The Southwark skyline is an impressive sight. The incredibly diverse range of buildings, offices and social facilities make it a real mix of old and new.
With its vibrant, energetic feel, Southwark is a very attractive place to work if you relish the challenges of a dynamic and inner city context where complexity, change and energy are high.
We’re continually looking to support the growth of talent and to develop our workforce. So our employees are given the support, knowledge and opportunities they need to develop and deliver results that really improve the quality of life for our citizens.
We have exciting and varied opportunities for Human Resources Business Partners who will deliver and maintain a business focused HR service. Working with Southwark at an exciting time, you will have the credibility and confidence together with a detailed understanding of a complex public sector organisation to work closely with, and coach, managers to meet their current and future people needs whilst always work to make Southwark more equal and just.
These roles will provide you with an opportunity to play an integral part in delivering organisational and cultural change that we believe will help us achieve our vision for a Fairer Future for our residents.
You will be supporting Directors and senior managers across a varied workload and will need to quickly build positive and effective relationships to deliver the best outcomes across the employee life-cycle including resourcing, performance management, complex employee relations cases, learning & development, change management and exit management.
You will have excellent interpersonal and influencing skills. The broad scope of the role requires a solutions-focused approach, supported by well-developed analytical planning, excellent practice knowledge and strong organisational skills.
