7,000 people, one global focus – enhancing the health and well-being of pets, people, and livestock.

We are passionate about what we do at IDEXX – and why wouldn’t we be? When you’re working to raise the standard of care for pets, make drinking water safe for billions and keep our livestock population around the globe healthy and free of disease, it’s no wonder that what we do each day is more than just a job. There’s an energy across IDEXX that is contagious – where caring and committed people come together to make things better.

Reporting to the People Operations Manager Europe, we are looking for talented HR professionals to join our European People Operations team (location Germany, Stuttgart area or the Netherlands, Amsterdam area). HR at IDEXX has gone through significant transformation in the last 2 years, moving from a generalist model to a specialist model comprised of HR Business Partnering, People Operations (HR Administration) & COE’s (e.g. Talent Acquisition, Learning & Development). In addition to the model change, we have also gone live with the core module of Workday in October and we will go live with the Recruitment module in Q2, 2018, so upgrading our HR Information System which in turn now necessitates a different engagement between our People Operations team and the business. We will continue to build out Workday in the next 1-2 years so that we have a complete end to end HRIS ecosystem within IDEXX.

At our European HQ in the Netherlands, we support +15 countries and have the largest representation of centralized HR support sitting here alongside the regional management, and with an HQ employee population of about 500 in the Netherlands, 700 employees in Germany, Switzerland and Austria and a total of 2000 across Europe.

We are looking for HR talent with solid experience within HR Administration / People Operations in Germany and preferably Switzerland of Austria. You should feel comfortable in a shared service set up where you will provide specialist support to your dedicated markets. To be successful in this, you should speak native (or near native) German and English. Another European language would be a pre. Furthermore, we prefer you should have previously extended support to different countries, building your familiarity with local legislative implications on the HR administrative space. You should feel comfortable working within our HR operating model and have understanding in the interdependencies between the different specialist areas within HR, including handover of duties, SLA’s and how to maximize the engagement within HR to get the best support to the business. You need to bring best practice, but not be afraid to come into an organization where you will still need to contribute to building this out.
