It’s a big responsibility.


It’s why MMI Group are looking for an exceptional HR and Organisational Design Lead. Someone who shares our passion for exploring the evolution of film; challenging its conventions and continually searching out what’s next.


We imagine you’ll have enviable organisational skills twinned with an openness and authority that even the trickiest personality types warm to and respect. Working alongside a team of people frequently working on high stress projects, you’ll have brilliant emotional intelligence and be able to spot a burgeoning problem before it even registers with most. You’ll have the very latest thinking on team and individual performance at your fingertips. Continually looking to improve your knowledge and skills, you’ll be an avid reader of new studies but, having a critical mind, be able to select the right insights to best evolve our strategies and procedures. You’ll get a real buzz from helping the management team operationalise our values and set and meet HR Goals, KPIs and targets. You’ll be able to clearly articulate the business rational to all stakeholders and keep their focus on them even during more challenging commercial periods. We’re unapologetically bold in everything we do and have set ourselves the initial target of being employer of choice in the Northwest by 2020.


The MMI Group is the largest portfolio of content strategy and film production companies in Northern England (UK). Under our three brands (Magnafi, The Gate Films & Foundry Film Studios), we combine a full strategic agency set up with the largest TV commercial and content production engine outside London incorporating a studio complex & post-production facilities. You’ll work side by side with film directors, technologists, producers, designers, documentary makers, creatives, digital planners, motion graphics artists to name just a few.  It’s an unusual collection of skills all under one roof but it’s a set-up which our growing number of clients absolutely love.


And to continue to lead in this space, we recruit on a strong set of values born from a collective pride, ambition and inventiveness. Our shared ethos means we can run through walls together. The first question you’ve got to ask yourself is – are you with us?
