​We’re looking for an experienced HR Business Partner/HR Advisor to join this public sector organisation, on a 12-month contract, however it’s envisaged that the role will continue after this initial period.

The closing date for applications is 14th August and interviews will be held on 3rd and 4th September.

You’ll be one of a team of three, who each manage all HR-related activity for one of this organisation’s divisions – working closely with the division’s senior management team to do this. They’re looking for someone who’s CIPD Level 5 qualified as a minimum, however if you’re working towards Level 7 (or already have this), that would be a bonus.

We’re looking for someone with a general HR background, ideally with private and public sector experience, who can demonstrate a strong track record of embedding and managing employee relationship programmes, as this is a focus for the organisation. It’s a busy environment, so you’ll enjoy being kept on your toes, with a varied workload and be someone who strives to find ways to change things, for the better, where you can. You’ll be willing to look at current processes and procedures, including the current approach to wellbeing, to make sure employees’ experience is the best it can be. This organisation is all about having a high performing team and a high performing culture, therefore continuous employee development is also a priority, too.

Person-wise, this role will suit someone who can show initiative and has bundles of enthusiasm to get a great job done.

Although this will be a predominantly home-based role, there will be a need to travel to the office on occasion for meetings – envisaged to be a maximum of once or twice a month – depending on the needs of the division you’re working with.
