About the Job

Grade/Salary: Grade 9-10, £28,226 – £34,373 FTE (dependant on experience)
Hours: Position 1 – Full Time (37 hours per week), Term Time Only plus 10 days, £25,009 – £30,455 (some flexibility can be negotiated on this, depending on the candidate)

The successful candidates will ensure the provision of a proactive, forward thinking, Trust-minded competent and consistent HR service. You will assist with the implementation and interpretation of HR policies and procedures, employment law and employee relations matters in compliance with statutory obligations and best practice across the Trust. You will oversee cases, provide advice, make decisions independently within the remit of the role on employee relations matters and attend related meetings in a HR advisory capacity as necessary across the Trust.

This is an exciting position at a time when our Trust is entering an ambitious growth phase and the Central Team is in a transitional stage, developing its processes, systems and capabilities for a much-enlarged Trust. The appointee will have exposure to a wide range of HR issues within a school and Trust setting and the opportunity to expand their experience and develop skills. The role will be busy and as a Trust, we are ambitious for growth and the development of our staff and students, which will bring with it a great opportunity for the successful candidate.

As HR Senior Advisor, you will work closely with other members of the HR Team and within the Trust’s Central and Executive Teams, as well as with Managers and the Senior Leadership Teams within each Academy setting.

The successful candidates will have experience of providing advice on employee relations, terms and conditions and contract issues. They will be confident using HR information systems and have a sound knowledge of employment law. A CIPD qualification or significantly working towards one is important as are strong English and maths skills.

The most important skills to ensure success in the role will include the ability to work with others to solve problems, sound judgement and the ability to work collaboratively. This role offers the opportunity to work flexibly and the working days and times are negotiable.

In return, we are able to offer a welcoming Trust with supportive management and a strong programme of staff development.
