About the role/person
Samaritans has an exciting opportunity for a motivated, enthusiastic individual to join our Human Resources team as an HR Business Partner. There is enormous support for people-related plans and activities at Samaritans, so this is an exciting time to join the team.
You will work within our small Human Resources team, alongside our Head of HR, HR Adviser and HR Coordinator. This role is an incredible opportunity to bring your generalist HR skills and experience to a relatively new team with big ambitions and plans. You’ll have previous experience of working in an HR Business Partner role and will be confident in HR policy and process best practice and employment law.
The role is focused on providing an excellent HR service to our paid employees at Samaritans. You will be involved in leading operational people plans and activities within your client groups and managing and responding to ER queries.
You will also lead key HR projects to continuously improve what we do and how we do it in HR. The role will be an integral part of how we embed our Samaritans behaviours of Support, Trust, Aspiration and Respect in our workplace.
You will enjoy being involved in a wide variety of work and will be able to flex between working on strategic topics and responding to the day-to-day operational demands of working in a small team. It’s a busy time in the team and you will be able to work well under pressure, whilst also feeling comfortable to ask for help when needed.
At Samaritans, our vision is that fewer people die by suicide. We believe it is preventable and that by working together we can give people the support they need before they reach crisis point. We are one of the most trusted charities in the UK and ROI, and we answer a call for help every six seconds. We have around 175 staff and more than 20,000 volunteers based across 201 branches giving emotional support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We don’t just hear you; we listen.
Our Central Office is located in a converted mill in Ewell, Surrey which is just over 30-minutes by train from Waterloo and 15 minutes from Wimbledon. As an employer we offer a great range of benefits, including 25 days’ holiday, 3 well-being days, flexible working, free parking on-site or nearby, a Health Cash Plan, pension and interest-free season ticket loans.
