You will partner closely with the Global HR Operations team, regional and functional HRBPs, under the leadership of the Director of Operations, EMEA & APJ, to drive all aspects of HR Operations in the South EMEA (SEMEA) region.

You like to operate in a structured way but can thrive in ambiguity, adapt quickly to a changing environment, take a global view, are data driven and you know that sometimes laughter is indeed the best solution.

You think big, challenge convention and are excited to help us reinvent what we believe HR should be at Elastic.

You will:

  • Handle all of Elastic's HR Operations activities and programs, aligned with our overall goals and in sync with legal requirements in SEMEA.
  • Own the excellent delivery of the operational HR lifecycle within the SEMEA region: from joiners to leavers, parental leaves to transfers, as well as the preparation of compliance documents and processes.
  • Manage the employee representative processes and content for the SEMEA region: handling the monthly agenda items and notes from the "Comite Social et Economique" in France, and others as the region grows.
  • Scan the compliance and legal landscape, under the mentorship of the HR Operations Director, to flag the meaningful HRIS and HR Operations projects in the region.
  • Be an active team member in the HR Organisation and understand what matters to our people, at all levels within the organisation.
  • Help us use the feedback captured to ensure our operations function is high-performing across the region.
  • Work in alignment with the global operations team and regional HRBP team, to ensure that all activities run efficiently.
  • Partner with internal team on applicable gender pay gap reporting as needed for SEMEA

You:

  • Have passion for People and love to see them thrive in the workplace
  • Find happiness in doing a phenomenal job and thrive as part of a team
  • Have real ambition to improve the employee experience at Elastic in your region
  • A relentless problem-solver: you always focus on the positives and how to address challenges, rather than simply identifying them
  • Are a skilled communicator with excellent self-awareness and clearly communicate across languages and cultures

Required Skills and Experience:

  • The role is Paris-based and must have 3+ years progressive experience in an HR Operations role within SEMEA (experience in France and Spain is essential)
  • Bachelor’s degree required
  • Experience handling compulsory legal HR documentation in France and Spain
  • Experience handling CSE and works councils in France
  • Ability to partner effectively with HR Operations and other teams such as regional HRBPs (i.e., you can work in a matrix reporting environment)
  • Ability to build effective work relationships at all levels of the organization, and with employee representatives
  • Excellent written and verbal communication and presentation skills
  • High degree of integrity and honesty; ability to exercise confidentiality
  • A sense of humor and ability to roll with the punches definitely a plus
