Senior HR Advisor

Name: Robert Brunger Brand: Aliaxis 
Role: Senior HR Advisor   Location: Lenham  

If you speak to anyone in the business that’s currently working here they will say one of the best things about Aliaxis is the people and that’s what makes the organisation.


Describe your typical day 

Being employed in a generalist HR role means I get involved with lots of different things, there’s no such thing as a typical day. In the HR department we get involved in assessment days for recruitment, we also get involved in talent development for our existing employees which is really interesting because we can really help people’s development in their role for the company.

What's it like working at Aliaxis? 

I think I’m really lucky here because as a team we get on really well, we’re able to draw upon expertise within the department, we’ve got lots of knowledge and lots of experience so if I’m stuck on something or need some advice then there’s always people I can draw upon and ask for their advice and input and then talk it through and look at the best solutions for the business or the individual concerned.

I would definitely encourage anyone to join the company, it’s a really professional organisation, really good people to work with. If you speak to anyone in the business that’s currently working here they will say one of the best things about Aliaxis is the people and that’s what makes the organisation, we have a team of really good quality, professional people and that really drives the business forward.

Are there opportunities for progression at Aliaxis? 

Hopefully I’ve achieved lots of things but having worked for the company for a long period of time I can really identify that the business has spent a lot of time and effort and also money in my own development.  

Is there much training and support provided? 

Just recently I’ve been doing my advanced diploma in HR management and the business has permitted me time away from work to do that study and that’s been invaluable really for my own continuous professional development. I feel that I’ve gained a lot for my own career by doing that and also providing a better service to the business. I also think that the business has invested in other thing such as I’ve done first aid at work qualifications, I’ve done a training course on lean manufacturing and it’s really helped me to develop.
