Bedfordshire Police, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Constabularies (BCH) are looking to recruit experienced HR Consultants to join their collaborated HR team based at Huntingdon or Bedford. 

This is an exciting time to join BCH with the HR function embarking upon a period of transformation to better reflect the business needs of the policing service it supports. Our multi-disciplined HR team delivers to a collaboration of local forces and departments with wide ranging priorities and we are implementing an ambitious new operating model that will provide strategic oversight and support local working. 

Whilst our HR Query Team provides a one stop shop for immediate queries, more complex cases are routed to the Consultancy Team who will provide HR customers with access to expert advice and guidance on a wide variety of employment matters including complex pay matters, contract variations, attendance, conduct, performance, grievances and restructuring.  The teams are aligned to the business and based locally to establish effective working relationships with managers.  
Reporting to the Senior HR Consultant, the HR Consultant will work independently and manage their own portfolio of case work. They will take ownership and accountability for supporting managers in their allocated business area and will work proactively until there is a satisfactory conclusion to their cases. They will encourage managers to become self-supporting in employment matters, providing upskill and development as required. Digitally focussed, they will identify areas where improvements can be made to both guidance and processes. 
You will be a Level 5 Associate member of the CIPD or have equivalent experience. With an in-depth working knowledge of employment law, you will also be a problem solver with a proven track record of applying HR policies and providing expert advice on a high level of case work including employee relations, change management and other HR matters requiring professional input. You will be a confident communicator with the ability to prepare and deliver complex HR information and advice to a range of different audiences. Customer focussed, you will always see the bigger picture, be innovative in your thinking and collaborative in your approach. 

We have full and part-time vacancies in the following locations:

•    Huntingdon
•    Kempston (Bedford)

Please note that while you will be expected to work to a dedicated police force or business area, travel across the three sites in Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire will be required. 

Further information on the roles can be obtained from Christina Allen, HR Consultancy Manager (
