Big plans, right?

They absolutely are -  that’s why we’re hiring.


The Job

Flo’s success is built on the combined talent of our employees, and we’ve grown quickly. We’ve gone from a couple of hundred people a few years ago, to a multinational business of around 400 people.

This can’t have happened without a superb People and Talent team owning the attraction, retention and motivation of a diverse, international and incredibly driven workforce, from someone’s application right through to them building their career with us.

As a group of 5, the HR Business Partnering team (HRBPs) are one of three teams in the People function. They drive the long-term People strategy here at Flo.

We currently have a vacancy in our team owing to a maternity, but would like to hire someone permanently; first to cover work in Engineering as maternity cover, before then potentially moving to another department. Regardless of the department, on joining us as a HRBP, you’ll have an instrumental part to play as an embedded consultant to your team. 

Having been assigned to them, you’ll be working extremely closely with the Exec team - and their management teams - to help implement fantastic, end-to-end People practices across the group, thereby enabling your department and the company to thrive.

Our Culture

It’s pretty hard to condense a culture down to a few words, but we do all have a few things in common.

We’re problem solvers, we’re adaptable, we’re empathy driven and results led. 

People here like working in a fast-paced, multi-national, multi-cultural and ever changing environment. Everyone has an impact on a powerful mission, and is happy to roll their sleeves up to ideate solutions and put them in place. Being part of a rapidly growing business means that the answers aren’t always there for us already, but that’s okay; it’s part of the excitement!

If this resonates, we might be the right place for you.


We know that building the future of female health isn’t going to be easy, but we’re hoping you’re up for the challenge.
