  • Overseeing the monthly payroll process in conjunction with the Head of Finance
  • Overseeing the operation of staff surveys, including analysis and benchmarking 
  • Managing contracts and supplier relationships for employee related services such as employee assistance and occupational health

  • Previous experience of delivering a holistic HR service for an SME scale organisation, ideally gained in a public sector environment
  • Experience of providing sound advice across employee relations, performance management, learning and development, recruitment and diversity and inclusion to a professional client management group 
  • Experience of supporting a senior management team in the development and implementation of a broad-based HR strategy
  • Experience of overseeing the administration and effective use of a range of HR systems, including operation of self-service systems, applicant tracking systems and other online platforms, ensuring compliance with data protection principles 
  • Knowledge of project management methodologies to ensure successful delivery of critical cross-functional initiatives
