We are looking for a People Associate to join our team in London. Working closely with our Operations & People Lead and Operations Team, your role will be to help us to ensure the growth, development and satisfaction of what we believe to be our greatest asset - our team! This is a great role if you’ve started your People/HR career in recent years and are looking for the next step. You’ll gain all-round HR Generalist skills in a young, dynamic company, and we’ll support your growth and development in return.

At nPlan, we want to inspire the world to forecast correctly and empower it to tackle risk, thanks to our unique ability to forecast the outcomes of construction projects. We can change how construction projects are managed and executed, and a crucial part of getting there is being able to deliver deep insights for very large construction schedules.

  • Your voice will always be heard. What you do or say counts, not who you are or where you're from.
  • We have three core values that underlie everything we do: Learn from Everything, Be Radically Truthful, and Aim High, Run Fast. These enable us to create a collaborative, inclusive environment where we can move effectively and efficiently to implement the best solutions.
