Compensation & Benefits Coordinator (03846)

The role

It all comes down to your personality to drive this role and the two main goals to a successful end. You have a vision on Total Reward strategy and can influence the stakeholders, especially the non C&B leadership team, about what C&B should reflect for the worldwide organisation. You have the talent to convince with charisma, rather than actual power. Political savviness is combined with cultural awareness to include everybody in this new C&B strategy, where ever they are in the world.

You will be supported by the two Compensation and Benefits Specialists in your team, who you will manage on a day to day basis. In this role you will have two main objectives. One is to guide the transition from a Berenschot Compensation and Benefits system for numerous Job Descriptions to a lean and mean Korn Ferry C&B system. This implementation accounts for the approximately 400 employees who are on the payroll of the Operational Centre Amsterdam of MSF.

In the Operational Centre Amsterdam you advise the senior leadership team on the total reward strategy across all staff typology and functions, assuring internal equity and external competitiveness. You promote a better understanding of the C&B approach to the field and HQ, ensuring better compliance with the approved C&B framework.

The other objective is to come to a international intersectional global reward review together with your counterparts of this role worldwide. It is a delicate picture to draw. You will drive and develop the long term Compensation & Benefits strategy at Mission, HQ and Global Level. All is done together with your Compensation and Benefits counterparts from the Operational Centres in Belgium, France, Spain, and Switzerland.
