Brandscapes Worldwide - Head - Human Resource Management (10-15 yrs)

Mumbai Job Code: 898045

Salary Offered : 17-24 LPA

Brandscapes Worldwide ( is a global marketing insights, research and analytics firm operating with offices in India (Mumbai, Bangalore, Bhubaneswar), Singapore, Myanmar (Yangon), UAE (Dubai), UK (London) and USA (Atlanta). The company has grown rapidly since its inception in 2005, and currently has a 250 member work force servicing global clients like Coca-Cola, Unilever, Johnson & Johnson, Visa, Carlsberg, 3M, Colgate Palmolive. Our client list last year was in excess of 70 companies.

- Our operating people tend to come with marketing, branding, market research, analytics, statistics and data science backgrounds. We do have a strong bench of senior experienced professionals (with 15 plus years industry experience) in the Leadership Team and Executive Committee. However, our average age is in the late 20's. So, we need to be sensitive to the needs, attitudes and behaviours of young talent in the knowledge industry.

- As the Head of HR you will be responsible for the entire human resource function, both at the strategic level (working closely with the Leadership Team) as well as driving operational excellence (talent acquisition, talent retention, rewards management, performance management, skill enhancement, staff happiness and motivation, etc.)..

- As an HR Head of the organization, you must be an experienced professional with deep knowledge of all matters concerning HR, particularly in a knowledge & service based industry (e.g. market research agency, consultancy, data analytics services, advertising industry). Experience of working with young professionals across country boundaries would be a definite advantage.

- People are our assets, and happy motivated people are critical to our success. Our salary structure is aligned with the market research and analytics industry levels, but we are not the highest pay masters.

- You goal would be to help align and manage the HR priorities to ensure that we attract and retain the best talent in the industry, without necessarily paying the highest level of salary.
