The starting salary is £76,843, which includes allowances totalling £2,841
Closing date

The salary is broken down as £74,002 basic salary, which will increase annually until you reach the top of the scale £85,474.  Plus, a location allowance of £1,841 and a non-pensionable allowance of £1,000.

More trust. Less crime. High standards – that’s our two-year mission plan. To turn it into reality, we’ve created the People Performance Improvement Team (PPIT). In this newly formed unit, you’ll be a manager, overseeing the delivery of HR services that will make a critical Impact. Join us – and give our team the support to give their best for London.  

Reporting to the Director of People Performance, your main task will be overseeing and managing the delivery of HR services. It’s a chance to play a crucial role in ensuring the effective functioning of the HR People Performance Team (PPIT) and provide support to a workforce of approximately 50,000 individuals. 

Day to day, you’ll lead a team of HR experts and administrators while maintaining strong relationships with internal stakeholders. In particular, you’ll work closely with HR Business Partners to provide an outstanding service that’s in line with the needs of the Metropolitan Police Services (MPS). The key is to draw on your expertise in HR practices and navigate the unique challenges of the MPS. You’ll therefore need significant experience as an HR Practitioner, gained in a policing environment. 

With this background, you’ll be a credible HR professional, with an understanding of HR practices, policies, and compliance requirements of diversity, equality, health and safety and other HR-related legislation. If you’re not CIPD qualified (or equivalent) already, you’ll be working towards accreditation. Either way, you’ll have broad knowledge of HR issues and understand the links to wider areas of the organisation. But what will really make the difference is clear communication. You should be adept at building relationships and gaining the trust of colleagues while working with an array of partners. And finally, you should be quick to learn about basic policies so you can advise Local Resource Planning Managers and Performance Team colleagues. Analytical, consultative and always organised, you’ll be at the core of PPIT and a trusted manager.

Why join us? Besides the rewarding nature of the job itself, a competitive salary and a Civil Service pension, you'll benefit from excellent career and professional development.
