Creative, experienced HR professional required.
We are looking for a HR Advisor providing an excellent professional HR Service, working in a modern, business focussed way.
You will initially be part of our dedicated schools team providing a HR service to over 150 schools and academies across Kirklees. Your work will have a casework focus and will involve providing advice largely on a face to face basis on the full range of HR activity including employee relations, attendance, organisational change and TUPE. You will develop strong and positive partnerships with Head Teachers and managers, providing advice and support as required.
You will have a broad experience of the major HR functions together with knowledge of associated HR procedures and practical casework experience to be able to work on multiple cases simultaneously. Ideally you’ll be either CIPD qualified or have experience that demonstrates the ability to work at this level
If you thrive working in a fast paced environment with a variety where no two days will be the same this could be the job for you. We offer the flexibility to work in the office, in schools and from home; organisational skills and being comfortable working independently using your own initiative will be key.
We value the strong partnerships we have developed with Head Teachers and school management and as such you will require strong interpersonal skills in this role. The right behaviours and attitudes are as important to us as the skills you bring to the job. We are looking for people with sound judgement skills, a creative solutions based approach and the ability to provide advice on a range of complex issues. You will be joining a friendly, experienced professional team and will have opportunities for personal and career development.
