Our organisation is growing and we're looking for an HR professional with the right skills and values to join our team.

Your ability to quickly build rapport and credibility and develop effective working relationships will compliment your flexible, outcome focused and resilient approach to supporting organisational change and development.

- an experienced adviser or a business partner seeking an opportunity to be proactively involved in developing an HR hub for a group of academies with potential opportunities for further professional development as the Trust continues to grow.
- or a seasoned HR professional looking to play a lead role in developing an HR hub for a group of academies with potential opportunities for further professional development as the Trust continues to grow.
- You will provide a credible, customer focused, HR service to leadership teams and staff within a designated group of schools; working collaboratively with local leadership teams, providing efficient, professional and effective HR advice and strategies to facilitate the achievement of local and Trust objectives. You will also lead the provision of a high quality efficient and effective Trust HR Administration function for your group of schools and for coaching and developing line manager’s people management practice to guide them to effective solutions. Working closely with the HR colleagues you will aid the development of systems and policies that are aligned with academy and Trust strategies and development plans.
