An excellent opportunity has arisen for an experienced and passionate Senior HR Advisor to join our friendly team and help drive transformational change across our organisation’s people and performance practices.

This is an exciting time to join us, following last years’ launch of an ambitious 5-year strategy and the set-up of a new Senior Leadership team.  We have identified as a key organisational priority, a required step-change in the investment into the performance, diversity and impact of our people and need to re-engineer our practices to deliver the strategy.

The key areas of focus for this diverse role comprise of upskilling line manager capability, managing a diverse range of employee relations issues, playing a key role in supporting the implementation of our people strategy and involvement in HR projects. This role will maximise impact through coaching and business partnering team leaders and lead the re-alignment of management tools, policies and guidance.

We’ll expect you to challenge the status quo by implementing new initiatives and developing projects to improve the standard of our people management.

With your HR Advisor track record and CIPD, or equivalent, qualification, it goes without saying that you have up-to-date knowledge of employment law and experience of business partnering, complex employee relations and staff management. What makes you perfect for this role is your excellent communication skills, ability to build value-add relationships at all levels and deliver impact through a strong coaching technique.

We offer a competitive range of benefits, a good work/life balance, excellent learning and development opportunities and a vibrant and friendly organisational culture.
