manager who can really get to grips with all the people matters for Scandinavia.

At the moment, this means Denmark, Sweden & Norway, where we continue to expand the coming years. This exciting opportunity is based in the Copenhagen area and if you're the right fit for us, you'll find yourself working as part of our dynamic international HR team. This is the perfect role for an experienced HR Manager who has a really hands-on attitude, who loves getting involved into running of a busy HR department, working with different legislations.

Together with your passionate HR team (2 HR Advisors and 1 intern/trainee), you'll manage the day-to-day operations, process flows and capabilities of all HR relevant matters across 3 countries, each with their own language and labour agreements. Taking responsibility for improving the current ways of working, you'll also look for new ways to create change for our people, systems and processes.  We pride ourselves on delivering World Class Service and you'll lead by example when dealing with your Regional - and Store Managers. You'd be also overseeing your team's close cooperation with our finance colleagues, who're in charge of running payroll.  

Hunkemöller strives to be a much loved, social & inclusive brand – with over 900 stores in 15 countries! A place where people love to work, are proud of the brand, and where we create true brand ambassadors. Working in a passionate, energetic, design-led and performance-driven environment where our key customer persona 'Shero' sits at the heart of everything we do.

Join our journey of being a much loved, social & inclusive brand and contribute to our success by performing these tasks:

  • Ensure that the daily HR operations are running smoothly. This entails that you work closely with your team to overlook workload, but also be able to step into the operations yourself – if the workload or complexity requires –
  • Working closely with HR Advisors, the Director of Retail and Regional Managers to find more efficient ways of working in an increasingly complex market. This is vital for a future expansion.
  • Working with the HR Advisors to make sure our vacancies are filled on time by candidates that have great experience and are perfect for our brand – to start your unique onboarding & training journey as we truly 'Hire for attitude & train for skills'
  • Being the expert in local labour market and legal/remuneration issues for your countries. Acting to interpret, advise and integrate these into our practices.
  • Analyzing & interpreting people relevant KPIs – in order to create a great place to work whilst being focused on delivering World Class Service to our customers, as this will benefit the business results naturally.
  • We truly believe all our employees deserve to enjoy our global people initiatives. Within the HR programs & systems landscape, several (global) systems & standards have been implemented over the past 4 years (Workday, HKM Online Academy etc). Your main challenge would be to further work on a smooth transition between old and new, whilst working together with our international peer to innovate.
  • Creating a culture that shies away from ‘traditional HR practices' and is focused on improving customer service, building our brand as an employer and developing our network of truly inclusive brand ambassadors.
  • Working closely with your direct manager, our Director of HR, Scandinavia, Spain, Benelux & France (who's based in our int. HQ in Amsterdam); as well as our international HR team, on a variety of local and international projects whilst remaining focused on our commitment to being a truly social business.

Our perfect HR Manager is a Hunkemöller brand ambassador & fan who…

  • Has at least 5 years' experience as a HR Manager in a multi-site business.
  • A real team player and influencer with an energetic positive outlook on life, who can drive change and be an inspirational leader.
  • Is fast-paced, structured, determined, persuasive and great communicator.
  • Is pro-active and works well both independently and as part of a team.
  • Is fluent in English and ideally fluent in either Swedish, Danish or Norwegian
  • Has experience in retail, hospitality or another service industry and is customer focused.
  • Can deal with deadlines, targets and multiple priorities.
  • - if/when the situation allows again – has a willingness to travel in the Nordics, but also to our international HQ in the Netherlands.
  • Has experience working with HR systems (ideally Workday, but also beneficial if you gained experience working with other HR/payroll systems or ATS already)
