This is a Trust vacancy and therefore travel between our two sites at Richard Taunton College in Southampton and St Vincent College in Gosport will be a requirement. We will negotiate a permanent base for the successful candidate post interview.
We are seeking a highly organised, efficient and customer focused HR Advisor to join our friendly, professional and busy HR and Payroll team following a period of growth within the department. Reporting to the HR Operations Manager, the HR Advisor will provide support and guidance to management and wider staff on all aspects of human resources, including employee relations, employee engagement, absences, disciplinaries and grievances, health and wellbeing.
Some of your duties will include:
• Providing employee advice on all HR and people related matters;
• Being the first point of contact for advising and assisting management with all employment, HR and people related matters;
• Assisting with on-boarding of new starters into the organisation and managing the employee lifecycle
Please refer to the job description for main duties and responsibilities of the post.
The successful candidate will be fully CIPD qualified (or working towards the qualification), with good experience of providing support and advice to employees and managers. A background working in the education environment would be preferred, but it is not essential. The HR Advisor will be able to manage a busy and varied workload, be confident to work on their own initiative and have the ability to bring a positive and professional approach to interactions with a wide range of internal and external contacts.
Accuracy and an eye for detail are vital, alongside organisation and time management skills, to ensure deadlines are met. Our ideal candidate will be someone with focus who is used to working in a busy and varied office environment where no two days are the same.
All successful candidates will be required to complete an enhanced DBS disclosure.
