HR & Recruitment
Source: uWorkin


The iBuildNew group consisting of iBuildNew.com.au (new home building search portal) and iBuyNew (specialist off-the-plan sales business) is a fast-growing prop tech business. Since first being founded in 2015 the team has grown from 3-4 employee’s to just over 50, and the time has come to introduce greater rigour and professionalism to a range of human resource disciplines across the business and to enable further growth.

Over the year ahead we anticipate the business to move towards 70-80 employee’s, and accordingly greater resource and expertise is needed to drive recruitment (including head hunting), on-boarding and induction of new staff. The business has a strong and developing culture, with a clear vision of what we would like it to be, representing a great opportunity for someone looking to help drive and enhance the organisations culture.

We want to raise the bar on learning and development across the business, ensuring we provide additional support to our team and individuals to maximise their output through continuous development, and thereby reaching or exceeding their goals and targets. 

Role Description:

As the People & Talent Manager you will play an integral role in the growth and development of our team and people across iBuildNew and iBuyNew. You will form part of the group Leadership Team, supporting the executive team (CEO, CIO, GM’s) and other line managers to recruit, onboard, train and retain talent across the business.

With the scaling of the business you will ensure we are appropriately resourced in every area to ensure we can meet our strategic growth goals that we have for the years ahead. You will leverage your human resource management and leadership experience to progressively develop the policies, systems, processes, and procedures to manage a larger team and growing business.

  • Oversee and support the development of the business culture with a focus on being an employer of choice with a strong retention rate – minimising churn and maximising stability and performance of the team will be a major focus. 
  • Manage and oversee the performance review cycle across the business, with a view to improving existing systems and processes, coaching managers, and helping to support and advice on difficult conversations involving under-performance.
  • Drive the execution of cultural improvements, helping to shape the vision and then lead a range of initiatives that bring some culture aspirations to life.
  • Lead and oversee succession planning across the business, including the development of a succession plan for all key roles, supporting the communication of that plan with managers, and helping to co-ordinate transition opportunities. 
  • Manage and oversee legislative requirements with employment contracts, employee relations, OH&S compliance, etc.
  • Manage the development, review and implementation (including training) of all HR related policies and procedures required for a growing business.
  • Establish and oversee an exit interview process and procedure to ensure good learning’s are captured as part of our retention strategy, and also develop out other human resource processes and best practices where needed.
