About The Role

Being the Head of People now will be very different to next year and the year after that. Priority number one is maintaining and calibrating the Great Wrap culture as it exists now whilst we grow rapidly. Your job will be to make sure we have everything we need as a team to grow as a happy, purpose filled team seamlessly.

We are doing something that truly is making the planet a better place and we want our team to be excited and proud of the journey we are on. Currently our team feels happy, motivated and challenged. You will be the exemplar of this culture.



  • The Head of People will design and implement systems to recruit, onboard, and retain A-grade talent, creating a value-aligned company culture operating at its highest potential.
  • Integrate our values company-wide, and ensure it's a useful framework.
  • Refine and manage our on-boarding process, allowing new team members to feel great on their first day and hit the ground running.
  • Design & implement performance management practices and make sure the team is constantly refreshed and up to date with this knowledge.

  • Build the People team that allows us to accomplish all of these things, including Recruiting, People Ops and any other key roles we need to fill to be successful.

About You

  • You’ve seen what great People practices look like in a high-growth company. You are eager to build-out the entire function from scratch.

  • You have built teams and know what good recruiting looks like.
  • You have a solid understanding of People Operations including things like payroll, benefits, HRIS, and other infrastructure needs we will need to onboard with.


One of the greatest things about this role is you get to change the world. You are in charge of removing millions of kilograms of plastic waste from the environment every year! Being that you are responsible for this, then we want you to have ownership of the company too. In this role you will receive a percentage of the company or ESOP.
