HR Manager Leeuwarden

For our Laboratory & Quality Services (LQS) in Leeuwarden we are looking for a senior HR professional. Mid 2019 LQS has started a continuous improvement program (WCOM) which resulted in a restructuring impacting their organisation effectiveness, leadership and engagement. 
Key priority for the HR Business Partner is to facilitate the transformation of mindset & behavior:

  • WINWIN behaviour throughout the LQS organisation to drive to excellence. That means we look for people that are purpose driven and share our values. Who are commercially obsessed and want to move with speed and decisiveness. And people who display an owners mindset. Who act as if the company is theirs, focus on what’s good for FrieslandCampina as a whole, drive impact and are mindful about the resources they spend.
  • An optimally equipped organisation with suitably qualified & engaged personnel. 
  • An overall fit-for-purpose career planning for the total organization 

Within FrieslandCampina, LQS serves as independent central laboratory for QC-analyses in raw materials, intermediate and finished products, packaging material, process water and waste water for the various FrieslandCampina Operating Units.
This essential position in the dairy chain of FrieslandCampina demands from LQS to deliver top quality services, i.e. reliable analytical results within the agreed turnaround time. The Leeuwarden facility is unique within FrieslandCampina and an integral part of the group regarding effective quality control across our manufacturing network, undertaking 1.7 million laboratory tests globally.
