Human Resources Manager, McCormick Australia


  • Exciting opportunity - true business partnering role with dedicated portfolio
  • Multinational food company – leading employer on the Sunshine Coast
  • Flexible working environment


There's never been a more exciting time to be at McCormick Australia.  We're a respected global flavour leader with more than 12,000 employees across 27 countries. From favourite drinks to iconic burgers and in every aisle in the grocery store, McCormick is flavouring many of the biggest brands you know.  What makes us a great place to work? Simple. We put people first. We champion growth, respect everyone's contributions and do what's right for our business, our people and our planet.  The best part:  we get to bring our passion for flavour to work every day.  Join us on our quest to make every meal and moment better.


Working as a member of our national HR team and reporting to the Australian HR Director, you will be responsible for leading McCormick’s People agenda at our Palmwoods site, directly business partnering the Plant Manager as well as other members of the site leadership team. You will be developing the overall site HR strategy with an ER/IR focus, and providing operational support for management and employees. All elements of the role require close collaboration with the broader HR organisation (global and regional) as well as key senior stakeholders across the wider Australian business unit.


Our Company


What if there was a company who puts people first - people who take what they do seriously, but not themselves? People who strive for excellence, have a great attitude, care for the safety of each other and our consumers, people who are innovative and lead by example - because these are the values necessary for a successful career with McCormick Australia.  McCormick’s Passion for Flavour is brought to life through our consumer brands Gourmet Garden, Keen’s, Aeroplane, French’s and Frank’s. But more than this, we are passionate about our people and our supportive, high performance culture - that’s what it takes to build Australia’s Leading Flavour Company!


Role Responsibilities 


If you become our new HR Manager, you’ll be a key member of the site leadership team at our growing and vibrant Palmwoods site. Here's a taste of some of the things you’ll be involved in:


  • Partnering with the business to lead the implementation of HR programs and initiatives.
  • Providing advice, coaching and support to employees and managers and acting as a first point of contact throughout the entire employee life cycle.
  • Supporting the business in the ’people calendar of events’ including annual performance reviews, talent management, succession planning, workforce planning as well as interesting projects to support our Power of People principle.


Technical Skills & Experience Required 


  • You’re an experienced business partner, you’ve worked in complex businesses, you’ve experienced all sorts of scenarios and you’re comfortable dealing at an executive level and with leaders and people right across the business.
  • You enjoy working in a fast-paced, outcome focused environment where no two days are the same.
  • You’ve previously managed and delivered projects, have an understanding of change management and bring a creative streak and pragmatic approach to you work.


Our ambitions are bold. If you are a change-maker with a passion for flavour and an appetite for a good challenge, come have a seat at our table.  Your application will be treated in strict confidence.  Please send us a cover letter along with your resume.


We are proud to be an equal opportunity employer.  If you are a qualified applicant, you will receive consideration for employment without regard to sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, color, religion, national origin, disability, protected veteran status, age, or any other characteristic protected by law.


United by flavor. Driven by results.

As a McCormick employee you’ll be empowered to focus on more than your individual responsibilities. You’ll have the opportunity to be part of something bigger than yourself—to have a say in where the company is going and how it’s growing.

Between our passion for flavor, our 130-year history of leadership and integrity, the competitive and comprehensive benefits we offer, and our culture, which is built on respect and opportunities for growth, there are many reasons to join us at McCormick.
