Job description

Are you passionate about providing first class HR business partnering? And do you want to challenge the traditional approach to HR? Then join us at USTC and be part of an amazing journey of establishing an HR organisation that works globally on a wide array of HR initiatives supporting our organisational transformation.


Right now, we are embarking on a significant transformation in United Shipping and Trading Company (USTC), that consists of independent companies such as Bunker Holding Group, SDK, Uni-Tankers, Selected Car Group and Unit IT.


As a Senior HR Business Partner, you will work closely with the Management Teams in selected USTC companies and play an essential role as key driver of integrating HR deliveries within the company. Our journey is ambitious, unique and holds many opportunities for you to shape the role and leave your mark.


Based in our headquarters in Middelfart, you will report to our Head of Transformation & Leadership and be part of a HR Business Partner team covering all companies within USTC.


Ensuring that HR deliveries are providing business value


You will join a team of currently 4 dedicated colleagues and work primarily with one of the companies within USTC. You will be working in close collaboration with the Management team to ensure that all HR-related initiatives are aligned with and prioritised with the company’s goals and business plans and delivered on a local, regional, and global scale.


As Senior HR Business Partner, you will be supported by specialist knowledge and competencies from our USTC HR Centre of Excellence concerning design, execution and continuous follow up on HR initiatives and deliverables.


Furthermore, as the key HR representative, you will take part in building the yearly HR roadmap to ensure that the strategic priorities are converted into tangible value-driven HR deliverables.


Commercially orientated with an agile and proactive mindset


To deliver on our strategy, we are looking for two experienced HR professionals with a very strong commercial flair and interest, who want to take part in building and delivering world-class HR across all our companies in close partnership with the business.


To succeed in this role, you have 10+ years directly related HR experience preferably in an international organisation or consultancy firm. You possess a very high level of business, commercial, and strategic understanding, where your influence and collaboration skills will be essential to your success. You likely have a university degree within business administration, organisation, management or similar. Additionally, you possess:

  • A versatile and in-depth HR toolbox with knowledge of “best practices” applied to the given context.
  • Extensive knowledge of the typical HR processes in the annual HR cycle.
  • Strong stakeholder management skills with a proven track-record of HR business co-creations, which deliver ROI.

Thriving in the duality of working with tactical HR business planning while also being closely involved in the daily HR operations is paramount for your long-term motivation in this role. As this is a newly established role, there will be a continuous evolvement of the role and the responsibilities.
