Being a trusted, strategic partner. Working with key services. As a HR Business Partner, you’ll enjoy a fulfilling role, helping teams so they can give their all for Gloucestershire’s communities.
The County Council HR team provides a proactive, professional and effective HR service, and you’ll be at the heart of their work. Leading the delivery of workforce strategy and other significant people agenda tasks, you’ll work with service areas that could include Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service and Gloucester City Council.
It’s a chance to build strong, productive relationships with the power to take the organisation forward. A trusted, strategic partner, you’ll provide HR advice across the full range of workforce issues and support elected members, senior managers, trade unions and other partners in meetings.
Clearly, you need to be a great communicator with strong influencing skills. Ideally, you’ll have worked in another large, complex organisation, but it’s your ability to build a rapport that counts. A confident, adaptable self-starter, you’ll be equipped to make a significant contribution to the work of the senior management team. There’ll also be an opportunity to contribute to the development and implementation of workforce plans and major change projects.
Please note that you may be asked to attend the occasional evening meeting.

• Flexible working arrangements
