Fixed term contract until 31 March 2021

Full time or part time

Our HR Shared Service Team (HRSST) currently have a great opportunity to join them as a Senior HR Adviser (casework) on a fixed term contract until 31st March 2021.

HRSST provides an HR enquiry service via phone and email and HR casework support to all of the four directorates within North Yorkshire County Council and a small but increasing number of external customers. Providing advice and guidance to managers we help develop their skills, knowledge and confidence in managing their staffing issues.  We’re a small, busy team based at County Hall in Northallerton with technology and IT kit that allows us to work from alternative locations including home working when required.  

As Senior HR Adviser you will have the opportunity to draw on your in-depth knowledge of employment legislation and practical case management experience to enable you to take a risk-based approach to providing advice and guidance to managers and your small team of HR Advisers. You will also have your own caseload of more complex and sensitive cases. 

The successful applicant will need to be able to work effectively with Directorate Heads of HR, HR Business Partners and managers, taking approaches that are consistent with the Council’s Corporate Workforce Strategy. You’ll also contribute to policy development as part of a wider HR Portfolio Group. 

What can we offer you in return?

This is a great opportunity for a HR professional to work for a large public sector organisation within an award winning HR service. Initially offered on a fixed-term contract until the end of March 2021 however due to the size of our HR service there is the likelihood of future opportunities.

We are looking to offer a salary of up to £34,788 per annum, in addition we offer 23 days holiday (plus bank holidays) per annum as well as the option to buy additional days leave and the potential to take up to 12 flexi-time days per year. You’ll have access to our discount platform that offers a wide range of benefits such as high street savings through to holiday offers. In addition we offer a cycle to work scheme, health cash plan, and a great workplace pension.

For an informal discussion about the role please contact Liz Beavan, HR Manager of the HR Shared Services team on 01609 536859.
