Job description

You’ll work closely with Headteachers to drive school improvement through effective and professional HR advice and support across the full employee life-cycle.

Due to the continued expansion of our Multi-Academy Trust, we are recruiting an additional HR Manager who will work collaboratively and flexibly with the existing HR Manager in supporting a number of primary and secondary academies and our sixth-form college.

This could involve managing employee relations cases and dealing with HR policy queries, advising on & supporting restructures, upskilling line managers and academy-based colleagues with HR responsibilities, and supporting cultural change. You will also support the Trust’s growth through working with schools as they go through the process of joining us, and have the opportunity to lead on allocated areas of responsibility across the whole of the Trust.

CIPD qualified (or equivalent), you will have previous experience of advising on a wide range of employee issues within a school or local authority setting.  A team-player with great organisational skills and the ability to work on your own initiative, you are able to build strong working relationships with, and influence the work of others, and are flexible, self-motivated & resilient.

You will be required to travel between academies in the Greater Manchester area regularly, and will also provide occasional support on case work for academies elsewhere in the Trust (which currently includes West Yorkshire, Staffordshire and the Wirral). Own transport and a willingness to travel and work flexibly (with due notice) is therefore essential.
