The Haerens Group is a strongly growing family-owned company, active in high-tech fire and security doors, international museum installations and high-tech glass under the Eribel, Meyvaert and Haerens brands. Our team consists of more than 280 employees in 2 production sites in Belgium and several hubs abroad. We work in a challenging environment, constantly welcoming new colleagues due to acquisitions and expansions. We are looking for an HR manager to strengthen our ambitious HR team.

This is just the thing for me


  • Working closely with the Talent Development Manager and Group Recruitment manager, you will assume a generalist HR role (recruitment and selection, onboarding, training needs, retention, well-being, leadership coaching, payroll and personnel administration).  In doing so, you will manage 1 HR Officer.
  • You give direction to the entire HR policy, both via processes and structures and by defining and propagating an ambitious HR vision.
  • Based on your expertise in all HR domains, you are the first point of contact for complex HR issues. In your approach, you show business awareness and formulate substantiated final conclusions and finished advice.
  • You are a pivotal figure in guiding change processes and make your mark on the further design of the organisational structure.
  • You are an inspiring contact, confidant and sparring partner for each of our employees. You maintain close contact with the population in a proactive and enterprising manner. 
  • With a view to the further professionalisation of HR, you determine relevant KPIs and set up dashboards to monitor them. Based on a thorough analysis of these figures, you take decisions and provide advice to the business.
  • Besides your local responsibility in Belgium, as HR manager you help outline our HR policy for several foreign hubs. The basic principle here is: "standardise where possible, differentiate where necessary".

Your profile

  • Education at Master level with extensive experience in HR
  • Languages: Dutch, English and French
  • Strategic thinking and vision combined with a pragmatic approach
  • An inspiring manager with good leadership skills
  • Sincere interest in people - a listening ear

  • You have extensive experience in setting out (hard and soft) HR policy within growing organisations.
  • You are a strategic partner who naturally gives direction while keeping your finger on the pulse of the work field.
  • You have excellent people skills and proven management skills. 
  • Through your natural empathy, you show interest and respond appropriately to signals from your professional environment. You quickly notice tensions, resistances or conflict situations and make these negotiable.
  • You are strong in change and project management. 
  • You enjoy analysing complex situations, identifying underlying links to arrive at a nuanced and accurate picture and formulating conclusions and advice on that basis.
  • You are curious and inquisitive by nature.

We offer

  • A dynamic growth company in full development as part of a large group
  • A position in which autonomy, initiative and responsibility are encouraged
  • Close positive team atmosphere in which cooperation takes precedence 
  • A progressive HR policy, on which you have a part in making an impact

  • Company car and fuel card
  • 12 ADV days on top of the legal holidays
